Romanism and Politics

     Now hear from our own Abraham Lincoln:

     “The history of the last thousand years tells us that wherever the Church of Rome is not a dagger to pierce the bosom of a free nation, she is a stone to her neck and a ball to her feet, to paralyze her and prevent her advancement in the ways of civilization, science, intelligence, happiness and liberty. Though not a prophet, I see a very dark cloud on our horizon. And that dark cloud is coming from Rome. It is filled with tears of blood. It will rise and increase till its flanks will be torn by a flash of lightning, followed by a fearful peal of thunder. Then a cyclone, such as the world has never seen, will pass over this country spreading ruin and desolation from North to South. After it is over, there will be long days of peace and prosperity; for popery, with its Jesuits and merciless Inquisition, will have been forever swept from our country.” Spoken to Chiniquy.

     It is no wonder Romanists killed him. They do not readily accept such reproofs. They not only killed Lincoln, but also Garfield and McKinley.
