Antipope John Paul II's Apostasy in Assisi
Oct. 27, 1986, Antipope John Paul II prayed with over 100 different religious leaders of various false religions, thereby repudiating the teaching of Scripture and the 2000-year teaching of the Catholic Church outlawing prayer with false religions. The entire day of prayer with the pagans, infidels, and heretics was Antipope John Paul II's idea and they came at his invitation. During this meeting, the Dalai Lama placed a Buddhist statue on the tabernacle in the Church of St. Francis. Among the various false religious leaders at Assisi, there were rabbis, Islamic muftis, Buddhist monks, Shintoists, assorted Protestant ministers, Animists, Jainists and others. During the meeting, a member of each false religion came forward and offered a prayer for peace. In 1928, Pope Pius XI authoritatively condemned this activity and denounced it as apostasy from the true Faith.
Pope Pius XI, MortaliumAnimos (# 2), Jan. 6, 1928: “For which reason conventions, meetings and addresses are frequently arranged by these persons, at which a large number of listeners are present, and at which all without distinction are invited to join in the discussion, both infidels of every kind, and Christians… Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy... Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it...”
Pope Pius XI, MortaliumAnimos (# 10): “So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics…”
Antipope John Paul II, Angelus Address, Oct. 12, 1986: “In a few days we shall go to Assisi, representatives of the Catholic Church, of other Christian Churches and ecclesial communities, and of the great religions of the world... I issued this invitation to ‘believers of all religions.”
Antipope John Paul II meeting with his good friend, the Dalai Lama
The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the pagan Buddhist religion. He also claims to be a god. John Paul II repeatedly praised the false religion of Buddhism. The two unbelievers appeared to have been the best of friends - brothers in Antichrist.
Antipope John Paul II venerating the monument of the Hindu Ghandi
In March of 1986, John Paul II went to New Delhi, India, the place where the Hindu Mahatma Ghandi was incinerated. John Paul II took off his shoes before this monument and stated: "Today as a pilgrim of peace, I have come here to pay homage to Mahatma Ghandi, hero of humanity." (Insegnamenti di Giovanni Paolo II, 1986,1)
St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Thelogica, Pt. II-II, Q. 12, A. 1, Obj. 2.: "...if anyone were to... worship at the tomb of Mahomet, he would be deemed an apostate."
This teaching of St. Thomas shows us that there are apostate actions, just as there are heretical actions. The Assisi event, venerating the monument of the Hindu Ghandi, venerating the Synagogue, going to the Buddhist Temple, going to the Mosque, etc. are all actions that prove that John Paul II was an apostate. They are all equivalent to worshipping at the tomb of Mahomet.
Antipope John Paul II receiving the mark of the adorers of the Hindu god Shiva
On Feb 2. 1986, Antipope John Paul II received on his forehead the Tilac or Tika, the red powdery paste of the Hindus: the sign of recognition of the adorers of Shiva. This is total idolatry and apostasy.
Antipope John Paul II in the Buddhist Temple
Here we see Antipope John Paul II in the Buddhist Temple in Bangkok, Thailand, May 10, 1984. Just prior to going to the temple, Antipope John Paul II expressed how anxious he was "to meet his holiness, the supreme patriarch [Buddhist] in the temple." This is apostasy, of course. Also, a few days before going to the Buddhist Temple (in preparing to go to Korea and then to Thailand), Antipope John Paul II said the following:
Antipope John Paul II, May 6, 1984: "…the world looks to Korea with particular interest. For the Korean people throughout history have sought, in the great ethical and religious visions of Buddhism and Confucianism, the path to renewal of self… May I address a particular greeting to the members of the Buddhist tradition as they prepare to celebrate the festivity of the Coming of the Lord Buddha? May your rejoicing be complete and your joy fulfilled."
Not shown in the picture above is the gigantic statue of Buddha which Antipope John Paul II bowed in front of.
Antipope John Paul II meeting with Voodoo Worshippers, 1986
Here we see Antipope John Paul II meeting with Voodoo worshippers, whom he invited to come pray with him at Assisi in 1986. The Animist religion to which they belong worships the souls of ancestors, the forces of nature, and also the Devil. Antipope John Paul II assured the witch doctors, just as he assured all the pagans, infidels and idolaters at Assisi, how "great" their religion is.
Antipope John Paul II, Angelus Address, Sept. 21, 1986: “To begin with, I would like to thank all those of the Christian Churches and of the other great religions of the world, who have accepted the invitation to go to Assisi on 27 October, for a special meeting of prayer for peace, today so fragile and threatened.”
On August 8, 1985, John Paul II prayed with African Animists (witch doctors). John Paul II recalled the meeting:
“Particularly noteworthy was the prayer meeting at the sanctuary of Our Lady of Mercy at Lake Togo where, for the first time, I also prayed with a group of Animists.” (L’Osservatore Romano, August 26, 1985, p. 9.)
Antipope John Paul II meeting with Voodoo Worshippers, 1993
In Cotonou, Africa on Feb. 4, 1993, chanting girls treated John Paul II to a “trance inducing” Voodoo dance.
Antipope John Paul II’s Apostate Prayer Meeting in 1999
John Paul II continued with his wild program of apostasy, totally condemned by the teaching of the Catholic Church, after the Assisi event. John Paul II sponsored pagan prayer meetings at Kyoto (1987), Rome (1988), Warsaw (1989), Bari (1990), and Malta (1991), as well as numerous meetings since that time.
Here is Antipope John Paul II surrounded by an assorted group of pagans and idolaters, including one half-dressed, on Nov. 7, 1999 - at another one of his countless apostate interreligious prayer meetings. This was at his “Pan-Christian Encounter” in 1999. During these meetings, John Paul II praises them and esteems them for their false religions of the Devil. This is nothing other than a general occultism. Check out the masked pagan just behind Antipope John Paul II on our left and his right.

At John Paul II's 1986 Assisi Prayer Meeting a statue of Buddha was placed on the altar. Here is a picture of this statue.
Antipope John Paul II spreading the light of Lucifer at Assisi 2002
Scripture teaches that the gods of the false religions are devils (1 Cor. 10:10; Psalm 95:5). Antipope John Paul II teaches that the false, non-Christian religions are good and that their "faith" comes from the Holy Ghost (Redemptor Hominis #6). Here, at Assisi 2002, the apostate Novus Ordo "Franciscans" hand lamps to the various false religious leaders, including Christ-denying Jews, Muslims, etc. This is very symbolic: this is the light of man without God; this is the light of peace without Christ; this is the light of Lucifer – and Antipope John Paul II was the one spreading it. Those who follow the Vatican II religion are embracing this satanic syncretism and apostasy.
Antipope John Paul II’s Rooms of Idolatry at Assisi II, in 2002
On Jan. 24, 2002, Antipope John Paul II held another pagan prayer meeting in the city of Assisi Italy – a repeat of the abominable event that took place in 1986. During the prayer meeting, a representative of every false religion involved was allowed to come to the pulpit and give a sermon on world peace. In the presence of Antipope John Paul II a Voodoo high priest came to the pulpit outside the Basilica of St. Francis and gave the Voodoo prescription for world peace. (Voodoo, remember, is Satanism). So, by Antipope John Paul II’s arrangement, from a pulpit outside the historic Basilica of St. Francis, a Satanist was allowed to give a sermon and provide his prescription for world peace. This would involve slitting the throats of goats, chickens, doves and pigeons, and draining their blood from their arteries.
After the Jew, the Buddhist, the Muslim, the Hindu, the Voodoo Witchdoctor and the rest were finished preaching, the various false religious leaders broke up into different rooms to pray to their false gods. Above we see the actual arrangement of rooms that Antipope John Paul II gave to the various pagans and idolaters. Antipope John Paul II had it arranged in advance that each religious group was given a separate room in which to worship the Devil. All of the crucifixes were removed, and the crucifixes which could not be removed were covered. Antipope John Paul II made sure that the infidels and pagans saw no sign of Jesus Christ. The Muslims needed a room which faced East toward Mecca, and it was given to them. The Zoroastrians needed a room with a window – so that the smoke from the wood chips that they burned to the devil could exit through it – and it was given to them. The Jews wanted a room that had never before been blessed – in other words, a room that had never been blessed in the name of Jesus Christ – and Antipope John Paul II provided them with one. Greater abomination, blasphemy and rejection of the true God almost cannot be imagined.
