PCG's Ron Fraser Cited 1887 Book to Vilify Catholic Church (1998)

This is pathetic. Back in 1998 PCG's Ron Fraser (1941-2013) cited an 1887 book to prop up his scare mongering of the Pope in the present time. 
In the twentieth century, the strongest evidence of this political influence of the Roman Catholic Church is its drive to support and lead the nations of Europe into a European Union, dominated by its own spiritual influence. Yet this dogged commitment of the papacy to unite Europe has roots which go way back beyond this present century of man’s history. 
“A project is being mooted, which, if carried into effect, will have far-reaching consequences indeed…. It is nothing less than to erect a European Council with the Pope as president. This will be found a great stride towards grasping anew that temporal supremacy of Christendom which the pontiff wielded in the Middle Ages…. This proposal is a very specious one. It has come from the Roman side; it has been ventilated in the London newspapers by way, doubtless, of feeling the pulse of Europe. The object put in the foreground is confessedly a philanthropic one—the saving of Europe from ruinous wars. We are likely to hear more of this proposal in time to come” (Dr. J. A. Wylie, Which Sovereign—Queen Victoria or the Pope?, circa 1880). (Ron Fraser, Unholy Union, June 1998, p. 6.)
Dr. James Aitken Wylie's book appears to date back to 1887.

Many Armstrongite organizations, including PCG, teach that the final Pope will be a miracle worker empowered by Satan to prop up the future European Empire fated to conquer the United States shortly before Christ's return. This gives the COGs a strong incentive to demonize the Catholic Church and the Pope in particular. Fraser was so determined to do so he even cited a book published back in 1887.

Clearly there is no need to fear their declarations of doom and gloom. Let us embrace reality and make the most of it.

  1. Prior to the the abundance of resources on the Internet, I only found serious criticism of such references by what we would consider COG Critics. Another refuted reference that is still quoted by COG luminaries is Hislop's Two Babylons.
