Visitors to the Basilica of the National Shrine in northeast Washington often do a double take when they see Newt Gingrich and his familiar shock of white hair slip into a pew for the noon Mass on Sundays. The former Speaker of the House is known for many things, but religious zeal is not one of them. In fact, the social conservatives who fueled his Republican revolution in 1994 often complained about Gingrich's lack of interest in issues like abortion or school.
This past spring, however, after several decades as a nominal Southern Baptist, Gingrich converted to Catholicism. With the fervor of a convert, he has embraced the role of defending both his new faith and religious liberty. In his 2006 book Rediscovering God in America, Gingrich lambasted what he calls the "secular effort to reject any sense of a spiritual life as mattering." And days before he officially joined the Catholic Communion on...
Identifying the Early Church' Richard Bennett, Christian Apologist & former R.C. priest
http://www.bereanbeacon.org/articles/Identifying_the_Early_Church.pdf Excerpt â€śThe stark reality of the facts of history of the true church permeated with the Gospel of Godâ€™s grace in doctrine & practice utterly voids the papal assertion of an historical continuity between the early believers and the papal church via their dogma of apostolic succession. Rather the Roman Catholic Church is the proven schismatic from the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
As the true church saw (prior to the Reformation and the Reformers), the papal system with its blasphemies against the redeeming work of the Lord Jesus Christ, its idolatry and Inquisition, its claim to apostolic successionâ€”all these show â€śthe womanâ€ť â€śsitting upon the scarlet-colored beast.â€ť (Rev. 17:3) The same â€śwoman drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesusâ€ť (Rev. 17:6) is still today making merchandise of the souls of men while purporting to â€śdialogueâ€ť with true Christians as â€śbrothers and sisters in Christ.â€ť

GG I quite disagree with your premise as the ROCK is clearly Jehovah God in the Scriptures of the Old Testament which Jesus was fulfilling. And Jesus would not have contradicted the Word of God to suit anybody's tradition.
btw if your Popes have followed Peter as you claim it is hard to imagine they somehow believe Muslims who worship Allah and Catholics who profess to worship the God of Abraham, and that would be of course the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob NOT the 'god' of a counterfeit of Abraham, Mohammed and Allah. The best reasoning here is that they haven't and do not follow Peter who had a wife by the way and your Popes don't, who lived pretty much in poverty while your Popes live in luxury, while Peter never claimed any authority to rule over others while this is very much what those who have infested the Vatican have sought to do even by means of inquistion. I don't think Peter sold any indulgences either.
Lord Acton wrote: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Most people who quote Lord Acton's Dictum are unaware that it refers to Papal power and was made by a Catholic, albeit not an unquestioning one.
Ah, GG, you have to remember that the popes are Antichrists, The Pope and the Papacy. Ah, and remember another quotation by the way,
Pope Adrian VI, 1523 wrote: It is beyond question that he [the pope] can err even in matters touching the faith. He does this when he teaches heresy by his own judgment or decretal. In truth, many Roman Pontiffs were heretics.
This of course is to be expected from those who practice The Doctrine of Apostates. Newt never was a Christian, and he has moved even further away from Christ
GG wrote: Jesus declared Peter to be the "Rock". All of those men who followed in his footsteps were also part of that rock. The Popes, be they saintly or evil, have played their part in history.

Now who is posting "fantasies" GG???
Peter never was the rock which Christ referred to. NEVER!
Matt 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, ***THOU ART THE CHRIST THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD***
##==THIS (V16) IS THE **ROCK** GG.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

GG wrote: a] There is no "Anti-Christ" in the Vatican.
b] Judging men by appearance and 500 years of prejudice is more in keeping with the Anti-Christ than with the Prince of Peace.
a] 25:6. There is no other Head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ:[a] nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God.[b]
a. Eph 1:22; Col 1:18. b. Mat 23:8-10; 2 Thes 2:3-4, 8-9; Rev 13:6.
b] "Judging by appearance" - You mean like the popish machinery does in their invention of so called "saints" for the purposes of idolatry???

Precisely GG But God does not draw His followers to the antichrist in Rome.......
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
