Renfield Examines Pope Francis’ Call For A United States of Europe

Newly elected British Transhumanist MP Renfield R. Renfield was examining his parliamentary briefing notes for the day- particularly those with regard to foreign and global affairs.

Last Thursday, Pope Francis had apparently given an interview to 93-year-old atheist Eugenio Scalfari.

The interview was published in last Saturday’s La Repubblica.

After saying in the interview that “America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Assad” all had distorted visions of the world, Pope Francis then gave his own vision for the world, “Europe must assume as soon as possible a federal government and federal parliament, not from individual confederated countries.”

In effect, Pope Francis was calling for a United States of Europe.

Renfield wondered what the end result of all this would be?

He decided to ask the one individual who would probably know- Michelangelo the Psychic Lobster.

So Renfield went down to the Set Enterprises lab to talk to the genetically created psychic crustacean.

As Renfield walked through the lab door, he asked, “Hey Michelangelo, what do you think of Pope Francis when he calls for a United States of Europe?”.

Michelangelo in his aquarium happened to be holding in his lobster claws a waterproof copy of the King James Bible (for the lobster loved the sheer beauty of Shakespearian era English) and he just happened to be reading the Book of Revelation, Chapter 13 verse 11, “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”

    The beast of Revelations which wore 13 crowns = the European union a one world currency.

    In a time of the early church to say Jesus is Lord it was treason and heretical because Ceasear is Lord was the term used to proclaim that Ceasear was a god.

      Thanks very much, Carolyn.

      I’m glad to be back to writing and blogging as well.

      I was falling back into a state of depression again when I wasn’t able to write and blog on-line and share my writing with the world.

      But now that I’m able to write and blog on-line again thanks to a kind compassionate person’s gift of an iPhone, I’m over the moon. πŸŒ™

    MichelangeloΒ΄s predictions are quite apocalyptic, uh!?…
    I guess Francis Pope was just making a point…. However, for other countries (excepting the ones included in the eventual regional group) well, it could be a bit of a threat, for sure πŸ˜‰
    Great post & clever writing, dear Dracul. Love & best wishes ⭐

    This one’s brilliant! Love me some Renfield!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks very much. πŸ™‚

      Yes, I’ve noticed Renfield seems to be one of my most popular characters. πŸ˜€

      • janowrite said,

        In one of my stories he’s inept clergy who bungles an exorcism: Pastor Jimmy Don Renfield. πŸ™‚ Few characters are so, ah, versatile. πŸ™‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Pastor Jimmy Don Renfield? πŸ˜€

        That sounds like the perfect name for a southern U.S. televangelist. πŸ‘

        No wonder he bungled an exorcism.

        Most people think that the name of and inspiration for my character of Renfield came from the Renfield in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

        But that’s not the case.

        A friend of mine who owned a used book store in Manitou Springs, Colorado had a pet hamster called Renfield who had quite the personality.

        So I took the personality of this hamster Renfield and molded him into a human character- albeit a genetically created shapeshifting hamster/human who can shapeshift back and forth between those two species although he spends most of his time as a human.

        However if my friend had called her hamster Abazar Khazam or some name like that, that would probably be the name of this particular character rather than Renfield.
