The government took ownership of all Church property, and her activities were severely restricted. It was illegal to evangelize, to provide a religious education, to wear clerical vestments, and priests were stripped of the right to vote.

    Public wearing of clerical garb is still prohibited in Mexico. Also all the Churches remain in the technical hands of the State in Mexico (as is also true, alas, in France today, still). These measures were due to the Liberal, Freemasonic Anti-Catholic gov't. 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.
