Sinister Sites – St. John The Divine Cathedral



The destruction of New York city (including the Twin Towers) sculpted right on the building… Strange occult symbols on the floor… Weird rituals being performed in the sanctuary… Home of the Temple of Understanding which admittedly seeks to instate a new world religion… This cathedral is definitively “different”, as some people might say. But the “difference” lies in the fact that the cathedral is in fact a temple for the occult elite. I personally couldn’t care less about each individual’s beliefs, but to trick unsuspecting church goers into an occult house of worship is nothing less than Evil.

“The pagan intellectuals reclothed their original ideas in a garment of christian phraseology but bestowed the keys of the symbolism only upon those duly initiated and bound to secrecy”
– Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Background and History of the Cathedral

This unfinished building has been claimed as being the world’s largest cathedral. It is realistic to maintain such high aspirations when your sources of funding include tycoons like JP Morgan and prominent figures like the Grand Master of the Masons of the state of New York. The completion of the cathedral was such a prized accomplishment for the Freemasons that it was featured on the front page of “Masonic World” of March 1925.


The article states:

“It is particularly fitting that the Masons, who were the principal builders of cathedrals and churches during the greatest cathedral-building period, should now have a prominent part in the movement to build America’s greatest cathedral (…) Little need be added to the story of Freemasonry during the cathedral-building period; its monuments are its best history, alike of its genius, its faith and its symbols.”

The article openly admits that masonic cathedrals represent the best legacy of the Brotherhood and the symbolism is prominently showcased. The masses are however too ignorant to recognize the meanings of the art, so they just stare at them, thinking “it’s pretty nice”.

Freemasonry and Occultism

As you might know, Masonry has been, through the ages, the keeper of the “ancient mysteries”, which are occult and esoteric teachings only communicated to the initiates. I will not explain here the mystery religion as it takes several years of studies to get some understandi, however, however say that the occultists draw their teachings from ancient Egyptian, Babylonian, Kaballah and Gnostic cultures, who predate by many centuries the Christian era. Secret societies have been forced to hide the true nature of their philosophies in a veil of Christianity to avoid persecution by the Church. Freemasons and their fellow organisms, the Rosicrucian Order and the Knights Templar have all been accused of devil worship and idolatry in Europe.

While many low-level Freemasons may be practicing Christians, those looking to reach higher degrees within the Brotherhood are required to study the tenants and the philosophies of the Mystery Religion.  Freemasons do not necessarily seek for the world to embrace their brand of spirituality, as it is strictly reserved to the initiates. However, people in high places, who often happen to be Masons are seeking to steer the population towards a “dumbed-down” version of their paganism, as you will read later.

The Symbols

The impressive exterior of the cathedral provokes a humbling sensation at whom gazes at it. But what are you humbling yourself to? We’ll examine the details of the artwork.

1- The Apocalyptic Pillar

On the western facade of the building, stonemasons have sculpted numerous scenes that seem oddly out of place for a Cathedral. The most striking one is the chilling depiction of the destruction of New York city and its landmarks.

Twin towers collapsing

The scene above was done in 1997, four years before the destruction of the Twin Towers.  Other recognizable skyscrapers are the Chrysler Building and the Citigroup center.

Apocalyptic New York

The scene above might be unsettling for New York residents. We see the Brooklyn bridge crumbling with cars and buses falling into agitated waters. At the right is the Statue of Liberty, which seems to be sinking in the water. Beneath this horrifying prophecy is the New York Stock Exchange, with people trading goods around it.


So, what is the purpose of this weird carving? Well, the first thing that needs to be mentioned is the actual St. John the Divine is credited for writing the Book of Revelation in the Bible, which describes in symbolic imagery the events of the apocalypse. Occultists believe that the Book of Revelation has been hermetically coded to reveal its true meaning to the initiates of esoteric teachings. This scene, carved on the west entrance of the cathedral, depicts New York as being “Babylon the Great”, the city who gets completely destroyed by the wrath of God. The Book of Revelation mentions:

“Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demons
and a haunt for every evil spirit,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

-Book of Revelation 18

The artists might be on to something because there is indeed numerous similarities between the actual New York city and the description of Babylon the Great in the Bible.  The Book of Revelation mentions:

  1. A “Great Prostitute” who sits on many waters – peoples, multitudes, nations and languages – holding a golden cup. She rules over the kings of the Earth. = The Statue of Liberty
  2. Merchants of the Earth who grew rich of her “excessive luxuries”, weeping because nobody buys their goods anymore = New York Stock Exchange

“The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn and cry out:
” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city,
dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet,
and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!
In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’

– Book of Revelation, 18

Knowing that, still today, over 70% of the world’s capital goes through the NYSE, we understand why the building was depicted on the apocalyptic pillar. It represents the “financial” aspect of the Book of Revelation, where it repeatedly refers to rich merchants and trading goods.

So, a landmark of NYC, the St. John the Divine Cathedral, predicts in vivid detail the destruction of its home city. Pretty unusual. Under the rendering of the NYSE, we a skeleton and strange creatures, who seem to represent death and destruction. Is this some sort of prophecy?

2- Sculpture

Side of the tired moon
Pretty disgusting body


This sculpture, which basically symbolizes the struggle between Good and Evil, features numerous elements we can find in paganism: Sun worship, mythical creatures and sun versus moon duality. Called “Fountain of Peace”, the sculpture borrows the fantastic, bizarre and distorted art style of the Grotesque. All sorts of animal creatures are emerging from a smiling sun, which represents the basic paradigm of Sun Worship (the Sun as giver of life).  The idol points to the east, an ancient pagan tradition. There is also weird stuff on the sculpture like a DNA symbol (a DNA symbol also appears at the entrance of the Cathedral). We all know how genetic modification is as Christian as it gets. We can also find a quote of John Lennon saying “…one day the world will live as one”. Think this is spooky? Read on.

Strange Rituals

A) Procession of the Ghouls

Every year, at Halloween, St. John the Divine is the host of a strange event called “The Grand Procession of the Ghouls”. It is basically a parade taking place right inside the sanctuary of the Cathedral where people dressed in costumes of demons, ghouls, monsters and other creepy things, walk around to macabre organ music. This thing resembles the strange rituals held behind closed doors by occult groups. Outside of the great number of costumes representing demons and Satan (already extremely bizarre for a Cathedral), some costumes seem to make a mockery out of Christianity.

Does this look like Jesus crucified to you?

Other pictures:


A priest-monster with a evil looking crucifix floating behind him
The “bishop” standing in the pulpit while the ghouls parade

Don’t satanic rituals make fun of Christian rituals by distorting them? Well that’s as distorted as it can get. Processions are a pagan tradition like the “Procession of the Prechten” in Germany, which is very similar to the one at St. John the Divine in many ways.

Procession of the Perchten in Germany

B) The Blessing of the Animals

Another bizarre ritual is the Blessing of the Animals that takes place in September of every year. You have a bunch of animals INSIDE and outside the sanctuary of the Cathedral “worshiping God” (in their words). Since when do animals read the Bible and such? They never did. An article published in 1996 by the California Forestry Association describes the scene:

“…goats, horses and other animals are led to the alter to receive blessings. Camels and elephants walk the aisles as worshipers march to the alter with bowls of compost and worms.”

This is another pagan ritual, taking place inside a church. Notice the white robes everybody is wearing.

Hope this horse won’t poop while getting its blessing
This cow is all worshiped out

Did you notice those white robes? Look at those pictures of other pagan rituals:

Celebrating "Lucia"
Celebrating “Lucia”
Pagan ritual in Greece

Notice a similarity? Yes, white robes! Anyways, this is a video captured during the actual mass. There are UNCANNY resemblances with pagan rituals.

So we’ve blessed, horses, monkeys and aunt Sylvia’s poodle dressed like a ballerina. What is there left to bless? Why not people’s bicycles while we’re at it? Oh crap, shouldn’t have said that.

C) The Blessing of Bicycles

I won’t even comment on this, it is too ridiculous.

The environment is our religion and we don’t know it yet

D) Paul Winter’s Winter Solstice Celebration

Can’t worship the Sun more than that

This famous New Age musician celebrates the Winter solstice, one of the most ancient pagan rituals. He says on his website about the consort:

In ancient times, observers watched the sun sink lower in the sky each day, and feared it would disappear completely and leave them in darkness.

People practiced special rituals intended to entice the sun’s return. Bonfires and candles, with their imitative magic, helped fortify the waning sun and ward off the spirits of darkness. These symbols live on in our modern seasonal customs: the candles of Hanukkah and Christmas are kin to the fiery rites of old, which celebrated the miracle of the earth’s renewal.

So, yes he is Pagan, he’s proud of it and he performs inside a cathedral.

The Temple of Understanding

St. John the Divine is the headquarters of the Temple of Understanding, an interfaith effort to steer away people from traditional religions to a hybrid kind of spirituality based on New Age philosophies, Neo-Paganism and a mix of organized religions’ traditions. The “friends” who have assisted the founder Juliet Hollister include John D. Rockefeller II, the XIV Dalai Lama, Pope John XXIII, Eleanor Roosevelt, UN Secretary-General U Thant, International Planned Parenthood and the Jewish Theological Seminary. Jean Houston, a New Age guru and supporter of the Temple of Understanding wrote in her book “Trojan Horse”:

“The Temple’s purpose is to facilitate the one world religion, through the promoting both the acceptance and the embrace of all religions, beliefs and rituals. The Temple of Understanding’s Meditation Room was to be known as the “Hall of Illumination”‘ where the Illuminati, Masters of Wisdom, Our Leaders of the Temple of Understanding will train the public in the new humanistic cult…to create a new type of mystic”

The Temple has received full UN accreditation and has been a key actor in the “spiritual” department of the UN. Twelve individuals listed as Directors or Advisors of the Temple of Understanding are also members of the UN’s Global Forum councils. Those Forums have received numerous speakers who’ve openly supported a neo-pagan world religion based on Earth worship. James Lovelock, one of the speakers mentioned that “Gaia” (an ancient term describing the Earth as a Goddess) was the giver of life and had the capacity to heal herself. He describes humans as being cancers to Gaia, an “illness too overwhelming for her to heal herself”. In other words, humans are parasites to the goddess Gaia.

Al Gore has been a guest several times at the Cathedral of St.John the Divine where he infamously said “God is not separate from the Earth“. Well, in Christianity, Judaism and Islam, God IS in fact separate from the Earth (in the Heavens). If you decipher Gore’s phrase:

God = Earth = Earth is God

Gore has been repeatedly applauded by Pagan groups for his books and lectures. The Church of All Worlds congratulated the Clinton/Gore victory in 1996 by writing:

“We are Neo-Pagans — implying an eclectic reconstruction of ancient Nature religions, and combining archetypes of many cultures with other mystic and spiritual disciplines — and our beliefs and values are no different from those you describe as your own. Your book, Earth in Balance, is heralded by our People as a manifesto for all we hold dear…Know that there are half million NeoPagans out here who support you, and who voted for you, and who will rally to the aid of your policies for the salvation of the Earth and the reunification of the Great Family”.

Another member of the board of directors of the Temple of Understanding is Thomas Berry. He believes that the world is being called to a new, “post-denominational”, even a post-Christian belief system that sees the earth as a living being — with mankind as her consciousness.

Ok, so what the heck does this mean?

If you read my article about the Georgia Guidestones or the Denver International Airport, you’re already aware of unusual monuments and art placed by powerful yet secretive groups calling for a new type of global spirituality.  Key words or expressions are often used to make this religious shift socially acceptable: “Peace” , “balance with nature” or  “harmony with the infinite”. How can you be against peace? You can’t.  Those buzz words hide however the means that will be used to obtain those objectives:  “Peace” will only happen when all there will be a single world government. “Balance with nature” will only happen when the world population will drastically decrease and “harmony with the infinite” will only happen when the world will give up traditional religions to embrace neo-pagan humanism.

The St. John the Divine Cathedral acts as a nervous center for the spiritual side of the global shift. Through numerous forums and UN summits, the Temple of Understanding reunites leaders from all major religions to devise a universal message.  This message will later be communicated to the masses  through local religious networks. In a slow yet steady manner, all religious faiths are leaning towards the same sets of values and will eventually converge into humanism.

Interfaith meeting at the Temple of Understanding

An example of this is Madeleine L’Engle’s courses given inside the Cathedral (she also is  one of the founders of the Temple). Her teachings include shamanism, out-of-body experiences, astral projection, Tarot methods of fortune telling, earth worship, psychic abilities, yoga, Tantric Toga (sexual form of Black Magic) and astrology. Almost all of those practices have have been severely condemned by Christianity for centuries yet they are being accepted within the Cathedral. Those types of courses are being promoted in various religious temples across the world.

But the main value that needs to be globally accepted is environmentalism. By creating a sense of urgency and fear regarding the degradation of Nature, it is easy to pass laws that would be otherwise unpopular, to raise taxes for the sake of environment and to shift the masses’ focus from their respective religions’ laws to the worship of the Earth. People embracing this New Age spirituality are more likely to accept controversial projects like Planned Parenthood and eugenics. When Nature is your religion, you see human life as a parasitic presence and more likely to rationalize the death of masses of population.

In Conclusion

If you have take one thing from this article is that the St. John the Divine Cathedral is not Christian. In fact, it houses the very people that are working towards the eradication of religions, and they are doing a great job at it. Like I’ve said in the beginning, I do not condemn any faith, whether its Muslim, Christian or Wiccan. All faiths contain wisdom in their teachings. But messing with people’s faiths and tricking them into worshiping something else is pure, epic, biblical proportions, Cobra from GI Joe, Skeletor from He-Man Evil. Some say that Satan is the master of deceit. Well, people going to mass into that Cathedral are being deceived in ways they can’t even imagine. Paul has warned the Corinthians:

“…for such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder. For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works”
(II Corinthians 11:13-15).

I'm really enjoying your site. I've read about 20 articles in the last 24 hours. Can't get enough. I really appreciate your analysis on each topic. What is really interesting about the Illuminati is they keep using things like "environmentalism" as their agenda, which tricks us into fearing objectively good things like environmentalism. For every scenario they try to impose on us (choosing between the duality of environmentalism vs. non-environmentalism for example) we have to keep in mind that there is always a third option: the true form of what they've twisted. For example, illuminati environmentalism means sacrificing many so that a few can live in the lap of luxrury and do whatever they want while enjoying a beautiful planet free of "useless eaters." True environmentalism would mean 100% of us respecting our "home," the planet we live on, and operating by the truth that for every cause there is… Read more »

Wanted to add, I also got the other facts from the new movie Cowspiracy. While these are totally different topics (SRA and Animal Agriculture) there were some fascinating overlapping truths in the understanding I've gleaned from both areas of research.

See? Repent and get right… quick!!!!!!!!

Did anyone else notice the orbs in that picture, where they mock Jesus made up of sticks in that Extravaganza thing?!!!!
That's ALOT of orbs.

From "Am," "mother," and "arka," "earth," you get "Amarka," "The Mother of the Earth.", alias Rhea, Cybele etc, The Mother of Gods and Men, alias the Roman Catholic Mary, the "queen of heaven" [Jeremiah 44:17,18,19,25], and most surely these manifestations which all represent Nimrods wife are represented by the "Statue of Liberty" in New York harbour. [ note 1, p.77. The Goddess Mother of Habitation" – "The Two Babylons" by Alexander Hislop.]

and from the same book page 158 — The Golden Cup —- Revelation 17:4

"……….Thus then the cup bearing goddess was at once Venus, the goddess of licentiousness, and Nemesis, the stern and unmerciful one to all who rebelled against her authority.

How remarkable a woman, whom John saw [Rev.] described in one aspect as the "Mother of harlots" and in another as "Drunken with the blood of the saints!"

Jer.51 42 "The sea has come up over Babylon; she is covered with the multitude of its waves."
Pillars on St. John the Divine Cathedral [ Jeremiah 51:42-44 ]
Jer.51:64 "Then you shall say, "Thus Babylon shall sink and not rise from the catastrophe that I will bring upon her. And they shall be weary." Thus are the words of Jeremiah.
Revelation 18:21-24. "Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore…….23 ……For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived…..24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth."

I enjoy much of this website. The problem is you seem to constantly be lumping environmentalism, progressive thinking and "new" spirituality (really a remembering of Spirit and what we are as souls in this universe) with the Illuminati agendas. Everything can be used for good or evil–even being a Mason does not make you automatically evil or part of this agenda. The problem is that the only people who have this spiritual/occult wisdom are power hungry elites who use their knowledge for selfish purposes. You claim to respect Wiccans and all religions, all spiritual perceptions, but I don't usually get this vibe from your blog. Is there something wrong with environmentalism??? Last time I checked, protecting the earth will save the species…unless you all want to destroy the earth because it doesn't matter anyway as long as Jesus saves you. What kind of a mindset is that? In my opinion,… Read more »
You focus on worshipping the creations instead of the creator. Earth may be our temporary home, but it will be literally destroyed when our Sun goes supernova in a couple billion years. We are not saving the Earth, and we are not even saving life itself. There are microbes that live in the harshest conditions in the deep oceans that will never experience any effect of any causes that happen on the surface, even if a full nuclear winter occurred. Life itself on Earth is not endangered by human beings at all. If anything, life will restart after our self-annihilation and evolution will restart. There will be a fresh batch of new species after any self-destruction. So what is it exactly that we are trying to save? I argue that we are trying to save our own physical bodies. We shouldn’t fear that which destroys the body. We should only… Read more »

I don't believe in God, Jesus or Satan; but I do believe in the existence of power, greed and wealth.

This is exactly what this is, and religious or not, we should all be opening our eyes and protecting each other from this NWO movement which is becoming clearer every day.

Really? Well, how will you answer when you face Jesus at the end of your life?

Did you read “not in his image” by John Lash, a suggested lecture by Graham Hancock ? This book, clearly states how monotheistic religions contain at their core the seeds of evil, to know : the worship of an extraterrestrial father, the supression of the divine feminine, the chosen people, an elite to save the corrupt… The sacrificed scapegoat, the culprit of being human…Maybe the elite corrupt the pagan rites, but to my view, gnosticism isn’t about that, it resembles more like our primitive people who respect all living things, and don’t put man over the chain of evolution, which disconnects the link to the earth, still so generous even after all the pumping of her blood, the exploitation made to her. Most of the time, I agree totally with you, you are an excellent decypherer of Hollywood culture, but you must realise that the monotheistic religions are far more… Read more »
The Christ above the Cathedral door on the front picture also depicts the Freemasons symbol (see the arms depicting the shape of the compass). Nice… Also I highly recommend you the following book: “Maçonnerie et sectes secrètes: le côté caché de l’histoire” (“Masonery and secret sects: the hidden side of history”) written by Epiphanius (pseudonyn). Not sure it is available in English though but truly a GREAT book, you’d love it: >800 pages of highly reliable info on freemasons, rose-croix, O.T.O, Comenius, Memphis-Misraim Lodge, Fabian Society, B’nai B’rith, Palladism, Lucis Trust, Golden Dawn (…), and relevantly explained links between them and the various Revolutions (France’s 1789, USA’s independance, Russia’s 1917…), World Wars, UN etc. All the info in this book (and I mean ALL) are based on quotes from high level freemasons (mostly above 30th degree) and gnostic sects members (public speeches, consigned speeches in Lodges etc), quotes from books… Read more »

Stop the video about animal blessing at 1:15. See something? It is not very clear visible, but good enough to wonder what the hell that thing is doing in this cathedral or should I say-Synagogue?

Another great article. 'They' think they can change reality by taking over human consciousness which is energy.

This sort of redirection of worship is what they want so we worship the EFFECT – nature / science and not the CAUSE – divinity.

It is an attempt at reversal of divine laws. But the effect can never be cause.

Folks, I hate to burst your bubble but the Cathedral of St. John the Divine is NOT a Catholic cathedral. It is an ANGLICAN cathedral (Church of England).

it is my deepest hope that those passing by the VC site will not overlook pieces such as this, and will do their own research of such matters, and especially the Bible. the music video/contemporary media bits are telling, but these essays go a bit further. and so many are blind to how their reality is being massaged by others. here is the best part of this piece: "Like I’ve said in the beginning, I do not condemn any faith, whether its Muslim, Christian or Wiccan. All faiths contain wisdom in their teachings. But messing with people’s faiths and tricking them into worshiping something else is pure, epic, biblical proportions, Cobra from GI Joe, Skeletor from He-Man Evil.

the obvious was pointed out to me that this
is not jesus.

i think it was chris white (nowheretorun1964, debumking jordan maxwell and david icke, etc.) who pointed out that the worship of suffering jesus son of god who died for sins is being replaced by worship of this solar hero.

Your right!

Osiris is the egyptian god of the dead, the hemets were pagans, they worshipped the creation and not the creator. Paganism is evil, it focuses around yourself and the earth, everything that is temporial. God demands loyality, repect, love and trust. Man on a whole does not identify with God no more has been decieved by the trickery of smoke and mirrors i.e music, television, movies. To truthseeker, how do you know the suns real or the moons real, no one has pictures of the sun, all we know that it is it gives off light and heat. How does anyone know what anything is, all these man made tests to test the test are MAN-MADE. If JESUS CHRIST wasn't REAL than why does is this so-called myth disturb the godless, I know hercules and zueus aren't real but I don't feel compelled to argue against anyone that believes they… Read more »

I saw the “Silent Night” video from the Paul Winter Consort concert and I’m stunned. Earth is being worshiped instead of Jesus Christ, whose father God himself created. The “climate change” people are trying to trick us into worshiping the Earth itself in the form of recycling efforts and all that. Nothing’s wrong with recycling stuff, but what are these environmentalists getting us into? I will never step foot into that place, I can assure you.

I say that the people who want to drastically reduced the world’s population should start with themselves because they look so ridiculous worshipping whatever it is they worship. And, are they not hypocrites if they think people are parasites; they should off themselves right away and be good examples for the rest of us.

You meet a new person, you go with him and suddenly you get a whole new city…you go down new streets, you see houses you never saw before, pass places you didn't even know were there. Everything changes.

Participated in the liturgical dance blessing of the animals and am unaware of any paganism involved and I am a devout Christian. I learned a deeper affinity and tolerance of the animal maneuvering around excrement, a reality we know exists.
My LORD and Savior Jesus made all creatures and beings therefore I rejoice in His handiwork. "Judge not lest ye be judged" is applicable here, however, thanks to "vigilante citizen" more investigation is necessary before participating in future endeavors.

Lucia, or rather St. Lucia of the catholic religion should not be compared to occult worship. Reading this article and how bad that guffaw was has made this entire site uncreditable . I would suggest a little fact checking in the future

Hello. Does anybody know if out-of-body experiences ,astral projection and yoga are bad things by themselves or is just the way you use it? Because I´m interested in those kind of things and when I read about conspiracy theories this type of things always appeared associated with the evil and the Illuminati. Thank you very much.

Read Death of a Guru. Great book with insight about Hinduism and Yoga by a former guru yogi and now Christ follower.

The Peace Statue isn't a Pagan sculpture–it's a depiction of Michael slaying Lucifer. Get your facts straight.

Do not be fooled, the Peace Statue is thoroughly satanic/pagan. Everything about this cathedral, it's statues, livery and icons reek evil and foul, satanic beliefs of the global elite. All elites are evil and corrupt to the core, do not believe for a second there is a single decent man or woman among them. They are all active p********s, murderers, Satan worshippers, rapists and torturers, and this vile cathedral they've built to honour their "god" -Lucifer/Satan- reflects the darkness of their foul, diseased hearts and souls. But the fury of the Lord is great, and soon all the Earth will cleansed by a deluge of bloodshed and fire, unleashed by the Lord upon the sin-infested world. And the wrath of the God shall consume all those who have followed the false gods and fallen angels and their servants, and there will be no rest for their torment. Amen, come Lord… Read more »
The Penitent Man Shall Pass

Remember, a Christian who honored the second commandment wouldn’t make a graven image in the first place. So, in that case, no sculpture is Christian.

Wow… And I've been there before. It just looks like any other cathedral to me. I never noticed anything strange!!

look… i am of new age/spiritual belief. Basically a culminated concept of my own i continuously build up. But the important part of all the sinister sites is that people should know. They should understand that they are being mislead. They are being indoctrinated. They are being fooled. They have a right to know. But they fight against the truth. How scary it must be to realize that the religions we trust are lying to us. I have follow Wiccan/Pagan lifestyle in my life and Christians have serious issues with that saying its evil – but then look around you and see the evil everywhere – they would be horrified if they were told to go pray in a coven. I believe in knowledge. How can you believe something if you dont have all the knowledge? Read sheeple read. If the 'Illuminati' believe in knowledge – sign me up –… Read more »

It seems the satanic elites have brainwashed you wonderfully. You are an great example of an dupe and a fool.

I think the sheeple is you.

The problem with pagan faiths is that they continue to worship created things instead of the Creator. God, “The Source,” or “Creator,” is the only thing that should ever be directly worshipped at any time of worship.

And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you Free. John 8:32__Realize there are alot of inverted un Truths being shared by groups associated with Aleister Crowley.__Such as Thelema, Rosicrucians, OTO and a few more (None are associated with Freemasons)___Being Crowley did have a short affiliation with the Masons he used some of their Degrees and mixed it with his own. He then went on to form some alternate groups that in spite of represent some symbolism which is of direct Truth yet altered in meaning and significance of True Masonary.

This is a current problem and issue in today's mass misinformation regarding the conspiracy of Secret Societies. Here is a link for any to research and make further conclusions. In hopes this may be informative and help correct alot of the misleadings today based on hearsay and public fear and lack of proper knowledge. Many Musicians are affiliated with these offshoot groups and have perpetuated false tactics and Hollywood Hype in the Media to Mislead the General Public and also put them Against their own Gov't thru improvised Movies and Holywood Alteration of innacurate projection of meetings that have no significance to what has been portrayed. It can be recognized as a series of Satanic tactics to lead people into deceptions and misunderstanding of Truth. It will take keen understanding for one to see thru the mass deception. Good luck and please do your research before you get sidetracked by… Read more »

Here's a link to Bob's website, minus the end quote, which made the link non-functional:

Sorry, you'd have to read jessah's post in order to understand who Bob is. I should have explained. Bob wrote the following, in response to jessah's post: "@jessah – Don't despair about these things, satan will use anything and anybody that he can to keep you from the truth. I think many or most of your questions and concerns are covered here. There is a lot of info so take your time and browse around, specially the Q&A section." Bob's website says it is "Non-Denominational Endtime Bible-Based Christian Studies, Current Events, and Christian Questions & Answers" and has many anti-Catholic things on it (imagine that!). I can only assume that Bob assumed the cathedral of St. John the Divine was a Catholic cathedral. Also, I messed up the link to the Compendium of the CCC by my parentheses. Here it is: http// Peace, everyone!
While it's true that the internet has continued the lies, misrepresentations, misunderstandings, and outright calumny of Protestants, I think on the whole it is serving the cause of Truth as Protestants are able, possibly for the first time, TO EASILY READ AND STUDY FOR THEMSELVES WHAT THE CHURCH ACTUALLY BELIEVES AND TEACHES, and what she has always believed and taught, as witnessed by the writings of the Church Fathers (quick fact: did you know that St. Ignatius of Antioch was actually a disciple of St. John?! He died in the Colosseum as a faithful witness to Christ by the teeth of the lions, at the hands of the Romans), other saints, documents of Church councils, catechisms, etc. As a result, many of them are finally coming home. Here is a link to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is the official and definitive document of what the Church believes… Read more »
I just ran across a couple of comments. The first, by user "Another Perspective," from 137 weeks ago, begins thusly: "Interesting. I will ask this, is the Catholic church even a true church anyway?" and goes on from there with the usual anti-Catholic stuff. This question entered "Anothers" mind because he or she thought that this was a Catholic cathedral. Was I just imagining things when I said that Protestants have been engaging in this kind of stuff for 500 years? And so it continues. They started this campaign of lies and falsehoods and continue it for one primary reason: to justify their own existence, that is, their very legitimacy to exist apart from the one and only Church founded by Jesus Christ. It's sad, really. Here's a quote from another user, "jessah," from 163 weeks ago: "Hey can you make an article about the Catholics, the Popes, etc. What… Read more »
I'm sure in the "pagan rituals" alluded to, people read and/or sung from books or at least manuscripts, consumed food or beverages as part of the ritual, walked around, and sang in unison. Are these things now off limits for good, Bible-believin' Christians? So much for singing the national anthem and "take me out to the ballgame" at sporting events. Gee, I was really looking forward to sustaining my bodily existence by having dinner tonight, too bad. If the author is wearing a wedding ring, and it's quite likely that he is, then I hereby accuse him of following a practice derived from the pagans, and it is well-known that this is so. When he goes outside, he probably also worships the sun. As another example, the author states that animal worship occurs in this cathedral, using the logic of "there were animals there, and there were humans there, so… Read more »
Let it be known that this is an Episcopalian cathedral, and I am sorry for the Episcopalians that this is so. Why this little fact is left out of the article I can only speculate. Coming at the end of the article is this: "Well, people going to mass into that Cathedral are being deceived in ways they can’t even imagine." As far as I know, Episcopalians do not call their worship services "masses." Possibly the author is trying to deceive people who read the article into believing that this is a Catholic cathedral. This type of deceit has been one of the hallmarks of Protestantism for the last 500 years, from Luther on. I can only assume that the author is some flavor of fundamentalist Protestant whose clergy or choir members do not wear robes. Are we going to see pictures of a "pagan" Methodist choir in the next… Read more »

Whoever wrote that article about the 12 most beautiful churches in America must have been wearing blinders.
I am so grateful to the person that wrote this article, it is the TRUTH. In fact, in naming the most beautiful churches they left out one of the outstanding churches, The Cathedral of thr Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

we rely on science to improve our lives.
worship medicine,chem,phys,worship the sun to keep us ongoing.worship the moon and the galactic black hole.its enough,we dont want hell and paradise 666
we grow,educate,serve,love marry have children,die in the universe.its enough..

I heard about THEM trying to form 1 world religion by melting all traditions and beliefs into a singular form of deity … but this is outrageous .. and when I think even I was tricked to take part in such gatherings while I was studying in California .. a friend of mine told me about this really popular "spiritual" center called Agape .. and I went there, true, people were really nice, but I always had a funny feeling about it .. now I understand why .. good job VC .. I will pass on the word to people, we all need to wake up !

By the way, I'm not trying to trash your article, you may be right about the cathedral–the one-seeing-eye pyramid and apocalyptic pillars are pretty telling. Just wanted to get clear about non-Christians not being evil…

I hate to burst your bubble on the Procession of Ghouls but there is nothing even resembling the occult involved with it if you look into Catholic theology. Halloween, according to Catholicism, is the day when all the ghouls and demons are set loose upon the Earth. The day after, All Saints Day, is when the spirits of all the saints come and all the demons go away once more. The Procession of Ghouls is simply a representation of Halloween. Is it a little overblown? Sure. But it is not an occult ceremony by any means. It is a dramatic theater show that will be followed by a mass the next day on All Saints Day to expurgate the demons. Sidenote: I find it interesting that the Roman Catholic Church specifically forbids any member from being a Freemason or member of any other ungodly secret society but Freemasons were able… Read more »

It is fitting indeed. For clarification, though, the cathedral is not a catholic one. It is episcopal. St. Patrick's is the catholic cathedral in nyc (there can only be one cathedral per diocese). Knowing the current and former catholic archbishops, this probably wouldn't fly there. I don't blame them as this would be walking the line in most churches, even if it was followed by a high mass on All Saints Day.

Still, St. John the Divine is a tremendous setting for such an event. It is a beautiful/creepy enough building as it is. I've always wanted to drop in for evensong.

This is a Protestant Church – and we all know that the Protestant Church was founded by Henry the 8th cos he wanted to have as many women as he liked …… after which he would cut their heads off ! Right ?

Th Pope said no ….. so he said … right- I will form my own church !

I have to give the othr side the benefit of doubt on the sculpt of the twin tower seeming collapse. I dont really see the collapse here – anymoreso than the other buildings around. It could be that the sculptor sculpted with intention of creating a kaliedoscopish view.

And yet…the whole underlying premise of mainstream Christianity is that we are all inherently bad due to our distant ancestor having eaten the wrong kind of fruit, and that only a blood sacrifice of an innocent man to god can atone for this (inherited) guilt. can anyone see why I have a problem with the whole damn thing here??? it inherently sucks. I do believe in a good and just Divine Orderer, and I will never renounce this. But the acts described in the Bible attributed to 'God' just don't cut it. If a human being acted like that, we would lock them up, and rightly so! May the (actual) Highest preserve us!

So Jesus could not POSSIBLY have been worshipping Jehovah / Yahweh of the Old Testament. Jesus seems a pretty nice guy, I feel that when he referred to his HEAVENLY FATHER he was talking about SOMEONE ELSE.

Here's a nice list of atrocities committed by the god of the Old Testament, if you believe in that scripture (go and check, it's all in black and white): Mass Killings And Cruelties Ordered, Committed, Approved By God The entire population of the earth at the time of Noah, except for eight survivors, in a flood. "And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth; and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark." Gen 7:23 [Jehovah, the first mass-murderer, starts His bloody carrier.] Every inhabitant of Sodom and Gammorrah, and the surrounding plain, by "brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven." Gen 19:24 Lot and his family fled. [What about little innocent children in the city… Read more »

you make a compelling argument FOR the New Testament, the new convenant, and our Lord Jesus Christ, thanks!

Blah blah blah we are ALL missing the point when we argue like this. Since Truth is beyond mere words, and has to be actually experienced, we are better off meditating, or praying, or whatever it is that actually connects you to Higher Reality. I wonder how many people we can sway by arguing and putting our belief system above anothers? i would say ZERO. Just practise, don't preach.

When I read all these comments, it confirms me that so many people write and speak about a subject from which they ignore all. The only words God vs Satan, or, will Satan take over the world or even better Stans worshiping, let me think about how low there knowledge is and how much they are interested in the only religion that has any value, TRUTH. Jesus in what he represents in the bible is the Sun, the son of God, that holyness that keeps all alive. The opponent of his light is the darkness. All monotheistic Religions lead human in error, that is the reason for all this violence we live over thousand of years and it goes on. We are in an universe of counter rotating fields of magnetism. On a general point of view, a magnet has two poles that attract or reject. But, the human is… Read more »

It all depend on the context and on the spirit which undelies the ceremony.

Here in Tuscany, Italy, animal blessings are very common.

In Montesenario Abbey a "motorcycles blessing ceremony" takes place every year too.

Does anybody think that the order of the Servants of Mary ( est. 1233 ) hosts luciferic worship?

Just publishing some pictures doesn't prove anything but the astonishing shallowness and unbounded ignorance of these american christian neo-crusaders.

I may be late in commenting… but here are my thoughts. The first mention of man's creation in the hebrew bible is of the Elohim, the usual word for God. The direct translation of Elohim from Hebrew to English is, "Those who came from the stars", this means man's DNA comes from the stars, the original man is not of Earth origin. What does this mean? It means man has extraterrestrial origins. Scientifically we only know what 10% of our DNA, the rest we call "Junk DNA". In the Sumerian legends, a civilization that once existed in the region that we call Iraq/the Middle East, Enoch speaks of a language of light, he calls this language of light, Hiburu which is translated to Hebrew. The most ancient form of Hebrew is Kabala. Kabala is a THOUGHT-PROCESS. Lucifer is a latin word, to mean "bringer of light"… Luciferianism is a thought-process.… Read more »

I'm sorry but that procession of ghouls in a 'Christian' cathedral is just ghastly! It's so wrong that I can't put any words together to express how appalled I am by the sights seen in that accompanying YouTube video!

The freemasons are not a religion and they DON'T worship the devil. They don't worship anybody because they are not a religion! Did you know the freemasons were the second highest giver to charity in England in 2009? Freemasons are innocent people and they have nothing to do with the NWO.

Maarten: I hear you, but anyone who says "a marble of engineering" is lacking intellectual creedence in my book. The secret 'Illumination' of these groups is coded in the phrases "Nothing is tru, Everything is Permitted" and "Do what thou wilt"…There is no God, that is the secret behind Masonry. Not that worship Lucifer, but that they worship the fact that THERE ARE NO RULES and NO CONSEQUENCES to their actions, therefore they can control the masses with fake religions…I believe in science, not an archaic book written by primitive farmers.

Funny…I don't think of dancing ghouls when I attend my church.

That cathedral is not "church". It is a mockery and all the people who are blind to this truth are doomed.

Christianity is one of the foulest evils on this planet, and should be outlawed. Looks like that is finally starting to happen. The sooner the better.

In the US no one's "outlawing" Christianity or any other religion, we're just asking people to tone the crazy down and do it in their own time and place. How some people have misused Christianity is indeed very evil, but Christianity is good too. It tells us to worship an invincible but good God, to care for one another and others, to be charitable..
