Atheistic Communism


We continue with excerpts from “Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism”

Karl Marx (1818-1883) founded Atheistic Communism and wrote the Communist Manifesto in 1848. Communists have slaughtered millions throughout the world by means of violent revolutions and purges since the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. Leader of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924), who was responsible for the deaths of four million people, claimed there was nothing more detestable than religion.

Satan ingeniously united the secret, international network of Freemasonry with the mind-altering, re-education techniques of the Communists. Communists join Freemasons and Modernists in their attempt to destroy Catholicism by propaganda, control of the masses and by trying to banish God from society. The New York Times and the L’Osservatore Romano noted that Freemasons and Communists joined forces during the Calles’ Cristero War (1926-1929) in Mexico during which 4,000 Mexican priests and countless Catholic laity were martyred.

In 1927, Communists and Spanish Freemasons worked to overthrow the Spanish Monarchy and attack the Catholic Church. During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), thirteen bishops, 4172 diocesan priests and seminarians, 2364 monks and friars, 283 nuns and 10% of Catholic laity in Madrid were slaughtered by anti-Catholic forces and 25,000 churches and chapels were burned. Cardinal Enrique y Tarancon (Madrid) and other Spanish prelates embraced Communist and Modernist ideology, resisted the Franco regime and embraced Liberalism, hypocritically called “social Catholicism.”

Atheistic Communists subjugate nations and believe the State is supreme. They hate the Catholic Church, which defends personal freedom, and try to neutralize its influence by defaming and imprisoning its leaders. They use violence, torture and propaganda to control the masses and silence the opposition. Communists, who do not believe in God and deny a supernatural destiny for human beings, often treat people like animals or slaves and eliminate undesirables. They control the press, execute clergy and intelligentsia, and often turn churches into meeting halls, and ruthlessly kill or imprison any who
challenge their authority.

In 1949, the Holy See decreed that Communists, their supporters and those who voluntarily read their literature be denied the sacraments. “A stronger penalty, excommunication, is applied automatically to all Catholics ‘who profess, defend and spread the materialistic and anti-Christian doctrine of the Communists.’”
