“And the lords of the Philistines gathered them together to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice; for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.” [Judges 16:23]
This was after Delilah had deceived Samson to having his head shaved. This is also another story that identifies that the children of Israel were black and had short hair. Samson’s mother was specifically instructed NOT to shave his hair a situation that would make sense unlike the false stories that Rome has taught children in history classes.
The Canaanites religions taught and practiced such things as human sacrifice, ritual prostitution, homosexuality and self mutilation. They maintained that their gods practiced these same things as well.
In Canaanite mythology, we have several relationships between Dagon and the other gods. According to Zodhiates, archeologists have discovered in recent years that there was a complex pantheon of gods, which included Baal, Ashtoreth, Ashera and Dagon.
Dagon is either the son or the brother of El and he is the father of Baal. Most of us are actually more familiar with Baal, whose prophets were killed by Elijah during the reign of King Ahab. Satan is the great counterfeiter and he had counterfeited all that is holy. In mythology, gods were married to one another and to man, so that offspring would be a natural outcome of these marriages and really not significant with respect to the Trinity. Furthermore, the most reasonable explanation of Gen. 6 is that angels were allowed to co-mingle with man, which would be the actual origin of these gods.
His female consort was the goddess Shala. Shala is written Ša-la-aš, and is probably equivalent to Sala, who is said to be the wife of Adad, the weather god. Dagon
Dagon, the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians, wore a fish hat that is still seen today with Roman Catholic Church’s pope and bishops.
According to Ruben Joseph‘s book entitled, Why Are The Young People Leaving The Church,
“The miter is derived directly from the miters of the ancient pagan fish-god dagon and the goddess Cybele. The papal miter represents the head of Dagon with an open mouth, which is the reason for the pointed shape and split top.”
The story the church wants you to believe is provided by a PDF entitled, “The Bishop’s Vestments” while an online version of this explanation can be found here.
The book Nineveh and Babylon by Austen Henry Layard stated:
In their veneration and worship of Dagon, the high priest of paganism would actually put on a garment that had been created from a huge fish!
The head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the old man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.
In Chaldean times, the head of the church was the representative of Dagon, he was considered to be infallible, and was addressed as ‘Your Holiness’.
Nations subdued by Babylon had to kiss the ring and slipper of the Babylonian god-king. The same powers and the same titles are claimed to this day by the Dalai Lama of Buddhism, and the Pope.
Moreover, the vestments of paganism, the fish mitre and robes of the priests of Dagon are worn by the Catholic bishops, cardinals and popes.
The chief priests wore miters shaped like the head of fish, in honor of Dagon, the fish-god, the lord of life – another form of the Tammuz mystery, as developed among Israel’s old enemies, the Philistines.
When the chief priest was established in Rome, he took the title Pontifex Maximus, which was imprinted on his miter.
When Julius Caesar (who like all young Roman of good family, was an initiate) had become the head of State, he was elected Pontifex Maximus, and this title was held henceforth by all of the Roman emperors down to Constantine the Great, who was, at one and the same time, head of the church and high priest of the heathen!
The title was afterward conferred upon the bishops of Rome and is today borne by the pope, who is thus declared to be, not the successor of the fisherman-apostle Peter, but the direct successor of the high priest of the Babylonian mysteries and the servant of the fish-god Dagon, for whom he wears, like his idolatrous predecessor, the fisherman’s ring.
The Ring of the Fisherman, also known as the Piscatory Ring, is an official part of the regalia worn by the Pope, who is head of the Catholic Church and according to Catholicism successor of Saint Peter, who was a ‘fisherman’ by trade.
It used to feature a bas-relief of Peter fishing from a boat, a symbolism derived from the tradition that the apostles were,
“fishers of men”. (Mark 1:17)
The Fisherman’s Ring is a signet used until 1842 to seal official documents signed by the Pope.
According to wiki, in breaking with this tradition:
“At the official introduction to his office, the classic ring remained in its case. It was passed to Pope Benedict XVI by the dean of the College of Cardinals, Angelo Cardinal Sodano.
The ring was designed by jeweller Claudio Franchi, who watched as Benedict placed the ring on himself.”
Although Pope Benedict XVI wore his Fisherman’s Ring daily, it is no longer the custom for popes to wear it at all.
Generally, a new pope will either inherit the daily-wear ring of his predecessor, keep an old ring of his own preference, or will choose a new daily-wear style.

Today, nearly all of the pagan gods that were fighting the Children of Israel at different times have ‘congregated’ in the Catholic Church.
“Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters … So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” [Rev 17:1-5]
We know Baal the pagan god whose prophets were defeated 1Ki_18:19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.
Their pagan worship of the sun is now at the center of roman catholicism. We just learnt that Dagon is the father of Baal, and the mother? We know her to be the pagan god Ishtar who was remodeled to become Mary. Friends, the devil has been working tirelessly to build his own copy of God’s institution. And for 6000 years, the devil has been making strides in success and today, all that success is consolidated at the Vatican, at the fingers of Pope Francis.
These are the last days we live in. Are you ready for Christ?
