“The war [Civil War of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits.” ~ Abraham Lincoln “War! “The opening shot of the confederate rebellion rang out on April 12th, 1861… one month after Lincoln was proclaimed President of the United States, the 4th of March 1861,” wrote Charles Chiniquy. Let us discover what President Abraham Lincoln said, in his view, was the real cause of the American Civil War. 1860, 20 December, the State of South Carolina announced it would secede from the Union and become a separate republic. The Federal Government responded by calling on other States to send troops to suppress South Carolina. Six Southern states refused to comply and joined with South Carolina to form the Confederate States of America, with Jefferson Davis as their President.
According to Father Chiniquy Lincoln confided to him:
“I feel more and more every day that it is not against the Americans of the South, alone, I am fighting. It is more against the Pope of Rome, his Jesuits and their slaves. There are only vary few of the Southern leaders who are not more or less under the influence of the Jesuits, through their wives, family relations, and their friends. Several members of the family of Jeff Davis are under the influence of the Jesuits. Even the Protestant ministers are under the influence of the Jesuits, without suspecting it… Rome is doing here what she has done in Mexico, and all the South American Republics; she is paralysing, by civil war… She divides our nation in order to weaken, subdue and rule it.”
“…I pity the priests, the bishops, and monks of Rome in the United States when the people realize that they are in great part responsible for the tears and blood shed in this war. I conceal what I know, for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and at once, take a tenfold more savage bloody character. It would become merciless as all religious wars are. It would become a war of extermination on both sides. The protestants of both the North and the South would surely exterminate the priests and the Jesuits if they could hear what Profess or Morse has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome to destroy this republic…” ~ Abraham Lincoln
“…The true motive power [of the civil war] is secreted behind the thick walls of the Vatican, the colleges and schools of the Jesuits…They have continued in a silent, but most efficacious way, to spread their hatred against our institutions, our laws… and our liberties in such a way that this terrible conflict became unavoidable between the North and South… it is Popery that we owe this terrible civil war… I would have laughed at the man who would have told me that before I became President. But Professor Morse has opened my eyes on that subject… Our people are yet ready to learn and believe those things, and perhaps it is not the proper time to initiate them into the dark mysteries of hell… Sooner or later the nation will know…And then those who have caused those desolations and disasters will be called to give an account.” ~Abraham Lincoln
[Jesuit priest ministers to confederate soldiers]
Amazing stuff, these quotes-truly thunderous! Rome, according to Lincoln, was the real instigator behind the Civil War. This lends weight to Professor Sarpi’s charge that, “The Roman Catholic Church is a gigantic ecclesiastical conspiracy.” I cite here another singularly stunning charge against the Jesuits by Charles Chiniquy, whom I remind you, was a priest and faithful Catholic for over 50 years:
Yes! Without Romanism, the last awful civil war would have been impossible. Jeff Davis would never have dared to attack the North, had he not had the assurance from the Pope, that the Jesuits, the bishops, the priests and the whole people of the Church of Rome, under the name and mask of Democracy, would help him… a Roman Catholic (General Beauregard) … the man chosen to fire the first gun at Fort Sumter, against the flag of Liberty, on the 12th of April, 1861… the Pope of Rome was the … only crowned prince in the whole world, so depraved as to publicly… proclaim Jeff Davis as president of a legitimate government.
“If the American people could learn what I know of the fierce hatred of the priests or Rome against our institutions, our schools, our most sacred rights, and our so dearly bought liberties, they would drive them out as traitors.”
The Jesuit initiation as follows:
“You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other and to create revolutions and civil wars…”?
Most historians agree, that it was the decision by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney that was the pretext for the Southern Confederacy’s igniting of the Great American Civil War – and today with the hind-sight of history we must now regard that war as the second Catholic war on American soil.
In the Civil War of 1861 – 1865, it was Chief Justice Taney’s egregious, and calculating decision in the case of Dred Scott vs. Sanford (which said that “a Negro has no rights” that a white man is bound to respect) that caused President Lincoln to go on a “war-path” –so to speak. This anti-slavery rhetoric was just the excuse the Roman Catholic General, Pierre Beaurgard, needed to join with his ‘brother’ Jefferson Davis, and to the fire on the Union’s military at Fort Sumter. At that time Chief Justice Taney, the highest judge on the US Supreme Court, was not only a devout Roman Catholic, but according to Dr Walsh, in his book American Jesuits, Justice Taney was “under the influence of the Jesuits most of his life.”
It is of significance therefore, that today there are five Roman Catholic Justices on the benches of the US Supreme Court, at least two of whom, like Chief Justice Taney, have been under the influence of the Jesuits for almost all their lives, and who are almost certainly Jesuits themselves. These two Justices hold adjunct professorship at the oldest and most renowned Jesuit University in American-Georgetown University! And, as in this case of Taney, the current Chief Justice is a devout and uncompromising Roman Catholic. To return to war. We know, too, that Jeff Davis, the confederate ‘President’ and the leader of the Southern rebellion had attended a Catholic College – the monastery of St. Thomas College, Bardstown – and once sort to convert to Catholicism, eventually becoming a member of the Episcopal Church (a denomination which mirrors Rome’s).
Rome’s involvement in, or rather her instigation of the American Civil War, is the best-kept secret in American history. It is a sad fact that most Americans are utterly unaware of the role that the Jesuits of Rome played in the most costly war that “caused more than half a million of the most heroic sons of America to fall on the fields of carnage.” We hope that the reader will agree that no further evidence is needed of Rome’s agency in the Confederate rebellion.
“ I do not pretend to be a prophet. But though not a prophet, I see a very dark cloud on the horizon. And that dark cloud is coming from Rome… a cyclone such as the world has never seen will pass over this country, spreading ruin and desolation from north to south… Neither I nor you, but our children, will see those things.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
[“Pope Pius IX never actually signed any kind of alliance or 'statement of support' with the Confederate States of America, but to those who understand the nuance of papal protocol, what he did do was quite astonishing. He acknowledged President Jefferson Davis as the "Honorable President of the Confederate States of America."]
