Images from the cult of environment meets St. Peter’s confab December 8, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, disaster, episcopate, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, huh?, Papa, rank stupidity, Revolution, secularism, silliness, Society.
A lot of monkeys, for some reason. Notice they rarely show the ugly, ferocious, or gross aspects of Kingdom Animalia, solely the cute, cuddly, and/or majestic ones.
Mahound sees this as demonic. I don’t disagree. It’s also tawdry, shallow, and dumb. It’s tribal signaling of the worst kind that is utterly beneath the dignity of either the papal office or the Church. Tribal signaling of virtue – belonging to the “good” people, the “right” people – takes on outsize importance when one struggles to practice virtue on a personal level. So you adopt the dominant “virtue” of the culture, and proclaim it as your own. It’s a fundamentally narcissistic outlook.
The Church has been taken over – at almost every level – by sniveling, signaling social justice warriors.
I hate to see the Church cheapened like this, turned into nothing more than yet another vehicle for worldly, materialist agitprop.
If you have the stomach, you can watch the whole thing below. Remember this is the main spectacle kicking off the “Year of Mercy!”:
Note, the production does not begin until just shy of 19 minutes in:
So I skipped through it. Even on it’s own terms, quite underwhelming. For the most part, just a bunch badly displayed stills with an over the top soundtrack of nature sounds. Like pretty much every other attempt the Church has made at being as cool as the culture, it comes off as hollow, more farce that force. Which is exactly what the Church’s enemies want.
