“It has served us well, this myth of Christ” -Pope Leo X
“The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is POWER. Power in its most despotic exercise. Absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms,; and at the same time the greatest and the most enormous of abuses.” (Memorial of the Captivity of Napoleon at St. Helena, by General Montholon)
“This War (Civil war) would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons. Though there were great differences of opinion between the South and the North on the question of slavery, neither Jeff Davis nor any of the leading men of the Confederacy would have dared to attack the North, had they not relied on the promises of the Jesuits, that, under the mask of democracy, the money and the arms of the Roman Catholics, even the arms of France, were at their disposal, if they would attack us. I pity the priests, the bishops and the monks of Rome in the United States, when the people realize that they are in great part, responsible for the tears and the blood shed in the war. I conceal what i know, for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and at once, take a tenfold more savage and bloody character. It would become merciless as all religious wars are. It would become a war of extermination on both sides. The protestants of both the North and South, would surely unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits if they could hear what Professor Morse (inventor of Morse code) has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome to destroy this republic, and if they could learn how the priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores under the pretext of preaching their religion, instructing the people in their schools, taking care of the sick.. are nothing else but the emissaries of the pope.. to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, Mexico, Spain and wherever else there are any people who want to be free.” (Abraham Lincoln)
“The Mormon and the Jesuit priests are equally the uncompromising ENEMIES of our Constitution and our laws; but the more dangerous of the two is the Jesuit- the romish priest, for he knows better how to conceal his hatred under the mask of friendship and public deeds for the glory of God…. So many plots have already been made against my life, that it is a real miracle that they have all failed, when we consider that the great majority of them were in the hands of the skillful Roman Catholic murderers, evidently trained by Jesuits. But Can we expect that God will make a perpetual miracle to save my life? I believe not. ..My escape from their hands, since the letter of the pope to Jeff Davis has sharpened a million of daggers to pierce my breast, would be more than a miracle. But just as the Lord heard no murmur from the lips of Moses when he told him that he had to die, before crossing the Jordan, for the sins of his people; so i hope and pray that he will hear no murmur from me when i fall for my nations sake. .. (Abraham Lincoln)
Horrors from the Archbishop’s Files:
“The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles released summaries of its confidential files, which document how local church leaders for decades ducked the responsibility of dealing with scores of priests accused of sexually molesting children. The files show that the nation’s largest archdiocese responded to abuse accusations by moving suspected priests to new assignments or giving them counseling–not notifying police or parishioners. “The release of the summaries, which a church attorney said was done over objections from lawyers for some of the accused priests, is tied to negotiations to settle more than 560 sex-abuse lawsuits, which reportedly could cost the archdiocese more than $500 million.” U.S. News and World Report, October 24, 2005.
“The letters inscribed in the Pope’s miter are these ‘VICARIUS FILII DEI’. which is the Latin for ‘VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.’ Catholics hold that the church, which is a visible society, must have a visible head. Christ, before his ascension into heaven, appointed St. Peter to act as His representative… Hence to the Bishop of Rome, as head of the church, was given the title, ‘VICAR OF CHRIST’.” Our Sunday Visitor, (Catholic Weekly) “Bureau of information,” Huntington, Ind., April 18, 1915.“The letters inscribed in the Pope’s miter are these ‘VICARIUS FILII DEI’. which is the Latin for ‘VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.’ Catholics hold that the church, which is a visible society, must have a visible head.

“When in 1797, Pope Pius VI fell grievously ill, Napoleon gave orders that in the event of his death no successor should be elected to his office, and the Papacy should be discontinued. But the Pope recovered. The peace was soon broken: Berthier entered Rome on the tenth of February, 1798, and proclaimed [Rome to be] a republic. The aged Pontiff refused to violate his oath by recognizing it, and was hurried from prison to prison in France. Broken with fatigue and sorrows, he died on the seventeenth of August, 1799, in the French fortress of Valence, aged 82 years. No wonder half of Europe thought Napoleon’s veto would be obeyed, and that with the Pope, the Papacy was dead.”–Joseph Rickaby, The Modern Papacy, p. 1.
“No person shall preach without the permission of his Superior. All preachers shall explain the Gospel according to the Fathers. They shall not explain futurity or the times of Antichrist!“ –Pope Leo X, 1516
“Religious persecution began long before the Christian era began–in fact it runs through the whole history of religion. In Rome, all citizens were required by law to conform to Roman religion so that the gods would protect the state“.-A.C. Flick’s, Rise of the Mediaeval Church p. 91
“Historically, Constantine’s significance lies not in the fact that he was a Christian, personally, but that he for the first time endowed the new religion with that worldly power which made it for over one thousand years the most powerful moral, social, and political agency the world has seen” —The Rise of the Mediaeval Church, by Alexander Clarence Flick, p 126
RCC forefathers didn’t agree
Catholic ForeFathers DIDN’T agree!
“Opposition began as early as the use of images. Irenaeus in the second century (167AD) denounced the practice. Tertullian (192AD), quoting the second of the Ten Commandments, severely denounced all the use of images as sinful. Clement of Alexandria (192AD) took the same view. Origen also based his opposition to the practice upon the Jewish interpretation. Minutius Felix (220AD) argued that man was the image of God, hence there was no need of any artificial representations. Lactantius (303AD) took the same view…Eusebius, in replying to a request from Constantia for an image of Christ, wrote a famous letter in opposition to the practice which virtually became the platform of the iconoclastic party. St. Augustine (393AD) declared that ‘It is unlawful to set up such an image to God in a Christian temple’. Epiphanius (402AD) with His own hands tore down a curtain which had an image on it in a little church in Palestine” A.C. Flick, Rise of the Mediaeval Church, p. 276
