    Catholics believe there will be a 2nd Coming. It's why pope's are mummified (including JPII's intenses that were removed after his shooting) for Christ's return. I wouldn't say they are as obsessed as the fundie/evangelicals but some are. But the prophecy, as I remember, was laid down by some Catholic scholar in the 16th or 17th Century. I'll see if I can dredge up the information on the 'tubes. It's bound to be there.

    You can't assassinate the character of any of modern conservative. You'd have to find where it was buried, dig it up, resurrect it, then kill it. And killing a zombie isn't really assassination, is it?

      Catholic education--Catholics mostly don't give and man about he end of the world. We were taught that Jesus said you have no lcue when it's coming so stop playing games trying to figure it out. Revelations isn't a big deal.  I am sure you can find and some about another obscure prophecies (I think it's by Malachi) but most Catholics don't think about it much.

      Now the fundies go nuts over this.   They're Calvinists for the most part and really aren't that far removed from good ol' Johnathan Edwards. Half the fun in being a fundy seems to be imagining all those happy who don't live by your rules and whom you can't stand because they are HAPPY--burning in hell.  Very "Sinners in the hands of an ANgry God."

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
