Default Pope Denounced as Antichrist

Pope denounced as 'anti-Christ' in radio fire and brimstone row


By John Cooney
Wednesday January 23 2008

A new Messiah has risen to save the Protestant people of Ulster from the heretical snares of Rome and to keep the Pope, "the anti-Christ", out of the North.

An unholy row on yesterday's 'Joe Duffy show' began innocently enough, when the chief aide to Nigel Dodds, the North's Enterprise Minister, voiced his objections to the sale of Catholic rosary beads inside St Patrick's Cathedral, in Dublin.

Wallace Thompson challenged the Anglican Dean of St Patrick's, Dr Robert MacCarthy, for selling rosaries not sanctioned in Holy Scripture, in the cathedral gift shop.

The Dean explained that the beads were sold because the shop attracted visitors of all denominations, and revenue from the sales helped finance the cathedral's upkeep.

During an hour-long phone-in, Mr Thompson castigated these misguided papists for adhering to a corrupt church that demanded Protestant partners in a mixed marriage to surrender to their creed.

The temperature became as hot as the fires of hell when Mr Thompson pleaded with Irish Catholics to abandon their idolatrous prayer to the Virgin Mary.

Then Mr Thompson, speaking in a personal capacity, escalated his war of religions when he denounced the Pope as the anti-Christ and announced he would oppose plans to bring Benedict to the North.

"The Pope is the anti-Christ ... a lot of Protestants probably might not hold (that view) but it is still enshrined in the standards," he said.

"It is a strong statement to make, but in expressing those views I am not conflicting with the main teachings of the main churches," Mr Thompson thundered.

Oppose

The 54-year-old married father-of-three, who is a regular preacher across the North, and a member of the Independent Orange, went on to warn that true Protestants would totally oppose a papal visit.

SDLP Assembly member Dolores Kelly said Mr Thompson's fundamentalist language was a throwback to the North's troubled past.

"I don't think he has any right to deprive the people of the north, and in particular the Catholic population,of an opportunity to greet and meet their spiritual leader," she said.

Sinn Fein Assembly group leader, John O'Dowd, described Mr Thompson's comments as "deeply insulting to many, many people across this island".

Last night, a worldly wise DUP official was at pains to emphasise that Mr Thompson was not speaking in a political capacity.

Good! Maybe being insulted will cause them to search the Scriptures and see that Catholicism is not found in there - except in the book of Revelation as the religion of the Antichrist, controlling the world from the city built on seven hills (Rome). Then challenge them to see what the Bible - not their religious traditions - teaches about how to be saved and how to live a life pleasing to the Lord.

you think they really care jerry.. when it comes down to it, ireland was pagan when the catholics got there, they adapted quite easilyto catholicism sincecatholicism is pagan to begin with, then they added celt pagan traditions to roman catholicism, and boom, you have a whole new type of paganism. them pagans beat them prods in the 90's.. they wanna be pagan, let em.. God'll cut em down.. i'm all for freedom of religion but at the same time i know roman catholicism will do everything in their power to take over a religiously free area and make it roman catholic.. i'd love to see all of ireland be a free nation, but if that happened then protestantism, and Christianity would both be forbidden on the continent

"vicar of Christ" literally translated means "in place of Christ" the greek word Anti and the Roman word vicar are the same in place of or opposed to. take your pick anyone who would use the Title "Vicar of Christ" minus wel use "anti christ" because it means the same thing.

'Ceasefire undermined'

Israeli officials confirmed the raid, saying that they had intended to make arrests but opened fire when they saw that three of the militants were armed with assault rifles.

They blamed the Islamic Jihad militants for attacks on Israelis.

Palestinian officials from Islamic Jihad and Hamas denounced the operation.

"Islamic Jihad and the other resistance groups have the right to respond in any place to this crime of assassination and all options are open," said Dawud Shihab, an Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza.

"What the enemy has done undermines any talk of a ceasefire," he said.

Earlier on Wednesday, Israeli troops shot dead an Islamic Jihad militant near the northern West Bank town of Tulkarm.

There had been a lull in the Gaza violence over the last few days, with the Israeli military reducing operations in Gaza on Monday following a sharp drop in rocket fire from Palestinian militants.

Egypt has been working to broker an agreement.

On Wednesday, the Palestinian militant group Hamas set out its conditions for a truce, calling for an end to Israeli military operations in Gaza and the re-opening of its borders, in return for halting rocket attacks.

Did you also know that the Latin form of "vicar of Christ" adds up to 666 if you count the letters in it that are also Roman Numerals? Try it. The Latin is

VICARIVS FILII DEI (literally, In the place of the Son of God)

V=5
I=1
C=100
I=1
V=5
I=1
L=50
I=1
I=1
D=500
I=1
________
666

I've heard that this Latin title for the Antichrist is carved on the Pope's throne or ceremonial chair or whatever it is, or the alternative story that it's on his fish-head shaped hat or mitre. Maybe it's on both.

I have read various statements that indicate it is stated on his mitre (hat).

That statement translates as "Vicar of the Son of God", not "Vicar of Christ" though.

I heard a different account of the history of Christianity in Ireland. I think I got it from an online history of Christianity but I'll have to check. This story is that Ireland was one of the very first places in Europe to be Christianized, as early as the 2nd century, before the Catholic church had corrupted the gospel, and that they were a very strong church that sent out missionaries to the mainland, and that apparently this situation prevailed for many centuries until the corrupted Roman church had taken over most of the churches that had been established in Europe, but that even then the Irish church resisted for a long time. When it was finally Romanized, for some reason it stuck harder there than it did in other places. I think I got this from Philip Schaff's History of the Christian Church which is online. All of Europe was pagan before it was transformed by the gospel, Ireland was certainly no worse than any other place.

Ireland was reached by Patrick with the true Gospel - of course, the RC religion later took him as their own and canonized him (made him a "saint"). I have not read a bio of him, but what little bits I have gleaned here and there have been interesting.
