Abraham Lincoln Quote on the Civil War


“This war would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons. Though there were great differences of opinion between the South and the North on the question of slavery, neither Jeff Davis nor anyone of the leading men of the Confederacy would have dared to attack the North, had they not relied on the promises of the Jesuits, that, under the mask of Democracy, the money and the arms of the Roman Catholic, even the arms of France were at their disposal, if they would attack us. 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 the blood shed in this war. I conceal what I know, on that subject, from the knowledge of the nation; for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and it would at once, take a tenfold more savage and 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 unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits, if they could hear what Professor Morse has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome to destroy this Republic, and if they could learn how the priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores, under the pretext of preaching their religion, instructing the people in their schools, taking care of the sick in the hospitals, are nothing else but the emissaries of the Pope, of Napoleon, and the other despots of Europe, to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, in Mexico, in Spain, and wherever there are any people who want to be free.”

Then President Lincoln went on to say:

“Is it not an absurdity to give to a man a thing which he is sworn to hate, curse, and destroy? And does not the Church of Rome hate, curse and destroy liberty of conscience whenever she can do it safely? I am for liberty of conscience in its noblest, broadest, highest sense. But I cannot give liberty of conscience to the Pope and to his followers, the Papists, so long as they tell me, through all their councils, theologians, and canon laws, that their conscience orders them to burn my wife, strangle my children, and cut my throat when they find their opportunity! This does not seem to be understood by the people today. But sooner or later, the light of common sense will make it clear to everyone that no liberty of conscience can be granted to men who are sworn to obey a Pope, who pretends to have the right to put to death those who differ from him in religion.”

These words are chilling considering they were spoken so long ago. People today have become complacent and are like ostriches hiding their heads in the sand when it comes to the political power which lies within the catholic church. People would rather buy a lie which says that the religions are coming together through compromise than to believe the truth, which is the catholic church will never give up or give in. She is worth billions of dollars and will use every penny of it to accomplish her cause – to rule the world. She has been this from the beginning and she will continue until Christ Himself destroys her. (Rev 18:20) Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. (Rev 18:21) And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

    That’s awesome. If only people the knew the greatest deception in history is not the “Da Vinci Code”, it’s the Roman Catholic Church

  2. Erin says:

    I never knew Abraham Lincoln was such a bigot. Time to check him right off my list of people to admire.

  3. Kate says:

    Abraham Lincoln spoke truth. How can you deny history? He was not a bigot but a man who knew who the enemy was and still is.

  4. Why am I not surprised by Erin’s classic Papist response?
    “If you object to my Pope’s ‘right’ to burn heretics, rob and ruin nations, and amass the greatest stores of gold of any nation-state on Earth, all in the name of representing God, saving souls, and helping the poor, then you are a bigot.”
    None of us hate Catholics. The finest Christian man I ever knew in my life was a Catholic. But, all other Christians object to the cult of Papism idolizing a man that portends to be the “sole representative of God on Earth”, and the corrupt organization built upon that lie.
    Neither did Lincoln hate Catholics, if he had, he would have released the information he had, during the war, then he would have sat back and watched them be wiped out. But, he did not, and I admire him, even more, for that.
    One day, every Catholic must decide, as in Revelations 14:1-5, if they will continue to follow a man, or will they forsake the man, and that corrupt human organization, and follow only the Christ.
    I pray that God will give them all the faith to be Christians, first, Americans, second, and Catholics, behind all else.
    I pray that for all of us, whatever our race, nationality, or creed.
