File then discusses the evangelization of Madhya Pradesh in India through exploitation of "their poverty and suffering". File then discusses John Foster Dulles's anti-Communist (which Leslie sees as pro-Franco) beliefs, defending the "missionary" efforts of Communism by declaring that "when Spain lay bleeding under the blows of Mussolini and Hitler was it the atheistic Communist society that turned its face away and passed by on the other side, or was it the 'Christian' West?"
