The aims of the Papacy

"The experiment with economic freedom, Pius XI wrote, must end, and economic life must again be subjected to planning and government." - Pius XI, Quadragesimo Anno, 1931, p. 66.

"When the United States rules the world, the Catholic Church will rule the world." - Archbishop Quigley, 1903, The Chicago Tribune.

"Many non-Catholics fear us as a political organisation, and are afraid that the Catholic Church will dominate and rule; we are working quietly, seriously and I may say effectively, to that end." - The Catholic magazine The Missionary, June, 1909, p. 69.

"Our purpose is to make America dominantly Catholic." - "The Mission Movement in America," issued from the Catholic University, Washington, D.C., June, 1909.

"I want to hear some American stand up and shout: 'Give us justice. Give us decency. And to hell with the Constitution." - The Catholic News, July 25, 1963.

"On his tour of Poland in 1978, Pope John Paul II denounced excessive materialism and the separation of church and state." - Time, June 17, 1991.

The [Roman Catholic] Church has the right to require that the [Roman] Catholic religion shall be the religion of the State, to the exclusion of all others.…Cursed be those who assert liberty of conscience and of worship and such that maintain that the [Roman Catholic] Church may not employ force.”The Syllabus Errorum of Pope Pius IX (December 1864).

"There is no greater offence than heresy... and therefore it must be rooted out with fire and sword." - The Catholic Encyclopedia 1911, vol.14, p 767.

"The unrestrained freedom of thinking and of openly making known one's thoughts is not inherent in the rights of citizens and is by no means to be reckoned worthy of favor and support." - Pope Gregory XVI

"The Pope of Rome, as the Head of the Papal Government, claims absolute sovereignty and supremacy over all the governments of the earth." - Romanism as a World Power, Luther S. Kauffman, 1922, p.31.

"All present were in accord on two key points: (1) Pope John Paul II was endorsed by consensus as the planet's chief spiritual guide and overseer; and (2) Religious fundamentalists who refuse to go along with the global ecumenical movement are to be silenced. They must be denounced as 'dangerous extremists' full of hate." - True Bible believers denounced at Papal Conference. Power of Prophecy, March 2000, vol. 2000-03, p.3.

"The supreme duty of Catholics is to obey the Pope, and seek in every way, and especially by means of the ballot, to render the Catholic policy effective in this country." - Catholic World, Vol. XI, No. 64, 1870.

"The Roman Church is far-reaching in her plans and modes of operation. She is employing every device to extend her influence and increase her power in preparation for a fierce and determined conflict to regain control of the world, to re-establish persecution, and to undo all that Protestantism has done. Catholicism is gaining ground in our country upon every side." - BEcho, February 1, 1887
