Still I dont see any connection between Simon the Sorcerer and the Roman Catholic Church.
Peter was the founder of the Roman Catholic church (first pope). And the Eastern Orthodox churches also regard him to be their church's founder. If Simon competed with Peter and formed a gnostic church, it does not make the Roman Catholic Church gnostic in any way.

You have quoted some from secular writings and writings of Gnostics for ever. I can personally give you thousand such web-sites but they amount to nothing. Next time come up with something substantial.
Hmm..Makes me wonder if you one of those "wolves" wearing the "christian" sheep sheep-skin :)
