Perhaps none of R me'a teach ings is more arrogant or deteatible to free Americans than those con cerning marriage. It is seldom that an admission is made in a Romish paper which discloses the true Rom sh positions on this pj iot as does the f- Rowing question and answer c'ipped from To Catholic Northwest Progress of January 1 29 published with the approval of Edward John O'Dea, B shop of 1 Seattle, in that city. H»re it ip 1 in aR its fragrance and ! ean > : May a Catholic lawyer s-.icnrc 1 a divorce for h s client? A ft., a-. 1, /it in itiKtar m ii v ,tdv Culp I absolute divorce wh-n b-- knows the marriage whs invalid, as when ' it has bain s > pro.iouu :> d by competent ecclesiastical iuthoti ty. For just reasons he may peti tion for a divorce, not indeed with the intention of enabling his ^ client to rnarrv Hg;;n while spouse is living, but with a v-w to ob* taining civil »tf ot-s m civil t.'ibu , nal. Mar'iage is neither con u tracked nor dissolved bv civil au a thority. Stater’s Manual, of ^ M-jral Theology in English is c^m- ^ mended to Catholic lawyers. £3 Comment on the extra rdiuary declarations of this papal organ 0 B'-em to be (superfluous, but pieute n te that “marriage is neither contracted nor dissolved by civil Jj authority Such is the postiiei. of R me, and we find .t here re stated so plainly that no one can fail to nuderttiud it. This states 1 ut ha'f of the Rom ish doctrine iu regard to matri mony, for they adtiere just as strenuously to the related priuc:- * pie that marriage is a sacrament 6 that can be celebrated by no an- ! thority other thau the Roman Catholic ohuroh. That precludes ^ the possibility of the papal sys- i tern rtcoguiziug a marriage cere* t many performed by a Protestant ® clergyman as the answer, abovi ® quoted, denies the right of a civil officer to perform the ceremony. Rome c aims the sole authority to bind and loose in manage that i the Poterites claim .u binding and * loosing everything else. For uu- | bridled auiueity and unlimited ; gall the pretentions ol Rome have no equal c NEW HAVEN S HOIYM VIE. The Menace “Movies iu New H veil on a Sunday are prohibited, but when they are run for a worthy end, c it’s different?” So says the New s Haven, Conn., Register, of Feb. s 1, iu telling of the Sunday picture * show recently ins’aiied iu the basement of St Rose’s Romau * Catholic Church of that city. In an approving way the R gis 8 ter goes on to say that Rime has c so prevailed over the blue laws ol 1 Connecticut as to run a Sunday movie for revenue which had 1.000 £ patroi.s at its pening and cleared tvo hundred dollars net pr fit. - It is said that Tbcs. F. Egnu, ! ocief of the state police, approves ' the plan, aud that I be piufiss are 1 to bo used in establishing a pare ohial school. 1 Now, just note the full effect 1 aud meaning of this beautiful 1 scheme to get money with which f to “make America Catholic.” * No other picture eh w is permitt ed iu N w Haven on Sunday is given aud tha profits c il* cted in I a building that is exempt from taxation. Being strictly Romish in ownership aud coutrol, it af fords the best opportunity con ceivable for futheriug every p p ish scheme from twisting history aud misstatn g facts to an assault No one would deny the pope’s servants the right- to teach their peculiar ideas provided they taught a* the expense of the par ties interested and without privi leges that are unju-t to the own ers of ether shows and to New Haven taxpayers. But this is a clear case of Rome obtaining a special privilege of financial value on the plea that X their movie is “run for a worthy sud.’ We dare sav that there are many enterprises run in the city of New Haven for worthy ends that are not favored with a mono poly or exemption fsom taxation. As a matter of fact every business should be run for a worthy end than this Romish movie graft salculated to set up a papist ichool to the detriment of the public schools. Is there not enough American manhood in New Haven and ih die good old state of Connecticut o stop this graft? It is by just uoh contemptible beginnings t-ha^ mvileges undermines the tqual ights of a f’fio pe pie and fattens it the • xpeuse of legitimate, tax laying and law abiding citizans. )r is the State of Connecticut iir -ady so thoroughly Romanized hat the will of the pope and his ■ “ l * -— — air pl^y and qnal rights?
