American Founding Fathers on Catholicism
“I have long been decided in opinion that a free government and the Roman Catholick religion can never exist together in any nation or Country.” “Liberty and Popery cannot live together.” – John Adams 2nd President of the United States
“I do not like the late Resurrection of the Jesuits. They have a General, now in Russia, in correspondence with jesuits in the U.S. who are more numerous than everybody knows. Shall We not have Swarms of them here? In as many shapes and disguises as ever…. In the shape of printers, Editors, Writers, School masters, etc. If ever any Congregation of men could merit, eternal Perdition on Earth and in Hell… it is this Company of Loyola.” – Thomas Jefferson 3rd President of the United States
“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country — the United States — are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars in Europe.”- General Marquis De Layfayette
“All worship of images and saints, is an abomination to God; it is idolatry, which is strictly forbidden in the Bible.” – American lexicographer and statesman Noah Webster
“I hope that the last day is at the door. Things could not become worse than the Roman see makes it. It suppresses the commandments of God, it exalts its own commandments above God’s. If this is not Antichrist, then some one else must tell what it is.” – Luther’s Reformatory Works,” p. 280. Copenhagen: 1883.
Wycliffe the great reformer wrote: “Christ is truth, the Pope is the principle of falsehood. Christ lived in poverty, the Pope labours for worldly magnificence. Christ refused temporal dominion, the Pope seeks it.”
