WASHINGTON, Dec. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new book reveals the CIA's influence on the Catholic Church.
Who: David Wemhoff, author of James Courtney Murray, Time/Life and the American Proposition: How the CIA's Doctrinal Warfare Program Changed the Catholic Church.
What: E. Michael Jones of Fidelity Press and editor of Culture Wars magazine will be introducing Wemhoff, who will be describing the evidence he has discovered to support his claims which are the result of years of investigation.
WHEN: Monday, December 7th, 9:30 a.m., at the National Press Club
WHERE: National Press Club, 529 14th St., N.W., Zenger Room
Wemhoff's new book describes Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous "Four Freedoms speech" in 1941 that set forth a vision for the re-engineering of societies around the globe. The means was psychological warfare, involving the manipulation of ideas, words and symbols to divide target societies and convince these societies of the ideology that formed America.
The most important society America targeted was the Roman Catholic Church. Media mogul Henry R. Luce, founder and publisher of enormously influential magazines like Time and Life, used the CIA's doctrinal warfare program to turn the Catholic Church into a promoter of American ideas.
This struggle reached its culmination at the Second Vatican Council with the promulgation of the document Declaration on Religious Liberty. Catholic doctrine did not change, but, defeated at the Council, the Americanists used their media power to win the battle over who got to interpret the Council with disastrous consequences for both the Church and the world.
