Description

The Mystery Religion of Babylon [ladies and gentlemen] has been symbolically described in the last book of the Bible as a"woman arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication." [The phone is...was...is not now. This is insanity -- absolute insanity.] "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTSAND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" [and that's from Revelations, Chapter 17, verses 1 through 6].When the Bible[, ladies and gentlemen,] uses symbolic language, a "woman" can often symbolize a church. The true church, for example, is likened to a bride, a chaste virgin, a woman without spot or blemish ([check Ephesians, Chapter 5, verse 27, and Revelations, Chapter 19, verses 7 and 8]). But in striking contrast to the true church, the woman of the text is spoken of as an unclean woman, a defiled woman, a harlot. If it is correct to apply this symbolism to a church system, [ladies and gentlemen, then] it [becomes] clear that only a defiled and fallen church could be meant. In big capital letters, the Bible calls her "MYSTERY BABYLON."

From Wikipedia- The Two Babylons, subtitled The Papal Worship Proved to Be the Worship of Nimrod and His Wife is a religious pamphlet published in 1853 by the Presbyterian Free Church of Scotland theologian Alexander Hislop (1807-65), expanded in 1858, and finally published as a book in 1919. Its central theme is its allegation that the Catholic Church is a veiled continuation of the pagan religion of Babylon, a product of a millennia-old conspiracy. It has been generally regarded by scholars as discredited, with one calling it a "tribute to historical inaccuracy and know-nothing religious bigotry" with "shoddy scholarship, blatant dishonesty" and a "nonsensical thesis".

Hislop ultimately traces Catholic doctrines back to the worship of Nimrod, claiming that the Roman Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon in the Bible Book of Revelation 17:5, and that "the Pope himself is truly and properly the lineal representative of Belshazzar". He claims that the Christogram IHS really stands for Isis, Horus, Seth.

Although scholarship has shown the picture presented by Hislop to be based on a misunderstanding of historical Babylon and its religion, his book remains popular among some fundamentalist Protestant Christians like David Koresh and the Branch Davidians.

The book's thesis has also featured prominently in the conspiracy theories of racist groups such as The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord and other conspiracy theorists.
Although extensively footnoted, giving the impression of reliability, commentators (in particular Ralph Woodrow) have stated that there are numerous misconceptions, fabrications and grave factual errors in the document.
