Vatican: Antichrist is a Vegetarian
A leading candidate to succeed Pope John Paul II has warned that the Antichrist is already among us and was most likely now disguised as a philanthropist supporting creeds like vegetarianism, animal rights and pacifism.
|A leading conservative candidate to
succeed Pope John Paul II has warned that the Antichrist foreseen in
the Book of Revelations is already among us.
Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, 71, said that the modern Antichrist, identified in the Book of Revelations as a seven-headed beast, was most likely now disguised as a philanthropist supporting creeds like vegetarianism, animal rights, pacifism, and advocating dialogue with Orthodox or Anglican believers.
But his true aim was to undermine the Catholic church, the Cardinal argued.
As Archbishop of Bologna, one of Italy's most populous and richest dioceses, Cardinal Biffi is a clear contender for the papacy, given that his fellow cardinals may well decide to select an Italian as successor to the present Pope.
However, Cardinal Biffi is also deeply conservative in his views and his remarks are likely to offend some progressive Catholics.
As the Pope becomes frailer, questions
about the succession are more pressing
He was speaking at a conference of academics in
Bologna last weekend, on the 19th century Russian mystic Vladimir
Solovyov, who predicted horror and disaster in the 20th century.
