Hi,
Does anybody know anything about the American TFP.  I had never heard of them until I picked up a copy of their magazine today, called "Crusade". I skimmed through it. It looks pretty good.
Are they in union with the Church? I did not see any doctrinal/theological stance statements on their website or in their magazine.

they're a cult. stay away away away.

(one of the weirdest threads ever in the history of FE involved this group. I can't find the thread. someone who is more forum savy who remembers the thread should find it)

Wow. That thread entails a lot of reading. (more than I have time for !!)
...seems like the same old story. People within the organization say that they are legitimate and in union with the Church and the people outside it attack it call it heretical. ::)
I'm more confused now than before I asked the question although I will stay away from it.
I wasn't thinking of joining or anything. 'just asking for the sake of knowing.

Thanks, neel.
Are they not connected to Bishop DiCastro-Meyer's Society of Tradition, Family and Property?

I don'y know about His Lordship's affiliation with the Brazilian TFP. but they are definitely part of the worldwide TFP movement which originated in Brazil.
I have about the same reaction to TFP that I have to TIA. They're intriguing subcultures, but I remain a bit ambivalent about their general identification of not just elitism, but a kind of neo-feudalism, with what they present as a truly Catholic worldview. At the end of the day, I just don't think I can take them altogether seriously, though as someone with a contrarian and fairly anti-bourgeois bent, I can empathize with their need to praise things like foxhunting and orders of chivalry.
C,mon
The red capes they wear  at their rallies r classic.

Bishop De Castro Mayer disassociated himself from them, I understand.

I read their headline:

Socialist Intervention in the Private Sector is Not True Health Care Reform

Our monetarist country clearly intervenes in the private sector,. provides previously unprecedented rights to certain individuals:

- only state licensed individuals can heal, limiting the faculties of the 99% majority

- ant invention which should be used for the benefit of everyone is appropriated through the laws of intellectual property (patent, copyright) providing the access to the research and development only for a privileged few.

The 'p' from the tfp is 'property', including those 'rights' above. It seems to me, that the 't=tradition' 'f-family' is just disguise to defend the opression of the disadvantaged.
