Don't miss what the fundie blogs are saying about the Pope's visit! The Reformed Reader says: "What is the proper term for this? Undoing the Reformation? Abandoning the Reformed faith?..." Troyspace gives us "Comment on Antichrist Pope and 'Closet Catholic' U.S. President" (note role of Bavarian -- ! -- Illuminati, and of Skull & Bones). A site called Romans 5:9 offers a poem. And The Independent Conservative says "antichrist One has landed" and promises to show you "Why This Event is Nothing to Cheer About!" Why, this Pope has even visited synagogues -- they've got it on tape!

Like they say, the goof is out there.
