See my previous post. This is exactly why you should leave it up to your Priest. He'll tell you about the important parts. It just too hard for a layperson (even one of some intelligence such as you) to get a handle on. :chili:

Revelations 17

Actually quite interesting, the parallels between Christ and the Prostitute, both had a cup of wine, one that evil tried to destroy, the other will be destroyed.
