-->'''Kate:''' Damien...please...help me...

** TheStarsAreGoingOut? It's an inverted Star of Bethlehem, which represents the Jews rising, so it means that they're falling down to the Roman Empire, whose capital was Rome. What happened in Rome recently? It's where the Treaty of Rome is agreed to that led to the establishment of the European Economic Community, the precusor of the EuropeanUnion. The freakin' ''European Union'' is a sign of the end times.
