I would not put any credence in any conclusions by Sam "Gyp the People" or anyone else quoting from Alexander Hislop's "The Two Babylons," a book that has been thoroughly discredited as a source of reliable information.  In recent times the main proponent of Hislop's book was Evangelist Ralph Woodrow, whose book "Babylon Mystery Religion" popularized Hislop's teachings.  Woodrow came to realize that Hislop's book was based on false conclusions.  He withdrew his own book from publication and sale, and repudiated Hislop's teachings in his more recent books "The Babylon Connection?" and "Easter - Is It Pagan?"  Evangelist Woodrow is a friend of mine and we have discussed these things in person.
