VATICAN CITY STATE — Vatican officials have confirmed that Adventist pastor and television personality, Doug Batchelor, was deported from Vatican City today. Batchelor was removed by Vatican security while he was filming a segment for his popular television show Amazing Facts.

The Adventist pastor was quickly escorted out of Vatican City and dropped off at Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport where he boarded a United Airlines flight bound for Washington Dulles International Airport.

Vatican officials cited “unprovoked negative propaganda” as the reason for Batchelor’s ejection. Although Batchelor himself has yet to comment on the incident, analysts were quick to point out that the TV presenter has been an unusually outspoken critic of Pope Francis and his policies. “His Facebook feed seems to be dedicated to bashing the Pope on the one hand and preventing his denomination from ordaining women on the other,” reported Christianity Today.

“Although Adventists have legitimate prophecy-related concerns about the role of the Papacy in last-day events, Pastor Batchelor’s incessant critique of the Pope’s every move has obviously ruffled some feathers,” said an unnamed GC official, responding to the news of Batchelor’s deportation. “While we appreciate Pastor Batchelor’s unquestioned sincerity, his narrow focus runs the risk of portraying our church and its members as being anti-Catholic and that is not the image we seek to cultivate.”

The same official mentioned that a church delegation will be welcoming Batchelor as he arrives at the General Conference for a debrief today. The message? “We love you. But seriously, cool it.”

    • People! Seriously! This is a phony story, satire, a joke, NOT true! This website is a satire site set up to pick on SDA and poke fun so, why do you people so easily believe EVERYTHING you read??? The world knows the Catholic church, the pope and the Vatican are ALL anti-Christ so why would any of you even consider the idea of Doug Bachelor going to the Vatican?

      • Well said, “Itel Datruth”!

        By the way, how is your “mother” doing? Ms. “Luci-Fur”?

        And like your momma, (who taught you everything you know(?), was she not in the Ms. Universe Pageant??

        I believe your momma came in THIRD PLACE:

        1. MARY OF ISRAEL
        2. THERESA OF INDIA
        3. LUCI OF BABYLON

    Odd the comments did not state that we are ‘anti-Popes’, thus protestants, and pro Catholic Christian people! Hmm but then maybe they did and the ‘press’ chose not to fully report! Could that even be possible….? :-)

    What I want to know is, who will take Bishop Tony Palmer’s place in this ecumenical thing? Would
    Doug Batchelor be interested? Think of the evangelistic opportunities in the Vatican!! Woe is me!!

      This is not a joke . lies only harm others and considered deception in the sight of heaven for which would be severely judged and punished.False reports has no benefit or value.

  3. SDA Pastor Will

    Batchelor just hired a female SDA Ordained minister in China, so that statement is untrue. Perhaps Pastor Batchelor forgot to tell them a the vatican , that he too has made an Image To The Beast by excepting a government state issued tax exemption. Every SDA Member should be giving an opinion on what the GCSDA has said. But since they are really The Roman Catholic Adventist Corporation nowaday, and is a harlet to the great whore. Many of The RCA are so spiritually disconnected from Jesus Christ and his word. They simply don’t see nothing why with what the other god The Roman Catholic Adventist Corp. has said here. Here is the article published on July 17, 2014

    Batchelor Preaches with an Ordained Woman Pastor

    By Adventist Today News Team, July 17, 2014

    Pastor Doug Batchelor, senior pastor at the Granite Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church and director of the Amazing Facts media ministry, visited China in May. Despite his opposition to the ordination of women pastors, he met with Pastor Xiaomei Hong, one of many Seventh-day Adventist ordained ministers in China who happen to be women. Adventists there have been ordaining women to the gospel ministry since the 1980s.

    On February 6, 2010, he preached a sermon (in the U.S.) against the extension of ordination to women serving as pastors. Video recordings of the sermon have been distributed on the Web and through DVDs. He taught that for a woman pastor to be ordained is not biblical, that there are “distinctions that God has made regarding the roles of men and women.”

    Because of how well known Batchelor’s opposition to women in ministry has become, he was one of the members of the study committee on ordination the denomination’s General Conference appointed in order to provide “balance.” Adventist Today has been told that in the committee meetings he argued against women being recognized as ordained ministers.

  4. is the 7da church really getting this screwed up?

    While we appreciate Pastor Batchelor’s unquestioned sincerity, his narrow focus runs the risk of portraying our church and its members as being anti-Catholic and that is not the image we seek to cultivate.”

    um EXCUSE ME!!! but we ARE supposed to be anti-catholic…we’re protestants! GO BATCHELOR but do be careful! you’re a great preacher!

    Guys and Gals, seriously, consider the source of the story. This is a total farce, because that’s the whole point of this website. I read the article without seeing the source, and already had some doubts, like the fact that he was escorted to the airport in Rome, instead of just outside of Vatican City. Remember to consider the source before getting your feathers ruffled or conversely becoming dogmatic.

    Pastor Doug Batchelor..God be with you all the way! In Biblical days…Daniel, Shedrach, Mishach and Abednego made a stand for the truth. Who in this time and age stand tall for the truth…you better check yourself, before you wreck yourself. If God is not living in your heart..who is?

    • Ann

      Pastor Doug Batchelor is hardly the devil lol. He goes strictly by the Bible fearlessly. Whether the topic is popular or not, he tells the truth the best that any human can. Your AWESOME Pastor Doug!

      • Dave Price

        Doug Bachelor is the devil incarnate! He is evil and leading souls straight to hell with his made-up, hackneyed doctrines! SHAME ON HIM! The Catholic Faith is the Church Christ himself founded! Sorry, the TRUTH HURTS!

    • Ann

      Why would Bible truth be funny to you? He literally reads straight from the Bible. He also doesn’t deck himself out in jewels and fancy expensive clothing, and most importantly he doesn’t live in a palace or does he change the Sabbath or claim to be able to save you through confession and Hail Mary’s. What is disturbing to me is that clear cut signs are there that this particular institution of religion would do all the things they are not supposed to do. I mean it’s pretty clear that you don’t bow before idols. There’s at least a handful of statues and dead saints that you people pray to. It is like a cult practically. When you can no longer see the truth and engage in dangerous practices unconsciously… Brain washing… Cult

  7. The Web site is satirical, but the article wasn’t written that way. True love seeks the honor of God and the salvation of souls. If we do not call folks out of Babylon, we are not loving them. It’s all about the Satanic redefinition of love. Love is what God says it is, not what the world says it is. Don’t seek a more convenient way to love people. They can’t be saved where they’re at, and it’s our responsibility.

  8. This website is simply satanic. It breaks the Ninth Commandment on all levels. It’s not “Barely Adventist”, it is not Adventist at all. And for those who would accuse me of not having a sense of humor (which, I think mine is well developed), please explain to me how bearing false witness is funny.

    All this is doing is taking the focus off of the Gospel. Good News. It’s all about Jesus. Almighty Father Thank you for your unfailing love and the blood shed of your Son for our Sins. Faith is what brings obedience. Stay in His Word and His Way.pp

    The God in Heaven, Maker and Savior of the world, be with you Pastor Doug. You are the voice of God where all voices seemed to be silenced. God has raised up a man like you for such a purpose. Let no anybody silence your voice, not even the General Conference itself! We must tell the truth even if someone feels uncomfortable with it……

    DB just begs for ridicule. Just looking at his titles on YouTube is disconcerting. He is a right wing conservative voice that is misogynistic, sexist, homophobic. Frustration concerning his teachings can be harmlessly expressed with humor. I would suggest if people don’t like satire they should stay off this site. It takes a certain amount of intelligence and wit to appreciate satire. It’s not for everybody. DB is a black and white thinker. I don’t believe you can take one text and make a whole doctrine out of it because you are ignoring other texts that say otherwise. DB is alarmist, extremist, inflammatory, divisive. He has a following but I want no part of his message.

  12. Deborah

    Of course this is a joke, but a very poor one. Making fun of Doug Batchelor for his reporting on the pope ??? How sad. He’s trying to show us that prophecy is being fulfilled now and the sunday law is almost here. Joke about vegelinks all you want, but this is no joke. Doug Batchelor should “cool it?” Thats crossing the line. I wont be wasting my time reading any more of your “humor.”

  13. ken Areba

    Paster Doug is right, is telling the truth from the bible,about prophesy,about what is about to take place,and we are awere that pope whant to procraim sunday,as aday of rest, instead saturday,the truth sabbath of God our creater,may God bless paster Doug and ather truth christians who will stand farm and tell the world the truth.

  14. Patti Vogt

    People truly need to read the bible and interpret for themselves how prophesies are the foretelling of how history has happened, and is happening, and will still happen.
    History IS the evidence. DB is merely making people aware of what is happening and warning us to be aware and choose readiness or not – it is up to each one of us to be stirred with intrigue and find out for ourselves. There is no mystery, it is very clear for all to see! READ THE BIBLE AND YOUR CREATOR WILL SPEAK TO YOU …….. and
    THAT WILL BE THE TRUTH. AMEN

    So much for sharing God’s Love. The judgmental ramblings of an arrogant preacher such as Doug Batchelor are destroying my church. He has started his own independent ministry and is syphoning millions of tithe dollars out of the church to promote his own right-wing agenda. I have been told that he has built this huge monolithic church campus and it is completely outside the control of the SDA church.
    Doug Batchelor, the next Shepherd’s Rod.

    I have listened and downloaded are a lot sermon presented by the evangelist and have been blessed with the messages. If he does not preach the end times messages, who else will, DB, may God be with you, preach the truth, truth will set us free and prepare us for the soon coming of Jesus. May God be glorified.

    This site is a disgrace. The owner is perpetrating lies in the name of “satire.” Satire is one thing; lies are another. This site is neither one. Shame on you. And you can stop hiding behind that silly screen-name “sevvy.” We know who you are; our detectives have identified you as Jessica Kulmeier of Austin, Texas. Why not use your time, talent, and effort to write something true and worthwhile, like Adventures of Tom Sawyer? Nobody even reads this site anymore; and all the people who write comments are a bunch of losers.

    IT IS SO SAD THAT SEVENTH DAY ADVEVTIST AT THIS TIME IN EARTH HISTORY STILL DON’T KNOW WHERE THEY STAND. MOST OF THE SO-CALL ADVENTIST STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT WHAT TRUE ADVENTISM MEANS. THEY WANT THE MISSION TO BE WHAT THEY WANT IT TO BE, AND NOT WHAT GOD SAYS. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT MOST OF YOU PEOPLE THAT ARE MAKING COMMENTS, HAVE NO IDIA OF WHAT IT IS TO BE A TRUE SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST, OR YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE TRUE MISSION OF ADVENTISM. GOD BLESS PASTOR DOUG BATCHELOR, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SIR.

  19. Artaxerxes Miguel Garca

    OF COURSE, I AM A SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST, AND I AM ANTI-CATHOLIC TO THE CORE. NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE THAT. THE SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH IS ESSENTIALLY ANTI-ROMAN CATHOLIC IN ALL ITS DOCTRINES AND POLICIES JUST AS GOD IS AGAINST THE HARLOT CHURCH. THERE ARE JUST TWO FORCES IN THE WORLD, THOSE WHO BELONG TO THE REMNANT CHURCH “WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND THE FAITH ….OF… JESUS”(REV. 14:12) AND THE HARLOT CHURCH, RATHER, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND CULTS OF THE EARTH WHICH IS NO OTHER THAN THE ROMAN-CATHOLIC INSTITUTION. AND WE WILL NEVER, NEVER, NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR THAT. WE WILL NOT STOP TO EXPOSE THIS HARLOT CHURCH UNTIL SHE WILL BE DESTROYED IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD. BUT IT WILL BE THE GLORY OF CHRIST’S COMING WHICH CAN ULTIMATELY ANNIHILATE HER AS WE CAN READ IN 2 THESSALONIANS 2:3-8… STAY AWAY FROM THE ROMAN-CATHOLIC CHURCH. IT IS AN EVIL CHURCH WITH EVIL LAWS, AND EVIL ACTS IN THE PAST.. AND BECAUSE HER PRINCIPLES DID NOT CHANGE, SHE WILL DO THE SAME KILLINGS AS SHE HAD DONE IN THE PAST CENTURIES. READ IT IN REVELATION CHAPTERS 17 AND 18 IT SAYS THAT THIS HARLOT WOMAN WAS DRUNK WITH THE BLOOD OF THE SAINTS.. YUCK,, IT’S A CHURCH FULL OF AWFUL WITCHCRAFT. BUT IT IS ALSO TRUE THAT HER PROTESTANT DAUGHTERS, THOSE WHO WORSHIP ON SUNDAY, ARE DOING THE FOOTSTEPS OF THEIR HARLOT MOTHER. THESE EVANGELICALS ARE ALSO SPIRITUAL HARLOTS. THEY KEEP A WRONG DAY, SUNDAY, THE DAY GOD, CHRIST, OR PAUL DID NOT RECOGNIZE. “IT IS A BLACKSLIDING CHURCH THAT LESSENS THE DISTANCE BETWEEN ITSELF AND THE PAPACY” (ELLEN G. WHITE). THE SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH HAS NOTHING TO APOLOGIZE AGAINST ROME. IT IS ROME WHO MUST DO A LOT OF APOLOGIZING. HER SINS CANNOT BE ATONED FOR. SHE MUST DIE MISERABLY. SHE SHED MUCH BLOOD IN THE NAME OF CHRIST. HORRIBLE WHORE. BLOODY WHORE. WE FELT NO NEED TO APOLOGIZE BEFORE THIS HARLOT CHURCH, AND WE WILL NOT………. RATHER, IT IS THE DUTY OF THE REMNANT CHURCH TO UNMASK AND PUBLICLY EXPOSE THIS EVIL CHURCH, THE ROMAN-CATHOLIC CHURCH. WE WILL BE DISTRIBUTING MILLIONS OF COPIES OF THE BOOK, “THE GREAT CONTROVERSY” BY ELLEN G. WHITE TO THOROUGHLY COMPLETE OUR DENUNCIATIONS ON THIS HARLOT INSTITUTION, AND WE WILL COVET IMPRISONMENT FOR DOING SO. WE FEAR NOTHING IN THIS EARTH EXCEPT THE LOSS OF CHRIST. WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF EXPOSING THE VATICAN. SHE MUST BE EXPOSED, AND NOTHING HAD EVER CHANGED IN THAT ATTITUDE AMONG THE SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS SINCE IT WAS FIRST ORGANIZED.

    So God chosen people are once again playing the Harlot, the truth must be spoken and as far as am concerned , Pastor Doug and just a few others are really doing the work. The others are just trying to be on the right side of everybody, playing the harlot on God once more.

    Just this morning I was looking at a question search on bible prophecy and came across Mr. Bachelors’ answers to questions so I wanted to research him. Although there are a lot of really good answers to this topic I wanted to find out more about him. He tends to pick and choose what verses of the bible he interprets as literal and which one he claims as parables. Only reason I am sending this comment that it has bothered me all day that he preaches that eventually all that are not in Christ will be destroyed. There are verses that pertain both to eternal life and eternal death in the bible. You say that we will have eternal life but nobody will have eternal punishment (death). They will be burned to ashes and will exist neither spirit, body or soul at all. I believe we are going to exist for eternity somewhere. I am afraid if people listen to what he is preaching about that why should they even bother to turn to the Lord? They can just party on in this life and then… One final shot of judgement and they will be done. I just hope he is very careful when he preaches that subject and studies it very carefully. He can actually lead people in the wrong direction. If people believe what he is saying then why shouldn’t they just do what they want in this life? I am a Christian and know where I will be when I die (BTW….. the very second I Take my last breath on this earth also contrary to what he also preaches that we will all stay in the grave till the resurrection). I will be in Heaven with the Lord. I also know where people who reject the Lord will be when they take their last breath. If I believed Mr. Batchelor in what he says why not just live it up on this earth then not exist at all when I die? One judgement and then poof. You be gone. No worries.
