Archbishop of Canterbury wants divorce of church and state
AFP[ TUESDAY, DECEMBER 03, 2002 08:31:32 AM ]

"Disestablishment would also allow a British monarch to convert to Catholicism or marry a Catholic. Heir to the throne Prince Charles would also be able to marry his long-term companion and fellow divorcee Camilla Parker-Bowles in church."

True Catholicism always runs on one advantage. SIN. The sins of Royalty in England seek to be married in church, so they seek to remove the Queen's power as head of the church. Fact is, Rome TRUE agenda is unveiled. If the Queen is no longer head of the church, then that means THE POPE IS. And sin reigns supreme once again in England. PLUS, the one world church just grew by leaps and bounds in one fell swoop making the enforcement of the mark of the beats that much easier.


 Bankruptcy talk stirs Boston Catholics
Monday, December 2, 2002 Posted: 10:40 PM EST (0340 GMT)

BOSTON, Massachusetts (CNN) -- A newspaper report that the Boston Catholic Archdiocese is considering filing bankruptcy rather than face years of costly legal battles over hundreds of claims that priests sexually abused children has sparked furor among parishioners and litigants.

Not only does this church molest and terroize the lives of thousands of innocent little boys. They are now going to run off and file bankruptcy so as to prevent the church that molests children to be able to stay in the business of housing pedophiles. We do know what the Vatican did with the idea of "zero tolerance" right? That means, they will STILL house pedophiles for as long as they please!


Priest, religious educator use Jesus action figure to teach

BALTIMORE (CNS) -- Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Jesus. Yes, the man who fed the hungry, comforted the sick and died for our sins is now a full-fledged action figure retailing for just under $6. With four wheels under his sandals, Jesus is truly a holy roller. In fact, the 4-inch-tall plastic, robed figure even has rotating arms. "In my common English, the Jesus action figures are a hoot," said Father Eugene Nickol, pastor of Holy Trinity in Glen Burnie, near Baltimore. "I thought they had a certain value to them because kids use action figures anyway and if you want to teach kids about how special Jesus was, why not use an action figure?" Father Nickol told The Catholic Review, newspaper of the Baltimore Archdiocese.

There are none so blind as those who refuse to see. The sad thing is, those under this church truly see nothing wrong with mocking the Lord Jesus Christ in this way. PLUS, the priest is no doubt making a pretty penny on this venture as well.

 Iraq's Christians Hope Saint's Relics Will Bring Peace

By Bassem Mroue
Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Hundreds of Christians held a mass to celebrate the arrival of a French saint's relics to Iraq and said they hope the remains will ensure peace in the country.

The relics of Saint Therese arrived by plane from Lebanon on Wednesday, after touring that Arab nation for 77 days. The arrival coincided with a call by Iraqi Christians for the country's churches to hold a special prayer for peace Friday.

Dozens of people, many with their children, arrived at St. Joseph's Chaldean Catholic Cathedral in Baghdad before the mass to see the relics inside a brown box placed in front of the altar.

Saint Therese was a Catholic nun who lived in the Carmel convent in Lisieux, about 125 miles northwest of Paris, and died at 24 in 1897. She was canonized in 1925 by Pope Pius VI.

True Christians do NOT worship the bones, clothing, or relics of dead humans. This is open evidence that even the media preaches the doctrines of Rome.

Exodus 20:4-6, "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing 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 the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments."

By the way, that the commandments the Roman Catholic church REMOVED from their version fo the Ten Commandments.


Holy Cross priest has 'magical' way about him

ROLLING PRAIRIE, Ind. (CNS) -- Holy Cross Father James Blantz believes in the biblical proverb that "a merry heart makes for good medicine." For nearly four decades he has been spreading merriment through magic. At 70, Father Blantz has been performing magic for 39 of his 43 years in the priesthood. Truly an international performer, he has taken his magic to several continents and to audiences of movie stars and professional athletes. He also has performed in hospitals and in African missions. "There's enough sadness in the world. I try to spend some time with people and bring them some joy," Father Blantz told the Northwest Indiana Catholic, newspaper of the Gary Diocese.

Using the Satanic craft of MAGIC to spread joy? Satan has got to be one happy camper now!


 Salvation of God Explains Interreligious Dialogue, Says Pope

Comments on Psalm 86(87) at General Audience

VATICAN CITY, NOV. 13, 2002 (Zenit.org).- The salvation of God proclaimed in the Bible is the final goal of every man, and hence it explains interreligious dialogue, says John Paul II.

Moreover, in "Lumen Gentium," No. 2, Vatican Council II presents the universal Church as the place that gathers "all the righteous, beginning with Adam, and the righteous Abel, to the last elect," the Pope said. It will have "its glorious fulfillment at the end of time," he added.

The pope says unity, and the Lord says division.

Luke 12:51, "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:"

The Pope is a liar.


 Catholics need to think more about Mass as sacrifice, liturgist says

INDIANAPOLIS (CNS) -- Understanding the Mass as a sacrifice is something Catholics need to think about more often, according to Capuchin Father Edward Foley, professor of liturgy and music and chair of the department of word and worship at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. He said that Catholics, because of a lack of good theology regarding the Mass, are in great danger of viewing it only as a Communion service. "Many leaders of our eucharistic assemblies can and do celebrate the Mass as though it were a Communion service," he said. Father Foley addressed the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions' annual meeting and conference Oct. 18 in Indianapolis. While he called the reception of Communion "one of the most intimate religious experiences available to the followers of Christ," he added that Communion is endowed with a special property within the Mass. "One of the key fruits of the Mass, which I do not believe is a key fruit of Communion alone, is the renewal of the call to mission," he said.

Hebrews 7:27, "Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself."

According to the trustworthy Word of God, the Catholic mass is a sham!


 Catholic Church Is FBI Veteran's New Boss
Office Charged With Protecting Children

By Alan Cooperman

Friday, November 8, 2002; Page A02

The highest-ranking woman in the FBI was named yesterday to head a new office for child protection in the Roman Catholic Church, part of the effort by U.S. bishops to restore confidence in the church after months of scandal over sexual abuse by priests.

Kathleen L. McChesney, a veteran of 24 years in the FBI and its No. 3 official, is leaving the bureau to become the full-time director of the church's Office for Child and Youth Protection, headquartered in Washington. An arm of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the new office is charged with ensuring the safety of children and teenagers in Catholic churches, schools and youth groups across the country.

Pretty ridiculous eh? A "so called" Christian church has to be watched by an official government agency with straight ties to the FBI to prevent them from molesting little boys? And all the Catholcis still believe the lies of their priests when they say this happens in ALL churches?

 Priest Sentenced to Prison for Making Drugs, Removed From Duties
MIRANDA LEITSINGER Associated Press Writer
The Associated Press

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison for making the so-called "date-rape" drug and has been removed from all priestly duties.

The Rev. Jeffery Windy and his friend Timothy O'Brien were weightlifters who initially took the drug to bulk up and became addicted, said O'Brien, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

GHB is known as the "date-rape drug" because it has been used to incapacitate people, leaving them vulnerable to sexual assault. It also has been used by bodybuilders as an athletic enhancer.

This is the same drug criminals use to cause woman to "allow" them to rape them without remembering. I wonder... how many children suffered at the hands of this priest?


 The Vatican's Day Of Shame
By Paul Steidler and Mark Serrano
The Washington Times
10-24-2

In its Oct. 18 official rejection of the U.S. Bishops' proposals pertaining to sexual abuse, Vatican bureaucrats sent a disturbing message to Catholics everywhere: Child sexual abuse is no big deal. By obfuscating and minimizing the rape and sodomy of Catholic school children and other faithful, the Vatican now seeks to delay, and ultimately kill, any meaningful reforms that would protect American children.

...The time is now for Catholics - whose outrage about these crimes and concern for victims caused the bishops to act in the first place - to redraw a line in the sand. The morally clear and strong message they sent earlier this year to the American Bishops and Vatican bureaucrats must be repeated: "Enough is enough."

There must be no compromise when it comes to protecting children. Christ himself would demand this. Were he physically in Rome today he would throw the bureaucrats out of the Vatican, much as he threw the money-changers out of the temple.

Paul Steidler and Mark Serrano are members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests ( www.survivorsnetwork.org ).

Amen!


 Temples Packed to See 'Miracle' Statues

Sep 23, 10:00 am ET

AHMEDABAD, India (Reuters) - Thousands of Hindu devotees flocked to temples in western India after rumors spread of water flowing from holy phallic symbols believed to represent the Hindu god of destruction, police said Monday.

Police across Gujarat state struggled to keep order as crowds jostled to get a glimpse of a "Shiva Linga," worshipped by Hindus as a symbol of the Hindu god Lord Shiva.

"Everyone was rushing to the nearest Shiva temple. But I couldn't see a thing except that I sprained my neck," said Prakash Dave, a resident of Gujarat's largest city Ahmedabad.

Some devotees said they had also heard about the appearance of the Hindu symbol "Om," meaning "cosmic force," on top of carved, stone linga statues.

A senior police official in Ahmedabad said the whole thing was "pure mass hysteria." The rush to see the statues began late Sunday but appeared to have died down Monday, police said.

Hindus make up nearly 90 percent of Gujarat's 50 million people. The state was racked earlier this year by Hindu-Muslim violence in which more than 1,000 people, most of them Muslims, were killed.

It's now official. There are two unbiblical churches with statues doing "miracles." The Hindu church, and the Roman Catholic church.


 Mother Teresa Moving Closer to Sainthood
Sep 23, 11:52 am ET

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who dedicated her life to helping people she called "the poorest of the poor," may be beatified as early as next year, marking the final step before sainthood, Vatican sources said on Monday.

Keep in mind, this is the same "saint" that asked for a demonic exorcism on her death bed. And this is the same "saint" that questioned the diety of Christ. (see next two articles)


Archbishop: Mother Teresa Had 'Evil Spirit' Expelled
The Associated Press C A L C U T T A, India, Sept. 6

Mother Teresa had an exorcism performed on her while she was hospitalized in 1997, the Archbishop of Calcutta said Wednesday. The disclosure by Archbishop Henry D'Souza came as hundreds of people in this eastern Indian city paid homage to the renowned caregiver on the fourth anniversary of her death. But the Rev. Richard McBrien, a Notre Dame theology professor, called the exorcism and the archbishop's explanation for it "bizarre." Not Expected to Affect Sainthood Bid

 Does God really exist? The agony of Teresa
By Bruce Johnston and Brigid Delaney
November 30 2002

Mother Teresa, put on the fast-track to sainthood by the Pope after her death five years ago, was tormented by a crisis of belief for 50 years, her writings reveal. Her letters and diaries present a completely different picture of the nun and Nobel peace laureate from her public image as a woman confident of her faith. It is being said in Rome that biographies will have to be rewritten to take the revelation into account. The previously unpublished material is to be brought out as a volume in Italy. It was collected by Roman Catholic authorities in Calcutta after her death, aged 87.

Il Segreto di Madre Teresa (Mother Teresa's Secret) will be published in December. -The Telegraph, London


 Pope Stresses Need to Pray for Souls in Purgatory
Message to Minim Sisters of Our Lady of Suffrage

VATICAN CITY, SEPT. 17, 2002
(Zenit.org).- John Paul II wrote a message to encourage prayer for the souls in purgatory, stressing the special need that the deceased have.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, in Nos. 1030 and 1031, says, in part: "All who die in God's grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven. The Church gives the name Purgatory to this final purification of the elect."

I have listed below between the "quotation marks" ALL the Bible verses both Old and New Testament underlined that speak of the Catholic doctrine of Purgatory.

"                              "

You are not seeing things. There are NONE in the Bible. Not one! Not even a hint! Plain and simple... it's a LIE.

 Pope: Cross Should Be Displayed in All Schools, Hospitals

The Associated Press

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (AP) - The image of the cross should be placed in schools, hospitals and homes to help guard against increasing "secularization," Pope John Paul II said Sunday.

In his weekly appearance to pilgrims and tourists at his summer retreat, the pope said the principle symbol of Christianity is the image of Jesus dying on the cross.

"In the process of secularization, which distinguishes a great part of the contemporary world, it is all the more important that the faithful fix their gaze on this central sign of the Revelation," he said.

The pope also offered special prayers for the sick and suffering, for "innocent victims of injustice and violence," and for Christians persecuted because of their faith. AP-ES-09-15-02 1618EDT

The symbol of Christianity is NOT Jesus DYING on the cross. It is Him ARISING from the garve! Fact is, the cross if a symbol of DEATH! The Pagans would offer sacrifice to their Sun God Baal on crosses. The cross is actually the Pagan's image of Baal. Look at the pics I have in my "Whore of Babylon" Flash animation and see the ancient carvings of the Pagans. Notice the "PLUS SIGN" cross in the sky? That depicts BAAL! Now, look at the clothing of the Pope, and all the priests? See all those PLUS SIGNS on their bodies? Now look around the church... see them?


 NEW CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL FEATURES IDOLATROUS SYMBOLS.
Friday Church News

Notes, September 6, 2002 (David W. Cloud, Fundamental Baptist Information  Service, P.O. Box 610368, Port Huron, MI 48061-0368,
fbns@wayoflife.org) -  The new Roman Catholic cathedral in Los Angeles features 25-ton bronze  doors bearing symbols of "deities from around the world." The September 2  dedication of the $195 million cathedral featured a procession of 565  priests, bishops, archbishops, and cardinals. The Catholic Church in  Kathmandu, Nepal, also features Hindu-like images and statues, which I  observed on a visit earlier this year.

CAN YOU VERIFY THIS DOCUMENT FOR ME?
I AM LOOKING FOR THE ORIGINAL SOURCES ON IT

I already have documented evidence that the Vatican is planning on rewriting the Bible as is stated in this document. I also need proof that these "16 Laws" designed to ENFORCE THE MARK OF THE BEAST are authentic.
