About the Author

Dr. Don Felix Sarda y Salvany was a priest and author, born in 1844 near Barcelona. Over the course of forty years, he discussed all the current issues of his time with the understanding of the Catholic faith, as director of the Revista periodical. His potent work entitled Liberalism Is a Sin succeeds in exposing, in very clear terms, the intrinsic evil of liberalism and Catholic liberalism, and was first published in 1899 by the B. Herder Book Company. The work was also retypeset by TAN in 1993. Father Salvany died in 1916.

Format: Paperback
Liberalism Is a Sin is a powerful book written in Spain in 1886 and its content is more relevant today than when it first appeared. Although written from a Catholic perspective, this book is an eye-opener for catholics as well as for open-minded non-catholics. The moral depravity existing in our country today is a consequence of liberalism (pervasive in television, movies, literature, public and private morals) deeply enmeshed in our society. Liberalism asserts the sovereignty of the individual and social reason and enthrones Rationalism in the seat of authority. "It knows no dogma except the dogma of self-assertion." You will learn in this book that the non-logical thinking of liberalism which infects so many people today is the rebellion of the human intellect against God. This book contains the answers to the questions that people today are almost universally asking, "What has happened to our society? What is wrong?" I highly recommend this book..

-Why I Read This Book
I found this book through some conversations with my friend, who had read selections of it online. (The entire book is available online for free.) At the time, I was in the process of converting to traditional Catholicism, and I was interested in seeing Fr. Sarda's refutation of liberalism in more detail, especially since I had once self-identified as a liberal.

-Positives
This book defines liberalism broadly, as the rejection of God's - and subsequently, the Church's - authority. Thus liberalism is really wider in scope than mere political liberalism. Two points have really resounded with me. 1) Since Satan was the first to reject God, **Satan was the first liberal**. 2) Because all Protestants reject the Catholic Faith and the Church's authority, **all Protestants are liberals**. I find this second point rather ironic when reflecting on American politics, where we constantly and erroneously describe the Protestant "fundamentalist right" as conservative. In fact, they are extreme liberals.

Fr. Sarda also addresses those who reject the Syllabus of Errors, which nearly all self-described "Catholics" do today. These people are liberals who reject the Church's authority. His discussion is pertinent to the Novus Ordo (those who follow the Second Vatican Council), who reject many of the previous Church teachings on such topics as religious freedom and salvation (i.e. ex ecclesiam nulla salus). Because the Novus Ordo rejects Church teachings, it is just as liberal as Protestantism.

-Negatives?
None. Liberals will either hate this book because of their own bad wills, or they will be converted.

-Final Thoughts
I may some day buy a case of these books to distribute at my chapel. I believe this book is especially important because many of those who consider themselves "traditionalist" Catholics have fallen into liberal errors and may not even realize it. This book is highly recommended.

Before reading this book, I was neoconservative (often called a "classical" liberal). That is to say, I accepted the very basic principles of Liberalism while rejecting some of the more radical elements established during the 20th century. After reading this book, however, I can now say that I am a "classical" conservative. Don Sarda reveals in an easily understood manner the errors of Liberalism, especially how even the smallest amount of it is poisonous. Neoconservatism is just the first step in the process that produces the philosophies of communism, radical feminism, and other errors of "modern" society. Liberalism is a Sin articulates the idea of a Catholic state well, and explains how human reason is not and should not be the sole arbiter of what becomes law or what opinions we should hold. Though it was written well over 100 years ago, everyone, especially conservatives, should make it one of the books at the top of his or her to-read list- if only to see what 19th century conservative theory was like.

This book is a warning and condemnation of what today can be described as religious pluralism and indifferntism. The word used at the time of the writing of this book for that is "liberalism," and hence this book is not about the political ideology per se. This is one of those books that will get you pumped up and motivated to be much more serious about your faith. Words and phrases are not sugar-coated, and a spade is called a spade. Though published around 1900, the book is extremely applicable today. It has about 30 short chapters, each answering and looking at different aspects of liberalism, such as what it is, how to recognize it, what to do about it, etc. It is quite sobering to read this book, knowing that it was published so long ago, and read the harsh words the author has to say about this sin of sins, realizing how much worse things have gotten and how deeply liberalism has been ingrained into our culture.

The author points out all the different faces of liberalism, including the worst kind, the so-called Catholic liberal. This is the most dangerous because he acts as a wolf in sheep's clothing, masquerading as a Catholic concerned about the Faith. Being so much a part of a culture where liberalism is taken for granted, it is easy for a Catholic to fall victim to subtle liberal doctrines, even unconscionably, and this book gives very good advice and reminders to avoid such thinking and actions.
