Aside from ignoring other Christians and other religions and pretending that Catholics are hunted all over the world, you do have almost 50 years worth of American survivors of the Cold War here at freerepublic that would challenge you on some of that.

Mexico was almost 100% Catholic, that was just Mexicans fighting for power among themselves.

“Mexico was almost 100% Catholic, that was just Mexicans fighting for power among themselves.”

The people killing Mexican Catholics precisely because they were loyal to the Catholic Church were NOT Catholic. They were Masons and Marxists. It might help if you studied some history.

“Aside from ignoring other Christians and other religions”

I am not ignoring other Christians and other religions. The article was about Catholics protecting Jews before and during WWII. My point was simply that Catholics protected and helped Jews but that no one protected the Catholics that were being slaughtered at the same time in the former Soviet Union.

The Catholics slaughtered in Mexico were Catholics loyal to their faith. They were slaughtered by anti-Catholic Marxist and Masons who took over the Mexican government.

Catholics are being slaughtered today by Muslims in the Middle East and Africa. No one is helping to protect them?

Catholics were slaughtered in China, Cambodia and Vietnam. No one protected them.

Ignorance of history is dangerous. And apologists for marxism and freemasonry are idiots, willing fools who help the Anti-Christ in his evil pursuits.

It seems to me that ansell12’s posts are somewhat off-topic and also biased.

Sure, you could say that the revolution in Mexico was “Catholics fighting Catholics,” but in fact it was basically Communist ex-Catholics fighting and murdering Priests and other Catholics.

It was much the same as the Civil War in Spain, which was also Communists murdering Priests and other Catholics. Franco was villanized by the leftist media, but he simply chose to fight against the Communist murderers; and he managed to keep Hitler from occupying Spain, which was about as much as he was able to do in the circumstances. He also provided refuge to quite a few Jews who managed to make it out of France into Spain, although the leftist Jews certainly don’t give him any credit for that.

I think narses sometimes gets carried away on these threads, but I don’t entirely blame him.

As for whether the U.S. should have intervened in the Mexican civil war, that’s a different question. Probably not. But Mexico wouldn’t be such a mess even now if not for the class warfare that has gone on down there. The best analysis of what’s wrong with Latin America that I know of is Joseph Conrad’s “Nostromo,” which describes the constant shift of dictators in Latin America from left to right, from Communism to crony capitalism. Not much the U.S. can do about it, although it might help if our Democrat politicians didn’t get so loving with their Communist dictators.
