Chiniquy (30 July 1809 16 January 1899) was a Canadian Catholic priest who converted to Presbyterianism and became known for his anti-Catholic writings and sermons. In the period between 1885 and 1899 he was the focus of a great deal ofdiscussion in the United States of America. During the 1880s his conspirac y theories included the claim to have exposed the Jesuits as the assassins of President Abraham Lincoln, and that, if unchecked, the Jesuits could eventually politically rule the United States. Chiniquy was born in 1809 in the village of Kamouraska, Quebec. He lost his father at an early age and wasadopted by his uncle. As a young man, Chiniquy studied to become a Catholi c priest at the Petit Seminaire (Little Seminary) in Nicolet, Quebec. He was ordained a Catholic priest in 1833. After his ordination, he served his Church in Quebec and later emigrated to Illinois. During the 1840s, he led avery successful campaign throughout Quebec against alcohol and drunkenness . In 1856, he was sued for slander by one of his parishoners, and was defended by Abraham Lincoln. The case was eventually settled out of court. Aftertwice being suspended by two different bishops he was excommunicated from the Catholic Church, and joined the Presbyterian Church along with a reported 2000 followers. He then became a dedicated anti-Catholic preacher, attacking what he claimed was its theology. He claimed that the Catholic Church is pagan, that Roman Catholics worship the Virgin Mary, that its theology spoils the Gospel and that its theology is anti-Christian. He also claimed that the Vatican had planned to take over the United States by importing Catholic immigrants from Ireland, Germany and France. Chiniquy further claimedthat he was falsely accused by his superiors (and that Abraham Lincoln had come to his rescue), that the American Civil War was a plot against the Un ited States of America by the Vatican, and that the Vatican was behind the Confederate cause, the death of President Lincoln and that Lincoln's assassins were faithful Roman Catholics serving Pope Pius IX. Chiniquy earned hisliving by writing several anti-Catholic books and tracts and making speech es attacking the Roman Catholic Church. His two most influential works are Fifty Years in The Church of Rome and The Woman and The Confessional. Thesetwo books helped to swell the tide of anti-Catholic resentment in the Unit ed States. These books were written at a time when Americans were suspicious of foreign influence, as typified by the Know-Nothing movement. He died in Montreal on January 16, 1899." - wikipedia.
