The Catholic Church is often called the Whore of Babylon by those who oppose her.
But this cannot be, for several reasons. She does not fit the picture painted in Revelation, even though some claim she does.
For instance, being clothed in purple and red … these, believe it or not, are not the dominant colours of the dress of the Catholic clergy, as some claim. White is.
… we can go beyond a mere critique of the shallow anti-Catholic arguments like Hunt’s. There is irrefutable evidence in Revelation 17–18 (the chapters Fundamentalists love to quote against the Catholic Church) that proves that it is impossible for the Catholic Church to be the Whore.
