    The pope is the AntiChrtist, and catholics follow him around like a lost puppydog. They are lost that is for sure, and on their way to hell unless they repent and turn to Christ Jesus.

      Yes, I am definitely on my way to hell because I'm Catholic. It's obvious you are ignorant and do not know how to respect other religions.
