Excerpt from Americans Warned of Jesuitism: Or the Jesuits Unveiled

Americans, I am a stranger among you; then allow me to introduce myself to you. All that I shall say respecting myself I can prove by authentic testimony and official letters.

I was born near Lyons, France. My father and mother were Roman Catholics, and brought me up in that belief. My father died when I was seven years of age. After my first studies, my mother sent me to colleges directed by Romish priests, where, witnessing the scandalous lives of the clergymen, I became an infidel. Having completed my studies - I was then seventeen years of age - I came again to the maternal house. My mother, who saw my indifference to religious practices, even for prayer, questioned me about it.

I answered that I had no longer a religious belief; that the Bible was a tissue of tales; that Christ had been merely a philosopher; that the gospel did not contain the true teaching of Christ; that our souls are not immortal; that the doctrine of the future life is a kingly and sacerdotal invention to lead and oppress more surely the people: in short, I answered that religion is mere quackery, and that the priests are either mountebanks, abusing the public credulity, or ignorant men. I added that I doubted even of the existence of God.

My mother appeared deeply afflicted; still she listened to me with attention and without uttering a single word. When I stopped, she raised her eyes to heaven and exclaimed: "What a misfortune for a poor mother!
