John Paul II, celebrating Palm Sunday Mass in St. Peter's square on April 16th, 2000 in front of the Egyptian obelisk


The eight spokes (or double cross) emanating from the obelisk in St. Peter's square likely represent the eight divisions of the solar calendar: solstices, equinoxes and quarter cross days. The obelisk originated in Heliopolis, Egypt, the home of the occult Hermetic tradition which St. Augustine preached against.

In looking thru some of your posts/rants, I can only say that you are your own worst enemy. The rants against God's Chosen are so silly and vicious, that any fair-minded person sees right through them.

The rants against God's Chosen ...

There aren't any rants against God's chosen people here. There is commentary on the ideology and behaviour of the self-chosen, however.

The sillyness and viciousness is in the books and traditions of the self-chosen. Any fair minded person can recognize this.

Indeed. And shame on him who sees evil in religious relations with pharisees ...

The more outrageous the stunt, the more shame one should feel for questioning it.

The photo ops in the pope suit with obelisk probably aren't as bad as the subito santo's photo op in his pope suit on the Mount where the Sermon on the Mount was preached. Who could forget the inverted cross hung there as a decoration by our 'elder brothers in the faith'.

Did you mark Benedict's stole for the Feast of the Nativity 2007? All the crosses displayed a Roman gladius athwart them - and this was carried by CNN and every channel. This is probably some signal to his fellow Illuminists. Wonder what it portends.

In Torah, Exodus 32:7-11 we learn that the God of Israel wanted to destroy the Israelites! WHY? The Jewish scribes have attempted to hide the dastardly deed, but Amos 5:25-27 gives us a hint. The Prophets of Israel speak about offering sacrifices to Moloch and we read that Solomon did this in 1 Kings 11:1-11, but we must go to the Babylonian Talmud to get the facts to the case:

MISHNAH. HE WHO GIVES OF HIS SEED TO MOLECH INCURS NO PUNISHMENT UNLESS HE DELIVERS IT TO MOLECH AND CAUSES IT TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE. IF HE GAVE IT TO MOLECH BUT DID NOT CAUSE IT TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE, OR THE REVERSE, HE INCURS NO PENALTY, UNLESS HE DOES BOTH.

Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 64a
Soncino 1961 Edition, page 437

Following the Mishnah is a discussion among the sages. One of the Talmud Sages, Rabbi Ashi, comments as follows:

GEMARA. R. Ashi propounded: What if one caused his blind or sleeping son to pass through, (3) or if he caused his grandson by his son or daughter to pass through? — One at least of these you may solve. For it has been taught: [Any men … that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall he put to death … And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people;] because he hath given of his seed unto Molech. Why is this stated? — Because it is said, there shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire. From this I know it only of his son or daughter. Whence do I know that it applies to his son's son or daughter's son too? From the verse, [And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man] when he giveth of his seed unto Molech [and kill him not: Then I will … cut him off.]
