Tho A. P. A., properly apeaklng, I
nlmply a patriot In Institution. One

Humanism In America, knowing It to
bo pernicious and dangerous. Cath

tho second, are not good cltlens And
should move to Homo. A the A. P. A.

regardless of creed, 111 liavo a still
kindlier feeling toward It. It work
for tho best interest of tho country wo

olicism Is a delusion and a snaro, and
our turn Is to oonvlnoo all, both Cath
olic and Protestants, that It I such, and
whatever may bo Haul I said with kind
Intent, although to tho deluded Cath
olic believer the truth may Hotnetlino
appear unpleasant. Wo bellevo that If
tho pillar of Homan Catholicism bo
torn away tho structure will fall, and
the main pillar are Ignorance, Idola
try, fanaticism, Intolerance, bigotry,
darkness, r-ealotry, blind tradition, nar
row thought, blind obedience. May
