This one is based on the fact that the so-called “Grand Grimoire” exists, and it does. It is a book, also called “The Red Dragon,” and the “Gospel of Satan.” The book is real because the Roman Catholic Church officially claims ownership of it, but has never let the public glimpse it. It is fact that it was discovered in Jerusalem in 1750, in the tomb of Solomon, written in either Biblical Hebrew or Aramaic. The manuscript has not been dated to an earlier time than this, or else the Church has not said, but the book itself is inscribed with the date of 1522 AD. Theorists claims it was copied in that year from a manuscript written in the 1200s AD or earlier.
The earliest known proof of it comes from the writings of one Honorius of Thebes, whose existence has not been undeniably proven. He may have been Pope Honorius III (1148-1227). Honorius of Thebes is believed to have written something now referred to as the “Sworn Book of Honorius,” from which the Grand Grimoire was derived, or which is, in fact, the Grand Grimoire itself.
The theory claims that Honorius was either Satan himself, or possessed by Satan for the purpose of writing the book. It contains instructions on summoning Satan at any time, at any place on Earth, for various insidious intentions. The word “grimoire” denotes a textbook of magic. Any kind of magic, whether good or bad. A great deal of so-called copies are in circulation around the world, but none of these, the conspiracy theory claims, contains the true words of the actual Grimoire. It is very popular in the voodoo culture of Haiti, and practitioners there claim to use the book all the time, like a cookbook for spells and hexes.
Theorists claims the Grand Grimoire is itself supernatural in that it permanently resists burning, cannot be cut, pierced, penetrated, torn, or in any other way damaged or destroyed. It is the only book with the knowledge of how to summon Satan (all others being fakes that don’t work), with a precise ritual to be performed, and in addition to this, it can summon any number of named demons (Pazuzu, from “The Exorcist” among them). Being written by Satan, it details proofs of various supernatural miracles of the Bible, the precise locations of biblical relics, and even contains Satan’s personal sketches of the faces of Judas Iscariot and Jesus Christ. Because it is in the Catholic Church’s possession, the theory goes on to claim that every Pope starts out a human, and then becomes possessed by Satan once he is elected.
The 1989 film “Warlock,” starring Julian Sands as the prospective Antichrist, uses the Grimoire as a major plot device, and goes even further, claiming that the Grimoire contains the secret name of God, which, when uttered backward, will annihilate the Universe. This lister paused the film and inched it forward at the climax to read the secret name, and it is “Roaisha.” Help yourselves. Think it just couldn’t possibly get any better? Well, this last quality of the Grimoire was most likely invented by David Twohy, who wrote the story for the film. But conspiracy theorists have championed the idea ever since, claiming that everything in this entry is based on provable facts, and that these facts are in the Grand Grimoire itself.
So where is the Grimoire? You guessed it – in the Vatican Secret Archives.
Catharism is a branch of Christianity similar to Gnosticism, and the details of it would take too long to enumerate. Its heyday lasted from the 1000s to the 1300s, and during that time, Cathars throughout Europe so irritated the Roman Catholic Church that the Church first tried to convert the Cathars without violence. When that didn’t work, they initiated a full-force Crusade, the Albigensian Crusade, which brought 20 years of warfare against the Cathar movement. During that Crusade, the fortress of Beziers was besieged throughout most of 1209, at the end of which, the Catholic army won and slaughtered every single man, woman, and child in the city – at least 7,000, possibly as many as 20,000. The leader of the army stated, “Kill them all. The Lord will recognize His own.”
In the end, the Cathars were very effectively suppressed. So why in the world did the Catholic Church pursue this end so violently? Because, according to the theory, the Cathars had copies of various texts sacred to them and not Catholicism, including The Book of the Two Principles, and the Gospel of the Secret Supper. These and other texts depicted Jesus teaching that reincarnation is real, that Heaven and Hell do not exist, that the God of the Old Testament was instead Satan, and Almighty God is either Jesus or his Father in Heaven, but not the Old Testament God. This is a central tenet of Gnosticism also. The most earth-shattering point of this theory is that Jesus may have taught that reincarnation is real, leading theorists to speculate about who on Earth right now is Jesus, and when he will make his presence known again. These apocryphal texts sacred only to Catharism are commercially available, most falling under the header of Gnosticism.
I am a Ron Paul supporter. This election season, no candidate will. get my vote for the Office of President of the United States of America. except for Ron Paul.There will be no exceptions. If he does not win the. nomination, I will write his name on the ballot.
No amount of slick talking, flip-flopping, wooing, cajoling, threatening, or condescending will persuade me to vote for any other. contender for that office.
You don’t want to admit it, but you know that the Republican Party. cannot beat Obama without me, a Ron Paul supporter. It’s long past time. you admit it.
You and I have conflicting goals. I will only cast a vote for. liberty, for peace, for small government, for fiscal sanity and respect. for the Constitution of the United States and adherence to the oath of. office of the Presidency. You however are content merely to vote for. whatever Republican the GOP leadership and the media approve of.
I will not move. I cannot be persuaded. You cannot win without me.
I am not here to convince you that Ron Paul’s positions are superior. I am not here to convince you that his foreign policy is in line with. traditional conservatism. I am not here to convince you that his. understanding of economics put everyone else in Washington to shame. I am not even here to convince you that the positions of the other. candidates are not materially different than Obama.
No, I don’t need to do any of that. I only need to tell you that. without me, you have lost. If you do not vote for Ron Paul in your. Primary or Caucus, you are already defeated. If you fail to nominate Ron. Paul to be the Republican candidate for President, Barack Hussein Obama. will serve a second term.
This is not blackmail.This is not a threat. This is a simple statement of fact.
