It was illegal to evangelize, to provide a religious education, to wear clerical vestments, and priests were stripped of the right to vote.

It shows the fruits of Liberalism and Freemasonry: Persecution of and desire to eradicate the Holy Catholic religion by whatever means that can be used.

    Go see the movie For Greater Glory. I'll be seeing it again this weekend. It's rare that I'd go to a movie twice...Excellent movie, though.
