Alleged pope incarnate excommunicatedBy Marc • Dec 15th, 2005 • Category: In Other News...., Satan Laughs
A Roman Catholic bishop here has excommunicated members of a communal sect whose leader allegedly claims to be a manifestation of the late Pope John Paul II.
Sect leader Edwin Gonzalez Concepcion and his followers can no longer receive communion or participate in church activities, according to the order issued by Mayaguez Bishop Ulises Casiano Vargas.
Surely there’s some nice Buddhist temple in Puerto Rico they could go to.
Gonzalez, a former firefighter in the town of Aguada, has told his followers that he became a manifestation of John Paul when the pope died in April and that Pope Benedict XVI is the “antichrist,” according to the order, which priests in the diocese read to their congregations Sunday.
UM….Right…….I really don’t think Pope John Paul the Great would say that about Papa Ben.
The bishop also alleged that another sect leader, Gladys Miranda, claims she is the Virgin Mary, and that followers of the group make it hard for parishioners to receive communion by lying face-down in the aisle.
What is in the water in this place?????
Michelle Arnold has a great post at jimmyakin.org about this too. Potato head pope….LOL!
