IS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH A CHRISTIAN CHURCH?
Greetings in these last hours of Earth's History. I would like to offer in this newsletter a short list of facts that prove the Roman Catholic Church is not a Christian church. In fact I believe it will become plain after reading this letter that the Roman Catholic church is actually a cult. I cannot share ALL the facts because as of right now, I now have over 1400 printed pages on my website on this subject, and that would make for one massive email eh? So rather than inundate you with mountains of overwhelming evidence, I will simply try my best to illustrate a few "key points" that make this issue undeniable. I pray you do as the Three Angels of Revelation have already done and use these facts to evangelize Catholics with the Truth about their church. Most Catholics I run across are unaware these documents, articles, excerpts, doctrines and facts exist. Some have been told about them, but ignore them wholeheartedly simply because a lying priest or some other agent of Rome has told them to ignore it as hearsay or propaganda of "Catholic-bashers." That is why I am compiling these facts for you. I pray it will help those of you out there that are trying to convince loved ones that yes, the Roman Catholic church can in no way be the Church that Jesus Christ started, and here is some easy to research proof.
I would like to point out one simple and easy to remember FACT that all of us can use in evangelizing Catholics in the following days. Universally they are all taught to proclaim that "Peter was the first Pope" However, most are totally unaware of one simple historic fact that blows this theory so far out of the water it actually amazes me how I missed it in my 29 years as a devoted Catholic. The title "Pontifex Maximus" or "Pontiff" is not unique to the Pope's of the Roman catholic church. Historic documented fact is, they were FIRST used as titles for the Caeser's of the Pagan Empire of ROME!
The Oxford English Dictionary provides the following as the definition of the term, Pontifex Maximus: Pontifex 1. Roman Antiquity. A member of the principal college of priests in ancient Rome (Pre-Christian paganism Ed.), the head of which was the Pontifex Maximus or chief pagan priest."
The Columbia Encyclopedia - Fifth Edition defines Pontifex Maximus as: "The highest priest of Roman religion and official head of the college of pontifices. As the chief administrator of religious affairs he regulated the conduct of religious ceremonies, consecrated temples and other holy places, and controlled the calendar. During the time of the empire, and until Christianity became firmly established, the emperor was designated pontifex maximus. After the SUPREMACY of Christianity, the popes assumed the title."
Now notice the definition for "Pontiff" in The Catholic Encyclopedia, page 549, Volume 11:
"This term, borrowed from the vocabulary of pagan religion in Rome, early made its way into Christian discourse. Lexicographers derive it, though with clear misgivings, from the Latin words pons (bridge) and facere (to make, build). If this derivation be accepted, it is easy to see how readily it applies to those who build a bridge, make a way for men to God. In any case it designated in Roman religion members of the council of priests (pagan..ed.) forming the "Pontifical College", which ranked as the highest priestly organization at Rome and was presided over by the "Pontifex Maximus". In present ecclesiastical usage the term "Pontiff" (with its derivatives, "Pontifical" and the verb (Pontificate") is applied to bishops and especially to the Pope.
At this point, I do not want to get into discussing all the blasphemous names of the Popes as we can see is yet happening AGAIN in this name that calls the POPE a "a bridge, make a way for men to God." Fact remains, this my friends is the chief job description of Jesus Christ, NOT the Pope! For it is written!
1 Timothy 2:5, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;"
My point is this. They call Peter the first Pope. Yet we see that the Caeser's were called "Pontifex Maximus" or "Pontiff" as well! So, riddle me this. Was not Rome STILL in power at the time Jesus made this statement to Peter? I ask, HOW is it possible for Peter to be holding the title Pontifex Maximus, or Pontiff, while Caesar still lived? Did Jesus and Peter kill Caeser, overthrow Rome, and place Peter on a throne? Many Catholics are unaware of just how easy it is to expose the lies of their Church leaders. It's really rather simple at times. Yet, some choose to blindly follow the blind. Sadly, with them there is no hope. So, with that in mind I would like to get back to the real reason I mentioned this fact. It has to do with the following verse they use to solidify their "reasoning" as to why they think Peter was the first Pope.
Matthew 16:18, "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
The Catholic church always quotes this verse to claim Peter as Pope. Regardless of the facts laid out in easy to research historic records. Regardless of the fact that it is also recorded that the Church of Rome did not officially start until... "Vigilius...ascended the papal chair (538 A.D.) under the military protection of Belisarius." History of the Christian Church, Vol. 3, p. 327 Which also proves Peter could not have been the first Pope simply because he would have to be well over 500 years of age in order to sit as Pope when the Church began "officially" in 538AD. So, with this verse in mind, specifically the latter part that has Jesus speaking of HIS church in such a way that declares it as one that "the gates of hell shall not prevail against." Let me remind everyone of a particular ADMISSION of guilt that was brought forth on March 12, 2000 by Pope John Paull II. Out of his own mouth he declares his church cannot possibly be of Jesus Christ. Note the following...
VATICAN CITY, MAR 7 (ZENIT.org).- On March 12, the first Sunday of Lent, John Paul II will publicly ask the Lord's forgiveness for past and present faults of the children of the Church. ...This morning, Bishop Piero Marini, Pontifical Master of Ceremonies, explained the meaning of this Day of Forgiveness in the Vatican Press Office. He explained that "in all generations the holiness of the Church has shined forth, witnessed by an incalculable number of her children; nonetheless, the Church suffers from the contradiction of the presence of sin, which has continued to weigh down in the road of the people of God. ...For the first time in history, John Paul II will confess the sins committed by Christians through the
centuries." ...Specifically, he will admit the sins committed in the service of truth: intolerance and violence against dissidents; religious wars; violence and abuses of the Crusades; and violent methods of the Inquisition. ...The Holy Father will also express the repentance of Christians for the sins committed in relation to the people of Israel: contempt, acts of hostility, and silences.-ZE00030709
I have commented in detail on this article once before along with many others like it in my March 27, 2000 Truth Provide Newsletter There is one more point I want to make clear that I feel many have overlooked. It is actually yet another ADMISSION by the Pope to the fact that the Roman Catholic church is indeed the very entity that Jesus said would come against the Children of God. Not only is the Pope openly admitting to being the leader of the very Church that Prophecy said Antichrist would use to kill over 150 MILLION Christians with. The pope has also said in the above article for all to see that he is confessing the sins of the past, specifically "... the sins committed in the service of truth" Well, Jesus did in fact say...
John 16:2, "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service."
In this confession on March 12, I see an open admission of prophetic fulfillment by the very culprit of that fulfillment. The Pope is actually admitting that his church did EXACTLY as Jesus prophesied the church of ANTICHRIST would do to the Biblical church of Jesus Christ in the latter days. It was prophesied that this church would kill the Christians and think they were doing God's work while doing so. The Pope said that he is confessing the sins committed in "THE SERVICE OF TRUTH" did he not? Is this not prophetically sound? All praise be to a God of such overwhelming accuracy! And to make it oh so much easier to illustrate this prophetic point, please understand that Jesus did say in Matthew 16:18 that the gates of hell will never prevail against his church. In other words, the church of Jesus Christ would never be one to step forward proclaiming itself as one filled with sin and decadence. The church of Jesus Christ would never proclaim to have a history of murder, rape, molestation, drunkenness, fornication, idolatry, and mayhem. The church of Jesus Christ would never step forward and proclaim that they are the ones that killed 150 Million of His followers. Fact is, the Biblical church of Jesus Christ would be those that WERE murdered, raped, and molested throughout history. It is the Church of Jesus Christ that is persecuted, NOT the one DOING the persecution! So, again I ask, would the church of Jesus have one of it's leaders step forward to say this...?
VATICAN CITY, MAR 7 (ZENIT.org).- ...CARDINAL JOSPEH RATZINGER. The Bavarian Cardinal was presenting the document, "Memory and Reconciliation: The Church and the Faults of the Past," written by the International Theological Commission. ... the Cardinal said, "Our history is one of rebellions and sins, we do not ask for forgiveness to condemn others, but to know ourselves and to open to our brothers."-ZE00030708
These articles prove once again they know not the Lord of the Bible. In essence they are spitting in His face calling Him a boldface liar! Jesus said rather plainly that the gates of hell will NOT prevail! Yet the Pope and all his puppets are proclaiming in one fell swoop, "Jesus lied, and here's the proof, we are the church Jesus started! Sin has run rampant! The gates of hell HAVE prevailed!" Is this not a gospel of CoNfUsIoN we find in Rome? Are not the foul feathers of the Cardinals of Rome openly spewing falsehoods against the Real Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords on a daily basis? Jesus says one thing, they say quite the opposite! How much longer will the children of God trapped in this church as well as the churches she influences stand still for this? How long will they believe these lies from hell? For as long as I can remember the Catholic church has proclaimed abortion a sin, has it not? For as long as I can recall they have always preached against abortion and have told billions that it is outright murder. Or am I mistaken? Yet, this proclamation from their own tongues points right back at them as well. Notice this documented admission...
VATICAN CITY, MAR 12 (ZENIT.org).- ...Vietnamese Archbishop François Xavier Nguyên Van Thuân, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, encouraged confession of sins in the area of fundamental rights of the human person: abuses against children, marginalisation of the poor, suppression of the unborn in the maternal womb or their use for experimentation... ZE00031207
Need I say more? Think of it, for YEARS this church has preached against abortion, for YEARS they have called preachers like me and many of my brothers and sisters in Christ liars when we would step forward with documentation on the abortions in this church. And now we see them admitting they did it? So in essence, THEY LIED! They lied for HUNDREDS of years in fact. On ever subject that was asked that would incriminate them, they simply lied. Do you know what this means? Literally BILLIONS of trusting Catholics have gone to their graves over hundreds of years believing that all those "fundies" or "catholic bashers" as we are called by their leaders, were cultist liars! Billions have gone to rest in the ground believing they were in the church of Jesus Christ because they trusted their leaders that LIED to them! March 12, 2000 confirmed that THEY WERE LYING! They not only lied about the evidence we had against them in reality, they lied about the Biblical facts we present as well. Yet another proof of the gates of hell prevailing in a very graphic sense of the word. The sin the Almighty detests the most is LIES! The sin that was first used against the Almighty in heaven as well as in Eden was LIES! And as we can see this very same sin is still favored and used by its father here on earth. And who is that?
John 8:44, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
Understand that Antichrist IS of this world, and he has been since he was cast here long ago. Also understand that he will have an organization on this planet that will do as prophecy declared it to do. The Prophecy of the Christian Bible has already been proven 100% accurate in regards to this point. At present I have over 1400 printed pages on my site proving that all the prophecies that speak of the Beast, his desires, his actions, and his plans have been fulfilled exactly as the Word said they would. PLUS, they were fulfilled in the EXACT YEAR that each prophecy declared it to be fulfilled. Not only is our God 100% accurate to the event! He is also 100% accurate to the date as well! For a summarized look at these prophecies see this page... 666-CHAR.htm Make special note of section #18 were the Bible is verified authentic in regards to identifying who the WHORE OF BABYLON is. Pretty blunt eh? Most never realized it was that blunt before. I praise the Lord Jesus for such bold prophetic facts! It's that easy folks! Jesus did it for us.
Below I have a small list of questions you may want to have your catholic friends ask their priests. Ask them to show them in the Bible where these things are said to be of God. PLEASE NOTICE that they will be totally unable to do so. Some "might" go so far as to twist a Bible passage here and there to try and make 10% or maybe even 15% of these "traditions" to be of Christian Truth. But when you investigate the ENTIRE meaning of the passages they give, you will find demonic error in their theology. All one needs do is read the verse BEFORE AND AFTER the verses they give to understand what's up. Cross reference them as well so as to solidify it in your mind that the Truth you realize IS found throughout the Word. Problem with Catholic theology is it cannot be verified in cross referencing of Bible facts. The Bible can only confirm TRUTH throughout its pages. It cannot carry lies as well. A "twisted" theology can only be backed up by man's traditions, lies, opinions, and ideals. That is why Catholicism uses heavy explanations to every utterance they preach. They cannot use heavy verses that embrace that which they speak simply because they cannot get that many verses out of context on the same subject without being found out by even the youngest babes in Christ. So they opt rather to dazzle you with fancy words, shallow lies, pretty phrases, and self glorifying holy utterances. However, it is written that the Elect CANNOT be deceived. So don't worry... be happy :)
So... ask them. Where is this in the Bible? And remember! Isaiah 8:20, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."

If you would really like to know where these "traditions" originated first, you would do well to investigate the PAGAN BABYLONIAN SYSTEM OF IDOLATRY of ancient times. I am sure you can find literally millions of bits of info online. It is here that you will see the rock hard evidence you require to understand WHO it is the Roman Catholic church truly worships. For a partial list of my findings thus far on this topic...(click here). This list is subject to massive growth as my research continues, so stop by frequently. By the way, the main reason the Bible was placed on the list of "forbidden books" by the council of Valencia in 1229 AD is because MANY people were opening their Bibles to find that most of these "traditions of men" and "doctrines of demons" that the Catholic church calls holy, are warned of in Scripture as DEADLY to the souls of those children of God that embrace them! The Catholic church realized that whenever people did in fact get their hands on a Bible, and read it, they would sooner or later LEAVE the Church of Rome. So, they condemned the Bible to be in the hands of anyone that was not of the clergy, and anyone that did have a Bible was KILLED. March 12, 2000 the Pope and many of his Bishops, Cardinals, Priests, and leaders in the church stepped forward and admitted that this is accurate documented historic FACT. They did do this. They did admit they killed people for trusting the Bible over them. For a quick look at this "so called" mea culpa (apology) of Rome, (click here).
By the way... ONE POINT TO PONDER... Do you realize that the Pagan infiltration of the Roman Catholic church is not a secret to it's leaders? Do you realize that? They understand, admit, and even welcome the infiltration! Here's the proof...
Cardinal Newman admits in his book that; the "temples, incense, oil lamps, votive offerings, holy water, Holidays, and seasons of devotion, processions, blessings of the fields, sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure (of priests, munks and nuns), images, and statues... are all of PAGAN ORIGIN." -The Development of the Christian Religion Cardinal Newman p.359
The penetration of the religion of Babylon became so general and well known that Rome was called the "New Babylon." -Faith of our fathers 1917 ed. Cardinal Gibbons, p. 106
"Confiding then in the power of Christianity to resist the infection of evil, and to transmute the instruments and appendages of demon worship to an evangelical use... the rulers of the church from early times were prepared should occasion arise, to adopt, or imitate, or sanction the existing rites and customs of the populace." -Development of Christian Doctrine, Cardinal Newman. p. 372
It appears yes, they are very aware.
Excerpts from the actual Roman Catholic~ "JESUIT OATH"
NOTICE: The Jesuit Oath of Induction is also recorded in the Congressional Record of the U.S.A. (House Bill 1523, Contested election case of Eugene C. Bonniwell, against Thos. S. Butler, Feb. 15, 1913, pp. 3215-3216) It can also be found in the book entitled, "Subterranean Rome" by Charles Didier translated from the French and published in New York in 1843. Dr. Alberto Rivera escaped from the Jesuit Order in 1967
The Jesuit order of the Roman catholic church is actually and order of priests second only to the SS of Hitler's regime. They have a particular oath that they need to adhere to in order to be ordained/initiated into the order. The complete oath can be viewed here... page6.htm#jesuit What I would like to share with you here for the sake of time is one short paragraph from this oath...
I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.
Anyone with a literal mustard seed SPECK of Jesus Christ within them knows full well that this WELL DOCUMENTED oath that can be researched for all to see proves beyond a shadow of a doubt to be an oath of BLOOD! How can anyone claiming Jesus as Lord remain in this church after reading this oath some of their church leaders have taken and have sworn to live by? It's a simple question...HOW? Here is another section of that very same oath. It's a series of questions asked by the "soon to be Jesuit priest" by his superior...
Question---From whither do you come?
Answer---The Holy faith.
Q.---Whom do you serve?
A.---The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman Catholic Church Universal throughout the world.
Q.---Who commands you?
A.---The Successor of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ.
Q.---Who received you?
A.---A venerable man in white hair.
A.---With a naked dagger, I kneeling upon the cross beneath the banners of the Pope and of our sacred order.
Q.---Did you take an oath?
A.---I did, to destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare neither age, sex nor condition. To be as a corpse without any opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my Superiors in all things without hesitation of murmuring.
Q.---Will you do that?
Q.---How do you travel?
A.---In the bark of Peter the fisherman.
Q.---Whither do you travel?
A.---To the four quarters of the globe.
Q.---For what purpose?
A.---To obey the orders of my general and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and faithfully fulfill the conditions of my oaths.
Q.---Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He, who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Viceregent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated."
Did you notice this statement made? The "soon to be Jesuit priest" says he will follow his oath as a "a corpse without any opinion or will of my own" How many times is this Church going to admit its alegiance with hell before people realize just how blunt it is? I am sure that MANY look upon them in the same way our Lord and Master did the scribes and Pharisees a couple thousand years ago eh? Make special note that Jesus declared in Matthew 23:27, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness." And now we see the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests embracing as holy what Jesus described as evil? They rather bluntly proclaiming themselves as a man of DEATH eh? A corpse? Without opinion? Without his own will? Do you realize what they are actually describing? The ultimate SATANIST! For the Almighty God wants worship enacted by our FREE will, yet Satan will have it by his will, which is FORCE! The devil controlling Rome is just as unmerciful with those it controls as with those it seeks to kill. Fact is, it looks to kill all from within AND without this church. Rome is actually the masterpiece of Satan. The synagogue of Satan! Not only will those giving, and taking these oaths burn. But those acknowledging this church to be of Christ will burn. Revelation 18:1-4 is PLAIN!! It doesn't say to stay IN this church, it declares to COME OUT! And if they don't, regardless of their rank in this church, regardless if they are a Pope, a priest, pew warmer, or just a part time penitent, THE PLAGUES WILL FALL UPON THEIR HEAD! So do as Ezekiel has told us to do people. WARN THEM!
A little known fact...
President Clinton is a graduate of Jesuit Georgetown University in Wash., D.C. I don't know if he took this oath but he manifests all the symptoms of a well trained Jesuit. Now do you understand why the Jesuit Oath of Induction is also recorded in the Congressional Record of the U.S.A. (House Bill 1523, Contested election case of Eugene C. Bonniwell, against Thos. S. Butler, Feb. 15, 1913, pp. 3215-3216) The "Lamb honed beast" (USA) of Revelation is definitely there helping the "Beast" (Vatican) as all the World can plainly see.
The Oath of a Catholic Priest
"I do declare from my heart, without mental reservation. That the Pope is Christ's vicar-general and is the true and only head of the Universal Church throughout the world, and that by virtue of the Keys of binding and loosing given to his Holiness by Jesus Christ, he has power to depose heretical kings, princes, states, commonwealths and governments, all being illegal without his sacred Confirmation, and that they may safely be destroyed. Therefore, to the utmost of my power, I will defend this doctrine and his Holiness' rights and customs against all usurpers of the Protestant authority whatsoever, especially against the now pretended authority of the Church of England and all adherents, in regard that they may be usurped and heretical, opposing the Sacred Mother, the Church of Rome.
I do renounce and disown any allegiance as due to any Protestant king, prince, or state, or obedience to any of their inferior officers. I do further declare the doctrine of the Church of England, of the Calvinist, Huguenots, and other Protestants, to be damnable and those to be damned who will not forsake the same.
I do further declare that I will help, assist, and advise, all or any of his Holiness' agents, in any place wherever I shall be, and to do my utmost to extirpate the Protestant doctrine and to destroy all their pretended power, regal or otherwise. I do further promise and declare that, notwithstanding, I may be permitted by dispensation to assume any heretical religion for the propagation of the Mother Church's interest, to keep secret and private all her agents' counsels as they entrust to me, and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing, or circumstances whatsoever, but to execute all which shall be proposed given in charge, discovered unto me by you my most Reverend Lord and Bishop." (By John Lyons, ex-catholic priest in a tract circulated in Glenside, Pa.)
NOTE: The priest says... "the Pope is Christ's vicar-general" The title "Vicar of Christ" comes from the title "Vicarius Christi", which was used by Emperor Constantine when he hooked up with the Church of Rome. "Vicarius" is translated into English as "vicar" which means "in place of" or "another". Thus..."another Christ". Pope Innocent III (1198-1216) was the first Bishop of Rome to declare himself to be "Vicar of Christ". Pope Nicholas III (1277-1280) went even further and claimed to be "Vicar of God", which would be the same as calling himself "another God" (Vicar of God). The term "antichrist" translated into Greek is actually "vicarius christi", or vicar of Christ.
So, with all that said. With all that PROVEN. Oh, and by the way, tell your Catholic friends it IS documented FACT! The real sad thing is MANY will ignore it! Many will actually choose to never even research that which is EASY to find. They simply choose NOT to know! That is the most severe heart wrenching reality I have learned to live with for these last 15+ years since starting Presents of God ministry. I have actually had loved ones ignore Bible verses I was pointing to IN THEIR OWN BIBLES! They would refuse to even look at the book I opened to, the page I was on, and the verse I was pointing to. I asked them why does your priest say what he says when your own Bible says the exact opposite? Their response? "They must have a reason for doing it!" (%sigh%) Fact is, they do have a reason. :(
I implore any Catholics that are reading this right now. I implore you to investigate all that is written here. I welcome it! I want you to do as I once did as a Catholic. Many years ago a Christian came to me with facts like this. I too ignored them. Then the Lord sent another! Again, I ignored them, then another...another...another. So finally I decided to fight back! I decided to open my Catholic Bible and prove them wrong!
In less than two years. I left the Roman Catholic Church, and openly denounced all that is Catholicism as I would denounce Satan himself. It's THAT blunt. Think about the council of Valencia of 1229 AD. Think about WHY they killed 150 MILLION Christians that refused to denounce the Jesus of the Bible for the Jesus of Rome. Can you honestly come up with any other reason as to why the Church forbid the Bible? And not only forbid it, but KILLED those that embraced it? Use common sense now. It's time to be honest with yourself. There is little time left to mull this one over!

-THE BIG QUESTION
School activities that now eat up Saturdays for local students and families are nibbling away at Sundays as well. Should the Public Schools of Petoskey halt school-sanctioned activities on Sunday, to keep activity from gobbling up the SEVENTH DAY also ? Should Petoskey Schools shut the door on school-sanctioned activities taking place on Sundays? Lots of pros and cons are expected on that question, and the school district wants to hear them at its Thursday Oct 16, meeting of the Petoskey Board of Education. If there's a groundswell of support for naming Sunday off-limits for school activities, then Sunday "family day" could go into effect at the start of the 2001 school year. -News Review 2000

TORONTO, Nov. 2 (LSN.ca) - LifeSite has learned that an Oct. 27 concert at St. Basil's Catholic Church in Toronto featured a composition by Gerald Hannon, Canada's leading advocate of "intergenerational sex," or pedophilia. Hannon was part of the choir and he was applauded separately after the piece by the musicians and those in attendance.
...LifeSite interviewed Hannon to confirm that he is indeed the same Gerald Hannon known for promoting pedophilia. Hannon told LifeSite that he is the infamous "prostitute professor," referring to the fact that he is the former Ryerson University professor, who, in the midst of a controversy over his support for pedophilia, revealed he was moonlighting as a homosexual prostitute. In 1996, Ryerson offered Hannon an undisclosed cash settlement for a guarantee that he would leave the university and not apply for his position again.
Hannon is one of Canada's most outspoken defenders of pedophilia. In Dec. 1977 he published an article, entitled "Men Loving Boys Loving Men," wherein he discussed favourably and explicitly homosexual sex acts with boys as young as seven years of age. The article led to criminal charges, but Hannon was acquitted.
Hannon is also known for his Mar. 11, 1995 Globe and Mail article which ridiculed then-London, Ont. police chief Julian Fantino's pedophilia investigation, Project Guardian. Fantino, now police chief in Toronto, denounced the article to the Ontario Press Council as "a distorted, self-serving and dishonest portrayal of the investigation."
In a CTV Canada AM interview in January 1999 Hannon defended child pornography. Asked on the show: "So, you mean if there was a guardian on the set of a pornography movie involving eight-year-olds that would make it okay?", Hannon responded: "It might well make it okay. We have guardians on the set for movies in which all sorts of violent things happen and children are involved in the acting. It's just an acting job." When asked, "is there such a thing as acceptable child porn?", he responded, "I think so. It's another kind of artistic expression."
The next Kammermusik concert will take place at St. Basil's Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m.

John Paul II doesn't seem to care about what his church is up to it seems. And why should he? His calling is to spread the religion of Babylon on a global scale. And molestation of little boys IS a major ritual embraced by this church. By the way, want TONS more evidence on this particular problem of the Vatican?

It's difficult to say which seems more unlikely: Aerosmith's bad-boy lead singer reciting a prayer written by the Pope, or a credit card stamped with the Vatican's "brand name." Both projects are the brainchild of Rich Garson, whose fledgling company MAXX International Inc. (MXII.OB), aims to strike gold in what he calls the "spirituality marketplace" -- for products and services that fulfill spiritual longings that transcend the lines of organized religion. "It's not about Catholicism, it's about spirituality," said Garson, who was brought up in the Jewish faith. "This Pope knows no spiritual boundaries."
In the brave new world of "spiritual marketing," a veteran rocker like Steve Tyler finds common ground with John Paul II, and imagery by Michelangelo from the Vatican's collection looks smart on a piece of plastic as the logo of the New York Yankees baseball team.
In a CD to be released later this year, the Aerosmith lead singer will join a bevy of other celebrities in reciting verses written by the Pope, someone not normally associated with the pop icons of the world. The CD, called World Voice 2000, will feature everyone from teen sensations Britney Spears and 'N Sync to spiritual guru deepak Chopra and others. ...Garson, 39, who once handled media promotions for Michael Jackson, denies the CD and the Vatican cards are designed solely as money makers, and insists the main motive behind them is a desire to spread the Pope's message. "The project is bigger than us," he said. ...Armed with the rights to the Pope's private prayers, Garson spent the better part of the year making the CD, following celebrities such as Celine Dion to Florida and Spears to Las Vegas to record them reading the Pope's words. ...The Vatican earns a tidy 12.5 percent royalty on the CD and book deals, and as well as a percentage on the card deal, a portion of which will be channeled into its orphanages, Garson said.

The Holy See [Vatican web site]
THE Pope, whose album Abba Pater released last year has sold more than a million copies, will soon be back in the charts: the pop stars Britney Spears and Ricky Martin are planning a new CD of his prayers. The collection, which could be in the shops by September, is also expected to feature the voices of Celine Dion, the Canadian singer known for her theme song for the film Titanic, and the pop band N Sync. The project has been masterminded by an American producer, Rick Garson, who says it would give hope to the young.
Last year the Pontiff had an audience with the Irish stars Bono and Bob Geldof, and three years ago he attended a pop concert in Bologna with Bob Dylan. He even based his Bologna homily on Dylan's hit, Blowin' in the Wind.
When two years ago, Italian television marked the 20th anniversary of his papacy, he surprised presenters by phoning in to thank them on air. Last year, with his blessing, teams of priests and nuns took part in a fashion show in Rome and sang pop songs in a television karaoke show featuring risque jokes and scantily clad girls.
From rock concerts with child molesters to rock concerts with openly demonic sex crazed teen idols, to karaoke with foul jokes and sluts? Is the Pope confused about WHICH Rock Jesus said He will build His church upon? I thought the basic LIE of the vatican is that Jesus said Peter was the "rock" that He would build His church on? Now it appears the REAL god of the Vatican is stepping forth eh? Does the Vatican realize that the Word of God identifies Satan as the former angel called "Lucifer" who actually had musical instruments created IN his body? Does the Vatican realzie that Satan himself is the angel of music as well as false light? Obviously not....or wait a minute! Didn't Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo step forward at the Fatima 2000 congress to declare that SATANISM WAS DISCOVERED IN THE VATICAN?
Excuse me... John Paul II... It is NOT upon "this rock" Jesus will build His church!!!
Politicians to Get Their Own Patron Saint
Alton, former Italian President Francesco Cossiga and Vatican officials called the news conference to explain why the Pope will sign a proclamation on October 31 making More ``patron of statesmen and politicians.'' More, one of England's greatest statesmen, was beheaded in 1535 for refusing to recognize King Henry VIII's supremacy in spiritual matters.
Asked if he believed all politicians would welcome More, who died for his beliefs, as a patron in heaven, Cossiga said:
``Some politicians may be afraid of having St Thomas More as their example because following him may mean following him all the way.''
For those politicians, it seems, heaven can wait.
Most politicians are graphic proof that yes, you can be employed to LIE. And now they have a SAINT? Fitting, only a church governed by the "Father of lies' could actually put forth such recognition. If the shoe fits...?
Vatican Exorcism Fails
September 12, 2000 08:12 CDT
A British newspaper has reported an unusual encounter with the devil in the Vatican, with Pope Paul II, himself, attempting an exorcism of a possessed young woman.
The Telegraph reported "the Pope carried out an impromptu exorcism on a teenage girl after she began screaming insults in a cavernous voice during an audience in the Vatican City. Despite the Pope's efforts and those of his chief 'Satan-buster,' Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the girl remained possessed. The Devil's voice sneeringly laughed from within her at the Pope's failed attempt to drive him away," said the British news organization. -Staff Writer Sally Suddock
Acts 19:13-16, "Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded."
Catholic Priest Arrested In Clinic Attack
October 1, 2000 11:15 am EST
ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS SEPT. 30, 2000 (CBS News) - Police say a Catholic priest smashed his car into an abortion clinic Saturday morning, then chopped at the building with an ax until the owner fired two shotgun blasts to stop him. The clinic was not open and nobody was injured in the attack, which came just two days after federal approval of the abortion pill RU-486. The man drove through a door at the Abortion Access Northern Illinois Women's Center around 8:15 a.m. He was swinging an ax when the clinic's owner fired a 12-gauge shotgun twice. He did not hit the man. The Rev. John Earl, 32, was arrested and charged with burglary and felony criminal damage to property, said Deputy Police Chief Dominic Lasparro. Earl was being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
"I'm not surprised that something happened on the heels of the RU-486 announcement," he said. "But this is a little more violent than we were expecting."
That's all we need eh? A Catholic priest who has NOT the "bridal of the Spirit" upon him so as to prevent him from doing that which Hell would desire. I wonder how many more people have made the decision in their hearts that "all Christians are crazy! Look at how their leaders evangelize!" Ya think this "reaction" is this planned for a reason?
"... all the Governments of the world as well as all the churches of the world will join together under Papal rule" -Testimonys p 182
"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast." -Revelation 13:3,
