Likely To Create Anarchy Or Despotism

AnarchytagI have produced some facts that admit of no denial, and I put the question, confidently, to every honest and sensible Protestant in England or America, who is unwarped by prejudice or interest, whether the cause of liberty is not in danger, and likely to decline, if we any longer submit to or acquiesce in the doctrines of Popery! And I ask every reflecting American in particular, whether the influence which Popery has now in this country, is not likely to create anarchy, or even despotism amongst us, though we may preserve the forms of a free constitution!

The Future Must Not Belong To Protestants

At least, according to America’s last president, who stated in 2012 that “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” which pretty much by definition includes Protestants:

And America’s current president, who stated on October 20, 2016 at the Al Smith Dinner that “We can also agree on the need to stand up to anti-Catholic bias, to defend religious liberty and to create a culture that celebrates life.”  No similar statement that I know of has been made in favor of Protestants or Bible believers:

These statements show the American government has allied itself with Islam and Catholicism, as the Bible predicted the kings of the earth would do:

Revelation 16:13-14:  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

As John Gill wrote in his Exposition of the Bible,

And he gathered them together,…. Or rather “they gathered them together”, as the Syriac version renders it; for though the verb is singular, a noun plural goes before it, as in Revelation16:14 and the same spirits that are there said to go forth, to gather the kings together, these will gather them together; will persuade the Papal, Pagan, and Mahometan powers, the remains of them in the several parts of the world, to join together, and make one effort for the reviving of their declining, and almost ruined interests: for which purpose they will be brought together,

What will happen next (hint: Armageddon) is sure to be a great surprise to the world at large.

 

To Bring Over North America To The Bosom Of Our Holy Church

Catholicism in North America

Among the instructions which I received from my bishop in Ireland, when he sent me out to this country as a Catholic priest, was one to which I beg to call your attention. The same is given to every priest in the United States. “Let it be your first duty to extirpate heretics, but be cautious as to the manner of doing it. Do nothing without consulting the bishop of the diocese, in which you may be located; and if there be no bishop there, advise with the metropolitan bishop. He has his instructions from Rome, and he understands the character of the people. Be sure not to permit the members of our holy church, who may be under your charge, to read the Bible. It is the source of all heresies. Whenever you see an opportunity of building a church, make it known to your bishop. Let the land be purchased for the Pope, and his successors in office. Never yield or give up the divine right, which the head of the church has, by virtue of the Keys, to the government of North America, as well as every other country. The confessional will enable you to know the people by degrees; with the aid of that holy tribunal, and our bishops, who are guided by the spirit of God, we may expect, at no distant day, to bring over North America to the bosom of our holy church.”

Surrounded by Jesuits

Michael Savage on the current U.S. president:

Religion.  What has the President actually done for religious freedom?  That tepid bill he passed a few weeks ago didn’t really please the truly conservative Christians out there.  They-They were not fooled by it.  He is basically advised, I’m sorry to tell you, by Jesuits.  I don’t, look, I don’t want to go into it because there’s more to this than meets the eye.  Uh, not a good thing.  Almost all of the people advising Trump on his transition are Jesuits.  You say, well what’s wrong with Jesuits?  I don’t-just say Jerry Brown.  Just say Jerry Brown.  They’re all very left-wing.  All of them.  All of them.  All of them.  All of them.  All of them.

The Land of the Jesuits’ Operations

History of the Society of Jesus in North America - colonial and federal (1907) (14586971919)

“America,” as a talented writer (Giustiniani) expresses it, “is the promised land, the land of the Jesuits’ operations. To obtain the ascendency, they have no need of a mercenary Swiss guard, or the assistance of the holy alliance, but a majority of votes, which can easily be obtained by an importation of Roman Catholics from Ireland, Bavaria, and Austria. Rome, viewed at a distance, is a colossus; near at hand, its grandeur diminishes, its charm is lost. But the Jesuits are every where the same—cunning, immoral, and sneaking intriguers, until they have obtained the ascendency. Rome feels her weakness at home; she knows herself to be a mere political institution, dressed in the garment of Christianity. She takes good care to uphold that holy militia, the Jesuits, in order to appear what she is not. It is a strife for existence. I am not a politician,” says this writer, “but knowing the active spirit of Jesuitism, and the indifference of the generality of Protestants, I have no doubt whatever, that in ten years the Jesuits will have a mighty influence over the ballot-box, and in twenty they will direct it according to their own pleasure. Now they fawn, in ten years they will menace, and in twenty command.”

American Alone Can Sound The Death Knell

New York Union Flag (1775)

Former priest William Hogan on the state of the RCC in the 1800s:

The continuance of Popery depends upon this country alone. Extinguish it in the United States, and it dies every where. The old world is sick of it; it has cursed it long enough. It is for us alone to say whether it shall live or die. Americans alone can sound the death knell of Popery; and, if this Christian League will unite their energies and bring them all to bear, in excluding Popery from the United States, they will be conferring a blessing, not only upon this, but upon the old world.
