April 16, 2008 was celebrated as a military victory for the Pope over the USA. Notice the Knights of Columbus side by side with the US Army.
This video doesn't show it, but, notice the crawl at the bottom. It says 21 gun solute and both National Anthems. 21 gun solutes honor military victors. The Pope is the military victor of this country.

The entire non-Catholic population TOTALLY missed the real significance behind all that occurred on the White House lawn that day. But the Catholic hierarchy understood it, and so does most of the Catholic population but they are purposely quiet about it so as not to awaken the slumbering Ecumaniacal Evanjellybellies. Otherwise, another Protestant Reformation would result and this nation might just have a fighting chance. Now you know why I am jammed on amateur radio. I'm shouting it from the rooftops and they'll have to kill me to shut me up.
The whole day literally dripped with Military Victory significance for the Pope and nobody talks about it.
Also, 4 days later, on Adolph Hitler's birthday, the Pope paid honor to him on US soil by having the first outdoor Mass at Yankee (very "significant") Stadium. In Protestant England and In Colonial times, Catholics were forbidden to conduct Mass in public. Those days are over! Hitler's birthday is significant because of the Bush's financial link to the rise of Hitler and the Pope's Nazi Party in Germany and the deaths of millions of "heretics", "liberals", and "Jews". Yes, WWII was a RELIGIOUS WAR and the Pope WON. Now they intend to repeat it right here in "HERETIC" USA. And the same people are fomenting it, and the same people will be annihilated. It's Déjà vu all over again. Same stuff, different continent.
On the south lawn of the White House, the United States was presented to the Pope as a birthday gift on his birthday with singing.
To reinforce this notion, the Pope was honored by the Fife and Drum Corp. This demonstration was to signify that the Revolutionary War was a victory of the Papacy when the Colonial Army defeated the Protestant British Empire and gained independence from Protestantism so that Catholicism could flourish here and grow in strength to fight another day. That day is TODAY! Religious toleration has characterized the USA until now, now that the Vatican has destroyed our Protestant Constitution and Bill of Rights and National Sovereignty, religious toleration is at an end and America is becoming Catholic by force. Trouble is, nobody's resisting.
The Pope was serenaded by the singing of "Thy Kingdom Come", and it did right before our very eyes and nobody but Catholics noticed.
The only thing of significance that is missing is the 21 gun solute. Click here
Here is proof of shocking breeches of White House protocol and also US Military protocol.
First, the bushes do not meet this "foreign head of state" at the front door of the White House as required in White House protocol. Instead, the President submissively goes to the airport to receive the Pope on the tarmac. The only thing that is missing here is the traditional "kissing of the earth" when the Pope disembarks. This was omitted because WE warned so many of its implications before his arrival and told people to watch for it. The official excuse was given that Benedict did not kiss the ground because Pope John Paul II already did it during his US visit. In case you don't already know, the first official act of the Pope when he arrives is to kiss the ground as an overt demonstration that he OWNS IT!
Second, the Bush's wear BLACK in compliance with Vatican protocol. Black is required as a sign of submission, penance, worship, and subservience. One does NOT get to meet the Pope in any other color...;
Next, the Bushes never set foot on the red carpet until the Pope does.
Next, in shocking breech of US Military protocol, a US Marine presents the Papal flag.

Address to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association
delivered 12 September 1960 at the Rice Hotel in Houston, TX
Reverend Meza, Reverend Reck, I'm grateful for your generous invitation to state my views.
While the so-called religious issue is necessarily and properly the chief topic here tonight, I want to emphasize from the outset that I believe that we have far more critical issues in the 1960 campaign; the spread of Communist influence, until it now festers only 90 miles from the coast of Florida -- the humiliating treatment of our President and Vice President by those who no longer respect our power -- the hungry children I saw in West Virginia, the old people who cannot pay their doctors bills, the families forced to give up their farms -- an America with too many slums, with too few schools, and too late to the moon and outer space. These are the real issues which should decide this campaign. And they are not religious issues -- for war and hunger and ignorance and despair know no religious barrier.
But because I am a Catholic, and no Catholic has ever been elected President, the real issues in this campaign have been obscured -- perhaps deliberately, in some quarters less responsible than this. So it is apparently necessary for me to state once again -- not what kind of church I believe in, for that should be important only to me -- but what kind of America I believe in.
I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute; where no Catholic prelate would tell the President -- should he be Catholic -- how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote; where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference, and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the President who might appoint him, or the people who might elect him.
I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accept instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials, and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.
For while this year it may be a Catholic against whom the finger of suspicion is pointed, in other years it has been -- and may someday be again -- a Jew, or a Quaker, or a Unitarian, or a Baptist. It was Virginia's harassment of Baptist preachers, for example, that led to Jefferson's statute of religious freedom. Today, I may be the victim, but tomorrow it may be you -- until the whole fabric of our harmonious society is ripped apart at a time of great national peril.
Finally, I believe in an America where religious intolerance will someday end, where all men and all churches are treated as equals, where every man has the same right to attend or not to attend the church of his choice, where there is no Catholic vote, no anti-Catholic vote, no bloc voting of any kind, and where Catholics, Protestants, and Jews, at both the lay and the pastoral levels, will refrain from those attitudes of disdain and division which have so often marred their works in the past, and promote instead the American ideal of brotherhood.
That is the kind of America in which I believe. And it represents the kind of Presidency in which I believe, a great office that must be neither humbled by making it the instrument of any religious group nor tarnished by arbitrarily withholding it -- its occupancy from the members of any one religious group. I believe in a President whose views on religion are his own private affair, neither imposed upon him by the nation, nor imposed by the nation upon him¹ as a condition to holding that office.
I would not look with favor upon a President working to subvert the first amendment's guarantees of religious liberty; nor would our system of checks and balances permit him to do so. And neither do I look with favor upon those who would work to subvert Article VI of the Constitution by requiring a religious test, even by indirection. For if they disagree with that safeguard, they should be openly working to repeal it.
I want a Chief Executive whose public acts are responsible to all and obligated to none, who can attend any ceremony, service, or dinner his office may appropriately require of him to fulfill; and whose fulfillment of his Presidential office is not limited or conditioned by any religious oath, ritual, or obligation.
This is the kind of America I believe in -- and this is the kind of America I fought for in the South Pacific, and the kind my brother died for in Europe. No one suggested then that we might have a divided loyalty, that we did not believe in liberty, or that we belonged to a disloyal group that threatened -- I quote -- "the freedoms for which our forefathers died."
And in fact this is the kind of America for which our forefathers did die when they fled here to escape religious test oaths that denied office to members of less favored churches -- when they fought for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom -- and when they fought at the shrine I visited today, the Alamo. For side by side with Bowie and Crockett died Fuentes, and McCafferty, and Bailey, and Badillo, and Carey -- but no one knows whether they were Catholics or not. For there was no religious test there.
I ask you tonight to follow in that tradition -- to judge me on the basis of 14 years in the Congress, on my declared stands against an Ambassador to the Vatican, against unconstitutional aid to parochial schools, and against any boycott of the public schools -- which I attended myself. And instead of doing this, do not judge me on the basis of these pamphlets and publications we all have seen that carefully select quotations out of context from the statements of Catholic church leaders, usually in other countries, frequently in other centuries, and rarely relevant to any situation here. And always omitting, of course, the statement of the American Bishops in 1948 which strongly endorsed Church-State separation, and which more nearly reflects the views of almost every American Catholic.
I do not consider these other quotations binding upon my public acts. Why should you?
But let me say, with respect to other countries, that I am wholly opposed to the State being used by any religious group, Catholic or Protestant, to compel, prohibit, or prosecute the free exercise of any other religion. And that goes for any persecution, at any time, by anyone, in any country. And I hope that you and I condemn with equal fervor those nations which deny their Presidency to Protestants, and those which deny it to Catholics. And rather than cite the misdeeds of those who differ, I would also cite the record of the Catholic Church in such nations as France and Ireland, and the independence of such statesmen as De Gaulle and Adenauer.
But let me stress again that these are my views.
For contrary to common newspaper usage, I am not the Catholic candidate for President.
I am the Democratic Party's candidate for President who happens also to be a Catholic.
I do not speak for my church on public matters; and the church does not speak for me. Whatever issue may come before me as President, if I should be elected, on birth control, divorce, censorship, gambling or any other subject, I will make my decision in accordance with these views -- in accordance with what my conscience tells me to be in the national interest, and without regard to outside religious pressure or dictates. And no power or threat of punishment could cause me to decide otherwise.
But if the time should ever come -- and I do not concede any conflict to be remotely possible -- when my office would require me to either violate my conscience or violate the national interest, then I would resign the office; and I hope any conscientious public servant would do likewise.
But I do not intend to apologize for these views to my critics of either Catholic or Protestant faith; nor do I intend to disavow either my views or my church in order to win this election.
If I should lose on the real issues, I shall return to my seat in the Senate, satisfied that I'd tried my best and was fairly judged.
But if this election is decided on the basis that 40 million Americans lost their chance of being President on the day they were baptized, then it is the whole nation that will be the loser, in the eyes of Catholics and non-Catholics around the world, in the eyes of history, and in the eyes of our own people.
But if, on the other hand, I should win this election, then I shall devote every effort of mind and spirit to fulfilling the oath of the Presidency -- practically identical, I might add, with the oath I have taken for 14 years in the Congress. For without reservation, I can, "solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution -- so help me God
