“A great-grandmother has been accidentally praying to a figure of Elrond, an elf from The Lord of the Rings, after mistaking it for a figurine of Saint Anthony, every day for years. …The captions on the images translate to: ‘My daughter’s great-grandmother prays to this figure of Saint Anthony every day, but looking more closely…’, before the big reveal was made. …The next day we explained again and she understood and we got her a new figure of Saint Anthony.” –Source
Finally, a Roman Catholic admits in writing that they do in fact pray to those statues. But please don’t blame the Catholic people as they were taught since birth to do this by their priests and so they see no wrong in this. That means they will defend this without wisdom regarding the truth you have. And, depending upon the venue by which you choose to warn them, one can expect that whenever real Christians seeking to help the loyal Catholics see they are being taught by their priests and nuns to perform acts of idol worship the more vocal Catholics among them who study and then teach Roman Catholic theology that is wholly outside Bible Scripture will always chime in and do all they can to protect their now proven Pagan creed by lying outright about praying to the statues in the hopes of belittling the truth we hold so as to save themselves from embarrassment.

(RNS) A strong white evangelical, Catholic and Mormon vote for Donald Trump belied the condemnation many religious leaders had leveled at the tycoon and paved the way for a stunning upset after a long and polarizing campaign.
Preliminary exit polls indicate these religious groups voted for Trump by strong margins — in some cases larger than they had given to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2012.
Christians who described themselves as evangelical and born-again gave Trump 81 percent of their votes, up 3 percentage points from their support for Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton garnered 16 percent of their votes.
Evangelical support for Trump surged even as prominent evangelicals, including Southern Baptist Russell Moore, railed against Trump’s behavior toward immigrants, women and other groups as un-Christian.“Donald Trump made the most full-throated and aggressive appeal to evangelical voters … since Ronald Reagan spoke to the Religious Roundtable in August of 1980,” said Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition. “He made these voters of faith a centerpiece of his campaign.” Continue reading →
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has released a list of 33 prominent conservative Catholic advisers for his campaign, according to reports from Philly.com, a website of The Inquirer and Daily News.
The announcement comes in the midst of a highly contentious election season and at a time when Trump is struggling in the polls among Catholic voters, according to some reports.
Among the released names of advisers are former Republican Sen. Rick Santorum, who ran for president in 2012 and 2016. When he left the race in February, Santorum originally endorsed Sen. Marco Rubio. When Rubio left the race in March, Santorum endorsed Trump, citing the vacant Supreme Court seat as a key reason. Continue reading →
Hillary Clinton campaign representatives and supporters have held two private meetings with top Catholic and evangelical leaders in Washington to discuss the global development policies of a potential Clinton administration.
Several of Clinton’s former State Department advisors organized the meetings via their foreign policy volunteer group, “Idealists for Hillary,” which is working to activate supporters in global development networks. Cindy Huang, a former advisor for State’s Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative, helped to convene the closed-door sessions, each for about a dozen religious leaders. Continue reading →
“The agency has been dubbed ‘Catholics In Action’ because the faithful have occupied so many senior positions. But could their dominance be weakening? …The CIA is the best known of the 17 agencies that comprise the American intelligence community. It has earned itself nicknames like “Catholic Intelligence Agency” and “Catholics In Action”. It’s worth exploring why. No official statistics exist on Catholics in the CIA or any other American intelligence agency. But one interesting clue is the relatively high number of Catholics who have served as director of the agency.” –Source
And why do you suppose they don’t want to have a list of Vatican operatives (Catholics in high office in USA) in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)? Seem obvious to me. Especially since many already know about the information being posted online that confirms the CIA is running ISIS. If the general public knows the Vatican runs the CIA and ISIS it will make it far too easy for the common man (you and me) to make the connection between Islam and the Vatican.Continue reading →
