Here is an e-mail I sent to the author of one such end times site:
"Note: Babylon cannot be America or any other country, because Bible prophecy clearly portrays a country as a BEAST, not a woman."
It seems that you have based your entire reasoning of the end times beast on this assumption which is not spiritually or scripturally sound.
Aren't Christians portrayed as "brides" as well? That's spiritual. What would a cheating bride be referred to as?
