The following is from the May, 1994 issue of Charisma Magazine:

'Stunned by the staggering growth of evangelical "sects" in Brazil, leaders of the Roman Catholic
Church have threatened to launch a "holy war" against Protestants unless they stop leading people from the Catholic fold. At the 31st National Conference of the Bishops of Brazil Bishop Sinesio Bohn [called] evangelicals a serious threat to the Vatican's influence in his country. "We will declare a holy war; don't doubt it,' he announced. 'The Catholic Church has a ponderous structure, but when we move, we'll smash anyone beneath us.' According to Bohn, an all-out holy war can't be avoided unless the 13 largest Protestant churches and denominations sign a treaty [that] would require Protestants to stop all evangelism efforts in Brazil. In exchange, he said, Catholics would agree to stop all persecution directed toward Protestants.' "
---------------------------------
Very interesting, eh? So this bishop admits that the persecution of Protestants is still official Catholic policy. The beast still has teeth, eh? But right now they are "baby teeth", expect them to grow! Their prime concern isn't to spread the good news of salvation through Jesus, but rather to maintain their ascendancy and influence in the region and to keep Brazilians in the Catholic Church. Just a couple of months prior, Evangelicals and Catholics pledged to support eachtother and work together. The ECT document was signed at that time. In the U.S., Protestants and Catholics are shaking hands. In Brazil, the Catholic Church shook their iron fist and laid down the law! See how well the RCC adapts and suites herself to differing climates? If the RCC were to gain that kind of clout here in the U.S., she would act in like manner as she did in Brazil. And "bye bye" to religious freedom as we know it. No question about it. Rome is only interested in one thing and one thing only. And that is the restoration of the power and primacy that they enjoyed prior to 201 years ago, when the French took the Pope captive in 1798 and struck a "deadly wound" to the Papacy's temporal power. If anyone has "ears to hear" and "eyes to see", then they will escape the snare that is surely coming upon us. God help us all to be ready.

Peace,
