Download PDF for this date

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

American Protestants and Jews were accused of causing the war between state and church in Mexico in an address delivered at the National Catholic Congress now being held in Manchester.

Father Ricardo, in addressing the National Catholic Congress, stated inter alia that Soviet Russia inspired the attack on the Catholic Church in Mexico. President Calles imported into Mexico 10,400 Russian and Jewish Communists to stimulate the persecutions, Father Ricardo declared. American protestantism was also responsible for inciting the persecutions, he said.
