Pius IX on Socialism, Communism, and Protestantism
Pope Pius IX, Nostis et Nobiscum (#6), Dec. 8, 1849: “… the goal of this most iniquitous plot is to drive people to overthrow the entire order of human affairs and to draw them over to the wicked theories of this Socialism and Communism, by confusing them with perverted teachings.
