Faithful Catholics Remove Pagan ‘Pachamama’ Statues From Vatican Church and Hurl Them into the Tiber River

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A video posted online Monday shows two men taking several pagan statues from a church near the Vatican and throwing them into the Tiber River.

The statues, which were reportedly depictions of “Pachamama,” or “Mother Earth,” had been paraded around the Vatican as part part of the controversial Amazon synod. The video below shows Pope Francis (whom many now believe is an antipope) participating in a “tree planting ceremony” with indigenous people of the Amazon and a Pachamama statue.

The Amazon Summit is seen by conservative Catholics as an effort to legitimize “Liberation Theology,” a combination of Marxism and Catholicism that is practiced in Central and South America. Liberation Theology was condemned by Pope John Paul II but Pope Francis (aka Antipope Bergoglio) is helping it make a comeback using the Amazon Summit as a pretext.

Because most of the roughly 400 tribes of the Amazon engage in some form of pagan worship, the Vatican’s working document respectfully refers to the pagan symbol “Mother Earth” seven times, Church Militant reported:

For example, “The aggression towards this vital zone (Amazon) of Mother Earth and its inhabitants threatens their subsistence, their culture and their spirituality.”
Again, the Amazon people have the right to health and to “live healthily,” which means harmony “with what Mother Earth offers us.”
Further, “It is necessary to grasp what the Spirit of the Lord has taught these peoples throughout the centuries: faith in the God Father-Mother Creator; communion and harmony with the earth; … the wisdom of civilizations going back thousands of years … the living relationship with nature and “Mother Earth.”
Almost every time the term “Mother Earth” appears, it appears just like that, in quotation marks.

Pachamama (or Mother Earth) is an Andean fertility goddess who is considered an ever-present and independent deity in Inca mythology.  The involvement of this naked pagan symbol at a Catholic synod has caused much consternation and confusion among faithful Catholics clergy and laymen.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller, for instance, slammed the document in a recent interview, saying: “‘Mother Earth’: but this is a pagan expression. The earth comes from God and our mother in faith is the Church.”

Catholic priest, author, blogger Father John Longnecker explained why the Vatican’s use of the Pachamama statues is problematic.

An authentic Catholic image is the representation of a real person who, by God’s grace, has become remade into Christ’s likeness. The saint has become an image of the unseen God.

A pagan image is not a real person. A pagan image is an idol. It is either a representation of a demon or it is a symbol of some sort of spirit or demigod (which is a nice name for a demon).

Even if the Amazonian female statue is nothing more than a symbol, we don’t venerate symbols. We have symbols in church. The Chi-Rho is a symbol. The triangle in three circles is a symbol. The Lamb of God is a symbol, but we don’t venerate symbols. We don’t carry them around in processions. We don’t light candles in front of symbols. We don’t put symbols in the middle of prayer circles and bow down before them.

Perhaps in an effort to de-controversialize the pagan statues gracing the Vatican Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina, some initially characterized them as images of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but a Vatican spokesmen denied that, calling them merely symbols of “life.”

“It is not the Virgin Mary, who said it is the Virgin Mary?… It is an indigenous woman who represents life,” explained Fr Giacomo Costa, a synod spokesman, told a press conference.

Paolo Ruffini, the Vatican’s chief communications officer, said it was merely “a statue that represents life; that’s it”.

Some fed up individuals took matters into their own hands Monday morning, removing the Pachamama statues from the church before placing them on the edge of the Ponte Sant’Angelo and pushing them into the river below.

Inside the church, a man is seen entering a side chapel and then leaving with a figure. The two people then exit the church and the video shows them carrying five of the carved images of the woman toward Castel Sant’Angelo. The men throw the figures from the side of the Sant’Angelo bridge into the Tiber River.

No faces are shown and the video was uploaded to YouTube under an anonymous account.

As of this publication, the video had amassed nearly 56,000 views.

A dramatic version of the action was released with this statement from the heroic perpetrators.

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 can not accept that people of a certain region should not get baptised 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!
