"The devil in the Catholic Church is so protected now that he is like an animal protected by the government; put on a game preserve that outlaws anyone, especially hunters, from trying to capture or kill it. The devil within the Church today is actually protected by certain Church authorities from the official devil-hunter in the Church — the exorcist. ...
To the question, 'Are there men of the curia who are followers of Satan?' Milingo responded, 'Certainly there are priests and bishops. I stop at this level of ecclesiastical hierarchy because I am an archbishop, higher than this I cannot go.' Milingo cited papal statements to back up his charges. 'Paul VI said that the smoke of Satan had entered into the Vatican.'"
-- Archbishop Milingo
The Inverted Cross
or mockery of the Christian cross."
The Upside Down Cross - Symbolizes mockery and rejection of Jesus. Necklaces with upside down crosses are worn by many Satanist's, and can be seen on Rock-n-Roll singers and their album covers. The Death Metal rock band, Deicide, has songs about the joy of killing Jesus.
I call unto you.
I deny your faith.
Live in the face of emptiness, yet
You survive the details.
I embrace your desire,
And elevate violence to a sacred deed.
You equip for immortality:
I reap your soul for eternity
The following excerpt came from the Ozzy Osbourne Biography/FAQ (3/2000)The Esoteric Symbol Library says: "The inverted pentagram is generally a symbol of evil (in much the same way that the inverted cross is)... "
The record company chose to put an upside down cross on the gatefold of the album and thus people readily associated the band (Black Sabbath) with Satanism. The band knew nothing about this and did not want the upside down cross, however they backed down from the record company's "wiser and higher" marketing methods.
In his article, The Kingdom of Satan, Professor J.S. Malan says this about the inverted cross:
4.7 Opposition against the cross of Jesus and the Christian church
The kingdom of darkness is fanatically opposed to the church of Jesus Christ and tries to question, discourage, deceive, infiltrate, oppress, forbid, or destroy it in every possible way. Some of the symbols that they use in this campaign are the following:
The inverted cross - This cross is not broken, but turned upside down. It indicates the rejection of Jesus Christ and contempt for the gospel of salvation. Inverted symbols are typical of the opposite values pursued by Satanists. People who are sometimes sacrificed to Satan on Black Sabbath are crucified upside down in accordance with this tradition.
[Editor's note: I've come across worse items showing the inverted cross but could not bring myself to even present the titles here. Ephesians 5:12]
The pope got off his death bed for this event... that upside down cross is a message to every single freemason/Satanist/Lucifer worshipping... freak... that the show is on... Satan has been welcomed into the Holy land... get ready for a false prophet!
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
