The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked. Read more:
I was reminded of the scandal about the Catholic Church when I read the last verses in Chapter 17 of Revelation:
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Verse 16 seems to describe something which could arise out of the present situation. The world, and specially the governments and their leader, or their future leader, do not really love the whore, and also have not loved her all the centuries, when the whore tried to control them, and her influence sank all the time, and perhaps they now see the opportunity to get rid of her, and they will make use of the present weakness of the whore, and express their hate and make her desolate and naked.
The Catholic Church is that organization of the whole of orthodoxy which stands out first for the outside world and with its tight forms of organization and its often very direct appearance of its leader it is for many people on earth a symbol of Christianity and many of its doctrines are considered to be the doctrines of Christianity. Its present weakness could lead to her being made desolate and naked.
It could be the beginning of a development which is directed against everything spiritual. That gets attacked first which is quite obviously wrong and criminal. The criminal element supplies the grounds to take action against the whore. The compensation of the victims could lead to her being made naked, being made naked financially. It could be the beginning.
The financial side of being made naked is one side, but the demand for clearing up of the cases of abuse will make the whore look more naked, and this again will result in wanting to have cleared up the underlying principle of secrecy and about the lack of reporting these criminal cases to the relevant authorities, and the people, specially the own members of the congregation, will want to know why criminals are systematically presented to them as ministers.
And when then the principles are at stake then one also wants to know who has drawn up these secrecy instructions and has issued them and is responsible for them.
And then one wants to know whether all of that is not a conspiracy against a constitutional state and its people.
And then one wants to know whether something like this is not worse than what a terrorist organisation is trying to achieve, and whether a terrorist organisation, which exists since a few decades, or only since a few years, is worse than an organisation which since many centuries enslaves and terrorises people.
It seems going a little bit too far by comparing a religious organization like the Catholic Church with a terrorist association, but have a look at the damage which it causes and has caused. Only one example from the past may be mentioned here, the inquisition, and the suitable example from the present time is this sexual abuse of children. And the extent of this evil will only be properly recognized when one considers that only a small part of these crimes come to light, as only a small percentage of abused children will report it, and of them again only a small percentage will be believed and passed on. And the passings on which become public, which really end at the prosecution office and in court, should be extremely small. And then we have to consider that terrorist attacks cause bodily harm, but abuse of children mainly causes attacks on the soul of a child, and that is something which has an effect in the hereafter, therefore causes much more damage in the long term than bodily acts of violence. Just consider only how the relationship of such an abused child towards God is developing, which is abused by an apparent representative of God. God says, that all such people who belong to the Catholic Church are in the regiment of Antichrist, and who still now, after all these cases have become known, is in such an organization, and has not left it, he really cannot be helped, and he is partly to be blamed for all that is happening there, simply because he still belongs to it. In future it will simply be a matter of having been a member of such an organization, exactly as it is today a matter of having been a member of the Nazi party, and that alone makes one already guilty. If this still does not convince you then go to Matthew 23:31 and read what God has to say about the matter. And when you read Matthew 23 then you will realize that I here use a very polite figure of speech compared to the words used by God in Jesus Christ there in Matthew 23.
Appropriate action would apparantly be for Mrs Merkel to phone Mr Berlusconi and her other colleagues and agree on a concerted action and round up all these guys and confiscate the relevant documents, but Mrs Merkel has dealt before with difficult people, and that successfully, and so she will probably do the right thing, which is really effective, and goes with the development of public oppinion. She for example probably has to wait until Catholic voters turn against politicians who still try to protect the church. So we do what God recommends: wait and watch.
The other denominations in the building up work of orthodoxy could now think, that their persecutor is now punished and that the people now withdraw from the whore, and will perhaps be now more inclined to turn to the denominations, which are not so criminal. But perhaps they also feel already that more is at stake than just the Catholic Church, perhaps they feel already, that they will be the next ones.
The hate will then turn against everything religious and will not remain limited to Christianity but also seize the other religions.
We have an example in China; there everything gets persecuted what in some way comes near a religion, may it be the many Christians who live in that country or traditional religions like the Buddhists.
And in the end action will be taken against those who really can be described as spiritual people, because they then are those who through their ability to represent spiritual things and to explain their behaviour, are the only ones who remain, because all the others have then already long ago changed into the camp of Antichrist.
A principle will underlie all of this: To separate the sheep from the goats.
The expression, “For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will,” expresses that God will make use of the hate of the governments and will use it to help him with the separation of the goats from the sheep and to do the work for him.
The responsibility for all what happens will remain with the individual. Every single one will have to decide at every point in time how he will act. Will he belong to the masses of goats or will he belong to the few sheep.
Everyone who really wants to belong to the sheep will be forced to deal with the fundamentals and will have to find out what his faith is really all about.
