a lion's mouth. Naturally, each of the beast's seven heads would have a mouth
for eating and making utterances. And, as will be explained in succeeding
paragraphs, only one of these heads is that of a lion. So John's emphasizing of
the lion's mouth points to the one most obviously used by the beast for feeding

Catholic-controlled republics. Do these republics act as the principal
feeding-mouth for democratic civilization? Yes; the lands controlled by
Catholics are very rich in raw materials. From coffee to copper, Catholics
control the ingesting of natural resources into the greedy gullet of the
The majority of the world's proved mineral
resources, other than petroleum, are in Catholic lands. Chief among these is Latin America. An embargo on Latin American minerals
alone, for example, could cause industrial starvation for the U.S.A. Were
