The Other Americans: Loyalists, Confederates, and Other Dissenters – How Catholic Were They?
Theme: Theme: Catholic and Counterrevolutionary
This was Charles Coulombe’s second talk. It was all about the Church in American history. “The Other Americans: Loyalists, Confederates, and Other Dissenters — How Catholic Were They?” was a very informative survey of Catholic characters from the days of persecution in almost all the Thirteen Colonies, through the Revolution itself (which the speaker did not think was a just war), through the horrors of the War Between the States, up to the World Wars. Again, the evils of revolutionary thought are brought out in their concrete consequences. The genocidal murderer, regicide, and vicious anti-Catholic Oliver Cromwell, for example, sent troops in the 1650s from England to conquer Virginia and Maryland. Mr. Coulombe, just as C.J. Doyle, is a treasure trove of historical sidebars.
