Was there a ROMAN CATHOLIC Connection to the Lincoln Assassination 14 April 1865?

Consider these FACTS:

John Wilkes Booth and "all but one" of the other five male conspirators in the Assassination of Lincoln were devout Roman Catholics, especially Mary Surrat who fervently evangelized for the Catholic Church for decades.

In addition there were others arrested at the Surrat house: Mrs. Surratt, a Roman Catholic; her daughter, Anna, a Roman Catholic; Mrs. Fitzpatrick, a Roman Catholic, and Miss Hollahan, a Roman Catholic.

Before the officers had left this house a light knock was heard at the door and a young man appeared in disguise, as he was dressed as a common laborer and carried a pick upon his shoulder; his hands were white and soft and he was also arrested, and his name was Powell, another Roman Catholic.

After their convictions, Herald, Powell and Mrs. Surratt were hung, and Dr. Mudd and O'Laughlin were committed to lifelong imprisonment, and ALL of these persons mentioned were Roman Catholics.

John Wilkes Booth regularly went (as an actor he could do this, by actually crossing of enemy lines) from Baltimore to Montreal Candad on Spy Missions for the South in 1862-1865 to meet with "Jesuit Priests" who were collecting intelligence there for the Confederacy via Vatican Channels.

Mary Surrat’s own son, John Surrat, escaped the noose that hung his mother, by fleeing to Montreal where Jesuit priests with direct ties to Pope Pius in the Vatican placed him in protective custody--he was later discovered sequestered in the Pope’s own Swiss Guard at the Vatican.
and returned for trial in 1867.

President Lincoln himself in his Drawer of Letters marked "Assassination" which he collected since 1862 had notes which warned (from at least two individuals) before the assassination to be on guard for his life SPECIFICALLY against Roman 'Catholic' assassins.

The fact, attested by sworn affidavits, that Catholic Priests at a monastery near St. Joseph MN, were openly talking about the killings of both Lincoln and Seward some FIVE hours before the attacks occurred.

in 1864 Pope Pius IX wrote Jefferson Davis a letter that was made public, addressing him as the President of the Confederacy — in effect becoming the only foreign power to recognize the South.

An historian canemd Chinquy who met Lincoln in 1864-1865 published a book in 1906, claiming among other things that "the President, Abraham Lincoln, was assassinated by people who were in league with certain Catholic priests and in particular the Jesuits of the Vatican."

In 1897 Thomas M. Harris, a member of the 1865 military commission, interviewed scores of individuals as part of his work on the assassination and concluded : VATICAN COVERUP and even wrote a book entitled Rome's Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

In his book, The Suppressed Truth about the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Burke McCarty begins by tracing the roots of Papal antipathy toward popular (as opposed to monarchical, or 'divine right') government as far back as the Congress of Vienna (Austria, 1814-15) and the Congress of Verona (Italy, 1822).

Comments anyone?

Highly possible since the catholics share many of the same charactoristics of the Muslim and Islam religions. they are a military based religion by orgin, hence the word Roman Catholic. dont be forgeting we have them to thank for the inquisitions. they like the islams and muslims forced thier religion upon the world through military force. since they are the biproduct of an extinct empire, it would stand to reason that they share the same imperial ideals. It would be an opritune time for them to assasinate Lincon, beings the US was in such turmoil. maybe another chance for them to establish a state religion and plunder the wealth of the nation

Funny how people will indulge in speculation, and how they will always aviod the truth. Take your pills children so we can have guilt free smiles as we march past the Emperor
