Chicago Daily Tribune, May 5, 1903.
“If the liberties of the American people are ever destroyed, they will fall by the hand of the Roman Catholic cult’s clergy.” –General Lafayette under President George Washington
“The Roman Catholic motto is ourselves alone for fellow Roman Catholics. We must defeat all heretics (non Catholics) at the ballot box. The holy father states that negative tactics are fatal. The demands of the holy father (the pope) are that the public services should be 100% Roman Catholic soon. Care must be taken that no suspicion may be raised when Roman Catholics are secretly given more government jobs than Protestants, Jews and other heretics.” -Archbishop Gilroy
“There is, ere long, to be a state religion in this country, and that state religion is to be the Roman Catholic.”

Speaking of the time, about 500 A.D., when the Roman Empire was crumbling to pieces:] “No, the [Catholic] Church will not descend into the tomb. It will survive the Empire . . . At length a second empire will arise, and of this empire the Pope will be the master–more then this, he will be the master of Europe. He will dictate his orders to kings who will obey them”–Andrea Lagarde, The Latin Church in the Middle Ages, 1915, p. vi.

“But Constitutions can be changed, and non-Catholic sects may decline to such a point that the political proscription [ban] of them may become feasible and expedient.

HOLY OFFICE STILL EXISTS
Pope John Paul II Revives Inquisition
The thought of a revived Holy Office of the Inquisition would pacify some and offend others. Nevertheless, the “Holy Office” still exists. Only it’s name has been changed. Pope John Paul II has been instrumental in its revival. One may argue that this Ratzinger run agency is merely an attempt by the Catholic Church to root out communism or backslidden priests and their practices. However, with John Paul II’s objective to implement “God’s mandate” by creating a global church-state which will administer from traditional Roman Catholic theology, is enough cause for alarm. Malachi Martin has already stated in his book, “The Keys of this Blood,” that the pope will not tolerate any belief systems that oppose his, not on a civil or church level. In John Paul II the world will behold a tyrant who will coldly execute direct orders against those whom he deems are heretics or immoral. Moreover, like his papal predecessors, John Paul II will carry out his “Godly mandate” in the name of Christ, or perhaps Mary. May God help us all. -By Kathleen R. Hayes Feb 1991, NRI Trumpet Page 3
The Encyclical of Pope Pius X, issued in 1864, asserted:
the right to require the State not to leave any man free to profess his own religion;
the right to employ force;
the right to claim dominion in temporal things;
the right to have the entire control of public schools;
the right to hold princes and kings in subjection;
the right to treat all marriages as invalid which are not solemnized according to the forms of the Council of Trent;
the right to prevent the State granting to immigrants the public exercise of their own worship;
the right to require the State not to permit free expression of opinion;
“The Pope’s authority is unlimited, incalculable; it can strike, as Innocent III says, wherever sin is; it can punish every one; it allows no appeal and is itself Sovereign Caprice; for the Pope carries, according to the expression of Boniface VIII, all rights in the Shrine of his breast. As he has now become infallible, he can by the use of the little word, “orbi,” (which means that he turns himself round to the whole Church) make every rule, every doctrine, every demand, into a certain and incontestable article of Faith. No right can stand against him, no personal or corporate liberty; or as the [Roman Catholic] Canonists put it-“The tribunal of God and of the pope is one and the same.”-Ignaz von Dollinger, “A Letter Addressed to the Archbishop of Munich” 1871; as quoted in MacDougall, The Acton Newman Relations (Fordham University Press) pp. 119,120.
During the Reagan administration, President Ronald Reagan, after much pressure, appointed an ambassador to VATICAN CITY! When W. Kenneth Dan was asked why we need an ambassador in Vatican City, He replied; “It would allow the USA to influence the political decisions of the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH!”
THIS LITERALLY VIOLATES THE FIRST AMENDMENT!AMENDMENT I. :Religious establishment prohibited. Freedom of speech, of the press, and right to petition. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Vatican claims power over ALL Churches

“Protestantism has not, and never can have, any right where Catholicity has triumphed.” (Catholic Review, June 1875)
“Religious liberty is merely endured until the opposite can be carried into effect without peril to the Catholic Church.” (Rt. Rev. O’Connor, Bishop of Pittsburgh.)
“It no longer can be said today that the U.S. is a Protestant country.” –Cardinal Strich of Chicago, quoted in Time Magazine, Aug. 5, 1955 “
“It is error to believe that Every man is free to embrace and profess that religion which, guided by the light of reason, he shall consider true.” Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus (of Errors), Issued in 1864, Section III, Indifferentism, Latitudinarianism, #15.
“It is error to believe that hence it has been wisely decided by law, in some Catholic countries, that persons coming to reside therein shall enjoy the public exercise of their own peculiar worship.” Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus (of Errors), Issued in 1864, Section X, Errors Having Reference to Modern Liberalism, #78.
“It is error to believe that Moreover, it is false that the civil liberty of every form of worship, and the full power, given to all, of overtly and publicly manifesting any opinions whatsoever and thoughts, conduce more easily to corrupt the morals and minds of the people, and to propagate the pest of indifferentism.” Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus (of Errors), Issued in 1864, Section X, Errors Having Reference to Modern Liberalism, #79.
“This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it….a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.
“Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice.” Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos (On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism), Encyclical promulgated on August 15, 1832, #14 & 15.
“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ… ” Revelation 12:17
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”– Revelation 12:11
