about

Author's preface:
We are sending forth this book with an earnest desire to contribute something to the awakening of the American people to a proper appreciation of the dangers that now threaten our institutions and liberties.

It is no longer a secret that the Roman Catholic Church is seeking by every means possible to dominate and control this great republic. Her past history justifies the most earnest opposition to such domination on the part of all patriotic and liberty-loving citizens.

We disclaim any sort of unkind feeling or ill-will toward Catholics as individuals. We recognize the fact that among Roman Catholics there are many excellent people, kind neighbors and good citizens. But we believe that the best of them are dangerously under the influence and dictation of the Pope and his representatives.

The reader will observe that this book is largely a compilation. Remarkably few people of this rising generation of American citizens have read the story of St. Bartholomew. We have thought it wise to reproduce at length some account of that fearful tragedy, and so have quoted extensively from John Abbott’s excellent history of Henry IV of France. We have also quoted liberally from the history of the Huguenots, by Samuel Smiles, a very interesting work, published by Harper Brothers, Franklin Square, New York City.

We have been fortunate in securing an interesting chapter on the aggressiveness of Romanism in Washington City, which is an alarming and timely warning to American citizens and ought to arouse them to an earnest and aggressive effort to save the Capital of this republic from the domination of the Pope of Rome.

It has been our purpose in preparing this volume for the press, not to deal in personalities, but with principles. We believe that the time has come when the American people should acquaint themselves with the past history, present condition, and evident purposes of the Roman Catholic Church, and prepare themselves to stand up and stand together for the protection and preservation of the Bible, the Public School and our Civil and Religious Liberty.

About the author:
Morrison was in Barren County, Kentucky. His parents died when he was very young, and he was reared by his paternal grandfather. Morrison was converted at the age of 11 in a Methodist revival at the Boyd's Creek Meetinghouse near Glasgow, Kentucky. Soon after he felt a call to the ministry. He was licensed to preach at the age of 19 and began his work as circuit rider and station pastor.

In 1890 Morrison left the pastorate and moved into evangelism. He also began editing a religious publication called The Old Methodist, which later became the widely-read Pentecostal Herald. Morrison's reputation as a Methodist evangelist grew rapidly from his home state of Kentucky to most other states and many foreign countries. The camp meeting became one of his favorite evangelistic venues, and throughout the rest of his life Morrison gave much time and effective leadership to this religious movement. William Jennings Bryan regarded Morrison to be "the greatest pulpit orator on the American continent."
