It’s being called the greatest news coming out of Rome in months!
Five of the Amazonian idols on display at the Vatican have been confiscated and thrown into the Tiber River by a handful of loyal Catholics, who in turn have circulated this on the Internet.
The trashing of the idols has been applauded by faithful Catholics the world over who are fed up with the profanation of the House of God that has been advanced through the Amazonian Synod presently underway in Rome.
Among the idols that were ‘drowned’ was the nude idol representing “Mother Earth” that has been adulated by the Vatican hierarchy as part of this synodal effort to make the Church bow to the planet. Francis and several cardinals were even filmed last week lighting candles and offering incense to the idol. Vatican rep denies claims that alleged ‘pagan’ statue is the Virgin Mary
It's uncertain how many of the idols are left in Rome. At least five are in the Church of Santa Maria Transpontina. In addition, there is at least one in the hall where the synod is being held, and perhaps another in St. Peter's Basilica, but we know that at least five of them are no longer desecrating the Church.
The group that did this cites their reason on the Internet:
This was done for only one reason:
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, his Blessed Mother, and everybody who follows Christ, are being attacked by members of our own Church.
We do not accept this! We do not longer stay silent! We start to act NOW!
Because we love humanity, we cannot accept that people of a certain region should not get baptized and therefore are being denied entrance into heaven.
It is our duty to follow the words of God like our holy Mother did.
There is no second way of salvation.
Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!
The Vatican has decried the act, saying that it is “an insult to indigenous peoples,” but critics retort that it is Pope Francis who is an insult to indigenous peoples because he refuses to convert them from their indigenous ways, thus advancing their eternal banishment from God. He seems to have forgotten the first Commandment: "I am the Lord thy God; you shall not have false Gods before me."
It is expected that this latest splash will continue to generate waves worldwide. In the meantime, hats off to those faithful witnesses of Christ who pulled this off for God’s glory! May it resound the world over!
