I think is better to clarify something, in the world there different genres of Churches, some of them are visible national ones, like the Anglican, or
the Armenian one, or the Mormonism, and some others are international, since they represent federation of national churches, that is the case for
instance of the Orthodox Churches, Coptic churches and the Catholic ones.
By the way Catholic means in Greek Universal
, for the ones of you that does not know that. So the Catholic church does not have any national
identity, is an international non goverment organization around the Christian faith.
The people that you mention were assasesinated in Mexico were not foreigners, were in their ample majority also Mexican, whose only fault was to
don't be supporters of the Masonic Regime of the PRI, a modern type of Totalitarism that became the last dinosaur in the west world to fall, only in
2000 almost ten years after the Communism and with 71 yeas in the power.
The modern Mexico is a democracy but is one that must fight a lot to conquer their rights, that suffer a lot of prosecution by a regime that was hated
by the people of the country but remained there thanks to a very effective represive machinery.
Plutarco Elias Calles was a Dictator that ruled the country for six years, founded the PRI, and continue ruling behind a series of puppet Presidents
until finally another very fierce of his excolaborators decided to fire him and send him to an exile in California, that was Lazaro Cardenas, General
of the Revolution.
As part of the rethoric of PRI they always tried to show the oppositionists like not trully Mexican, in the same way that Juarez did a century
before when he took the power without being elected to be President and started a civil war against the Catholic church among other sectors of the
society, the Reforma war.
That civil war was the one that crashed the finances of Mexico & created the iliquidity of the State that finally caused the French intervention and
the disparate action taken by the Conservator party to elect through a referendum Maximiliam of Habsburgo Emperor of the country ,to ends that period
of lack of sovereignity.
The propaganda of Juarez and the PRI always has shown that internal conflict as the confrontation of a trully pure Mexican Leader against an
European invasor, the situation was many times more complex, since in the side that opposed to Juarez fought many native Mexicans as for instance the
General Tomás Mejía, of pure indigineous stock, and Gral Miguel Miramon, the youngest President that Mexico had ever had, they both died with
Maximiliam Assesinated in Queretaro.
Juarez was during the PRI regime an figure that had literaly cult, the same cult of the personality that Stalin, Lenin, Mussolini, Peron or Mao Tse
tung had in other epochs and countries. His portrait was Mandatory present in each public school with the supposed reason that he was the Heroe
against the French intervention, Honor that was actually of Porfirio Diaz.
It is so ironic that this Autodeclared President, Mason of the 33 degree, published as great Patriot, was also the one that signed with United
States the so called protocols of Bucarelli, an agreement in which he gave free transit of all American companies even to the militars throught the
States of Chihuahua and Sonora to the Cortez sea, and through the Tehuantepec Isthmus, and if that was nothing also a comprimise that Mexico didnt
develop its own industries for a Century & consume all the American products!!!!
The Bucarelli protocol was declared by Gral Porfirio Diaz, a genuine National heroe in the war against France, as one of the most antipatriotic of the
History, he didn't obey its terms as a President, that was one of the causes of the Mexican Revolution, that received alot of support of the American
freemasonic circles, & finished with another military American Invasion to Mexico.
Let me finish this reply saying that Maximiliam was not the only Emperor of Mexico in modern times, also was Agustin de Iturbide the heroe that gave
the independence of the country, although he was born Spanish, and the terrible Gral Antonio Lopez de Santana, the same that sold half of the country
to the United States, he was known with the titles of nonresignable Emperor and Serenity Highness and ruled the country 11 different terms.
Mexico is a country that suffered a lot under totalitarian regimes and Dictatorships in its History, that is a sad reality, but many were promoted or
supported from abroad.
However, Maximiliam, the only elected Monarch of the modern History, before JuanCarlos I of Spain, is better remembered in Mexico to have decreted
three basic democratic important laws
- Fist time that there was Public Mandatory education free of charge, supported by the State.
- The First law of the Nation to protect the Indians and their lands,
- The liberty to the servants of the Ranchs, that were slaves for centuries..
So it is curious but sometimes the History is precisely the thing that the writer wants to show, not necessarly the truth, that is the case of many
pages of the Latin-American reality. It is also interesting to verify that many of the most important democracies of the modern world are also
constitutional Monarchies like Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Nederlands, Belgique, etc.
There were actual Catholics so patriotics in Mexico as the priests Miguel Hidalgo, Jose Maria Morelos y Pavon, and Servando Teresa de Mier, martyrs of
the Independence war, since they started the rebelion against Spain. Hidalgo used as the first flag of the country the so famous icon of Mary of
Guadalupe Virgin, the most important simbol of the Mexican National Identity.
