Pope Soandso?

Well, it was obviously a pope, and he was probably talking about one of the crusades. I'm going to guess Pope Urban, since he started that whole mess.

General Patton?

Pope Urban 2 drumming up support for the first crusade in 1195 AD.

Before I saw any comments I was certain it had to be one of the popes in regard to the Crusades. As to which one? Haven't a clue....

Agree with the foregoing - Pope Urban - but what's last week's answer?

Some theonomist? :-). Or the King of England. He claims the same powers, doesn't he? Or a president, really, really confused about two kingdoms.

Seriously, I'd guess one of the medieval popes, starting a crusade. My history's not good enough to tell you which one.

Urban 2

I'd guess either Urban II or Bernard of Clairvaux...

This is what happens when you interpret the scriptures without a Christ-centered focus; you start getting a bit delusional. This is not any different than the Islamic beliefs is it? Sounds medieval to me- one of the powerful Popes during the Middle Ages- I'll agree with Pope Urban.

It does sound like something a pope would say to get some fracas going. I think it is Urban II kicking off the first crusade

Either Pope Urban II, or Peter the Hermit
