When it got to the part about the pope's mitre being a fish head, I said "Come on!" (obviously it was meant for rabbit ears.) But then I looked into it.


Dagon the fish god.

There is a bunch of stuff out there by protestants trying to discredit Catholicism because of pagan symbolism. (hee hee).

Dagon (Daygon) is even mentioned by name in the Bible.



I'm not saying it's wrong, but I'd like some reliable sources on that dagon hat / catholic mitre thing.

The Mitre. This is the distinguishing mark of the episcopal office -- a tall double-pointed cap, probably of Oriental origin, which can be traced back to pagan times; at least, something very similar was worn by kings in Persia and Assyria long before the Christian era.


no link to Dagon, but again, it's clearly a co-option of an important bit of pagan symbolism.

probably be able to find out more if you googled it for a little while.

oops, that wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be:
