THE ENEMY
PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE TO YOU…Ultimate Evil
Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Attila the Hun, Jim Jones, David Koresh, the Unabomber,Pharoah, Herod the Great, Judas Iscariot, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Wilkes Booth ~ andthe list goes on and on ~ names that will go down in infamy. Just the hearing of thesenames brings back unspeakable horrors and dastardly deeds to one’s mind.

In the Middle Ages, when there were noradios, no magazines, no newspapers, no movies, no telephones, and none of our modernmeans of passing the time, the people were frequently amused by the miracle plays.These were a sort of religious pageant in which religious stories were acted out on thestage. The audience learned to look for one character on the stage who was alwaysdressed in red, wore horns on his head, and [had] a tail dangling out behind him.
