TO POPE HOJO:another example of non-existence of succession:
Benedict IX, born Theophylactus of Tusculum, is known mainly for two things: 1) he held office on three separate occasions, and 2) he is the only pope who ever sold the papacy (to his own godfather, of all people).

Benedict became pontiff at a very young age, thanks to the political prowess of his father, who had managed to get the papacy reserved ahead of time for his son. With little actual training or preparation that qualified him to act as pontiff, Benedict led a highly immoral life, and was accused of various rapes, adulteries, and murders. According to St. Peter Damian, Benedict was “a demon from hell in the disguise of a priest,” and his carousing eventually caused him to be forcefully expelled from Rome.

Benedict managed to regain his throne, but then – surprise, surprise!– he was sidetracked by a prospective marriage (to his cousin) and sold the papal chair for a significant amount of money to his godfather, a priest who named himself Pope Gregory VI. His later repentance and attempt to resume his position created quite a controversy, forcing the German King Henry III to intervene. Benedict was subsequently excommunicated from the church.

“His life as a pope,” wrote Pope Victor III,“was so vile, so foul, so execrable, that I shudder to think of it.”

more for POPE HOJO:Pope John XII,
rn in Rome, the young Octavianus practically had the papacy handed to him on a silver platter. His father, a patrician of Rome, made the Roman nobles swear an oath that at the next vacancy in the papal seat, Octavianus would be elected. Sure enough, when he was only 18 the reigning pope passed away, and Octavianus was chosen as the successor, taking the name Pope John XII.
JETHRO:true succession "rotflmao" sorry can't help it,the churches own history proves what i have been saying all along no such thing as devine apostolic succession,you are following just an ordinary man made church,nothing devine or holy about it,it is corrupt,greedy,perverted church,we know that as fact.if you don't believe me just ask the victims.

Salvation is not based on a denomination or the RCC but in Christ alone. Thay is why it is written:One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries." Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. This title was written on her forehead:

MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.(Revelation 17:1-5 NIV)

"This calls for a mind with wisdom [i.e. it is not something easily identifiable. One must think about it.]. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits." (Revelation 17:9 NIV)

Revelation 17:5

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots, And Abominations Of The Earth.

Revelation 18:4

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues

This was never a Christian teaching until recently. The Bible came from the Church, the Church did not come from the Bible. The Church existed before one word was written by anyone. Now if you had prefaced your little story with something like "This is what man-made ecclesial communities now teach...", there would be little argument. As it is, you're promoting fiction as truth.(Oh, and save your snide comments for your protestant "brothers". You know, the ones who hold a different theology than yours...somewhere in the region of 40,000 different theologies.)

You wrote

THE BIBLE CAME FROM GOD...

QUESTION

ARE YOU SAYING THAT THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS GOD?

Which one of you popes was the sacrifice for our sins?

I GUESS YOUR BIBLE READS..

Gen 1:1 In the beginning -->THE ROMAN CATHOLIC<-- created the heaven and the earth.

You have evidently programmed GOD COMPLETELY out of existence ..

REPLACED HIM WITH YOUR POPE ...GIVING GOD NO CREDIT FOR ANYTHING...

BROUGHT HIM DOWN TO YOUR HEATHENISH LEVEL...AND become TOTALLY

PAGAN.

YOU IGNORE...

Pro 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;

and

lean not unto thine own understanding.

Pro 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.

Pro 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

Statements like this make you a BIGOT.

You remind me of the brainwashed old fat lady mother of Abe, on the BREAKING AMISH show. She SHUNS anyone not like her.

People who pray and worship the very same Jesus you do and you make snide remarks about them, because you were born into a catholic family and they weren't.

BIGOT!

You wonder today why catholicism in the western world is slip sliding away?.........You are one the reasons that is making this happen, with your sinful negative comments about others.

very sad, Amish wannabe.

edited for space.........
Why would you give (guest) negative judgies with what he posted was true?
......Below is the list of SEXUALLY ACTIVE POPES during their pontificate.
.......Pope Sergius III (904–911) was supposedly the father of Pope John XI by Marozia, according to Liutprand of Cremona in his Antapodosis,[25] as well as the Liber Pontificalis.[26] However, this is disputed by another early source, the annalist Flodoard (c. 894-966), John XI was brother of Alberic II, the latter being the offspring of Marozia and her husband Alberic I. Hence John too may have been the son of Marozia and Alberic I. Bertrand Fauvarque underlines that the contemporary sources backing up this parenthood are dubious, Liutprand being "prone to exaggeration" while other mentions of this fatherhood appear in satires written by supporters of late Pope Formosus.[27]
......Pope John X (914–928) had romantic affairs with both Theodora and her daughter Marozia, according to Liutprand of Cremona in his Antapodosis:[28] "The first of the popes to be created by a woman and now destroyed by her daughter".(See also Saeculum obscurum)
.....Pope John XII (955–963)(deposed by Conclave) was said to have turned the Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano into a brothel and was accused of adultery, fornication, and incest (Source: Patrologia Latina).[29] The monk chronicler Benedict of Soracte noted in his volume XXXVII that he "liked to have a collection of women". According to Liutprand of Cremona in his Antapodosis,[25] "they testified about his adultery, which they did not see with their own eyes, but nonetheless knew with certainty: he had fornicated with the widow of Rainier, with Stephana his father's concubine, with the widow Anna, and with his own niece, and he made the sacred palace into a whorehouse." According to The Oxford Dictionary of Popes, John XII was "a Christian Caligula whose crimes were rendered particularly horrific by the office he held".[30] He was killed by a jealous husband while in the act of committing adultery with the man's wife.[31][32][33][34](See also Saeculum obscurum)
.....Pope Benedict IX (1032– became pope in 1044, again in 1045 and finally 1047–1048).[35] He was accused by Bishop Benno of Piacenza of "many vile adulteries."[36][37] Pope Victor III referred in his third book of Dialogues to "his rapes... and other unspeakable acts."[38] His life prompted St. Peter Damian to write an extended treatise against sex in general, and homosexuality in particular. In his Liber Gomorrhianus, Damian accused Benedict IX of routine sodomy and bestiality and sponsoring orgies.[39] In May 1045, Benedict IX resigned his office to pursue marriage.[40]
......Pope Alexander VI (1492–1503) had a notably long affair with Vannozza dei Cattanei before his papacy, by whom he had his famous illegitimate children Cesare and Lucrezia. A later mistress, Giulia Farnese, was the sister of Alessandro Farnese, who later became Pope Paul III. Alexander fathered a total of at least seven, and possibly as many as ten illegitimate children.[41](See also Banquet of Chestnuts)
They are on your list, but for some reason you failed to tell us that they were less than squeeky clean.
Next time HOJO give us ALL! the information.....
UNBELIEVABLE!

What do you base America being a christian nation on?

**********

People came to America at great risk simply to escape those who were killing them for their faith's sake. When they got here, they set up a kingdom of righteousness. Have you never been to Washington, D.C.? Every government building/monument is marked with CHRISTIAN symbols, and scripture verses. The word 'religion' at that time meant Christianity. Freedom of worship was granted to all...and no man was required to accept one 'religion', or another. However, EVERY MAN was required to abide by laws based upon Bible wisdom.

For several years now, we have been bombarded by attempts to captivate America, because her luxury and freedom are coveted by the world. They have not (as yet) used bombs (why destroy the wealth of America? That is what they desire.)

America has swallowed propaganda that aims to destroy the holiness of America, because that is the power of America, and her enemies know that. Sadly, we sleep, thinking that we are too great to fall. Better wake up! The very cultures that attempted to kill our ancestors, now seek to remove us (Israel and America) from the earth.

You don't know it because you are dense, but you are the one fanning the flames of why catholics today leave the church.

You see HOJO, people today, are inclusive, and you still go by the old knuckle dragging era of "lets beat them down"

I said before, you have the markings of someone kicked to the curb by his former protestant followers, and now all you know is lashing out.

Educated people reading your post are embarassed to call themselves catholics. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY! CONGRATULATIONS!
