IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES. IT WAS THE END OF TIMES

AS though the news of the world wasn't freaky enough, Pope Francis is adding fodder to the already mighty load of end times porn that has overloaded our society from all religious perspectives.. From a report November 15 (I missed it until now), this information:
Francis unequivocally recognized the Islamist ideology behind the attacks, denouncing the use of God’s name to justify the brutal attacks as “blasphemy.”

Commenting on Sunday’s Scripture readings, the Pope said that Jesus’ preaching about the end of the world contains “apocalyptic elements, like war, famine, and cosmic catastrophes.”

“In those days,” Francis repeated, “the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.”

This year has seen a plethora of information concerning the Pope and threats to the Vatican from ISIS terrorists.. Since the French horror last week, the United States State Department has issued a warning to Americans to stay away from the Vatican.. From that report:
The November 18 notice is billed as a “Security Message for U.S. Citizens” regarding a potential for terrorist attacks, and arrived punctually into the email boxes of all Americans registered with the embassy, including that of Breitbart News.

Along with the Vatican, the State Department singles out the Duomo (cathedral) and La Scala opera house in Milan. It goes on to note that general venues “such as churches, synagogues, restaurants, theatres, and hotels” in both Rome and Milan are possible targets as well.

The embassy notice says: “Terrorist groups may possibly utilize similar methods used in the recent Paris attacks,” meaning bombs and assault rifles.

If we make it through December we'll be (hopefully) fine..
