Jeffress Says Satan Rules Catholicism
Catholic League ^ | 10/12/2011 | n/a

Posted on 10/12/2011 12:03:22 PM PDT by Pyro7480

Last Friday, Rev. Robert Jeffress, the Dallas pastor who introduced Gov. Rick Perry at the Values Voter Summit, spoke derisively about the Mormon faith of Mitt Romney, making the case that “Mormonism is a cult.” Two days later, he chided Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism as “false religions.”

Last year, Rev. Jeffress said the Roman Catholic Church was the outgrowth of a “corruption” called the “Babylonian mystery.” He continued, “Much of what you see in the Catholic Church today doesn’t come from God’s word. It comes from that cult-like pagan religion. Isn’t that the genius of Satan?”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue offered these remarks today:

Where did they find this guy? When theological differences are demonized by the faithful of any religion—never mind by a clergyman—it makes a mockery of their own religion. Rev. Jeffress is a poster boy for hatred, not Christianity.

Nevermind the people who put this up. This is the guy's voice: Jeffress: Satan Behind Catholic Church

And then, there's this: Mitt Romney asks Rick Perry to disavow pastor; Perry says no.

I wonder what his screen name is on the Religion forum.

Jeffres is a nutjob. He is as extreme to the right as Rev. Wright is to the left.

I’m done with Perry. I don’t need to put up with anymore bigots who hate Catholics.

This is what can happen to you when you take your ability to understand and interpret religious matters, a bit too seriously.

That kind of comparison is made in churches all the time by well-intentioned ministers. I think most Catholics, especially in the South, have learned to take it in stride, shake their heads, and smile. After all, you may be walking side by side with the same minister & his congregation in a Respect Life march the next weekend, or collaborating on a crisis pregnancy center.

Me too, but I don’t consider them bigots that hate catholics. In my case, they have serious problems with the Catholic organization and the Pope specifically, and have some good scripture references to back it up.

IOW, they make a fairly reasonable case. I don’t agree with them, but they are not the crazies some would have you believe. Then again, my family is not yours. :-D

Jeffress is irrelevant.

Why is everyone making a big deal of this man, thereby trying to taint the reputation of a Republican presidential candidate?

(FWIW, seeing the Roman Catholic Church as a corruption of biblical/historical Christianity is not a “fringe” belief.)

Actually, I’ve read quite a bit about “mystery babylon”. He is not alone in what he says and these folks do make a strong case. I am not sympathetic to their claims only because the case cannot be proven or disproven. My take is that in the end we will find out. I take it all on a case by case basis. As more evidence presents itself I will solidify my position.

I think those that study His word and follow the fruit of these various trees things will see things pretty clearly. And spiritual Christianity is all about ones personal relationship with Christ, not what others believe.

So now that this Hee Haw has gone after Romney, perhaps he’ll grace us with his opinion on Rick Santorum, a known practitioner of the Great Babylonian Fish Cult.

This guy should be a Democrat. A jackass suits him well

I’ve been studying this stuff since the mid-1980’s. I’ve seen a lot of it. Some of them ARE nutcases, but others make strong claims that I happen to disagree with.

I cannot pass judgement on this guy until I read what he said in context as opposed to a couple of sentences out of context. He may be one of the crazies, but I’ve gotta see what his actual points were first.

Done with Perry? You haven’t been a Perry man to begin with. You know I have friends I consider a bit of a wacko, but they are friends. I haven’t adopted their beliefs in fact, I’ve tried to point out the error of their beliefs. Rubber stamping Perry cause he is a friend of this man is a bit strange. Perry didn’t ask this man to introduce him...the Values Voter Conference did.

If you haven’t been paying attention, the Mormon comments by Jeffress are making national headlines, and this will be soon be joining that.

I’m not crazy about either Perry or Romney, but I try to remember that a HUGE part of being president is MANAGING the ship-of-state. What we sometimes call “putting the grown-ups back in charge”. I think they both have the potential to be decent managers of the country, but I shure would prefer someone who shares my ideology, like Cain. This is why I think the two party system sucks. You wind up either being represented, or dissed, and even if the incumbent is the same party, he may not represent you.

Oh, and we need a lot more congressional districts than 435. Every time a new census comes out, each congresscritter represents more people, which means he represents each of them less.

It makes it a “debatable” belief. You know, kinda like someone’s belief in who should be president. ;-)

Indeed. Read the Westminster Confession of Faith, the standards for Biblically orthodox Presbyterian Churches.

http://www.pcanet.org/general/cof_contents.htm

Rev. Jeffress’s statements are rather mild in the history of the Protestant/Roman Catholic divide of the last five centuries.

Did you see this?

Perry isn't backing down. Perry spokesman Mark Miner told the Associated Press Tuesday that Perry would not disavow Jeffress.

"The governor does not agree with every single issue of people that endorsed him or people that he meets," Miner said.

Just like I don’t need to put up with bigots who hate Mormons! Neither has a place in a political debate!
