I find this hilarious though. I try to maintain a respectful silence on these matters in light of the pain and suffering our Catholic readers are going through because of the current occupant of the Papacy. It is about time Catholics had enough of Jorge Bergoglio’s bullshit!
Video has emerged of two men entering a church near the Vatican and stealing indigenous statues. They then filmed the statues being thrown into the Tiber River. #AmazonSynod #SinodoAmazonico pic.twitter.com/IXx5NgFDZN— EWTN News (@EWTNews) October 21, 2019
Last Saturday, one of these naked female statues – said to be a symbol of life, fertility – was prominently used in a Via Crucis or Way of the Cross for the Amazonian peoples & martyrs in the Vatican ? @AnthonySPQR / @EWTNVatican pic.twitter.com/XC3cbpvkEt— EWTN News (@EWTNews) October 21, 2019
“What did the statues represent? We couldn’t say. But we can say with certainty that dumping them in the Tiber was motivated by racism.” pic.twitter.com/QBP4a14LVS— Radical Catholic (@RadicalCath) October 21, 2019
I announce to you with great joy: the Pachamama idols that polluted the Church of St Maria Transpontina have been cast away into the Tiber River as an act of obedience to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ & in reparation to His Sacred Heart wounded by sin: https://t.co/weBoYJKN8W pic.twitter.com/9GSDmCYWrl— Dr Taylor Marshall ?

What is going on here?
Pope Francis recently hosted some kind of demonic multicultural ceremony with pagan idols from the Amazon at the Vatican to open the Amazon Synod.
“Tourists in Rome are long familiar with the image of Romulus and Remus suckling the teats of a wolf. But this week visitors to the Pan-Amazon Synod encountered a new image: an Amazonian mother suckling a dog. That picture hangs in a church next to the Vatican: Santa Maria in Traspontina. I wandered into it the other day and was struck by the jarring contrast between its stunning Baroque interior and the bonkers propaganda plastered on and near its walls. Much of the church had been turned into a shrine to the plight and nature-worship of Amazonians. Beneath the picture of the woman nursing a dog (while carrying a baby), a poster declares fatuously, “Everything is Connected.”
The poster captures the sheer obnoxiousness of the pope’s “ecological” kick. What a dismal devolution Rome has suffered under him. What will he do next? Turn the Pantheon back into a pagan temple? Why not? If Amazonian pantheism is a “religious experience” worthy of Catholic respect, why not revive ancient paganism, too? Perhaps the pope’s next synod can rehabilitate Nero.
Stripped of all of its pious cant, the pope’s Pan-Amazon Synod is nothing more than a bald violation of the First Commandment. Pope Francis is placing strange idols before the Triune God — in this case, Amazonian ones. Last week, he had a contingent of Indian activists — some of whom I have heard were flown over to Rome first-class by the German bishops — perform pagan rituals in the Vatican gardens. …”
Rod Dreher recently wrote about the outrage this has stirred in Catholic circles:
“I met Canadian Catholic theologian Douglas Farrow at last week’s Touchstone conference. He is a gentle, thoughtful man. Which makes the powerful rebuke he delivers to the Vatican in this First Things column about the Amazon Synod even more devastating. As someone raised in the era of John Paul II, who came into the Catholic Church in part because of JP2’s witness, and who left the Catholic Church in sorrow in part because I was leaving behind the great Benedict XVI, I never, ever imagined I would see anything like this said about the Roman Catholic Church. But we are not in normal times. Not remotely. …”
Farrow recently condemned Bergoglio in First Things.
“The kairos, the culture of encounter, being lauded in the Pan-Amazon Synod is a Bergoglian kairos and culture. The church “called to be ever more synodal,” to be “made flesh” and “incarnated” in existing cultures, is a Bergoglian church. And this church, not to put too fine a point on it, is not the Catholic Church. It is a false church. It is a self-divinizing church. It is an antichristic church, a substitute for the Word-made-flesh to whom the Catholic Church actually belongs and to whom, as Cardinal Müller insists, it must always give witness if it means to be the Church.
So where does that leave us? It leaves us, quite frankly, with the question of how both the true Church and the false can have the same pontiff, and what is to be done about that fact. …”
We all woke up to the news this morning from Rome:
“VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis’ controversial meeting on the Amazon took a criminal twist Monday after thieves stole indigenous fertility statues from a Vatican-area church and tossed them into the Tiber River.
Video of the pre-dawn theft from the Santa Maria in Traspontina church was shared and celebrated on conservative social media. The Vatican’s communications czar, Paolo Ruffini, termed it a “stunt” that violated the idea of dialogue.
Even before the three-week Amazon synod opened on Oct. 6, conservative and traditionalist Catholics had blasted its agenda as a heretical celebration of paganism, given its deference to indigenous cultures and spirituality. …”
Good for them.
Why not toss Bergoglio in the Tiber? That would be even better!
