Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied.
-Otto von Bismarck
The pope is a head of state, a politician, and not just a religious leader. He again made that abundantly clear with his preposterous claim to Yves Gazzo, new head of the delegation of the Commission of European Communities to the Holy See.: "when the Church recalls the Christian roots of Europe, she is not seeking a privileged status for herself " (Pope Urges Europe to Recall Christian Values).
Those who know history and Bible prophecy can testify: Benedict XVI told a bald-faced lie!
The Roman Catholic Church is patient. It has ruled over Europe many times and is determined to forge the European Union in its own image. The pope, the Vatican, the Roman Catholic Church, aim to give life, to restore the beast of the "Holy Roman Empire" and dominate Europe first, then the world, with its blueprint for world peace.
The pagan pope's lofty references to the "Church," Europe's "Christian heritage" and "the decidedly Christian inspiration of the founding fathers of the European Union," are thinly veiled references to Catholicism and Catholics, as duly noted in Papal Rome and the European Union.
The Bavarian pope can cloak his agenda in pretty platitudes, a wolf in sheep's clothing, professing peace while preparing for war - "aggressive Catholicism" - but we will never forget the pope's white robes are stained with the blood of many martyrs! The vile Vatican is proud and stubborn and won't stop until it has its way with Europe's imminent president (foretold to become a world dictator, a wannabe divine emperor) and his top ten European rulers, assuming what she believes to be her rightful place: a privileged status, offering counsel and support to the powers that be (and will be).
