Before thinking that the man is a nut (which it can be possible of course!), you must know that the Pope went to visit him in prison some years ago and they talked in private for hours. The Pope also published a statement some weeks ago saying that the man acted for some mysterious purposes and someone send him to shoot.
it sounds like there was a prediction or something made a long time ago the gave the number of popes till the antichrist
just that it happened in the middle of everything else going
It feels like all the loose ends are being tied up.
Conclussion, the pope ain't gonna say diddly to who the Anti is nor when the last generation is if he's been reading the Book.
there by destroying the last shred of belief in the Catholic Religion when he comes out wrong.
Then the rebuilt Roman Empire will be recognized by all and the destruction of the new Roman Empire can commence according to biblical prophacies.

How can a roman empire be rebuilt if none of the offices, society, and institutions of it have been around for a thousand or so years? Also, why isn't the orthodox church a successor to the roman empire? Its the byzantine church, and the roman emperors were orthodox christians, or at least not catholics.
No doubt, after all his living so long has dashed the hopes of many to sit on the throne. My guess is that they won't be electing another young un in the near future because of this, and of course the tongues will start wagging about the prophecy coming true after the old codger dies after a short term, even if that short term is 5 years. And of course if the next has nothing to do with olives, skin colour; loves olive oil; had an olive tree in his backyard as a child; read popeye comics etc., they'll just be adjusting the doomsday prophecy once more, forever waiting for something that is never going to happen.
Originally posted by Cornelia Some cardinals would like to see him dead (his was a long pontificate), maybe because they have some hopes of being elected as the new Pope. Some other, are afraid of his death because they know they'll lose power.

Yeah. Go a., Pope, name the Antichrist so some other anti-Christian/Catholic can sue the Vatican for something else.
