In South America

1583. The Italian secular press itself protested against the refusal of religious liberty to the "Church of Christ" missionaries.

Such protests appeared only in the Communist papers, because Communists had offered to cooperate with the "Church of Christ" evangelists in propaganda against the Catholic Church. Several young Communists were paid regular wages by the evangelists to assist in the work of discrediting the Catholic religion and undermining the faith of the Catholic people. A spokesman for the Italian Government said that he wanted to make it clear that the Protestant missionaries did not realize that the agitators they employed were Communists, and that they had no intention of fostering Communism in Italy; but he said that they had fallen a prey to the Communist game and were helping Communists to pursue it. The Communists were simply exploiting the "Church of Christ" group for their own political ends. To make this episode the grounds for a charge of religious persecution in Italy is absurd.

1584. Wherever the Roman Catholic Church is dominant, we find the same intolerance. Take South America. In 1942 the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions had to protest against the "efforts of the Roman Hierarchy to deprive Protestant Churches of the right to propagate their faith in Latin America".

The Governments, not the Catholic Hierarchy, had introduced in seven of the South America Republics legislation to prevent further Protestant foreign missionaries from entering their respective territories, declaring the Visas would be refused on the score that such persons were regarded as undesirable aliens. The Presbyterian protest found its way to the State Department of the U.S.A. at Washington, but the U.S. Government replied that it acknowledged the right of the South American Republics to make, interpret and administer their own immigration laws, and declared that it had no intention of questioning the decision of any South American Government on this matter.
