    Pope Francis has said that those who constantly criticise the Catholic church are “friends of the devil”. Speaking to pilgrims from southern Italy, the pontiff said that defects of the church needed to be denounced so they could be corrected, but that those who condemned “without love” were linked to the devil. “One cannot live a whole life accusing, accusing, accusing, the church,” he said. People who did, he said, were “the friends, cousins and relatives of the devil”. His remarks come as dozens of victims of clerical sexual abuse gathered in Rome ahead of an unprecedented Vatican summit on...

    “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson has come out with a new book that aims to “blow the lid off the lies that are destroying” America.The conservative Christian reality TV star spoke with The Christian Post to talk about the book and how coming to Christ at age 28 helped him leave his sinful life in the past. The 72-year-old patriarch of A&E's hit reality series and the co-owner of the Duck Commander Company released his new title The Theft of America’s Soul on Tuesday.The book purports to expose what he says are 10 essential deceptions and schemes being used by...

    You could say Satanism has undergone a “rebranding” since the 1980s and 90s, when devil-worshipping occultists were supposedly to blame for a series of disturbing crimes – both real and imagined. Since then, in large part due to the founding of “The Satanic Temple” seven years ago in Salem, Massachusetts, Satanism has entered the mainstream of contemporary culture. The clever marketers of this movement have traded notions of goat sacrifices and Black Magic for feel-good sophistry about equality, social justice, and personal freedom. In fact, in a bizarre non sequitur The Satanic Temple claims its mission is not to worship...

    Lady Gaga says: “Fibromyalgia Is Punishment for Joining the Illuminati” Excerpted from Your News Wire – Lady Gaga believes her illness is a physical manifestation of the dark forces that seized control of her body and soul after she joined the Illuminati early in her career, according to production staff from Gaga’s new documentary. The Netflix produced Gaga: Five Foot Two is a warts-and-all documentary portrait of the troubled star – or at least it appears to, with fly-on-the-wall footage of rehearsals, studio sessions, public appearances, private late-night conversations, medical appointments, and multiple tearful breakdowns. Describing scenes from the documentary...

    Pope Francis and the Devil: Misreading the Signs of the Times Despite his penchant for theological innovation, Pope Francis seems to hold some fairly traditional beliefs about the devil. Here’s an example from Gaudete et Exsultate: It is precisely the conviction that this malign power is present in our midst that enables us to understand how evil can at times have so much destructive force… Hence, we should not think of the devil as a myth, a representation, a symbol, a figure of speech or an idea. This mistake would lead us to let down our guard, to grow careless and end...
  • One-world-government Walter Cronkite: ‘I’m glad to sit at the right hand of Satan’

    Fellowship of the Minds ^ | Sept. 17, 2018 | Dr. Eowyn
    In 1999 at the UN, Walter Cronkite declared his support and allegiance to a one-world government. He blamed the refusal of the U.S. Congress to ratify one-world-government treaties on “a handful” of obdurate senators who “pander” to the Christian Coalition and the “religious right wing”. Identifying Pat Robertson as the leader of the Christian Coalition, Cronkite quoted Robertson, that “any attempt to achieve world order before that time must be the work of the Devil.” Cronkite then mocked Robertson by declaring, “I’m glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan.”

    Today’s blog is a little bit ‘out there’ so be forewarned. The EU Parliament Building has a shocking similarity to the Tower of Babel of numerous ancient cultures, which I hope to prove on the balance of evidence was intentional, despite EU protestations to the contrary. This can only lead to a deeper discussion of not only why they would wish this to be the case, but what their intentions for Europe are, and what ideology drives them. You will be shocked at what you are about to discover. Let’s take our first step down the rabbit-hole.

    'Demonic possession is real and victims seeking exorcism should not be ignored': Prominent psychiatrist on the world beyond It is a phenomenon that is on the rise throughout the world: The number of cases of demonic possession - and demands for priests to carry out exorcisms - is, according to multiple sources, soaring. Medical science remains sceptical. However, a Princeton-and-Yale-educated mainstream psychiatrist believes demonic possession is indeed very real - and claims that the majority of Americans agree with him. With 25 years experience in a private psychiatric practice and as a professor at New York Medical College and Columbia...

    Once God gets his hands on you, the devil has LOST another victim - FOREVER! I heard a story years ago about a British college student, a Christian young man in the 1800s, who was having great difficulties with his very sarcastically outspoken atheist philosophy professor. Daily, in the closing minutes of his class, his prof would read some verse or Bible story and then make jokes about the Bible and brutally ridicule anyone of his students who had ever expressed belief in God. On one particular day the teacher singled out the young man and laughingly demanded that he...

    All of those discouraged by the onslaught of fake news should take comfort in knowing that Jesus doesn’t read social media. He reads your heart Now that Pope Francis has let it out of the bag that fake news is “the work of the devil”, can we take it at face value that Fake News King CNN is the spawn of the devil and the New York Times and Washington Post their wicked step sisters? A question that deserves more than LOL. In a speech delivered at the Vatican for World Communications Day, the pontiff said that the “crafty serpent”...

    WAR ON THE SAINTS…And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was...

    A CNN panelist Friday accused Christians who support Donald Trump of making a “deal with the Devil.” WATCH: On “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon,” CNN Political contributor Maria Cardona said, “Look, I was going to say thank God that the president addressed this, Don, because I know that this is what keeps every single American up at night. This is a huge problem in the country. So I’m glad the president is focusing on it. I’m being facetious.” Lemon interrupted, saying, “Political crack to his base. Why do you say that?” Cardona answered: {..snip..}

    Why and How Does Satan Roam the Earth? Msgr. Charles Pope • August 16, 2017 • One of the more puzzling aspects of demonology is the freedom that Satan and demons appear to have in roaming the earth, causing trouble. If the condemned are consigned to Hell for all eternity, why is Satan allowed to wander about outside of Hell? Isn’t he supposed to be suffering in Hell along with his minions and the other condemned? Further, it doesn’t seem that he is suffering one bit, but rather having a grand time wreaking havoc on the earth. How do...

    The devil is a mimic. When God goes high, the evil one always goes low. For instance, SoCal Harvest was held last month in Anaheim, California. Hosted for the 28th year by Pastor Greg Laurie, more than 90,000 worshippers attended the three-day, spirit-filled event at Angels Stadium, during which more than 10,000 souls gave their lives to Christ. One month later, the wicked will gather in Los Angeles for “Adultcon,” which bills itself as a “weekend of sin and fun,” during which the unGodly can give themselves over to sexual depravity “without shame.” Marking its 16th year this upcoming weekend,...

    Who Is Your Real Enemy and What Are His Tactics? Msgr. Charles Pope • November 10, 2016 • In the aftermath of the recent election, our country and our parishes are divided. Some people are hurt and angry while others are jubilant and hopeful. But although we often square off in opposing corners and stare fearfully at each other, we should remember our common enemy, the Devil. There’s a saying that warring brothers reconcile when there’s a maniac at the door; and the Devil is surely a maniacal and cunning opponent.One of the key elements in any battle is...

    The Lies of the Devil and the Empty Promises of the World Msgr. Charles Pope • September 22, 2016 • One of the great illusions under which we labor is that if we only get just one more thing from this world, then we will be happy. Perhaps we think that if we just had a little more money, or a better job, or the latest iPhone, or if we were married to so-and-so, or if we lived in a better neighborhood, then we would be satisfied and content at last. But “at last” never seems to come even...

    Video and Transcript: The Church has reached the tipping point in America where there are more Vatican II Catholics than those born before Vatican II. And it is having a dramatic effect in the Church. The latest research shows that 64 percent — almost two out of every three American Catholics — was born just before the Second Vatican Council or after. The dividing line is the year 1961 (and happens to be my birth year). Two out of every three Catholics therefore have no living memory or experience of the Church how it was before the Council. My generation...

    Beware the Sins of the Pious - A Reflection on the Ways Satan Uses Even Good Things to Entrap Us Msgr. Charles Pope • August 8, 2017 • What is temptation? It is the work of Satan to drag you to Hell. He can read you like a book, play you like piano. Do not exaggerate his power—but do not underestimate it either.Some of Satan’s subtlest work is done in the area of religious observance. There, he can cloak himself in the lamb’s clothing of piety, but, wolf that he is, distort it through excess or defect, thereby destroying...

    Three Characteristics of the Diabolic That Are Widely Evident Today Msgr. Charles Pope • July 26, 2017 • door panel, Pisa BaptisteryThe video at the bottom of this post is of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. It is a fascinating excerpt from a longer presentation he did. In it, he analyzes the diabolic (anything of or relating to the Devil) from several different perspectives. Archbishop Sheen identifies three characteristics of the diabolic by examining the story of the Gerasene demoniac, which is presented in the synoptic Gospels. Here is the beginning of the story as it appears in the Gospel...
