TODAY, GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS ARE OPENLY ATTACKED
“It is not only in the Right to Life, but also in other very important rights, that the governments (federal and local) of Canada and the U.S.A. Are gradually taking away – or are prepared to take away – our God-given rights. In Canada, for example: in the ‘Charter of Rights’, the federal and provincial governments have written into the Charter the power for them to override any person’s or any group’s right to the free exercise of his/their conscience or religion. Some might say that we need not worry because no government will ever invoke this power to override individual consciences. If they never will do this, why did the governments write it into the Charter?
If governments will not accept in practice and in law the idea that governments themselves are responsible to God and have authority to rule only from God (and only so far as God authorises them), then they, in turn, will assume in practice that there is no other greater authority than government. If this trend is not reversed, they will, over time, demand absolute and total obedience, even when their will is against the Law of God and against the God-given and inalienable rights of its citizens.
THE STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE FORCES OF GOOD AND THE FORCES OF EVIL IN OUR TIMES
We see, then, that modern governments in North America and elsewhere have increasingly rejected the concept of having their powers restricted by any moral restraints, which means that they operate in a moral vacuum and become increasingly totalitarian.
At this time, then, we must especially remember the warning given by the great statesman, William Penn: ‘If men are not governed by the Laws of God, they will be ruled by tyrants.’
And here are some statements of the Popes concerning our times: ‘There is room to fear that we are experiencing the foretaste and beginnings of the evils which are to come at the end of time, and that the Son of Perdition, of whom the Apostle speaks, has already arrived upon the earth.’ (Frm Pope Saint Pius X’s Encyclical ‘Suprema Apostolatus, 1903 – in reference to the anti-Christian movement of Freemasonry attacking the Church from outside and the Movement of Modernism subverting the Church from within.) ‘The smoke of satan is seeping into the Church. The tail of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic World.’ (Pope Paul VI)
DELIBERATE PLANS OF THE FORCES OF EVIL
Let us not be deceived into thinking that these corrupting influences have come to our country and into the world and the Church without a deliberate plan of the enemies of God and the enemies of our country. Led by satan, these men have a deliberate plan to corrupt us, to deceive us, and to enslave us. Here is a quotation from one of the secret societies which plotted the overthrow of the Church and legitimate civil government. The Masonic society said that a dagger is not enough to bring down the Papacy, for another Pope would be elected, and that in order to bring down the Papacy, they said, ‘Let us not make Christians sin, rather let us corrupt Christian hearts.’ To quote them directly, they said:
‘Let us spread vice broadcast among the multitude. Let them breathe it through their five senses, let them drink it in and become saturated with it… Make men’s hearts corrupt and vicious and you will have no more Catholics. Draw away priests from their work, from the altar and from the practice of virtue… The best poniard with which to wound the Church mortally is corruption.’ (Quoted by Father Denis Fahey, C.C.Sp., in his book, ‘The Kingship of Christ and Organised Naturalism – pp. 18-19.)
Our Lady of Fatima warned that Militant Atheists would ‘spread their errors throughout the world’ – if we did not heed Her warning. She also said that ‘certain fashions would be introduced which would offend Her Son very much.’ Our Lady indicated that our enemies had a deliberate plan to corrupt our Faith and our morals.
WHAT IS A MILITANT ATHEIST?
Militant Atheists are, by definition, people who not only do not believe in God, but who work and fight and use whatever means they can (they are not restrained by any considerations of right and wrong) to impose on the people their atheism. There is documented evidence of co-operation between the various branches of Militant Atheism to bring about their tyrannic rule over the whole world. 
Since the Militant Atheists cannot operate openly because the people would wake up to the danger, many Militant Atheists in the Western World do not openly profess their atheism or their aims to deceive, to subvert, and to subject society under the oppressive yoke of Militant Atheism. The Militant Atheist is an extremely dangerous enemy. He is particularly dangerous to our Eternal Salvation because he will use force, if possible, and will use trickery as well, to try to impose his atheism on each of us. To accept, for whatever reason, his doctrine, is to deprive ourselves of Eternal Salvation, for it is necessary ‘for a man to believe that God exists and rewards those who seek Him’ in order to be saved. (Hebrews 11:6)
MILITANT ATHEISTS’ TRICKERY
Let us not be deceived by the trickery of the Militant Atheists. PRAY THE ROSARY DAILY in order to avoid their deceptions and lies. Let us also recall that many Popes over the past 250 years have condemned the sect of the Freemasons and its practices and its doctrines. Pope John Paul II, through the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has … affirmed the excommunication passed on any Catholic who joins the Freemasons. (See decree of February 17, 1981.)(See Nov. 26, 1983, Declaration by Cardinal Ratzinger and the Holy Office.)
Besides the open Militant Atheism of the Communists who are spreading the lies of the devil by military might and by the subversion of our society, other diabolical errors and movements are afoot in our country and in the Western World such as Secular Humanism and also the planned decline of moral standards among the people, as evidenced by the widespread use of contraceptives and sterilisations…
These errors against Faith and morals are spread amongst our people by the devil and his henchmen on earth, and their spread forebodes badly for our country. Militant Atheists know that before they can conquer and enslave a country, they must first bring about the moral downfall of the people and enslave them to sin. Then they know that the people will not have the spiritual strength necessary to resist them and their plots, and their open military might, whereby they shall enslave the country – in a very evil, cruel and extremely painful slavery.
The Prophet Balaam in the Old Testament was asked how to defeat those who were the People of God. Balaam replied to the enemies that they could not win because God is protecting His people. But Balaam went on to say to God’s enemies that if they could get the People of God to sin enough, then God would not protect His people and then the enemies of God could win. So the enemies of God, then and now, follow the same battle plan: first get the People of God to sin enough – then the enemies of God will be able to win in war because God will have withdrawn His protection. Thus the Militant Atheists seek above all to corrupt Catholics – the People of God of the New and Eternal Testament – and they are succeeding to a great extent.

Miceli, S.J., Ph.D., an American priest who has taught at Pontifical Universities in Rome. The book is already in its 5th edition, and has an imprimatur from the Archdiocese of New York. In this book, Father Miceli gived the historical evidence and the theological background on the forces of evil, including recent examples of the inroads of the devil and his followers into North American society, international politics, and even into the Church Herself.”
PRAYING THE ROSARY AS OFTEN AS WE CAN
“Each time Our Lady appeared to the three children at Fatima, She asked us to pray the Rosary. Our Lady also asked us to wear the Scapular. In the final vision, on October 13, 1917, Our Lady silently held out the Scapular. Lucy has said the Blessed Mother wants everyone to wear it. ‘The Scapular and the Rosary are inseparable.’ Our Lady also said, ‘If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.’”
