I don’t know about you, but I’m not having an indeterminately-frocked dude, while smiling some sweet platitudes, tell me what to believe.
Nope. No way in Hades.
If I see that clown, I’m running the proverbial mile — and so should you. He is an anachronism.
The institution of Catholicism is a false religion: cathedrals built atop cemeteries; upside down crosses (and claiming it’s because Peter was crucified that way); praying over the bones of dead pontiffs; wearing that silly miter that is really Dagon‘s head. Too much Babylonian corruption in that for me. Too mystical. Too many atrocities through the Middle Ages, and then some. Corruption. Pedophilia. Money laundering … and on and on.
Jesus himself said: “By their fruits you shall know them”. The fruit of the Catholic Church is full of worms.
You can’t undo 2,000 years of persecution with a Johnny-come-lately “smiling assassin” — a Jesuit at that.
Jesus said that many would come in His name. He warned to watch that we are not deceived by wolves in sheep’s clothing. And that’s one fancy clown right there.
Too political: he and all his predecessors prance around the world meeting with all the leaders. I don’t want any part of them.
