The Catholic Church has been in an uproar for quite some time and its institutional hierarchy has been beset in scandal since before the fall of Rome and the beginning of the Holy Roman Empire ushering in what history calls The Dark Ages. Yet, most perishers and worshipers remain loyal to their birth taught or chosen faith whether practicing or not. The same holds true for Protestants of every denomination and all the Eastern Orthodox branches “…for many be called, but few chosen.” (Matt. 20:16)
From Missing Links, Chapter VI:
…Revelation 17 describes the woman (church) that rides the beast. Kings have fornicated with her and people have been deceived by her doctrines. Can you think of any church head or leader who is arrayed in purple and scarlet colour and decked (gilded) with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her (its) hand? MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT is the false church, and as THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS has many daughters. Churches that hold to her doctrines and traditions, which are the ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH, are also harlots. [Like mother, like daughter.] The sheep that are led astray by their false doctrinesare her victims….
Most ministries and their pastors today are just hirelings in the occupational field of corporate sheep herding. The sheep are feed the doctrines and traditions passed down by its Board of Directors and/or CEO’s. When the sheep decide that the food isn’t to their liking, they reinvest into a different stock. Church attendance fluctuates with the market. The ever-changing diets of the sheep just keeps them roaming, roaming, roaming; however, just keep those sheep a Roman. Yo Ho!
From the article:
Writes Church near ‘collapse,’ U.S. seminaries are centers of promiscuous homosexuality, perversion
- Pope Emeritus Benedict’s posthumous book revealed the church leader’s thoughts about multiple scandals the church has suffered over several decades regarding homosexuality, porn and pedophilia.
- Benedict blamed the “sexual revolution” of the 1960s for a “collapse” of the Catholic church’s foundation on many teachings and the rampant sexual abuse discovered in later years.
- The book was entrusted to Dr. Elio Guerriero, who also wrote Benedict’s biography, to be released only after the former pope’s death.
A posthumous book written by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, the former head of the Catholic church, claimed that pornography, homosexual clubs and pedophilia had taken root within the church.
Benedict died on Dec. 31, 2022, at the age of 95 after struggling with a “respiratory illness” for several weeks. Nearly a month after his death, the Italian publishing company, Mondadori, released a series of works over the weekend entitled “What Is Christianity?” that contained theological essays written after Benedict stepped down from his position as pope in 2013, illustrating his concerns about issues of homosexuality, pedophilia and pornography in the church.
In the book, Benedict discusses a wide range of theological questions from communion, to the Catholic church’s history with Israel and the Jewish people, in addition to what he describes as “moral issues,” in the fifth chapter. Benedict discusses the effect that pornography has had on the church and expressed extreme displeasure that porn was often rampant in seminaries….
As a former Roman Catholic who has rediscovered the Hebrew roots of Christian faith, and how this perspective profoundly enriches the Reformers’ doctrines of “the priesthood of all believers” and the absolute supremacy of Scripture over church traditions, I have serious differences with many aspects of Catholicism, but I nevertheless recognize that a great many Catholics are authentic, even exemplary Christians by biblical standards. (If, as I believe, salvation truly is by faith alone in Christ alone, whatever other things one believes in – even false doctrines and rituals – are merely sanctification issues that do not affect one’s justification: important but not spiritually fatal.)
One such exemplary Christian is the recently deceased Joseph Ratzinger whose final service to Christendom was in the role of Pope Benedict (Emeritus). His “Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons,” published in October of 1986 when he was “Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,” is in my view the gold standard of guidance for Christians in approaching the issue of homosexual sin in the church. Importantly, his letter was not a set of mere suggestion to the Bishops but a controlling doctrinal mandate, issued just six months after the Catholic-dominated U.S. Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling in Bowers v. Hardwick (forcefully rejecting the decades-long effort to make homosexual sodomy a civil right) – these two documents representing an attempt to establish a global bulwark against the already massive and growing LGBT assault on Judeo-Christian civilization being masterminded by principalities and powers in the United States.
Recently, Catholic writer and editor Rod Dreher of The American Conservative published a stunning article titled “Benedict XVI: It is The Time of Antichrist,” sub-titled “In 2015, BXVI wrote letter to Catholic statesman Vladimir Palko, urging prayer against the ‘expanding power of the Antichrist.'” The short missive was a note of appreciation for Palko’s book “The Lions Are Coming: Why Europe And America Are Heading for a New Tyranny” (not available in English). Palko’s personal embargo of the letter ended with the Benedict’s death, and Dreher is apparently the first to reveal its contents, the essence of which is just one sentence long:
“As one sees the power of Antichrist spreading, one can only pray that the Lord will give us mighty shepherds to defend His Church against the power of evil in this hour of need.”
In 2015 when this letter was written, Benedict had been in seclusion/captivity in Vatican City for over a year after what I and many Catholic leaders and lay-persons believe was a forced abdication orchestrated by Barack Obama to install his ideological ally Jesuit Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina (who became Pope Francis in March of 2013). My detailed arguments supporting this conclusion are published here:
One especially significantly fact is that this Vatican coup occurred shortly after a report Pope Benedict had commissioned finally confirmed the existence of a powerful “gay mafia” in the Vatican (an open secret that had been publicly hinted at by his predecessor Pope John Paul).
I have been unapologetic in stating I believe Barack Obama is both a homosexual and (still) a prime candidate for the Antichrist, and that I believe the widespread societal embrace of so-called “gay pride” will be the issue that triggers the wrath of God against the world under the reign of the Antichrist. I believe Obama is the puppeteer controlling Joe Biden and is thus the choreographer of today’s expanding geopolitical chaos. And we must never forget that it was the tag-team of Obama and Pope Francis that launched the current globalist blueprint for one-world government, the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” at the United Nations in 2015.
Following a private meeting with Obama on Sept. 23 of that year, Francis gave an unprecedented address to Congress the next day (gushingly reported), and then on the 25th officially launched the “2030 Agenda” with a speech to the U.N. General Assembly. It is in the context of these events, whose Vatican City preparations began long before Francis’ trip to the U.S., that Pope Benedict penned his Antichrist warning.
Brother Dreher may or may not hold these conclusions, but his article implicitly bolsters them. He writes, “Benedict wrote about the Antichrist in his first book about Jesus of Nazareth. It was the part where he discussed the temptation of Christ by the devil in the desert, where ‘the devil appeared as a theologian,’ in Ratzinger’s words. The Pope also recalled Solovyov’s famous Legend of the Antichrist, which is a short fictional prose where the Antichrist … appears … as a great humanist, he fights against hunger. … Benedict uses this only as an illustration that even ‘interpretation of the Scriptures can become a tool of the Antichrist.’ … And he reminded that the Antichrist does not have to look hideous, that he does not have to be recognized as evil, but he can appear acceptable, benevolent, as a humanist.”
These are not casually chosen words by the pope emeritus, which I take to mean he may have shared my opinion that the religion of the Antichrist is not reflected in some crude and obviously demonic institution like the clownish and conservative-punking LGBT culture-war instrument they call the “Temple of Satan,” but is in fact Secular Humanism – the perfection of Satanic delusion in beguiling doctrinal form whose deity is man himself (a la the serpent’s prophecy in Genesis 3:1-5 and God’s counter-action in Genesis 3:22-24) and whose mind-enslaved adherents deny its beliefs are religious.
Dreher ends his article by drawing special attention to the man I believe may be the actual False Prophet of Revelation, the “married” homosexual transhumanist and World Economic Forum philosopher-in-residence, Yuval Noah Harari. Interestingly, I went public with that hypothesis in a WND column titled “Is this transhumanism guru the false prophet of revelation?” in which I tied together the three key elements of this current piece: the centrality of LGBT themes to the Antichrist agenda, the contention that Secular Humanism is the perfection of Satanic religion in the last days, and the starring role of transhumanism in the final insurrection against Judeo-Christian civilization, triggering the second coming of Christ.
I am thus taking Dreher’s illuminating report on Pope Benedict’s perspective of the Antichrist as Holy Spirit confirmation of my conclusions (whether or not he would agree with them), and urging my fellow remnant Christians of all confessions to ponder how this departure from/refinement of traditional eschatology might influence our individual and collective response to current events.

KJV(i) 1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon 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. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. 9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, 10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. 11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, 13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! 19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. 20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. 22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; 23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Come out of Babylon for her judgement is near!
How many popes of yesteryear went to their grave with the secrets of homosexuality! I was brought up catholic and it didn’t take long to start asking questions of the different practices they perform. You write the following and it is so true of the catholic church and her daughter denominations in a nutshell: THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS has many daughters. Churches that hold to her doctrines and traditions, which are the ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH, are also harlots. [Like mother, like daughter.] The sheep that are led astray by their false doctrines are her victims….
Stay the course!
