From “Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism” by Frs. Francesco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI

[Cardinal] Spellman naively believed that False Religious Liberty was an American concept that should be adopted by the Church even though Pope Pius IX had condemned it 100 years earlier. Unfortunately, the False Religious Liberty promoted at Vatican II did nothing to alleviate those suffering under Communist regimes, but instead, caused all religions to be viewed as vehicles of salvation.

Spellman led American bishops to accept False Religious Liberty, Ecumenism and other Modernist beliefs. The “Declaration on Religious Liberty” altered the course of history and made “Catholic countries” a thing of the past. The loss of faith throughout the world can be linked to the provisions of this declaration.

The Council could have turned out completely differently if Spellman and the other Americans opposed Modernism. After U.S. bishops joined the Modernist camp, a domino effect occurred that encouraged prelates from around the world to blindly accept the doctrinal and liturgical changes set in motion by Vatican II.


Born in Baltimore, Lawrence Shehan attended St. Mary’s Seminary, completed his studies as the Pontifical North American College and Urbaniana University in Rome and was ordained on December 23, 1922. He received his doctorate in Theology in 1923. Shehan was consecrated Auxiliary Bishop of Baltimore-Washington by Amleto Cicognani on December 12, 1945, appointed Bishop of Bridgeport Connecticut in 1953, became Archbishop of Baltimore in 1961, and was made a Cardinal on February 22, 1965.

At Vatican II, he encouraged Council Fathers to ratify documents on Ecumenism and Religious Liberty. Cardinals Shehan and Ritter detested the Latin Mass. Shehan was a member of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity, and worked closely with Jewish and Orthodox leaders, established the Baltimore Ecumenical Institute in 1968, and joined [Cardinal] Suenans in delivering the closing speech of Vatican II…

Modernists claimed their teachings were merely a sign of progress and that the decrees, constitutions and declarations of Vatican II would perform a helpful service to humanity. Despite the flowery rhetoric, Modernists used every deceptive, strong arm, manipulative tactic at their disposal to achieve their ends. Although some of their proposals could have some value, their motives were evil: to destroy traditional Catholicism.
