Signs of the apocalypse (continued)

Having namechecked the Antichrist and John Hagee in my last post (although it probably all started with Aphrodite's Child) it seemed inevitable that we would encounter the Whore of Babylon eventually:

What you’ll find is a white televangelist, the Rev. John Hagee, lecturing in front of an enormous diorama. Wielding a pointer, he pokes at the image of a woman with Pamela Anderson-sized breasts, her hand raising a golden chalice. The woman is “the Great Whore,” Mr. Hagee explains, and she is drinking “the blood of the Jewish people.”

No, he's not talking about Hillary Clinton. He's referring to the Roman Catholic Church.
