Book of Revelation 18.1-3
Who Made Nations Drunk

The woeful fall and ruin of that whore of Rome (Babylon), as she continue losing her power and influence, predates Christ's Second Coming. Chapter 18 announces the judgment of the Church and a warning from heaven about her iniquities. Its tone is"more urgent and direct," as the seriousness of the Last Judgment is pressed upon the conscience of the faithful.

  
 

And after these things, I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; And the earth was lightened with his glory.
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitations of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kinds of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Book of Revelation 18:1-3



And after these things, I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

Book of Revelation 18:1


The woeful fall and ruin of that whore of Rome (Babylon), as she continue losing her power and influence, predates Christ's Second Coming. Chapter 18 announces the judgment of the Church and a warning from heaven about her iniquities. Its tone is"more urgent and direct," as the seriousness of the Last Judgment is pressed upon the conscience of the faithful.

"The downfall and destruction of Babylon form an event so fully determined in the counsels of God, and of such consequence to his interests and glory, that the visions and predictions concerning it are repeated. 1. Here is another angel sent from heaven, attended with great power and lustre, v. 1. He had not only light in himself, to discern the truth of his own prediction, but to inform and enlighten the world about that great event; and not only light to discern it, but power to accomplish it. 2. This angel publishes the fall of Babylon, as a thing already come to pass; and this he does with a mighty strong voice, that all might hear the cry, and might see how well this angel was pleased to be the messenger of such tidings."1

"come down from heaven;
denoting the suddenness of his appearance and cry; he came down at once, and cried out immediately; the subject of his cry, the destruction of Babylon....

having great power;
to do great work, to declare the fall of Babylon the great: or"having great authority"; being sent from the King of kings, in his name, as his ambassador, to proclaim what shortly will come to pass; an event of the greatest importance to the glory of God, the interest of Christ, and the comfort of his people:

and the earth was lightened with his glory;
by which is meant the glorious Gospel of Christ, the light of which will at this then be very great: ... knowledge will be increased, and the earth will be filled with it: "2


Babylon the Great, code name for the Vatican, the only
remaining ancient empire that still stands today.
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitations of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Book of Revelation 18:2


This phrase is here prophetical of her fall and intended to portray her utter desolation, her spiritual and carnal wickedness, her great impiety and injustice: "Rome the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird."

Vatican the Great has fallen and is infested with devils, foul spirits, filth, fornication, lust, greed, hate, sin, evil and every other unclean act. All nations and peoples under the Catholic Church enjoyed the fruits of her fornication. All sorts of debased humans have had their sadistic cravings satisfied within unholy church compounds. Orgasms and ejaculations erupted with satanic intensity on the very altars of Christ. For the clergy of the Antichrist there was no greater pleasure than extracting ecstasy from hapless victims at night, and spiritual subservience from masses upon sunrise.

Even two-bit prostitutes have far more decency than these satanic humans who, till today, continue raping female clergy, and sodomizing altar boys inside the sanctuary of the Church, right under the gaze of the crucified Christ. These priests of Satan have baptized millions by marking three crosses on their Agnya Chakra with their forbidden flesh fingering fingers, the exact spot where resides the Universal Savior.

Lord Jesus Christ single-handed chased and beat merchants who just traded within temple grounds, for they were desecrating the sanctity of the House of God. So what drove popes and clergy to commit the most satanic sins within the sanctuary of the Church? How is it possible that baptized priests and popes, living within the walls of holiness, could commit such blasphemous atrocities? Was their own baptism that of the Holy Spirit or the mark of the Beast? Why has the Western world degenerated into Antichrist indulgences if the Holy Spirit is awakened within them? What hope is there if their Vicarious Christi and their representatives themselves succumbed to Evil?

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kinds of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Book of Revelation 18:3


"The reference is not to earthly merchandise, but to spiritual wares, indulgences, idolatries, superstitions, worldly compromises, wherewith the harlot, that is, the apostate Church, has made merchandise of men. This applies especially to Rome; but the Greek, and even in a less degree Protestant churches, are not guiltless."3

All Christian nations have partaken with the Church in her sins. Her lust for luxurious living made them subdue and colonize the entire earth, and countless millions suffered the most agonizing of pain and suffering. The wickedness of Rome had been unforgivable; the Church had not only forsaken the true God herself, and set up the papacy," but had with great art and industry drawn all sorts of men into the spiritual adultery," and by her luxurious living had made great markets and retained them in her interest.

"No civilization spreads without conflict. Second Wave civilizations soon launched a massive attack on the First Wave world, triumphed, and imposed its will on millions, ultimately billions, of human beings.

Long before the Second Wave, of course, from the sixteenth century on, European rulers had already begun to build extensive colonial empires. Spanish priests and conquistadors, French trappers, British, Dutch, and Portuguese or Italian adventurers fanned across the globe, enslaving or decimating whole populations, claiming control of the vast lands, and sending tribute home to their monarchs.

Compared to what was to follow, however, all this was insignificant ... First Wave imperialism was still petty — not yet integrated into the economy. The Second Wave transformed this relatively small-scale pilferage into big business. It transformed Petty Imperialism into Grand Imperialism. Here was a new imperialism aimed not at bringing back a few truckloads of gold or emeralds, spices and silks. Here was an imperialism that ultimately brought back shipload after shipload of nitrates, cotton, palm oil, tin, rubber, bauxite, and tungsten. Here was an imperialism that dug copper mines in the Congo and planted oil rigs in Arabia. Here was an imperialism that sucked in raw materials from the colonies, processed them, and very often spewed the finished manufactured goods back into the colonies at a huge profit. Here, in short, was imperialism no longer peripheral but so integrated into the basic economic structure of the industrial nation that the jobs of millions of ordinary workers came to depend on it...

Many saw imperial conquest as a divine responsibility. Kipling's phrase"White Man's burden," summed up the European's missionary zeal to spread Christianity and"civilization"— meaning, of course, Second Wave civilization. For the colonizers regarded First Wave civilizations, no matter how refined and complex, as backward and underdeveloped. Rural people, especially if they happen to wear dark skins, were supposedly childlike. They were"tricky and dishonest."They were"shiftless."They did not"value life."

Such attitudes made it easier for the Second Wave forces to justify the annihilation of those who stood in the path...

In the Second Wave world, however, Grand Imperialism paid off handsomely. As the economic historian William Woodruff put it: "It was the exploitation of these territories and the growing trade with them that obtained for the European family wealth on a scale never seen before."Built deep into the very structure of the Second Wave economy, feeding its ravenous need for resources, imperialism marched across the planet.

In 1492 when Columbus first set foot in the New World, Europeans controlled only 9 percent of the globe. By 1801 they ruled a third. By 1880, two thirds. And by 1935 Europeans politically controlled 85 per cent of the land surface of the Earth and 70 per cent of its population ... Like Protestant and Catholic missionaries clutching different versions of the Bible, yet both preaching Christ, Marxists and anti-Marxists alike, capitalists and anticapitalists alike, Americans and Russians marched forth into Africa, Asia, and Latin America...

No phenomenon as vast, complex, and transforming as imperialism can be described simply. Its effects on religion, on education, on health, on themes in literature and art, on racial attitudes, on the psycho-structure of whole peoples, as well as more directly on economics, are still being unraveled by the historians ..."4

Christian merchants have done a roaring business for five centuries, supplying goods and services to the Great Whore and her empire flung to the far corners of the globe. As a result the Vatican today has billions upon billions of dollars worth of property, investments, stocks, shares, gold and income. The profits they derived from the wide range of business opportunities made them rich and very happy — and very materialistic. And the Savior's warning fall on deaf ears.

And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
And the disciples were astonished at his words.
But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches, to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. (Mark 10:23-25)

All that immense wealth has also made the western world consume prodigious amounts of drugs, alcohol and pornography. And with it comes ever soaring rates of violence, crime, immorality, divorce, abortion, self-abuse and decadence that permeates all aspects of their society.

But pleasure seeking, consumption conscious Christians today have no time for such conscientious reflection. Why worry when their pope has powers of salvation unmatched by any on Earth and Heaven; even able to rescue, unscathed, sinners from purgatory hell. Catholics believe that through their Church and Vicar they will end up in Heaven, and the rest condemned to eternal damnation in hell. What a marvelous spiritual magician they have!

"It is very shocking sometimes when you see how the Christian nations invaded other countries, completely annihilated, completely finished and destroyed races after races. They were Christians, followers of Christ, taking the Bible in their hand. Can you imagine such a horrible thing this so-called Christians have done in the name of Christ? ... Sort of this great sacrifice of Christ never taught them any lesson, as if it was obliterated from their memory; as if it had no meaning to them — it conveyed nothing to them. They became so violent. Not only that, they taught they had the right to rule the whole world, plunder everyone, destroy everyone. Why? Because they were Christians!" "

"Also, Christianity spread under the wrong banner of Paul and Augustine. And that's how we see the Christianity, so much so that we are shocked how can Christianity of Christ be like this. And this Christianity that has come has nothing to do with Christ. And He has said that, 'You'll be calling Me 'Christ, Christ' and I won't recognize you.'"

Italian police seize $30M from Vatican in probe
Capo | September 21, 2010


A Mafia Convention
VATICAN CITY — Italian authorities seized euro 23 million ($30.18 million) from a Vatican bank account Tuesday and said they have begun investigating top officials of the Vatican bank in connection with a money laundering probe. The Vatican said it was 'perplexed and surprised' by the investigation.

Italian financial police seized the money as a precaution and prosecutors placed the Vatican bank's director general and its chairman under investigation for alleged mistakes linked to violations of Italy's anti-laundering laws, news reports said.

The is probe not the first time the bank — formally known as the Institute for Works of Religion — has faced trouble. In the 1980s, it was involved in a major scandal that resulted in a banker, dubbed 'God's Banker' because of his close ties to the Vatican, being found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London."

"Pope John Paul II has broken his silence on a wave of sex scandals which threaten to undermine the Church's claim to moral authority...

He said these brothers had succumbed to"the most grievous form of evil at work in the world".

Just one paragraph in the 22-page letter was devoted to the issue and the word paedophilia was not mentioned - but it is still the first time the Pope has addressed sexual abuse since a major paedophile scandal engulfed the Roman Catholic Church in the United States.

Other cases of sexual abuse and harassment involving the clergy have also recently come to light across Europe, and in Australia.

Last year the Pope sent an apology by e-mail for a string of injustices committed by clergy in the Pacific nations, which included priests and missionaries forcing nuns to have sex and then abortions."

BBC, Thursday, March 21, 2002




Catholic Church pays victims in sex abuse case

"DALLAS (Reuters) — The Roman Catholic diocese of Dallas settled a landmark sexual abuse case Friday by agreeing to pay a record $30.9 million to 12 former altar boys who were repeatedly assaulted by a priest on church property...

A Dallas jury last year ordered the church to pay $119.6 million to the boys abused by the Rev. Rudolph Kos on hundreds of occasions between 1981 and 1992, but the diocese said that ruling would force it into bankruptcy so both sides negotiated a smaller package...

The boys testified that Kos was like a father to them at first, but then drew them into sexual relationships which began with foot massages and escalated with Kos performing oral sex on them and using their feet to satisfy himself sexually...

Most of the abuse occurred in Kos' living quarters in the rectories of the churches where he worked. His victims said he had food, drink and video games lined up for them and they regularly went there after school or stayed the night.

At the civil trial last year, jurors ruled that senior church officials were guilty of gross negligence, malice, conspiracy and fraud for allegedly ignoring all warnings about Kos and covering up evidence when the boys complained."

"Christian Claude Dancause's nightmare began in the summer of 1966 with a phrase one associates with absolution."Bless me, Father, for I have sinned," he said to Roman Catholic priest Maurice Valois in Sainte-Jérôme and confessed to have masturbated.

It was a confidence that Valois used to get closer to Dancause, now 41, and his two brothers. Throughout that summer he took the three boys to a secluded lake in the Laurentians, where he fondled and fellated them.

The church, while aware of the accusations of impropriety, never once called the police. The three brothers laid a criminal charge against Valois themselves in 1991.

For Dancause, that betrayal of sacred trust was cast in stark relief when it was announced recently that Pope John Paul II had ordered the defrocking of a Boston priest who is alleged to have molested more than 50 children... . One of his earliest alleged victims, John Socco, who lives in the Boston area, was skeptical of the church's intentions. He saw the defrocking as nothing more than a blatant public-relations manoeuvre designed to deflect public anger against an institution that had put up with Geoghan (the Boston priest) for more than 30 years...

The change in attitude throughout the church in Canada was forced after a flurry of stories in the 1980s and early '90s about priests and members of religious orders who molested children — including Valois, the Christians Brothers lay order at Mount Cashel orphanage in Newfoundland, and Quebec-born Luke Meunier, whom the RCMP estimated had molested thousands of children in a serial cross-Canada career before he died eight years ago in a Florida prison while awaiting extradition."

The Gazette, July 5, 1998





"If one had visited Rome in the autumn of the year 1450, one would have found it to be a city exclusively preoccupied with the pope, with his court and papal business...

The imprint of the Great Seal meant fortune or bankruptcy, freedom or prison, civil rights or loss of all rights, the sinews of war or the defense of peace, the creation of beautiful works of art, the working of metal mines and salt mines, capital punishment for criminals and sinners, municipal freedom of cities all over the world, the safety of traveling merchants, the escort of merchant marine ships, the good standing of princes, the legality of kings. With the waxen imprint of the Great Seal on a document, all and anything could be achieved, And it always cost money to have that imprint. The Camerarius was the only one authorized to use it or command its use. After His Holiness, he was the most powerful man in God's Church and in Christendom.

The Camerarius supervised an operation that covered all countries in Christendom. He supervised all the papal household in all its arrangements. The various bureaus of the Camera dealt with the receipting and disbursement of funds, accounting, year-end reports, loans, money transfers, mercantile investment, provisioning of papal armies and papal fleets, financing of papal envoys and missions, and bank deposits at home and abroad.

Under the Camerarius was an army of tax-collectors, revenue officers, couriers, ambassadors, emissaries, and agents who fanned out through the world, for by this time funds poured in continuously from kingdoms, princes, bishops, monasteries, convents, dioceses, and parishes."

"Not since the 16th century, when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg Cathedral, has the Catholic Church faced such a crisis as the one that currently envelopes the American priesthood. Then, as now, the crisis involved widespread corruption among clerics. And if the Catholic Church cannot deal with this current crisis, it will end as the earlier one did—with massive defections from the Church.

One can hardly imagine a more horrifying scandal: Priests, who are revered and trusted figures in their communities, preying on young boys for sex. The news media has treated this story as if it were exclusively about pedophilia—but it is more complicated than that. Most of the victims were not young children, but older boys, and many of the priests involved were homosexual men. The media, by and large, have chosen not to delve into this aspect of the story for fear of being labeled homophobic."

ENTANGLED ON THE WEB by James Hitchcock
(James Hitchcock, a regular columnist for Catholic Dossier, is Professor of History at Saint Louis University.)

"Last year there was a brief sensation over the revelation of the existence of a website called St. Sebastian's Angels, where homosexual priests throughout the English-speaking world regularly exchanged messages. Official reaction to this revelation (more accurately, non-reaction) leads to the inescapable conclusion that activities of this kind are not taken very seriously in hierarchical circles.

Of the public reaction, far more outrage was directed at the group called Roman Catholic Faithful, which discovered the site, than to its contents. Charges of 'sexual McCarthyism,' 'prurience,' 'invasion of privacy,' and other things were immediately hurled at the messengers, often with only the most perfunctory expressions of regret, if that, about the website itself...

It is a culture that is also inherently dishonest. Part of that dishonesty is lying to oneself, so that priests engaged in actions which the Church condemns as sinful somehow think of those very sins as signs of virtue. After the site was made public, Bishop Cawcutt insisted that he had participated only in order to render 'pastoral service' to those on the site and that he always defended the discipline of celibacy. However, on the web he boasted of the sexual attraction he felt towards a curial official in Rome and looked forward to administering Confirmation, where he hoped to see attractive boys.

The St. Sebastian's Web priests believed they were invulnerable and that they had friends in high places, specifically mentioning by name a prominent curial cardinal whom they boasted would protect them from Cardinal Ratzinger. They gave direct empirical evidence that, as has long been suspected, there exists a network of homosexual clergy who protect, support, and even promote one another. The priests on the web made references to their contacts around the country, including chancery officials and others in important positions, and confirmed the suspicion that in some religious orders vocation directors vigorously, even exclusively, recruit homosexuals.

There are many theories as to why Church authorities do not act boldly to root out this pathology, the existence of the clerical homosexual network being itself the most likely explanation. So too is a kind of pre-conciliar clericalism, the instinct to protect one's own, so that parents whose children have been molested by a priest sometimes find that the bishop almost seems to think the offender is the victim. Endless 'compassion' and 'help' have been extended to priests who have abused their office for the most pernicious purposes.

This continues to be the case even though the Church has had to pay many millions of dollars in pedophilia suits. As Michael Rose has pointed out in his study of seminary practices, the psychological tests required of candidates for the priesthood seem incapable of identifying pedophiles but are quite efficient in identifying the theologically orthodox, who are then defined as 'rigid,' one of the signs of their rigidity being precisely their disapproval of homosexuality.

While the Roman Catholic Faithful are denounced as 'right-wing extremists,' scarcely any informed person any longer bothers to deny the phenomenon of clerical homosexuality. Father John Cozzens, rector of the Cleveland diocesan seminary, has published a book calling attention to it, and Father Thomas Reese, editor of the Jesuit magazine America, has observed that the Church is in the dilemma of teaching that homosexual activity is sinful, yet depending on a significant number of homosexual priests to carry on its work.

This is literally scandalous. Catholics must then either adopt a deeply cynical attitude towards their spiritual leaders or conclude that Catholic moral teaching is not intended to be taken seriously. If actions speak louder than words, then it is not possible to claim that the Roman Catholic Church today is upholding Christian moral teaching on this crucial subject."
