Quote:Any information would help, cheers.

This is the infamous, and phony, "Knights of Columbus Oath" which lost Al Smith the White House in 1928. It even hurt John Kennedy in 1960. It was written and circulated by malicious Protestant groups in the United States.

Statements like, "I do further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will of my own or any mental reservation whatsoever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors," should be a dead giveaway to its origins.
