Myth of the "dagon" hat

I have seen this several times on the net and it is just plain silly. The notion is that the mitre that bishops wear in the Catholic Church is actually a representation of the fish god "dagon".

Here is a sketch showing the evolution of the Mitre from the 11th Century onward:



Now, notice that the mitre has only been in use since about the year 1000AD, and that (according to wikipedia) the cult of Dagon disappeared about 500BC, how can bishops be referencing a pagan God whose followers died 1500 years before? It is ridiculous to think they are.

Here is also some good articles on the history of the Mitre:

Now can we stop this "dagon" nonsense? You have been educated.

Catholicism is not Christian...why?

Because Catholicism is this...
Jesus + Marianism (Worship of Mary)

Christianity is worship of Christ ONLY...Jesus said it himself Jn14:6

Christ + (anything else) is not Christ ONLY which is Pure Christianity. Ex 20:5 "You shall have NO OTHER "gods" before me." "Marianism" is worship of Mary...which is UNBIBLICAL -> God, in HIS sinless+pure Nature does NOT allow this...period. "For it is by GRACE you are saved, NOT of YOURSELF, it is a GIFT of GOD, NOT by WORKS lest any man (person) should boast about it" Eph 2:8,9
