Today on Inquisition Update: (for broadcasts Tues., 1-8-13 and Wed., 1-9-13)
To summarize the last two broadcasts of Inquisition Update, I will simply quote Thompson.
“We all concede that whatever is derived from God must be just and right: he is infallible. Whosoever shall be persuaded to believe that these doctrines [that the power of the pope over both spirituals and temporals is derived directly from God, and that its exercise over the world is the act of God himself] are according to his teachings, to him they necessarily become just and right. No defender of papal infallibility is permitted to deny them—excommunication and anathema have already been decreed against him if he does. With all such, then their duty to the Church is higher and more obligatory than any duty they can owe to human governments, either in the United States or elsewhere. And if the pope shall tell them, in an official bull or brief, that there are principles of government prevailing here which are condemned by the law of God; that this country belongs of right to “the domain of the Catholic Church” by virtue of the discovery by Columbus; that this right, being divine, can never be destroyed or impaired by revolution; that the papal jurisdiction has been wrongfully and criminally displaced by lawless usurpation; that the Government existing here is de facto, and not de jure, because it is merely human, and not such as God’s law requires; that it does not recognize the temporal power as subordinate to the spiritual, which God commands, but the spiritual, in its exterior organization, as subordinate to the temporal, which God forbids; that it has disunited the State and the Church, and tolerates different forms of religion, which is heresy; that all such institutions as ours, being Protestant, are infidel, because they deny to the papacy the right to measure our laws by the papal standard—if he shall tell them any or all of these things, and enjoin upon them that, in view of all this wrong, injustice, and crime, it is a duty which the papacy owes to God to re-assert its jurisdiction here, to restore again the true apostolic Christianity (Catholicism), to banish all this heresy, and to build up a lawful government constructed according to the divine plan; with all these and other kindred propositions before their minds, pressed and urged upon them by cunning and adroit priests, trained for the purpose in Jesuit schools, what will those who believe that the pope is infallible do and say? Will they obey or disobey the pope? That is the question which no ingenuity can evade. He who accepts papal infallibility, and with it the ultramontane interpretation of the power of the pope over the world, and thinks that by offending the pope he offends God, will obey passively, unresistingly, uninquiringly. Such a man, whether priest or layman, high or low, is necessarily inimical to the Government and political institutions of the United States. With him his oath of allegiance would be worth no more than the paper upon which it is written. It would not stand a single moment before the all-absorbing absolutism of the pope, whose commands are equivalent with him to those of God. Or if, for a moment, he should stop to consider the extent of its possible obligation, the pope would be ready to assure him that, as it required him to do what the welfare of his Church and the will of God forbade him to do, it was null and void from the beginning. Or if still there should be some little unrest in his conscience, some slight misgivings as to the true line of his duty, the power of dispensation would be ready at hand to release him from the obligation of his sworn allegiance, and snap the cords that bind him to the Government, as the same kind of cords have been snapped by other popes and in other countries. To this end do the papal teachings inevitably lead; it is their natural and logical result.”
From this quote we can clearly discern Thompson’s meaning: that within this nation lies a vast fifth column for the eventual overthrow of our Protestant government and our Protestant faith, the Papal Church of Rome!
Thompson goes on to describe the teachings of Peter Dens and Saint Thomas Aquinas and the Jesuits called, “mental restrictions” by which Catholics may lie without actually lying, according to the Roman Catholic Church. These teachings are so twisted and perverted and complicated and absurd that they are difficult even to articulate. The best way to describe them is to give an example: According to the Roman Catholic Church, a Papist swearing the oath of office to the Presidency of the United States may say aloud, “I swear to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States….” and then in a whisper, or within himself say, “when hell freezes over”…and then finish aloud, “so help me God!” To those who hear the words that he has spoken, it appears that he has sworn a lawful oath; when in reality, he has lied. This kind of “mental restriction” is expected and approved as valid by the Papal Church of Rome. And it also explains why our laws and our Constitution are being replaced by Roman Catholic Canon Law by those who have sworn the oaths of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency of the United States.
When the teachings of the Roman Church are clearly understood, it becomes apparent that Catholics are bound to lie to protect the church and to extend its power and influence and control, and eventually, its conquest of the world. So lightly does the Roman Catholic Church hold truth-telling, it is not an exaggeration to say that if a Catholic’s lips are moving, he’s lying! And in the case of Catholics in our government, they may even lie about their faith and profess any other religion in order to protect the Papal Church from suspicion and blame. This alone should explain volumes to my listeners and readers.
