Biden and 5 Supreme Court justices attend controversial 'Red Mass'

“Vice President Joe Biden joined five Supreme Court justices to attend Sunday’s annual Red Mass, the Roman Catholic service for the courts that was initiated in 1952 by Catholic professionals.” This attendance of a religious event in their official capacities and offices raises the question of whether the separation of church and state, a principle so much enshrined in the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution, will still be practised by the very ones who legislate the laws of the land.

The first Amendment stands as a bulwark against religion excessively influencing government and by barring governments at all levels (federal, state, and municipal) from dictating what people must profess, how they may worship and with whom they may associate. The Catholic mass is a pillar of faith in the church, but “power brokers of other faiths were asked to attend the invitation-only event.”

Prophetically speaking, it is intention of the Holy See is to influence these well-respected thought leaders in the legal profession to think in her frame of mind, and eventually legislate policies and frame laws that will favour the Catholic Church. The Vatican goal is to “sit a queen.” (See Revelation 18:7 the Holy See intends to govern the whole world through her moral teaching, and destory the liberty granting U.S. Constitution

“God’s word has given warning of the impending danger; let this be unheeded, and the Protestant world will learn what the purposes of Rome really are, only when it is too late to escape the snare. She is silently growing into power. Her doctrines are exerting their influence in legislative halls, in the churches, and in the hearts of men.” Great Controversy, p. 581.

“God never forces the will or the conscience; but Satan’s constant resort—to gain control of those whom he cannot otherwise seduce—is compulsion by cruelty. Through fear or force he endeavors to rule the conscience and to secure homage to himself. To accomplish this, he works through both religious and secular authorities, moving them to the enforcement of human laws in defiance of the law of God.” – The Great Controversy, pg. 591.
