Guilty of Treason (1950)
Charles Bickford: Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty
Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty : The move against the schools is the final move against the Church. We had some five-thousand schools in Hungary, three-thousand of them are Catholic. And as long as I am responsible in any degree for these schools, we shall teach there the Gospel according to Jesus Christ, *NOT* according to Karl Marx or Commissar Stalin.
Hungarian State Police Col. Timar : How many times have you been confined to jail?
Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty : Three. First, in 1919 as a young priest, I opposed the administration of Bela Kun the dictator.
Hungarian Secret Police Col. Gabriel Peter [i.e. Peter Gabor] : You will refrain from referring to the name of Bela Kun, the Trotskyite!
Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty : In 1944, as a bishop, I spoke out against the cruelties of the Nazi occupation. I found myself again confined to prison. Today, as a cardinal, I find myself in prison once more.
Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty : [at his sentencing] I have no quarrel with the Russian people. But I *DO* condemn the police state to which they are enslaved!
