Book of Revelation 17.3-6
Mother Of Harlots And Filth

"The Roman Catholic Church has insisted upon celibacy even though many popes as well as cardinals, bishops, archbishops, monks, and priests throughout history, have repeatedly violated their vows. Not only has celibacy made sinners of the clergy who engage in fornication, but makes harlots out of those with whom they secretly cohabit. History is replete with sayings that mocked the church's false claim to celibacy and revealed the truth: 'Rome has more prostitutes than any other city because she has the most celibates'. An ex-Jesuit (Peter de la Rosa) reported that popes had mistresses of fifteen years of age, were guilty of incest and sexual perversions of every sort, had innumerable children, were murdered in the very act of adultery... Rome is indeed 'the mother of harlots'."

So he carried me away in the spirit in the wilderness; And I saw a woman, sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

And the women was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations, and filthiness of her fornications:

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: And when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Book of Revelation 17:3-6


So he carried me away in the spirit in the wilderness; And I saw a woman, sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Book of Revelation 17:3


There is a very close connection between the woman, city of Rome and the beast; the woman (Pope) sitting upon the scarlet-colored beast (Vatican) with seven heads (Rome). Heathen Rome had a national festival called Septimontium, the feast of the seven-hilled city; and on the imperial coins she is represented as a woman seated on seven hills. The Vatican, the paramount world power and ruling it by the claim of supremacy, is the chief representative of this symbol. The scarlet color of a red and purple garment was, and still is, the favorite color of the clergy — a imperial robe of kingly authority and triumph.

Under Vatican superintendence, the Pope puts forth blasphemous pretensions of godliness worse than in pagan days. In a ceremony called"the adoration"he is placed by the cardinals in God's temple on the altar to sit there, and they kiss his feet.

According to Uriah Smith in The Prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation,"This woman is explicitly called Babylon. Is Rome, then, Babylon, to the exclusion of all other religious bodies? — No, she cannot be, from the fact that she is called the mother of harlots as already noticed, which shows that there are other independent religious organizations that constitute the apostate daughters, and belong to the same great family...

The beast of which the angel here speaks is evidently the scarlet-colored beast. A wild beast, like the one thus introduced, is the symbol of an oppressive and persecuting power. While the Roman power as a nation had a long, interrupted existence, it passed through certain phases during which this symbol would not be applicable to it, and during which time the beast, in such prophecies as the present, might be said not to be, or not to exist. Thus Rome in its pagan form was a persecuting power in its relation to the people of God, during which time it constituted the beast that was. But when the empire was nominally converted to Christianity, there was a transition from paganism to another phase of religion falsely called Christian. During a brief period, while this transition was going on, it lost its ferocious and persecuting character, and then it could be said of the beast that it was not. As time passed, it developed into the papacy, and again assumed its bloodthirsty and oppressive character."1

And the women was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations, and filthiness of her fornications:

Book of Revelation 17:4


Colors of Holy See
These are the colors of the Holy
See, or the administrative arm
of the Vatican. The Pope's aides
wear purple vestments, with
shirt sleeves that are scarlet
from the elbow to the wrist and
purple skull caps , while
Cardinal Bishops wear black and
scarlet. As for the Pontiff, he
generally wears white under
garments with a scarlet cape
when he is there.
The color scarlet was reserved for popes and cardinals. Paul II made it penal for anyone but cardinals to wear hats of scarlet (Roman Ceremonial [3.5.5]). This book was compiled several centuries ago by Marcellus, a Romish archbishop, and dedicated to Leo X. In it are enumerated five different articles of dress of scarlet color. A vest is mentioned studded with pearls. The Pope's miter is of gold and precious stones. These are the very characteristics outwardly which Revelation thrice assigns to the harlot or Babylon. So Joachim an abbot from Calabria, about A.D. 1200, when asked by Richard of England, who had summoned him to Palestine, concerning Antichrist, replied that"he was born long ago at Rome, and is now exalting himself above all that is called God."Roger Hoveden [Annals, 1.2], and elsewhere, wrote,"The harlot arrayed in gold is the Church of Rome."

That harlot, which is the Vatican Church, is described by her attire, profession, and deeds. Her attire, bedecked with jewels and gold, is most glorious, triumphant, rich, gorgeous and indicate enormous wealth. By profession this catholic and apostolical Roman church is the head of the world, the mother of all believers, the faithful interpreter of God and mistress of all churches. For deeds she has in her hand a golden cup full of abominations, a symbol of the false church. The most abominable doctrines and practices are devised to enforce servitude and worship, with the utmost pomp and magnificence, the homage due to the Creator.

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Book of Revelation 17:5


Mystery is at the very heart of Roman Catholicism, for the words"Mysterium fide"are pronounced at the alleged transformation of the bread and wine into the literal body and blood of Christ to the enigmatic apparitions of Mary around the world. Every sacrament, from baptism to purgatory release, manifests the mysterious power which the faithful must believe the priests wield, but for which there is no visible evidence.Âa "Mystery"implies a spiritual fact heretofore hidden, and incapable of discovery by mere reason, but now revealed. Thus the title which told who she was and explained her character is Mystery, making pretensions that the world cannot understand, deceiving with the title of religion. So God teaches that this beast is much increased in impiety and injustice and does in this last age, triumph in both these more insolently and proudly then ever before.

It was customary in Rome of shamelessly bold harlots to hang out signs, with their names, that all might know what they were. She is named from her infamous way and practice; not only is the Vatican a harlot, but a mother of harlots, breeding up harlots, and nursing and training them up to idolatry, and all sorts of lewdness and wickedness — the parent Church and nurse of all false religion and filthy conversation. She is the mother of other false churches which have followed her ways. Benedict XIII, in his indiction for a jubilee, A.D. 1725, called Rome"the mother of all believers, and the mistress of all churches"i.e., harlots like herself. The correspondence of syllables and accents in Greek is striking;"He porne kai to therion; He numphe kai to arnion.""The whore and the beast; the Bride and the Lamb."Âa 

The fact that uniform use is used to describe a falling away from God shows that the Scarlet Harlot is the symbol of a faithless, apostate church."There are only three places in the whole Bible where the figure is applied to heathen cities or nations; twice to Tyre, and once to Nineveh."[Williams]

"The Roman Catholic Church has insisted upon celibacy even though many popes as well as cardinals, bishops, archbishops, monks, and priests throughout history, have repeatedly violated their vows. Not only has celibacy made sinners of the clergy who engage in fornication, but makes harlots out of those with whom they secretly cohabit. History is replete with sayings that mocked the church's false claim to celibacy and revealed the truth: 'Rome has more prostitutes than any other city because she has the most celibates'. An ex-Jesuit (Peter de la Rosa) reported that popes had mistresses of fifteen years of age, were guilty of incest and sexual perversions of every sort, had innumerable children, were murdered in the very act of adultery... Rome is indeed 'the mother of harlots'."2

Thus the Vatican is without doubt the mother of harlots - the parent, ringleader, patroness, mother of many daughters, that loosely copy after her abominations of every kind, spiritual and fleshly. In this respect she is indeed catholic or universal."The Church has gained outward recognition by leaning on the world power which in its turn uses the Church for its own objects; such is the picture here of Christendom ripe for judgment"[Auberlen].Âa Not merely Rome, but Christendom as a whole has become a harlot. If Rome were the only seat of Babylon, much of the spiritual profit of Revelation would be lost to us; but the harlot"sitteth upon many waters", and"all nations have drunk of the wine of her fornication".

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: And when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Book of Revelation 17:6


And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints. This implies that she had been a great persecutor and had slain multitudes of the people of God. There is only one body claiming to be the Christian Church to whom this will apply. There have been some harlot daughters of the harlot mother who have also engaged in persecution, but there is only one self-styled Christian body on the earth of whom it can be said she"was drunk with the blood of the saints"— the Vatican!

So that Rome may well be called,"The slaughter - house of the martyrs."She has shed horrific amounts of innocent Christian blood in every age and drank their blood with such greediness that she intoxicated herself with it. She satiated herself with the blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus and it was so pleasant to her that she could not tell when she had had enough of it: she was satiated, but never satisfied.Âa 

The power that for so many centuries maintained despotic sway over the monarchs of Christendom is Rome. The purple and scarlet color, the gold and precious stones and pearls, vividly picture the magnificence and more than kingly pomp affected by the haughty see of Rome. And no other power could be so truly declared"drunken with the blood of the saints"as that church which has so cruelly persecuted the followers of Christ. The Vatican is also charged with the sin of unlawful connection with"the kings of the earth."It was by departure from the Lord, and Rome, corrupting herself in like manner by seeking the support of worldly powers, receives a like condemnation.

"The primary purpose of these studies on the book of the Revelation which, alas, is a closed book to many ministers, is to show you the incredible accuracy and truth of this prophecy; proving that it is none other than the Word of the living God Himself.

We are living in days of great international tension and severe crisis. Days that are filled with fear and insecurity at the things that are happening all around us. During this past thirty years the world has shrunk, as it were, into a global village. News and events travel extremely fast while years ago it literally took weeks and months to tell people what actually happened.

The words of the Lord Jesus are coming to pass when He said in Luke chapter 21 verses 25 to 27, And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. But look at this He continues, And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

I believe, friend, with all my heart, that we are living right in the centre of those days the Lord Jesus spoke about; the second coming of Christ has become to me personally a living hope and a living reality. In fact, I am convinced it is the only hope for the church, His blood washed people, and the only hope for this planet's survival before it explodes, and burns itself into a floating cinder drifting aimlessly into outer space. The Lord Jesus said in the Bible that He would come the second time, and I believe it.

So let's again, friend, look at the things He has revealed in this book, and see how every word He has shown, and spoken has come to pass, and has never fallen to the ground.

To begin my introduction to this great chapter, Revelation chapter 17. Let me repeat the true title of the book of Revelation is: The Revelation of Jesus Christ. The word 'revelation' here means apocalypses, which means the unveiling - the laying bare. The unveiling of mysteries which God alone knows. But every Bible student knows, that in the original manuscripts of the scriptures there were no chapter divisions. They were put in by the translators at a later date. And while they are a great convenience, there are occasions where they make breaks in the sequence which are anything but helpful.

The chapter with which we are dealing with is an obvious example: for it is really the story of chapter 16. It is still the story of things still happening under the judgements of the seven vials of wrath. Then it goes into detail to identify the system upon which the wrath of God is being poured. John indeed says here that the vision of the scarlet woman is given to him by one of the angels who poured out the vials.

Now notice verse 1, the angel is delegated to reveal to John important characteristics of identification. Not just for his personal enlightenment because the events were still far into the future, but for our enlightenment who live in the age of their fulfilment. John could not possible know what these things meant. It was enough for him to faithfully record what he saw. But I say to you friend, who live in the very end of this age, with all the historic details of the last 2000 years behind us, there should be little difficulty in determining to whom, and to what this passage refers.

John is taken into the wilderness to see a woman arrayed in purple, and scarlet, and decked with precious stones. She had the golden cup in her hand full of abominations, and filthiness of her fornication. She is sitting upon a scarlet coloured beast full of the names of blasphemy. This beast having seven heads and ten horns. Surely the word wilderness here is in itself something we could interpret as the symbol of a spiritual jungle. Note that today. The beast is described in language which admits of no misinterpretation for we have met this ugly monster in the past. It is indeed the old familiar seven headed ten horned beast. Recognised by all students of prophecy as the fourth beast of Daniel, the prophets vision, of Daniel chapter 7 and verse 17, the fourth world empire—the Roman empire in its pagan and later in its papal development.

Upon this strange beast, so strange indeed, that it is not like the former beasts given the name of any living animal, is seated this female figure covered with blasphemous titles. On her forehead is written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Now notice, John saw her drunk. This woman is drunk. Drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of the Lord Jesus Christ. We cannot wonder that he marvelled greatly at this apparent triumph of evil. The angel indeed had to comfort him with the message that has comforted and sustained many a suffering saints since. The message identified that evil system, and gave its assurance of its eventual judgement and doom.

What did John really see? He saw in the woman of the rise of the papacy, and he saw the woman or the papacy was riding this scarlet covered beast which was the old pagan Roman empire. By the way, the wearing of the purple is the sign of royalty. Here we have a woman decked with all the emblems of royal regalia. In a book of Roman ceremonials compiled by Archbishop Marcilo, and dedicated to Pope Leo the 10th. Five articles of dress in scarlet are listed: a vest is mentioned studded with pearls, the Popes mitres of gold, and precious stones, his hat and those of the cardinals are also scarlet colour.

But notice this in verse 3, this woman is full of the names of blasphemy under the harlots superintendents. The church of Rome puts forth blasphemous pretensions far worse than imperial Rome did in pagan days. The Pope is placed by the cardinals in God's temple, and the cardinals kiss the feet of the Pope. This ceremony is called, The adoration, in fact, the Roman Catholic church celebrated a Papal coin representing the cardinals kneeling before the Pope, and on it this blasphemous legend quorum quanta adorant which is whom they create they adore. This is nothing less, friend, than paganism baptise, and is blasphemous in the sight of God.

Medal of Pope Innocent XI, struck in 1680. The reverse side shows a woman with the cup in her hand.
In verse 4, the woman has a golden cup in her hand, full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. The cup is often used in the scriptures as an emblem. The Psalmist said in Psalm 23 and verse 5, My cup runneth over. Meaning, an indication of multiplicity of blessing. And in Isaiah chapter 51 and verse 7. Jerusalem is referred to as having drunk, at the hand of the Lord, the cup of His fury. So the cup can mean blessing, and the cup can mean fury.

Then in Jeremiah chapter 51 and verse 7, we have a very revealing statement, the prophet said, Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. The woman on the beast holds in her hand from which the kings of the earth, and the inhabitants drink of her doctrine which turn them away from the pure worship of Jehovah into idolatrous practices.

In the days of the Babylonian empire king Belshazzar, and his lords, desecrated God's holy vessels which had been taken out of the temple at Jerusalem. In a somewhat similar manner, in these latter days, Rome has taken many of God's sacred symbols and doctrines, and has poured her own wine of false teaching into them for her own glory and end causing the European nations in particular to drink the wine of her fornication. That golden cup, its dregs has damned many a precious soul.

In 1825 A.D., on the occasion of the jubilee of Pope Leo the 12th, he struck a metal bearing on the side his own image, and on the other that of Church of Rome; symbolise as a woman, holding in her left hand a cross, and in her right the cup with the legend around her 'sedet super universum', the whole world is her seat.

The angel told John in verse 15, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. Thus in a dual capacity she not only sat upon a Roman beast, but actually exercised control and rule over many peoples. The church of Rome has exercised supreme authority both spiritual and otherwise over millions of its adherents throughout the entire world. Friend, that is an historical fact, and it cannot be denied, and it cannot be refuted.

The accuracy of this prophecy to John is absolutely incredible. Surely friend, we are looking at the revelation of Jesus Christ who is risen from the dead and is coming again.

But there is something else you must look at, in verse 5 it says, There was a name written on the woman's forehead, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT. If you go to the epistle of the Thessalonians chapter 2 and verse 7, you will find the apostle Paul talking about the mystery of iniquity which was beginning to work in his day. He described it to the first century church as the rise of the man of sin, and he identifies the man of sin as a false bishop and as a false apostle. He doesn't identify him as an infidel Jew or an atheist. He identifies him as a false bishop and a false apostle.

So Paul's mystery of iniquity spoken of in Thessalonians 2:7 was in its fulfilment in this mystery of Revelations chapter 17 and verse 5, the description by Paul of this lawless one; and the record of John as to the activity of the Papacy. Definitely indicating that they one in the same. The Babylon of this 17th chapter of Revelation is characterised by the word MYSTERY.

The great and distinguished feature of worship in ancient Babylon was under the name of MYSTERIES. The Chaldean mysteries can be traced up to the days of Queen Semarames who lived only a few centuries after the flood, and is known to have impressed on Babylonians the image of her own depraved and polluted mind. That beautiful but abandoned Queen of Babylon was not only a paragon of unbridled lust and licentiousness, but in the mystery she had a chief hand informing. She was worshipped as Rea - the great mother of the Gods.

Here we have the mother and the child coming into being. Isn't it amazing? She was worshipped as Rea mother of the Gods with such atrocious rights as would identify her with Venus the mother of all impurity; and raised the very city where she had reigned to a bad eminence among the nations as the grand seat of idolatry and consecrated prostitution. Thus, was this Chaldean Queen fit, and a remarkable prototype of the woman in the apocalypse with the golden cup in her hand and the name MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Friend, what John saw in this woman sitting upon this scarlet coloured beast was a vivid picture of the rise and the fall of the papacy. In fact, she is so big in the picture she is breaking the very frame. Shamelessly this very day, Rome is wearing this very raiment, the very hues, and the very colours portrayed on the pages of inspired prophecy. Go to a mass, and you will see all the colours that are mentioned in this portion of scripture! You may know the harlot by her attire, certainly by the name on her brow.

Ah, but notice this friend, and it is another true historical fact, and I shudder when I say it, John continues his description of the woman. He says in verse 16, And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of saints. I want you to notice this, she is drunken with the blood of saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. Then he says, When I saw her, I wondered at her with great admiration. The best way for me to interpret this verse is to quote from the book The Approaching End of the Age which is now out of print. Men and woman don't read books like this anymore! Written by the marvellous Granton Guinness who ministered in Dublin.

He was a lawyer and mightily anointed by God in the days of Spurgeon and in the days of the great preachers."It has been calculated that the popes of Rome have directly or indirectly slain, on account of their faith, 15,000,000 men and woman who hold to the Bible as the Word of God, and who loved not their lives unto death, but resisted against blood, striving against sin."No wonder friend, when John saw this he wondered with great amazement which is the literal translation of the last line. John himself was the victim of persecution by pagan Rome. He saw literally thousands martyred for their Christian faith. But when he saw here in vision that it was a church, supposedly Christian, persecuting the followers of the Lamb, and drunken with their blood, he could not but wonder with great amazement!

But here is something you must consider. One of the startling facts is that Roman Catholic writers, and I'm quoting from their books—if there is a priest reading this book and I'm glad you are reading this book. I challenge you. I'm only quoting from your books. As I quoted in the sermon about The Worship of Mary, I quote it in your books, and I'm quoting again. One of the startling facts is that Roman Catholic writers freely admit that the beast referred to in this chapter is the Roman Empire.

Indeed, they are forced to this admission the marks are too definite and conclusive to admit any other interpretation, but they very cleverly evade the logical conclusion. You see, there is a conclusion to this matter and they cleverly evade it - that naturally follows! They claim the scarlet whore is not the present day church of Rome, but a later development at the end of the age, when they say, the Roman Catholic church will apostatise. Now they say that in their books, friend, they already have!

Thus, and I say this with respect to her deluded followers, they preserve the illusion that the church of Rome is still the true and only church of Jesus Christ. The truth, of course, remains that they have had the apostasy since the days of Constantine, and indeed, before. Even Cardinal Belamine says that,"Rome is signified in the apocalypse by the name of Babylon."Cardinal Buronius admits that,"All persons confess that Rome is denoted by the name of Babylon in the apocalypse of John."Bosnet observes that,"The features are so marked that it is easy to decipher Rome under the figure of Babylon."I am quoting from these Roman historians and theologians. But while admitting that, Babylon the great seated on the seven hills means Rome. Papal interpreters assert that it means heathen Rome and not Christian Rome. The Rome of the Caesars, and that not of the popes.

Friend, in reply to this we must say first that the name upon the harlot's brow is MYSTERY and that heathen Rome was never a mystery! The true character of heathen Rome was never concealed. On the other hand, so-called Christian Rome is a MYSTERY! It is not what it seems. In profession it is divine. In character it is satanic. I could go on today giving point after point, evidence after evidence proving the accuracy, and the minute details of God's holy Word; and showing the scarlet woman of Revelation chapter 17 is a picture of an apostate church manifested in the papacy and in the church of Rome. I know I have been strong, but friend, I trust you can detect the love that is in my heart for Protestants and for Catholics, but I must preach the truth.

Let me close this part of our study by giving you another unanswerable proof. Look at verse 8 to 11. We are reading symbolic language here. Language of symbols you've got to decipher them. You've got to find out what they are. The angel says to John, I will tell you of the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carried her which had the seven heads and the ten horns. Verse 8, The beast that thou sawest, now notice the language, WAS and is not. That's funny language. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder.

Look at this remarkable statement friend, Whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world! Powerful! Theologians would like to leave verses like that out. These are powerful verses. When they behold the beast that was not, and now yet is. Verse 9, And here is the mind that hath wisdom, God give us minds today that have wisdom. I see Protestant clergymen on the way to Rome. They haven't minds and they haven't wisdom. I see them trucking with them. I see them worshipping with them. I see them entering into their doctrines, I see them, they have no minds, and they have no wisdom!

Here is the mind that hath wisdom, the seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth - there you have the first clue. Verse 10, And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. Verse 11, And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. What does all this mean? Which was, is not, and yet is? Strange language, but clear as clear can be to the thoughtful student of prophecy and of history.

This is a powerful, accurate description of the historic development of the fourth gentile world empire. It existed that's where this little word WAS comes in. And it existed for a long time as the pagan Roman empire. It then ceased to exist, and then WAS NOT during the barbarian invasion of the 5th century. And yet, rose again in another and in more sinister forms under the dynasty of the popes. That's where Daniel saw a little horn rising out of the sea speaking blasphemy!

The great apostasy which was in reality a continuation of paganism with a veneer of Christianity. No wonder the angel said, The world wondered after the beast: meaning the unregenerated masses of mankind were amazed and enamoured by the peculiar semi-religious, semi-political system drunken with the heady wine of her fornication.

Watch again, friend, the accuracy of God's holy Word. We see in these verses the seven heads of pagan Rome. The seven forms of government of which in John's day, 5 had fallen, one was, and one was yet to come; and we are told there is another significance here, the seven hills in which the woman was seated - here we have it. What more proof do we need? The city of Rome, today, is still spoken of as the city of seven hills."3

"Who Is Mystery Babylon?

"4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."

Revelation 17:4-6

This article shows us who the Bible calls Mystery Babylon.

1. The Location of Mystery Babylon

In Revelation 17:3 it says"So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."Revelation 17:9 shows the location of the woman which is mystery Babylon. In Revelation 17:9 it says"And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."This is Rome in Italy. The Encyclopedia Britannica describes the"Seven Hills Of Rome"as a"group of hills on or about which the ancient city of Rome was built."(1) The location of mystery Babylon is in Rome, Italy. Today many call Vatican City the headquarters of the Roman Catholic church.

2. The Colors Of Mystery Babylon

Revelation 17: 4 describes the colors of Mystery Babylon. In Revelation 17:4 it says"And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:"Notice the colors purple, scarlet (or red), gold, precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand. In the year 2000, the newspaper starting showing color pictures of the pope as he traveled to Egypt and Israel."An article titled"Pope Celebrates Mass in Egypt -Pontiff Deplores Bias Against Christians"(2) describes some of the pope's colors,"The pope was greeted with cheers, emotional waving and song as he slowly made his way to the altar, dressed in white and gold robes."This picture also shows the pope giving a wafer to an Egyptian Catholic with the pope and cardinal holding a cup with gold in the inside standing in front of a gold and white chair. The cardinal also had clothing that was white and scarlet. In the March 12th issue of the Oregonian an article titled"The Pope's Crusade"(3), shows a picture of the pope dressed in a purple and white robe with a scarf standing between two cardinals dressed in white and scarlet. Another article from the Columbian Newspaper, titled"Frail pontiff forgoes Christ's symbolic walk"(4) shows a picture of the pope dressed in white and scarlet . We see from Revelation 17:4 that these unique colors show the Roman Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon.

3. Mystery Babylon Drunken With The Blood Of The Saints

In Revelation 17:5-6 it says"5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."In verse 5 the Bible calls Mystery Babylon the mother of Harlots ... In verse 6 we see Mystery Babylon"Drunken with the blood of the saints."During the Inquisition"From 1200 to 1808, unspeakable tortures and death stalked the Catholic world, with 68 million victims.(5)"During this time period many Bible believing Christians were killed by the Catholics.

In closing, as we look at the location, the unique colors and a history of killing Bible believing Christians we can see that The Roman Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon."4

But so many countless times and for so many centuries did the Church extend wide open her orifices to accommodate all sizes of evil favors that she, without question, is the Mother of all Harlots; the scum of Fornication; and the filth of the Earth. Not only did she sell her soul to the Devil but in the process she also tortured, maimed, burnt, raped, and killed countless innocent Christians and non-Christians alike, at home and abroad — all in the name of the Almighty Creator!

We have to admire and give grudging credit at her ingenuity and craftiness, being able to seduce and subdue such multitudes for so many centuries. There definitely cannot be a better example in the entire history of humankind than the craftiness of the Evil One in misleading humans through his infallible popes! Their insistence on infallibility reduced hapless humanity into soulless serfs groveling and begging for the mercy of salvation from the Church, the Beast of Revelation. What ingenuity! What cunning! What craftiness! What power!

We have to wonder in great admiration and give Satan the accolades he is due. The Prince of Darkness truly deserves a standing ovation.


QUOTES OF THE PARACLETE

The promised Comforter Shri Mataji
The Paraclete Shri Mataji

"Today we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The birth of Jesus Christ is very symbolic because He was born in such a manner that even the poorest of the poor wouldn't be born — in a stable. And He was put in the bed which was made of dried grass. He came on this Earth to show people that for a person who is an incarnation, or who is a highly Realized soul, is not bothered about the comfort of the body.

His Message was so great and so deep but He had disciples who were not prepared for the battle they had to fight. It's the same thing that sometimes happen in Sahaja Yoga... .

What Christ tried to show through His birth: There's no need to have very comfortable great birth in a big hospital in London. No. The simplicity of His birth should have made all the Christians extremely simple and not at all money-oriented."

"I say it is the Blossom Time which is being promised, which is being already prophesized. Even a great poet in your country, William Blake, has prophesized it. He said,"These times will come when men of God will become prophets and these prophets will have Power to make other prophets."I mean nobody else could be more precise than Blake, I tell you. He was so great to say this will happen and this is what we have to expect.

When we go to anybody for seeking, have we become prophets? And what is a prophet? A prophet is a person who is a collective being and who knows all about it, who is the master. We call prophet a master and that's what you have to become — the master. And that mastery is very simple because is all built within you, just it has to be connected. Like anything, like a television set is to be connected to the mains. It's all built-in. It's there. It just starts working. In the same way, you are that. You are that. Just it is to be connected. Whatever may be your caste, community, race, nationality, shapes, heights, anything whatever it may be makes no difference because all of you have got this great thing within you, this Power of rebirth and you are to be born again and you will be born again. Why not today?

Peter de Rosa, Vicars of Christ: The Dark Side of the Papacy
"Jesus was born in a stable. In his ministry, he had nowhere to lay his head.

Today, his Vicar inhabits a palace with eleven thousand rooms. And then there is Castelgandolfo, overlooking the Alban Lake where pontiffs go to escape the summer heat. Beautiful Castlegandolfo, slightly larger than the Vatican, is where John Paul, at some cost, had a swimming pool built for his own personal use.

Jesus renounced possessions. He constantly taught: 'Go, sell all thou hast and give to the poor, then come and follow me.' He preached doom to the rich and powerful. Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, he said, where neither rust nor moth can spoil it.

Christ's Vicar lives surrounded by treasures, some of pagan origin. Any suggestion that the pope should sell all he has and give to the poor is greeted with derision as impractical. The rich young men in the gospel reacted in the same way.

Throughout his life, Jesus lived simple; he died naked, offering the sacrifice of his life on the cross. When the pope renews that sacrifice at pontifical high mass, no greater contrast could be imagined. Without any sense of irony, Christ's Vicar is clad in gold and the costliest silks."

"The first assault she now remembers, Ms. Burns said, occurred when she was 11 years old and heard someone crying in the school bathroom. When she went in to see who it was, she said, she found Father Porter raping a six-year-old girl. 'I tried to stop him, but he grabbed me and sodomized me,' Ms. Burns said. 'He was absolutely violent. He told me he was stronger than me and that he had the power of God.'"

New York Times, Dec. 4, 1992




"It may be that the Vatican now officially deemphasizes the attribute of princeliness to the members of its Sacred College, but in many nations, their collectives eminences, the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church, are ranked on an equal plane with the highest nobility — are, in fact, held to be the equivalent of"princes."That is precisely what for centuries these scarlet-robed generals of the Church were — princes, living in palaces and presiding over great archdioceses and divisions of the papal administration, surrounded by intricate courts and protocol, enrobed with the majesty of the state as well as of the Church, serving at the right hand of pontiffs, creating the successors to Peter."

William W. Sanger, M. D., The History of Prostitution

"In Rome, in the 11 th century, a brothel and a church stood side by side, and five hundred years after, under the pontificate of Paul II., prostitutes were numerous. Statutes were enacted and many precautions taken, proving the grossness of manners of that epoch. One convicted of selling a girl to infamy ['white slavery'] was heavily fined, and if he did not pay within ten days had one foot cut off. The nobility and common people alike indulged habitually in all kinds of excess. Tortures, floggings, brandings, banishment, were inflicted on some to terrify others, but with incomplete success. To carry off and detain a prostitute against her will was punished by amputation of the right hand, imprisonment, flogging or exile. The rich, however, invariably bought immunity for themselves."

"'When I would scream, he would put his hand over my mouth so no one would hear me,' said Daniel Lyons, describing events of thirty years ago... . 'James Porter sexually assaulted me countless times, and each time he would chastise me by saying that what I had done was very bad and that God would punish me if I told anyone,' said Stephen Johnson, who was an altar boy at Mr. Porter's church in North Attleboro, Mass. 'Shame and guilt became the foundation of my being.'"

Peter de Rosa, Vicars of Christ: The Dark Side of the Papacy

"Ever since he was a boy in Tuscany, Hidlebrand, son of a village carpenter, had had a passionate devotion to St Peter. As Prince of the Apostles, there was no end to Peter's powers. He was Chief Sheppard, he could bind and loose in heaven and on earth. When Hidlebrand became pope, he drew up a Dictatus, or list, of twenty-seven theses outlining his powers as Peter's Vicar. Among them were these:

The pope can be judged by no one on earth.
The Roman church has never erred, nor can it err until the end of time.
The pope alone can depose bishops.
He alone is entitled to imperial insignia.
He can dethrone emperors and kings and absolve their subjects from allegiance.
All princes are obliged to kiss his feet.
His legates, even when not priests, have precedence over all bishops.
A rightly elected pope is, without question, a saint, made so by merits of Peter ...

The least that can be said is that his credulity was alarming, especially in view of what the New Testament reports about St Peter's mistakes. These forgeries made it seem that his absolutist claims were based on ancient records zealously kept in the Rome archives. For seven centuries, the Greeks had called Rome the home of forgeries. Whenever they tried talking with Rome, the popes brought out forged documents, even papal additions to Council documents, which the Greeks, naturally, had never seen.

Gregory went way beyond the Donation of Constantine. He had a whole school of forgers under his very nose, turning out document after document, with the papal seal of approval, to cater for his every need ...

History became a minor branch of theology where it has remained ever since. After all, even history cannot contradict infallible truth."

Janice T. Connel, Angel Power

"Only God is worth of worship. A holy angel recognizes that truth. No creature or created object deserves worship. There is much evidence that evil spirits desire to be worshipped...

The demons are hyperactive, always drawing attention to themselves, to sorrow, to misfortune, to half-truths, to outright deceptions. Evil spirits have angelic powers that have been darkened. They are quite capable of wreaking havoc in the world in which we live. Their counterfeit truth is presented to us in countless deceptive ways. Often such distortion is accepted by those who do not have the gift of discernment... . Angel Power guards us from the lies of the evil spirits. God gives His children freedom. Satan places his followers in bondage."

Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols/The Anti-Christ

"I condemn Christianity, I bring against the Christian Church the most terrible charge any prosecutor has ever uttered. To me it is the extremest thinkable form of corruption, it has had the will to the ultimate corruption conceivably possible. The Christian Church has left nothing untouched by its depravity, it has made of every value a disvalue, of every truth a lie, of every kind of integrity a vileness of soul. People still dare to talk to me of its 'humanitarian' blessings! To abolish any state of distress whatever has been profoundly inexpedient to it: it has lived on states of distress, it has created states of distress in order to eternalize itself ... The worm of sin, for example: it was only the Church which enriched mankind with this state of distress! — 'Equality of souls before God', this falsehood, this pretext for the rancune of all the base-minded, this explosive concept which finally became revolution, modern idea and the principle of the decline of the entire social order — is Christian dynamite ... 'Humatarian' blessings of Christianity! To cultivate out of humanitas a self-contradiction, an art of self-violation, a will to falsehood at any price, an antipathy, a contempt for every good and honest instinct! These are the blessings of Christianity! — Parasitism as the sole practice of the Church; with its ideal of green-sickness, of 'holiness' draining away all blood, all love, all hope for life; the Beyond as the will to deny reality of every kind; the Cross as the badge of recognition for the most subterranean conspiracy there has ever been — a conspiracy against health, beauty, well-constitutedness, bravery, intellect, benevolence of soul, against life itself ...

Wherever there are walls I shall inscribe this eternal accusation against Christianity against them — I can write in letters which make even the blind see ... I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty — I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind."

Jaroslav Pelikan, The Illustrated Jesus Through the Centuries

"You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free,"Jesus the Liberator had promised (John 8:32). But according to the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoyevsky's Brothers Karamasov, that promise was dangerous; and ever since then people had been coming to the powers of church and state to"lay their freedom at our feet, and say to us, 'Make us your slaves, but feed us.'"Therefore Christ's return to the streets of Seville was a threat, and the Inquisitor ordered him to"go, and come no more."And the legend concludes:"The Prisoner went away."

Walter Mercado, Beyond The Horizon

"What is important now is to seek the true meaning of the messages of the masters. For two thousand years, those messages have been exploited, used by the preachers, pastors, and priests to build gleaming castles, to build treasure troves of riches while the poor starved. They served as salesmen of paradise and perdition to build palaces. But few put the message of the masters, the message of love, into practice. Often, it was just the opposite. Too many have been killed in the name of God. The Crusades sent army after army to wage war in the Holy Land. Inquisitors and pious prosecutors sent too many so-called heretics and witches to their deaths. Now we must renounce all the venom of the past, release the centuries of anger, and breathe the peace and love of the Age of Aquarius. We must stop being beggars seeking salvation or praying for prosperity and become grateful participants in the order of the universe, in harmony with it."

Walter Mercado, Beyond The Horizon: Visions of a New Millennium,
A Time Warner Company, 1997 p. 108





"The panel found that from 1964 until 1987, when the institution, St. Anthony's Seminary, closed for financial reasons, 11 members of its faculty engaged in sexual misconduct, including intercourse, with a total of at least 34 boys and probably more. Most of the victims were students of the seminary who were 14-16 years old...members of the choir were as young as 7." New York Times, Dec. 1, 1993




"Now that Pope John Paul II has apologized for the wrongs that the Catholic Church has committed over the centuries, he should now revoke the Papal Bulls that governments have used to rape us of our lands, resources, culture and right to self-determination.

The Papal Bulls of 1095, 1452 and 1493, which have been incorporated into the legal systems of all big governments around the world, are one of the most significant causes of suffering of the people all over the world. Saying he is sorry is simply not enough. We believe people all over the world must try every avenue to seek revocation of the Papal Bulls. Governments have relied on them to justify everything from colonization to genocide. Only by revoking the underlying authority can we then start over to regain our lands and rights to practice our own cultures.

We hope this will be seen as an opportunity for people all over the world to regain their rights to choose for themselves what they want to do with their own territories, without domination and control by governments which illegally established themselves via the discovery doctrine. One of the original bases of the discovery doctrine came from the Papal Bull in which Pope Urban II called the first Crusade, in 1095. During the Crusades, millions of acres in the Middle East were summarily taken over and governed by papal sanctioned European rulers. Over time, this culturally racist 'justification' became a foundation of international law.

In 1452, Pope Nicholas V issued the Papal Bull Romanus Pontifex, authorizing the Catholic kings and princes '...to invade, search out, capture, vanquish and subdue all Saracens and pagans whatsoever, and other enemies of Christ wheresoever placed, and...to reduce their persons to perpetual slavery, and to apply and appropriate...possessions and goods, and to convert them to their use and profit...'

In 1493, a similar Papal Bull granted Spain the right to conquer the lands which Columbus had found, as well as any lands the Spanish might discover in the future. By the time Columbus carried the Discovery Doctrine to the 'New World', it had already been applied to African people by the Portuguese, to Baltic people by the German knights, to the 'wild Irish tribesman' by the English, and to others.

In 1803, US President Thomas Jefferson purchased the 'Louisiana Territory' from France for $15,000,000.00. France claimed this territory after entering into a treaty with Spain in 1800. It was believed by the British, French and Spanish governments that they had the right to discover and claim the land because the inhabitants were not Christian. The kings and queens of these countries were sanctioned and authorized by the Pope. Known in history as The Doctrine of Discovery or the Law of Nations, the principle was used by the early explorers and colonizers to justify the genocide and stealing of land first authorized by the Pope in 1095, and again in 1452. This is the document Columbus relied on in 1492."

Charles Templeton, Farewell to God

"Many think of the church as a sacred institution and of priests and the clergy as men wholly dedicated to the service of God and humankind. This assumption has not always been valid; indeed, it has seldom been so. In the Middle Ages, in particular, the Christian church approximated a terrorist organization, being the instigator and the protagonist in the indestructible horrors of the infamous Inquisition.

In France and, later, in other parts of Europe, beginning in the fourteenth century and peaking in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, tens of thousands of innocent men and women — even children — were persecuted, arrested, arrested, imprisoned, tried in secret, tortured, flayed, hanged, or burnt at the stake in a protracted obsession with heretics, witches, sorcerers, black magic, and demon-possession."

Charles Templeton, Farewell to God





"The Archbishop of Newfoundland has resigned after charges that the Roman Catholic Church's hierarchy ignored or failed to deal effectively with three years of scandal involving allegations of sexual abuse against altar boys, orphaned youths and others by [20] Roman Catholic priests and church laymen....An inquiry has heard evidence that boys as young as six were abused at the orphanage, on one occasion within hours of being admitted."

New York Times, July 20, 1990




"The real terror began in 1232 when Gregory IX established the Inquisition. Anyone who disagreed with papal authority was to be burned. In 1233 Dominican Friars were appointed Inquisitors by Gregory IX. These monks were not under the authority of civil law. They were only under subjection to the pope.

"Their guiding principle was: 'Better for a hundred innocent people to die than for one heretic to go free'"(Vicars of Christ, Peter De Rosa, 163).

Papal authority demanded that they have no mercy on their victims, lest they become suspect themselves. This group of monks have been the grand Inquisitors in all countries in which the tribunals have been established.

"There is no known case of a secular prince or magistrate refusing to punish anyone convicted of heresy by friars of the Inquisition. Popes made no bones about it: any prince who did not burn heretics as charged by the Inquisition would be excommunicated himself and go before the same tribunals for heresy"(Vicars of Christ, De Rosa, 177).

Inquisitors would travel from town to town, meeting with local authorities, ordering them to gather the townsfolk into the local church and encourage parents to betray their children, and children to betray their parents. They would demand conversion within 30 days. Upon completion of said time, and after examination, those found guilty were imprisoned and tortured or burned.

There is no record of any acquittal. The Inquisitors never lost a case. There was no legal representation for any of the accused, none would dare.

The Spanish Inquisition was the most powerful, even the kings of Spain feared the lords of the Inquisition. They were required to participate in the execution of martyrs, and to enforce the sentences of the tribunals.

The Grand Inquisitor for Spain was a well-known man by the name of Thomas Torquemada. He was appointed in 1483 by Isabella and Ferdinand and confirmed by Alexander VI. He ruled tyrannically for 15 years and the victims he burned totaled 10,220.

One of the earliest persecutions was against the Waldenses and Albigenses, their beliefs were as follows:

"They denied that the Roman Catholic Church was the church of Christ; [declared that] St. Peter had never come to Rome, had never founded the papacy; [and that] the popes were successors to the emperors, not to the apostles. [They taught that] Christ had no place to lay his head, but the pope lived in a palace; Christ was propertyless and penniless, but Christian prelates were rich; surely these lordly archbishops and bishops, these worldly priests, these fat monks, were the Pharisees of old returned to life! The Roman Church, they were sure, was the Whore of Babylon, the clergy were a synagogue of Satan, the pope was Antichrist. They denounced the preachers of crusades as murderers...laughed at indulgences and relics...They called the churches 'dens of thieves' and Catholic priests seemed to them 'traitors, liars, and hypocrites'"(The Story of Civilization, Durant, IV: 772).

"The apostle Paul said, 'If any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.' (Rom.8:9) And the Lord Jesus was kind, loving and peaceful even to sinners. He never persecuted anyone, not even those who were in error. But the arrogant Roman Church, with the blood of the Inquisition on its hands, unrepentant and defiant, presumes to set itself up as the final authority in the realm of faith and morals, and has cruelly slaughtered tens of thousands and has persecuted millions of others merely because they did not submit to its domination"(Roman Catholicism, Boettner, 410).

Four hundred years before the Inquisition, Nicholas I:"...encouraged the King of Bulgaria, a new convert to what he thought was 'Christianity,' to force Rome's religion upon his subjects"(A Woman Rides the Beast, Hunt, 124).

"I glorify you for having maintained your authority by putting to death those wandering sheep who refused to enter the fold; and...a king need not fear to command massacres, when these will retain his subjects in obedience, or cause them to submit to the faith of Christ and God will reward him in this world, and in eternal life, for these murders"(History of the Popes, Cormenin, 243).

What gives the Roman Catholic Church the right to judge or condemn anyone? Christ says:"Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned..."but for centuries even before the Inquisition, they took it upon themselves to judge and condemn, when their mission should have been the dissemination of the TRUE gospel!

In 1527 Luther wrote:"It is not right and I am deeply troubled that the poor people are so pitifully put to death, burned and cruelly slain. Let everyone believe what he likes. If he is wrong, he will have punishment enough in hellfire. Unless there is sedition one should oppose them with scriptures...with fire you will accomplish nothing"(Travail of Religious Liberty, Roland H. Bainton, 61).

Even though"...The [civil] law forbade torture, knowing that it would only lead to hypocrisy and perjury"(Vicars of Christ, De Rosa, 177) the Catholic church had no such scruples and employed any and all means to silence what they considered"heresy". We will cite only a few examples of the tortures inflicted upon its victims, all in the name of Jesus Christ!

[The Hoist]"... consisted in tying the hands behind the back. One end of the rope was then secured around the hands and the other end of the rope passed through a pulley on the ceiling. The victim was raised then dropped by sudden jerks. Each time the elevation was increased and weights...placed on the feet...."(Travail of Religious Liberty, Bainton, 45)

This caused excruciating pain. It pulled all the joints out of socket and the ropes would cut through the wrist to the bone.

[The Water Cure was horrific]"...the suspect was bound to a ladder, so placed that the feet were above the head. The mouth was held open by an iron clasp and the nostrils plugged. A rag was placed down the throat. The mouth was then filled with water. Swallowing took the rag down the gullet and cut off breathing. When the victim was on the point of suffocation, the rag was pulled up and the soft voice of the Inquisitor appealed for a confession"[According to other sources, the rag was made of a rough material so that when they pulled it out of the throat, it would tear the tissue.] (The Travail of Religious Liberty, Bainton, 46).

[The Iron Virgin]"...This infernal instrument...surpassed the others in fiendish ingenuity. Its exterior was a beautiful woman, a large doll richly dressed, with arms extended ready to embrace its victims...the inside however was slightly different with knives extending about 12 inches...some of these knives are so placed as to enter the eyes of those who the image enfolds in its embrace; others are set so as to penetrate the ears and brain; others to pierce the breast, and others again to gore the abdomen"[This torture device was sprayed with"holy water"and inscribed with the Latin words meaning,"Glory be only to God."] (The Convent Horror, Twenty-one Years in a Convent Dungeon Eight Feet Long, Six Feet Wide, From Official Records, Barbara Ubryk, 109, 112).

Ralph Woodrow, in his book Babylon Mystery Religion, on page 99, goes on to explain the horror faced by those who would not embrace Catholicism:

"Some who rejected the Roman Church had molten lead poured into their ears and mouth. Eyes were gouged out...Some were forced to jump from cliffs onto large spikes fixed below...Others were choked to death with mangled pieces of their own bodies...."

It is an evil system that professes"...that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate."[void of judgment] (Titus 1:16) They have viciously murdered thousands upon thousands of innocent people and God will avenge the blood of his servants at her hand. There is no doubt that the Catholic Church is"...drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus...."(Rev.17:6)

If you are joined with her, Scripture is very clear on what you must do:"...Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities."(Rev.18:4-5) ...

Jesus comforted us concerning those who would"...think that he doeth God service"by killing us (Jn.16:2), with this admonition:"...fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."(Matt.10:28)"

"SENIOR figures in the Catholic Church who covered up the activities of paedophile priests are being investigated by detectives and could face charges of criminal negligence.

The inquiry, led by Steven Hussey, the head of Warwickshire CID, will look at several senior church figures who are accused of failing to report to police warnings that their subordinates were abusing children. Last night police were unable to say whether Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, the Archbishop of Westminster and head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, would be investigated."

William W. Sanger, M. D., The History of Prostitution

"Some of the political immorality and shamelessness of the court of Rome, and of other Italian courts, was owing to the system which had sprung up, whereby each pope provided for his family. The term nepote (nephew), [from which we get the term nepotism], was in common use as expressing the relationship which existed between the pope and the individual selected for advancement. The priests of all denominations had nephews and nieces to provide for, and the abuses covered by the term were objects of the keenest satire. [I.e., their children were born out of wedlock. Implied also are the sins of pedophilia and incest.] In fact, Innocent VIII. thus provided for eight openly avowed sons and daughters. The pseudo-avuncular obligations of Sextus IV. were also well known."[I.e., pedophilia is implied; Sextus being the fake 'uncle' of many children. As 'uncle' he was able to spend much time with small children.]...

The effect produced by this example in high places, particularly upon the clergy, and through them on the community, can be imagined. By a decree of the [Catholic] Church in the eleventh session of the [Fourth] Lateran Council (1215), it appears that the clergy were accustomed to live in a state of public concubinage, [I.e., cohabitation without benefit of marriage], and even to allow others to do so for money paid them for permission [i.e., indulgences]. Dante, in one of his daring flights, compares the papal court to Babylon and declares it a place deprived of virtue with no shame."

Eugenics Pub. Co., 1939, pg. 154-64




"A ROMAN Catholic priest was described as a disgrace to his cloth and jailed for seven years yesterday after being convicted of 18 sexual assaults on young boys in his care.

Eric Taylor persistently preyed on boys as young as six while he worked as an administrator at Father Hudson's Homes, a Catholic orphanage in Coleshill, Warwicks. He subjected his victims to systematic sexual abuse, then turned a blind eye as they were beaten with sticks and straps by nuns."
