THE TRUTH ABOUT THE POPE!
“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. (Matthew 24:11)”
“Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the Called Out Ones of Yahweh, which he bought with his own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away talmidim (disciples) after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears. (Acts 20:28-31)”
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Messiah. (Colossians 2:8)”
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. (2 Peter 2:1,2)”
“Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. (Jude 1:8)”
“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. (1 John 2:18)”
The Roman Catholic Church, headquartered in Rome, Italy, has its own powerful City-State, the Vatican, and claims over 1 Billion members worldwide The Roman Catholic Church teaches its followers that she is the true Faith. Yet most Roman Catholics are unaware that the Roman Catholic Church has so drastically developed her doctrines over the centuries away from Scripture that if the first century Netzarim could step into the 21st century to hear her teachings first hand, they would not even recognize her as the Faith of Yahweh. However, they would recognize her as – “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS.”
Where did the paganization of Christianity begin? At its inception at the Council of Nicea in 325 CE. The Roman emperor Caesar Constantine organized the Roman Church and unified its doctrines.
Constantine retained the title of chief priest of the state cult until he died. When he died in 337 CE, he was still engaged in the process of simultaneously building pagan temples and Christian churches, and was slowly turning over the reigns of his pagan priesthood to the Bishop of Rome.
Caesar Gratian was the first emperor to refused to accept the title Pontiff Maximus (Supreme Priest) in 376 CE. So, in 378 CE Bishop Demasus of Rome assumed the title.
On the vacated seat of the Roman Empire arose the papacy. Said Adolf Harnack, "The Pope...is Caesar’s successor."—Adolf Harnack, What is Christianity? (New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1903), p. 270. From hereon, the Bishop of Rome was the Supreme Priest to the pagans and the head of the Christian church; the streams of paganism and Christianity flowed together under the leadership of Pontifex Maximus, ultimately to be shortened to the Pope.
The Pope is called the “vicar” (Vicar of Christ, Vicarious Filii Dei, Successor of St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Patriarch of the West, Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Bishop of Rome, Sovereign of Vatican City) meaning he is vicariously “the anointed.” Concerning this, “Rebbe YahShua answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am anointed and will deceive many. (Matthew 24:4,5)”
By claiming to be “anointed,” the Pope claims religious as well as civil power this is represented by the two keys in the Gregorian Crest. His civil key was established when the Heruli, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths would not recognize the Bishop of Rome as king, and were deposed.
The religious key of the kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greco-Rome are preserved in the papacy. The priesthood and sacramental ritual of Catholicism were taken directly from the Babylonian cults.
After the death of Miltiades (Melchiades), a Messianic Believer from Northern Africa and overseer of the traditionally difficult Roman congregation, Constantine took over the Roman Messianic congregation and made Sylvester overseer giving him the pagan title of Bishop a position he occupied for twenty-one years. Constantine desired to form a super-religion that would incorporate all of the religions of cosmopolitan Rome, a concept that the Greek Sylvester embraced heartily. He re-interpreted the congregation into a “church” a term previously held by the followers of Circe. It was also during the reign of Constantine that the cross, the sacred T of the Tammuz Cult, became a sacred symbol in Christianity. In 314 he placed the symbol of the cross on his coins with the marks of Sol Invictus and Mars Conservator. With the public position of the congregation now a Church so greatly improved, the change was very noticeable in Rome. The congregation that had met in catacombs now had a basilica. The overseer now Bishop who had lived in the ghettos of Rome with the Jews now lived at Fausta’s Lantern Palace. In a deal worked out between Constantine and Sylvester, Constantine would retain the title Caesar and Sylvester would receive the title Pontiff Maximus or Pope, the supreme governor of religion of the Roman Empire. The decisions of the church were endorsed by civil law and backed by military power.
The Catholic Encyclopedia says, "Some bishops, blinded by the splendor of the court, even went so far as to laud the emperor as an angel of God, as a sacred being, and to prophesy that he would, like the Son of God, reign in the heavens.”
With the power of Rome behind him, Sylvester sought to wrestle authority of the Messianic Movement away from the Jewish Believers, namely the family of Rebbe YahShua, who up to this time had held the position of authority.
“A meeting between Silvester and the Jewish [Netzarim] leaders took place in 318....The vital interview was not, as far as we know, recorded, but the issues were very well known, and it is probable the [Rav] Joses, the oldest of the [Netzarim], spoke on behalf of the desposyni ("belonging to the King") and the rest… There were, of course, numerous blood descendants of Joseph…, but only those persons in bloodline with [Rebbe YahShua] through his mother qualified as desposyni... Ever since the Emperor Hadrian had conquered Jerusalem in the year 135, all Jews, and that included [Netzarim], had been forbidden to enter Jerusalem under pain of instant death....
They therefore asked Silvester to revoke his confirmation of Greek Christian bishops in Jerusalem, in Antioch, in Ephesus, in Alexandria, and to name instead desposynos [overseers].... Silvester curtly and decisively dismissed the claims of the [Netzarim]. He told them that the mother church was now in Rome, with the bones of the Apostle Peter, and he insisted that they accept Greek bishops to lead them. (“The Decline and Fall of the Roman Church,” by Father Malachi Martin, New York: Bantam, 1983. 30-31.)” It was the last known discussion between the Netzarim and the Roman congregation that Rabbi Sha’ul had worked so patiently with.
Sylvester systematically had the Roman legion round up as many of the descendants of Rebbe YahShua and had them executed. As you can imagine this had an amazingly strong effect on the Gentile Believers to leave the Messianic Movement and come into the Roman Catholic Church. Christians killed more Messianics in the first century after the Council of Nicea than had been killed by pagans in the century before Nicea.
"That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind.... It is impossible to form a complete conception of the multitude of her victims, and it is quite certain that no powers of imagination can adequately realize their sufferings." - W. E. H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe (1955 ed.), Vol. 2, p. 40.
Rome through right of succession is the Babylon of the Apocalypse; and her character is seen by her system, the grand objects of her worship, her sabbath. her festivals, her doctrine and discipline, her rites and ceremonies, her priesthood and their orders, have all been derived from ancient Babylon. The Pope instead of being “Vicarious Dios” is truly the lineal successor of the throne of Belshazzar. For if it was MYSTERY, BABYLON that was birthed that night, when the Pagan Pontifex Maximus -king of Babylon, in the midst of his thousand lords, "praised the gods of gold, and of silver, and of wood, and of stone" (Dan 5:4), thus the Church of Rome is entitled to the name MYSTERY, BABYLON.
“I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of YahShua. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement….the angel said to me, "Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns…The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. (Revelation 17:1-7,9)”

Since the Roman Catholic Church cannot vindicate its teachings solely by the use of Holy Scripture, Papal Infallibility has usurped the authority of Scripture. Catholic Author John O'Brien: "Great as is our reverence for the Bible, reason and experience compel us to say that it alone is not a competent nor a safe guide as to what we are to believe." The New Catholic Catechism states: "The task of interpreting the Word of G-d authentically has been entrusted solely to the Magisterium of the Church, that is, to the Pope..."
However, the Roman Popes repeatedly contradicted each other:
Bishop Liberius signed the Arian Sirmium Creed which denied the Deity of Messiah; the next Pope in line ratified the Trinitarian Creed.
Pope Honorius contradicted so many Popes that he was anathematized (cursed) by Councils and Popes for centuries.
According to the Catholic Bishop Luitprand of Cremona who lived at the time of Pope John XII 955 CE, "No honest lady dared to show herself in public, for Pope John had no respect either for single girls, married women, or widows-they were sure to be defiled by him, even on the tombs of the holy apostles, Peter and Paul."
Pope Alexander VI (1492-1503) was a pedophile (shock!) who lived in public incest with his two sisters and his own daughter, Lucretia, from whom, he had a child. In 1501 he hosted a sex orgy in the Vatican.
Pope Stephen VI brought former Pope Formosus to trial by digging up his corpse from the grave and placing the body upon a throne. He was found guilty of heresy, his priestly vestments were ripped from his rotting flesh, his fingers were hacked off, and his body was dragged through the streets of Rome with great fanfare and thrown into the Tiber River.
The second successor of Pope Stephen had the body of Formosus, which a monk had drawn from the Tiber River, reinterred with full honors. Formosus' official orders were then declared valid.
Then Pope Sergius III turned around and declared that Pope Stephen was correct and Pope Formosus was wrong.
Pope Eugene IV condemned Joan of Arc to be burned alive as a witch. Then the Pope turned around and declared her to be a saint.
Pope Sixtus V had a version of the Bible prepared which he declared to be accurate. Just two years later, Pope Clement VIII declared that it was full of errors.
Pope Pius IX, in 1854 taught, “[Mary] has been appointed by G-d to be the Queen of heaven and earth” but it was not made "official" doctrine till 1954 by Pope Pius XII.
Rev. M. Hobart Seymour, in his Evenings with the Romanists, page 254, said, “I can never forget the shock I received when I first saw in their churches in Italy, the Virgin Mary crowned as Queen of heaven, seated on the same throne with Jesus crowned King of heaven. These were the God-man and God-woman enthroned alike. There was nothing to distinguish the one above the other."
Pope Pius IX, after decreeing the Immaculate Conception, made the cornerstone of the Romanish faith to believe and to teach “that salvation is received solely and alone through Mary.”
"In 1858, a six-year-old Jewish child, Edgardo Montaro, was kidnapped by papal police in Bologna on the pretext that he had been baptized 'in extremis' (i.e. when near death) by a servant girl six years earlier. Placed in the reopened House of Catechumens, the child was forcibly instructed in the Catholic faith. Despite the pleas of Edgardo's parents, [Pope Pius IX] adopted the child and liked to play with him, hiding him under his soutane and calling out, "where's the boy?" The world was outraged; no less than 20 editorials on the subject were published given the New York Times and both Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria and Napoleon III of France begged the Pope to return the child to his rightful parents, all in vain. [Pope Pius IX] kept Edgardo cloistered in a monastery, where he was eventually ordained as a priest." . . . (p.11)
"The notion of Jewish obstinacy was a crucial element in the case of Edgardo Montaro. When the parents of the kidnapped Edgardo pleaded in person with the Pope for the return of their son, [Pope Pius IX] told them that they could have their son back at once if only they converted to Catholicism -- which, of course, they would do instantly if they opened their hearts to Christian revelation. But they would not, and did not. The Montaras, in the view of [Pope Pius IX], had brought all their suffering upon their own heads as a result of their obduracy." (from Hitler's Pope, by John Cornwell, p. 27) In light of today’s revelation of priestly pedophilia the kidnapping makes sense.
Pope Pius XII in 1950 taught "The assumption of Mary" bodily into heaven without Scriptural authority.
Like it or not, Pope Pius XII was Hitler’s Pope. “As the papal envoy in Munich in 1932, prior to his becoming Pope in 1939, Cardinal Pacelli considered the Jews to be part of a Bolshevik plot to destroy Christendom and agreed to sanction the Vatican-German Concordat of 1933 that aided Hitler's rise to power. In doing so, he cleared the way for Hitler's “Final Solution” to continue. “He was Hitler's pawn. He was Hitler's Pope.” (Hitler's Pope: The Secret History of Pope Pius XII)
"The (ordinary) German Catholic supported Hitler's wars not only because such support was required by the NAZI ruler but also because his religious leaders formally called upon him to do so; not only because the actions and opinion of his fellow citizens made him feel obligated to share the nation's burdens and sorrows but also because, by example and open encouragement, the Catholic press and Catholic organizations gave their total commitment to the nation's cause; not only because of deep-felt fears of the terrible price (that) nonconformity would bring or the warm surge of satisfaction accompanying nationalistic or patriotic identification with the war effort, but also because his most cherished religious values had been called into play to encourage him to take his post 'on the field of honor' 'in the defense of Volk and Vaterland.' (the people and the fatherland) " p. 56 , and
"The German Catholic who looked to his religious superiors for spiritual guidance and direction regarding service in Hitler's wars received virtually the same answers he would have received from the NAZI ruler himself." German Catholics and Hitler's Wars, p. 17)
"The Church's interests cannot fail to coincide with ours alike in our fight against the symptoms of degeneracy in the world of to-day, in our fight against the Bolshevist culture, against an atheistic movement, against criminality, and in our struggle for the consciousness of a community in our national life, for the conquest of hatred and disunion between the classes, for the conquest of civil war and unrest, of strife and discord. These are not anti-Christian, these are Christian principles." (Adolf Hitler, in a speech delivered at Koblenz, August 26, 1934.)What About Pope John Paul II (Bishop Karol Wojtyla)?
First, I believe Pope John Paul II was guilty of murder by omission. On September 28, 1978, 33 days after his election, Bishop Albino Luciani - Pope John Paul I, the Smiling Pope, was declared dead. No official death certificate was ever given. No official autopsy was ever preformed. His body was hastily embalmed. Official cause of death – unknown.
Here is what is known:
One hour before his death, Pope John Paul I placed on the desk of Cardinal Jean Villot, Vatican Secretary of State a list of appointments, resignations, transfers and doctrinal changes that would have transformed the Roman Catholic Church betraying the teachings of Pope Paul VI.
That evening 5 men were agonizing over the new Papacy.
Cardinal Jean Villot had noticed on the Pope’s desk the document, Humanae Vitae, the encyclical that prohibited artificial birth control. He noticed the annotations all over the document that had it been made doctrine would have reversed the long held policy. He was going to approve an anovulant pill developed by Professor Pincus - that this would become the Catholic birth-control pill. He also knew that the Pope was meeting with a US Congressional delegation concerning world population control and the Pope had promised a great surprise.
One floor below Pope John Paul’s apartment the lights were still on in the apartment of the Vatican Bank Chief, Chicago born Bishop Paul Marcinkus. For the past 33 days Pope John Paul’s men had been auditing the bank. He had received word that they had found billions in irregularities and Pope John Paul was planning to go public with his findings.
In Buenos Aires another banker tied to Bishop Paul Marcinkus had Pope John Paul I on his mind. His name was Robert Calvi. Pope John Paul I had notified the Bank of Italy that there were irregularities emanating from the Vatican Bank through the Bank of Italy leading to the Banco Ambrosiano in Buenos Aires. Through this bank Bishop Paul Marcinkus had amassed over 1 billion dollars for himself and countless more for his cronies. He was eventually convicted for currency fraud in 1981 - (over $1.3 billion dollars was missing from bank funds). Calvi fled to England where he was found dead, hanging from a bridge in London.
In New York, Sicilian banker Michele Sindona had been anxiously monitoring Pope John Paul’s activities. For three years he had been fighting Italian extradition for the fraudulent diversion of $225 million. The US government had ruled he had to go to Italy because Pope John Paul I had found that organized crime monies had been being laundered through the Vatican Bank by Robert Calvi but masterminded by Michele Sindona. Sindona was later convicted and found poisoned in 1986 in his prison cell.
In Chicago, Cardinal John Cody worried about Pope John Paul I. Cardinal Cody ruled over one of the richest archdiocese in the world for over 12 years. The archdiocese represented 2.5 million Catholics with nearly 3,000 priests, over 450 parishes with an unreported annual income over $250 million. For years priests, nuns, and lay workers had petitioned the Vatican to remove him because of his immorality. Pope Paul had refused to remove him. However, Cardinal Cody had been notified Pope John Paul I was removing him.
That evening, Pope John Paul I sat down to a dinner of clear soup, veal, fresh beans and a little salad. Sipping occasionally from a glass of water. At 8:45 p.m., Pope John Paul I phoned Cardinal Giovanni Colombo in Milan and discussed the changes he intended to make. "Of the phone conversation, Cardinal Colombo has said, 'He spoke to me for a long time in a completely normal tone from which no physical illness could be inferred. He was full of serenity and hope. His final word was, 'Pray.'" By 11 PM of that evening, Pope John Paul I was dead of a myocardial infarction, a form of heart attack.
Davis Yallop's book based on the testimony of Rome’s Police Chief, "In God's Name: An Investigation into the Murder of Pope John Paul I," (1984), believes that digitalis was the poison used to kill him. Just half a teaspoon of digitalis can cause a fatal heart attack.
The Pope was already taking Effortil, a low dose form of digitalis, for low blood pressure. The bottle of Effortil disappeared along with the Pope's glasses and slippers, probably because there were traces of vomiting on them. This was a symptom of digitalis poisoning. Also, the Pope's Will had disappeared. The embalmers were called immediately after Cardinal Villot confirmed the Pope's death at 5:30 am. No last rites sacrament of extreme unction was given!
Cardinal Villot's account was that Pope John Paul’s death was a tragic accident. He alleged that the Pope overdosed on his own medication. He would change his story three times before the official “heart attack” story was settled upon. By March 1979 Cardinal Villot was dead.
According to the Swiss Guard, Bishop Marcinkus was seen on foot lurking near the papal residence at an unusually early hour on the morning of the Pope’s death.
Within two weeks the College of Cardinals had elected Cardinal Karol Wojtyla Pope, the first non-Italian in some 450 years.
Arrest warrants were issued for Bishop Marcinkus and two subordinates, but they stayed inside Vatican City and charges were eventually dropped. On Sept. 28, 1981, Pope John Paul II promoted Marcinkus to archbishop and pro-president of the Pontifical Commission for the State of Vatican City (a virtual governorship). He retained his post as head of the Vatican Bank by Pope John Paul II, Bishop Marcinkus resigned from the Vatican Bank in 1990 for a modest retirement in Sun City, Arizona.
A federal grand jury served Cardinal Cody with a number of subpoenas on January 1981, demanding to see his financial records. He refused. In September when he still had not cooperated, the Chicago Sun Times ran a story outlining a large array of serious crimes he is alleged to have committed. Cardinal Cody died April 1982 and with him the investigation into his wrongdoing. Pope John Paul II allowed Cardinal Cody to stay on in the Chicago archdiocese till his death.
A curious side note to the Vatican Bank scandal. In 1993, an Italian court convicted Slovak-born Bishop Pavel Hnilica of losing $2.8 million of Church funds by trying to buy a suitcase supposedly containing documents that would absolve the Vatican of blame.
If the College of Cardinals silenced the true causes of death, in effect the entire College, including the Pope John Paul II, is an accomplice after the fact of the murder of Pope John Paul I.
“It would be natural that Holy Men would promote Holy Men. Evil men logically would be expected to endorse and promote evil men. Homosexuals would be expected to endorse, promote and protect homosexuals. Pedophiles, by Logical Extension, would be apt to defend, endorse, promote, and protect pedophiles especially if there would ever be a question of possible or actual blackmail. (“The Priesthood” by St. Alphonsus de Liguori)”
The coronation Pope John Paul II caused quite a stir amongst the College of Cardinals by the Pope refusing to take the Papal Coronation Oath that had bee taken by all popes since the 7th Century. I believe he could not take the oath which reads, “I will keep without sacrifice to itself the discipline and the rite of the Church. I will put outside the Church whoever dares to go against this oath, may it be somebody else or I,” in light of the growing scandals of which misappropriation of funds is the least. Death Penalty
Messiah YahShua said, “You have heard that it was said to the men of old, You shall not kill, and whoever kills shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the court. (Exodus 20:13 & Deuteronomy 5:17) But I say to you that everyone who continues to be angry with his brother or harbours malice (grudge) against him shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the court; and whoever speaks contemptuously and insultingly to his brother shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, You cursed fool! [Raca - You empty-headed idiot!] shall be liable to and unable to escape the hell (Gehenna) of fire. (Matthew 5:21,22)”
You must have a Torah based reason to be angry and even then you must keep your temper under strict control. We walk not after the flesh (evil inclination) by after the spirit and the Fruit of the Spirit is temperance or self-control. And whatever you do, do not go to sleep while being angry for it will fester.
“When angry, do not sin; do not ever let your wrath (your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down. (Ephesians 4:26)”
People in the World To Come will not go around calling each other names. That is not Kingdom behaviour. That is not appropriate behaviour for a citizens of the Commonwealth of Israel! The author of the letter to the Hebrews understood the holiness that is required of Believers because of our heavenly citizenship. “But you have come to Mount Zion, to the Heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living Elohim. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the assembly of the firstborn, whose names are written in Heaven. You have come to Yahweh, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to YahShua the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from Heaven? (Hebrews 12:22-25)”
Rebbe YahShua mentions three places men should fear: the “court,” the “Sanhedrin,” and the “Gehenna, the lake of fire.” Rebbe YahShua makes reference to all courts of law, which can punish the murderer with death. The basis of the interpretations of every law before the courts is not precisely the letter of the law but the intent of the law. What was the intent that was to be accomplished by the enacting of that law? This is also what we find in the courts of Heaven. Why did our Heavenly Father command, “Thou shalt not kill.” Rebbe YahShua said it was to control anger. We must control our anger which, left unchecked might lead to murder and thus our own execution; anger which stops short of murder but causes us to assassinate the character of our brother by saying “Raca” or “empty-headed idiot” will lead us to an eminently higher court in Heaven whose sentence is more severe than death. Rebbe YahShua said, “…be not afraid of them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the spirit: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both spirit and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
Pope John Paul II worked diligently to keep murderers from receiving the death penalty calling those countries which have such laws fellow murderers while only making pious statements against perpetrators of legalized murder by abortion. He condones the actions of abortionists by omission by not clearly calling for their arrest, trial and execution.
“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of Elohim has Elohim made man. (Genesis 9:6)”Pedophilia & Homosexuality
The Messiah said, “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. 6But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come! (Matthew 18:5-7)”
By omission, again, Pope John Paul II is guilty of pedophilia by failing to remove cardinals and bishops known to protect pedophiles, facts that a man in his position would have absolutely known about. Instead, he throws a few under priests at the authorities and calls it even. He is an accomplice in all these offenses against Yahweh and therefore is just as guilty as those who commit these acts under his jurisdiction.
Pope John Paul II tries to act as though Homosexuality is rare in the Church however a study revealed in the Kansas City Star newspaper on Jan. 31, 2000, indicates that from 15% to 30% of Catholic priests are homosexual with about half of them active. The article reveals that Roman Catholic priests (including bishops) in the United States are dying from AIDS-related illnesses at a rate four times that of the general population, and yet the Pope refuses to remove these clerics.
However, the “Wanderer,” a conservative Catholic newspaper reported, “how the Los Angeles contingent of bishops was so alarmed about a document being prepared at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which would bar the Ordination of homosexuals as diocesan priests or for religious orders, that they approached Pio Cardinal Laghi to express their opposition. Cardinal Laghi, told the L.A. bishops not to worry because Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger's proposed document would never get through the Vatican vetting process…I have heard likewise that there are more gay men in the Vatican than all of San Francisco.”Idolatry
Our Heavenly Father said, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I Yahweh thy Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20: 4-6)” Yet, Pope John Paul II saw no problem practicing idolatry.
Aug. 8, 1985, Pope John Paul II took part in Animist (animism can be considered to be the original idolatry – “Who changed the truth of Yahweh into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amien. (Romans 1:25)”) rites in the "Sacred Forest" in Togo.
In Feb. 2,1986 upon traveling to India to visit Sister Theresa, Pope John Paul II allowed a Shiva priestess to bless him and create the traditional Shiva mark on his forehead. Shiva meaning "One who purifies everyone by the utterance of His name" is the third god in the Hindu trinity. He is called the Destroyer.
Oct. 27, 1986, Pope John Paul II hosts 130 representatives of all the "main religions" in Assisi to pray for world peace.
Feb. 4 1993, Pope John Paul II engaged in rites with the high priests and witch doctors of Voodoo.
On the anniversary of the founding of Modern Israel, May 14, 1999, Pope John Paul II received a delegation composed of the Shi'ite imam of the Khadum mosque, the Sunni president of the council of administration of the Iraqi Islamic Bank and a representative of the Iraqi ministry of religion. At the end of the audience the Pope bowed to the Muslim scriptures and kissed the Koran (Qu'ran) at the Vatican. A Koran that blasphemes: "O people of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Yeshu son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which he conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit [sic.] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers and say not 'Three' - Cease! (it is better for you! - Allah is only one G-d. Far is it removed from His transcendent majesty that He should have a son...The Messiah will never scorn to be a slave unto Allah."Sainthood & AntiSemitism
September 3, 2000 Pope John Paul II beatified Pope Pius IX who was renown for his frequent anti-Semitic speeches. In one address, he is said to have called Jews “dogs of which there are too many present in Rome, howling and disturbing us everywhere”. In 1848 Pius IX forced the Jews of Rome back into the old ghetto to which they had been confined for centuries, and in the following year, he enacted racial laws against them. Jews were banned from public hospitals, prevented from giving evidence against Christians in papal courts and excluded from all institutes of secondary and higher education. And as we have stated, stole a Jewish boy for his own sick reasons.
Pope John Paul II was forced to quietly suspend plans for Pope Pius XII's sainthood known as “Hitler's Pope” due to widespread opposition from Jewish groups and others, the Catholic Church has defended his record.
Pope John Paul II on March 16, 1998 apologizes for the Catholic Church's silence and inaction during the Holocaust but does not admit complicity.
When he visited Israel in 2000, standing in Jerusalem, Pope John Paul II never recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. During his remarks, the pope made no reference to Jerusalem at all. However, when the Pope visited the Palestinian-ruled town of Bethlehem and celebrated Mass there, he made reference to the Palestinian people's right to a homeland. I do not believe that anyone could claim Pope John Paul II as a friend of Israel. He was an avid diplomat of the Roman Catholic Church and did whatever he could to push its agenda.
