There is hardly an issue of Catalyst in the last few years that hasn’t mentioned the hate ads placed in major newspapers by the Eternal Gospel Church. These are the ads that use biblical passages to condemn the Catholic Church as the Whore of Babylon, etc. Fortunately, most publishers listen to our complaints and agree not to run them again. But now the hate-mongers have tried to penetrate a Catholic newspaper.
The Catholic Spirit is the official newspaper of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, West Virginia. The Eternal Gospel Church submitted their infamous “Earth’s Final Warning” ad, obviously hoping it would get by the eye of the editor. It did not. Thomas Papeika, who is editor and general manager of the diocesan weekly, rejected the ad and then contacted the Catholic League. But talk about bold as brass!
We wrote to Rafael Vidaud at the Eternal Gospel Church to let him know our thoughts about this matter. You can do the same by writing to him at P.O. Box 15138, West Palm Beach, FL 33416.
