"Is the Catholic Church the Whore of Babylon?"
Pope John XII 955-63 Described by the Catholic Encyclopedia as “a course, immoral man, whose life was such that the Lateran palace was spoken of as a brothel.”
Pope Benedict IX 1032-1045 A murderer and an adulterer; the Catholic Encyclopedia admits he lived a “dissolute life.”
Pope Sixtus IV 1471-84 erected a house of prostitution in Rome. There are questions about this fact, specifically that the only real source for it comes from an early Protestant writer and hardcore anti-catholic... hardly unbiased evidence)
Pope Pius II 1458-64 had two illegitimate children.
Pope Innocent VIII 1484-92 had at least two illegitimate children that he raised to positions of authority and wealth in the Catholic Church.
Pope Alexander VI 1492-1503 had at least four illegitimate children and he made them rich through appointments. He made his son, Caesar Borgia, a cardinal when he was only 18 years old. Caesar was an immoral and violent man who had his brother put to death as well as his sister Lucrezia’s husband. Alexander held unspeakable orgies in his palace and kept mistresses who were married women. He died of syphilis.
Pope Julius II 1503-13 had at least three illegitimate children.
