A lot of people… a LOT of people… are writing to me about how the Pachamama pagan demon idols were found and fished from the Tiber, are being held in a secure location and that Francis apologized for their theft and that they may be on display for the closing Mass of the Synod.
A lot of people… a LOT of people… are upset.
I say: GREAT! Bring it on. Please, display them. Display them and many others. Get even bigger ones. Think Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Manhattan: enormous gas giant Pachamamas floating around. GO FOR IT.
While they’re at it, include some other idols. Go even farther. Dance around them. Offer incense to them. Why not?
Either you are proud of them, because they mean something to you, or they mean nothing to you. And if they mean nothing to you, and aren’t significant, then you a playing with dolls. So, which is it? What’s it gonna be?
Let’s get it all out into the open.
I want them to be displayed on screens around the whole world. Let everyone see what you are doing.
C’mon. Show us what this is all about!
(And are the statues we may see really the ones flipped into the Tiber, or are they simply some extras that were in their extra box. Apparently, there were quite a few around.)
