    Saw this on CNN yesterday afternoon, and then went looking for a place to reference it......

    Jay Hancock's blog: Cardinal Stafford: Obama is 'apocalyptic' - Economic navigation and sightseeing - baltimoresun.com

    You know....for a bunch of people who supposedly speak with God, the Catholics sure mess things up in the translation.

    Kinda like the Christian Coalition has been doing when they said Obama was the Anti-Christ.

    Most catholics have been against abortion all along.

    As for the Anti-Christ, every president I can remember, including GW has been called the anti-christ, why not Obama?

    I think that every president has gotten his share of "anti-christ", and persecution. Obama will be getting a different kind than Bush did and from different sources. Religious and political judgment are far to prevalent in our society. Leave the judgments to God and history.

    But, here's what kinda confuses me.....

    McCain said Obama was the "Chosen One" and also called him "Messiah".

    The Catholic Church, as well as quite a few "good Christians" have called him the Anti-Christ.

    Which is it?

    Well, my opinon is that if he's being called the "messiah" or the "chosen one", then the chances that he IS the anti-christ go up. Remember, he will be accepted as the messiah to begin with, it's only after he takes over the world that the truth about him comes out.

    Not saying he IS the anti-christ, just that with all these people calling him "messiah", he fits the bill more than any of our past presidents.

    Catholics specifically believe there are NO Prophets on earth and as such do not believe anyone gets divine information since Jesus and his apostales.

    They do not talk to God. They prey and hope he listens. They hope they are right about the interpretations they have made over the years as to what Jesus and God want. I would say the Inquisition pretty much puts their success to zero.

    Well......you DO realize that 6 is the number of man, and the three 6's (I think) are more indicative of a consortium of 3 men who will fill that spot.

    Next thing you know, the fanatical fruitcakes are going to try to add HIS name up to 666.

    The right was referencing the fact most Obama supporters know next to nothing about him except he is a good looking BLACK man and can speak well. He won not because of ability or position, he won cause the left successfully portrayed McCain as another Bush.

    Well RGS, that kinda brings up an interesting question then.......

    WTF does the Pope do all day? Isn't he the supposed interface between us and God? If so, how in the hell can he do his job if he can't talk to God.

    BTW......check out my thread on telepathy in Religion and tell me what ya think. It addresses some of this in a round about way. And.....if we can't talk to God, then what is the point of prayer? Because, in order to have a clear conversation (and they keep telling us that we need a "close personal relationship with God and Jesus"), you not only need to talk to the person (prayer), but you need to LISTEN for the answers (meditation).

    And yes.....IMHO prophets and Tzadiks still exist even today.
