My dear husband of 20 + years has been caught – hook, line and SINKER by these jokers on the Internet, who believe that JP II is the anti-pope. He believes all the trash that they present as truth. He believes that JP II is involved with tearing down the Catholic Church.
I try to show him the errors in his thinking but with no success. Recently he asked me to research (trying to change my opinion) what happened when the pope met in Assisi, I believe with other religious leaders.
Other items of controversy are that there are pictures on the World Wide Web that shows JP II kissing the Koran and also one about him allowing a Buddhist idol to be place on the Tabernacle during some type of worship service.
One of the main areas where problems arise is that he believes that Vatican II was a false council and that anything after that in null and void. He believes that Council of Trent set in motion for all times the Latin Mass and that Vat II COULD NOT change the Mass.
Another area of concern is that he firmly believes that unless you are in the Catholic Church you have no chance of going to Heaven. I tell him this is putting limitations on God, Who is All-powerful and All-merciful.
I would really appreciate any help to help my DH to see his errors and that these “friends” of his are really his enemies.
