Why would you post such hate filled drivel here?

Do you really think that the Catholic Church contains "ELEMENTS OF THE PAGAN BABYLONIAN MYSTERY RELIGION?" (not my emphasis)

Do you really think that the Catholic faith is "A COUNTERFEIT OF CHRISTIANITY?" (Not my emphasis)

Do you really think that the Catholic Church is "Synagogue of Satan" as this website declares?

Do you really think that the Papacy is the anti-Christ, as this website declares?

Do you really believe that the cross is the mark of Cain, as this website declares?

Do you really believe that a cross or crucifix is the mark of the beast" " This "mark" could also refer to a sculptured figure or figurine -- such as a CROSS, or a small crucifix! In other words, it IDENTIFIES ONE AS BELONG TO CAIN and his modern representatives -- the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH!" That's what this website screeches.

Do you really believe this: "The third and last of these three enemies of the Kingdom of YEHOVAH God is Catholicism"?

So the faith that printed the Bible for us is one of the three greatest enemies of God? So the faith that led Mother Teresa to care for the impoverished through out the world was one of the three enemies of the Kingdom of God? So the faith that has led the Catholic Church to stand alone in its unwavering defense of God's gift of life, from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death, is one of the three greatest enemies of God? So the faith that has led the establishment of schools, orphanages and hospitals through out the world, is one of the three greatest enemies of God? So the faith the produced the Sistine Chapel, Notre Dame and the works of Palestrina and Byrd is one of the three greatest enemies of God? So the faith that gave us Project Rachel is one of the three greatest enemies of God?

As of 1994:
"The Church run 5,478 Hospitals with 4,500 million people treated, 14,806 Dispensaries, 793 Leprosariums, 27,281 Homes for the aged homeless and handicapped, 7,102 Orphanages, 9,293 Nurseries, 97,823 Special Centers for Social Services, 8,216 Matrimonial Advice Centers... and practically "billions" attended in their "homes", for sickness, aged, children, emotional problems, marriages, drugs, alcohol...

- The Catholic Church in 1992 run 52,828 kindergartens with an attendance of 5 million students, 80,612 Elementary and Primary Schools with 25 million students, 31,711 Secondary Schools with 13 million students, and 2 million students in its 6,400 Colleges and Universities.

- In the USA, in 1993, the Church run 606 hospitals with 54 million patients treated; 1,592 Specialized Homes; 188 Orphanages took care of 75,890 children; 2,115 Centers for Social Services helped 20 million people... it run 7,136 Elementary Schools with 2 million students, 1,248 High Schools with 603,679 students, 227 Colleges and Universities with 643,127 students, 96 Schools for Handicapped with 8,764 students (The Official Catholic Directory, 1994)." This is the work of one of the three greatest enemies of God?

Should I go on?

Did you bring this here to attack your fellow Christians? To hurt them? To insult them? Or do you really believe what this website proclaims?

I don't necessarily agree with everything in the article or on the website. I "Asked" (I don't use google) the terms "Peter" and "Rome" and came across this article. I did it because it was germane to another topic being discussed on the board...whether or not Peter was the first pope. It presents an alternative. I think the article accomplished it without being "hate filled"...although I understand that it's a challenge to those that believe differently.
