Larry Brigden on Rome’s current support for the Critical Text and the United Bible Societies:

“Whenever in the past Rome could not ‘altogether prevent the Holy Scriptures from being translated and circulated, she has made no scruple of falsifying the text’.[2]  Hence, the use of the corrupt Critical Text by the United Bible Societies is consistent with Rome’s purposes, and she will consequently lend support to such a work.  On the other hand, if the Received Text were to be used, Rome would doubtless take a different view.”

Bridgen backs up this latter statement with the fact that Rome has never published any Bible translated from the Masoretic and Received texts.
