As a career journalist, I was trained starting in high school to be consumed with news, but I don’t have anything on my mom anymore! She listens to either cable TV news (mostly Fox) or radio talk-show commentators almost anytime she’s in the house. Glenn Beck, O’Reilly, Hannity—the string of controversy-stirring personalities never ends. She says a favorite of hers because he’s so intelligent is Charles Krauthammer.

Shortly after I arrived home here in Akron for my step-dad’s funeral held a week ago, a story I originally thought would get played up BIG—but unbelievably only got a momentary “blip” of coverage—was the Vatican’s announcement it gathered a team of “astrobiology experts” for a five-day conference “to study the possibility of extraterrestrial alien life and its implication for the Catholic Church.”

How much KOOKIER can the Church get and still be treated as if it’s a legitimate God-sponsored Christian institution?!!!

When are the men and women at the highest levels of our American political system who are avid Catholics ever going to be called to answer any of this absolute wackiness their “faith” endorses? The answer, of course, is NEVER!

One of the things that never stops boggling me—especially as someone who has had several close friends who are life-long practicing Catholics—is how anyone with a genuine belief in Jesus Christ and the God of the Bible can keep on reconciling it all. I mean, when do you finally put aside the loyalties/prejudices of your family heritage and realize the obvious satanic evil you are actively participating in?!! Surely the friendships and camaraderie are not worth it when you look at the damage to your eternal soul?!

According to an Associated Press wire story from Nov. 10, “Thirty scientists, including non-Catholics, from the U.S., France, Britain, Switzerland, Italy and Chile attended the conference, called to explore among other issues ‘whether sentient life forms exist on other worlds.’

“Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, an astronomer and director of the Vatican Observatory, set the stage for the conference a year ago when he discussed the possibility of alien life in an interview given prominence in the Vatican's daily newspaper.

“Today top clergy, including Funes, openly endorse scientific ideas like the Big Bang theory as a reasonable explanation for the creation of the universe. The theory says the universe began billions of years ago in the explosion of a single, super-dense point that contained all matter.

“Earlier this year, the Vatican also sponsored a conference on evolution to mark the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's ‘The Origin of Species.’

“The event snubbed proponents of alternative theories, like creationism and intelligent design, which see a higher being rather than the undirected process of natural selection behind the evolution of species.”

As I frequently point out on this site, the Catholic Church represents the present-day manifestation of organized Baal worship, the ancient religion of the devil’s dating from Babel (Genesis 11) that will be one-day be imposed upon the entire world by his future manifestation in the person of the Antichrist.

People “in the know” KNOW this already and that’s why the truth of Roman Catholicism consistently gets swept under the carpet by today’s newsmakers and news-tellers alike! It’s all about propelling forward—either ignorantly or purposefully—the Antichrist agenda on the world stage.

How many people are aware, for one easy little example, that the Greek two Euro coin depicts a woman riding a beast (Rev. 17:3) ?! Look at any Euro coin and you’ll see a distinct 666 on the back, blazoned across Europe.

As bestseller prophecy author Dave Hunt notes in his book, A Woman Rides the Beast: The Roman Catholic Church and the Last Days, “The Tower of Babel fills the official poster for the 12-nation United Europe. Circling above the unfinished tower are 12 stars. Unlike those on the American flag, however, these are upside down, thus forming the pentagram of classic occultism. The pentagram, with its two ‘horns’ pointing upward and its ‘beard’ downward, is also known as the Goat of Mendes, or Baphomet, a symbol of Satan.”

In his chapter entitled Apostasy and Ecumenism, Hunt writes, “Catholicism has become the ecumenical leader in a move to unite not only the ‘separated brethren’ of Protestantism but all of the world’s religions in a new world church . . .

“One finds every shade of New Age, occult, and mystical belief inside the Roman Catholic Church itself . . . One of John Paul II’s most amazing feats was the gathering at Assisi, Italy, in 1986 of 130 leaders of the world’s 12 major religions to pray for peace.  Praying together were snake worshippers, fire worshippers, spiritists, animists, North American witch doctors, Buddhists, Muslims, and Hindus, as well as ‘Christians’ and Catholics. The pope declared that all were ‘praying to the same God.’ On that occasion the pope allowed his good friend the Dalai Lama to replace the cross with Buddha on the altar of St. Peter’s church in Assisi and for him and his monks to perform their Buddhist worship there . . .

“The two most urgent causes, which will play an important part in uniting the world, are ecology and peace. It is increasingly believed that ‘peace’ will be achieved by prayer to some higher power, and ‘any god will do,’ as Masonry says . . .

“It is amazing to what extent those who call themselves Christians are able to justify, for the cause of peace and ecological wholeness, participation in religious practices with those of all religions.”
