ROHAN GUILT AND HYPOCRISY fiBOUF WAR

By Gilbert O Nations"iu the" Men
Roman Catholic press, priests
and politicians are now busy
protesting- their loyality to the
g-overment in the present inter
national crisis. To paraphrase
a famous remark, there seem
good reasons to suspect that they
protest too much. It would be
very interesting- if the public
could know how many of those
who have been arrested for com
plicity in the disastrous explo
sions in this country recently are
Roman Catholics. Virtually all
of those sc arrested have foreign
names, and the probabilities are
that many of them are more loy
al subjects of the pope than of
The papal gang in this country
will use the present crisis to the
utmost in their frantic efforts to
hamper and destnyy the present
arousal of the people against
their political intrigues. To
this end, they will declare that
labor and capital have for the
time being buried the hatchet,
that Repulicans and Democrats
have joined hands, that social dis
tinctions have been obliterated,
and that now the only discord
ant element among the American
people is the element which has
so vigorously opposed the perni
cious regressions-of Rome in
our public affairs. It is believed
that very few patriots will be de
ceived by this characteristic
The determination ot the pope,
the kaiser and the Austrian em

ize the little and helpless Balk
an States forced, this mon
strous war upon the human race.
More than fifty per cent of the
total population of the German
powers and their allies are Ro
man Catholic, and a large part
of the remainder are Mohammed
ans and infidels. When encour
aging that aggregation to war
against the Protestant nations
of the world, the papacy un
derestimated the growing power
of Democracies to defend Hu
Having embroiled the world
in this awful cataclysm, the pa
pal machine is actively charging
Protestants with responsibility
f or the stupendous conflict. The
Roman, Catholic Volks Zeitung
of Berlin has recently declared
that Freemasonry has brought
on the war. In this connection
the Berlin mouthpiece of the pa
pacy alleges that President Wil
son, Mr. Bryan and Colonel
Roosevelt are Masons and pri
marily responsible for the war
and "particularly for American
participation in it. The papal
hierarchy in this countrv is now
lying awake at night to devise
plans whereby the knights of
Columbusvnay obtain commisions
and official 'po A-er in the Ameri
'catiarmy. The daily press has mentioned
inconspicuously of late that Car
dinal Farely of New York city
refused to sign the declaration
of loyality which is. being circu
lated and presented in New York
by the mayor's committee on na
tional defense. The flome-serv-mg"
press makes the insincere ex
cuse that the cardinal '.refused to
sign the document for fear of infla
ming the people and exciting the
war spirit. But Che true, reason
ior his refusal to sign is thatthe
Church Council of Clermont in
the--year 1095. :by direction of,
Pope Utban II enacted a law for
bidding1 anv ecclesiastic to take';
an oath of fealty to anvlaysove
reign or any . civil oy;ernxent':'
Every cardinal, bishop and priest
of Rome throughout '.'the' 'worlfl
is bound absolutely by that la.w
Cardinal Farley's action arirt
the palpable absurdity of the ex ...
cuse advanced by the pro-papal
press created a -'distinctly un,
favorable impress!on. in the pub -"-lie
mind. So we find that ' on
Saturday night. April 14th the
cardinal gave OAit a lettefV-to' be
read; at the mass on the following
mbrninr enioininsr .'.loalty to
the flag. In the meaniimi;1 pop
ular Romau Catholic journals",
especially the Celtic Catholic pa
pers, are faithfully reflecting the
bitter sneer of the popes own or
gan, the Osseryatore Romano,
which we published last week.
Thus we ' find- the well known
Roman Catholic paper, the Galic
American, the journal of the
Clan-na-Gael of. New York say
The war which the: highly
financed British propaganda has
been fomenting for twenty years
and for which it has worked oyer
time since 1914, is at last upon
us it is the greatest victory
that England has ever won ' arid
the most humilating. fact in
American history. The Ameri
can people do not want war, but
congress has been' browbeaten
futo submission by an autocratic
president, backed bv a press
subsidized. by a foreign gover
raent and controlled by the mon
ey power which is making enor
muus fortunes out of - the human
blood. The statements made in
the corrupt press and repeated
and reiterated every day that the
American people favor war are
lies made out or whole cloth.
Every one who mixes arfiong the
people know that. . The ' mani
festations in favor of war have
been organized and paid for by
the tnoney power and did not
represent the people The meet
ings in opposition to war were
teu times more numerous and rep
resented a majority of the Ameri'
can people. But President Wil
son wanted war to save England
and he has got it. It is Woodrow

ajre seeking to deceive the people
bjy stating in their official news--pjapers
that many Roman Cath
olics, including priests are now
fighting on the battlefields and
in the. trenches of Protestant
nations in ; Europe. Protestant
nations are. the only ones. rin
which priests do serve in the
army. The pope makes treaties
with Roman Catholic nations ex-
pressly exempting the priests
from military, service; but the
protestant nations are fighting for,
their existence and for .humanity
have- ' conscripted air available
men for service at the front.
In this universal consciptiohs,
a few priests have probably been
caught and forced into the tren ches.
Forced to choose between
the trenches and a court martial
for treason, the average, -priestsi
