Praise the Lord! Hardy Souls Toss Pagan Idol “Pachamama” Installed in Vatican Church into the Tiber – UPDATED October 21, 2019

[UPDATE at bottom.  The men who removed the offensive statues have issued a statement to Life Site News.

My only criticism, is that they should have smashed them first.  Those idols are long and thin, made of wood.  Even an exotic Amazonian hardwood like bloodwood should have been breakable, but, hey, I’ll shut up.  These two guys are heroes.  I don’t want to hear about theft or sin, this was an unbearable offense against God and Holy Mother Church and had to come to precisely this end, just as some good University of Dallas (UD) students stole a blasphemous depiction of Our Blessed Mother from a horrid art exhibit that occurred about a decade ago, when former diocesan and university administration tried turning UD from a generally solidly Catholic college – as intended and founded by good Bishop Gorman, RIP – into something much more worldly, leftist, and fallen.  Fortunately, they mostly failed, though some harm was done to the university and its reputation (full disclosure, my daughter attends UD).

But I demure.  First, the video of the heroic act, then, some commentary by Taylor Marshall, who I had the pleasure of speaking with yesterday after the beautiful Pontifical High Mass at Mater Dei:

Now, some commentary from Dr. Taylor Marshall, who gives some historical context for this act, which is in the tradition of many saintly defenders of the Faith.  In fact, destroying false idols has constantly been a hallmark of stalwart defenders of the Faith for centuries.  It is only of this time of unprecedented heresy, blasphemy, cultural rot and institutional decay within the Church that such ridiculous acts like installing pagan idols in Catholic parishes would not be met with an instant fury of righteous indignation and immediate concrete acts to remove the offending idols. An act like this required great resevoirs of the masculine virtues, and in spite of the calamitous collapse of such virtues among men particularly and all souls generally in the past 200 years or so, it is extremely gratifying to know that some men still possess them.  I am extremely heartened that, after 2 weeks, some hardy souls (finally?) acted:

Say a prayer for these good men, as Marshall did.  I have not seen a formal reaction from Rome, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there is not an ongoing attempt to identify them and perse-prosecute them.

David Rodriguez is in Rome right now for The Fatima Center, and I had actually suggested to him that he go and take care of this ugly business, but I don’t believe David was involved in any way.  I’m sure he wasn’t. Yep.  Absolutely sure.  No doubt about it.

Speaking of DR and The Fatima Center, Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea calls on Francis to convert and become Catholic below.  I can’t say I disagree with that in any way.  What that means, theologically and ecclesiastically, I have no idea, but I don’t disagree with the sentiment at all:

[UPDATE]: The statement from the heroes, via Life Site News:

“This was done for only one reason: Our Lord and Savior 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 not second way of salvation.

Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!

Reads like this was a translation or that these guys are not native English speakers.  It makes no difference, may God be with them.  Dominus vobiscum!

A courageous move indeed. And yes, reads like they are Italian perhaps?

Tantum, I advise you not to mention your family too much on your blog. I don’t blame you for the photo with Bishop Schneider, but telling them where your daughter goes to school is rash these days. People are crazy and violent these days and some nut could threaten them. There are a lot of different types of vicious nuts out there who could threaten your family: feminists, sodomites, abortionists, reverse racists, generic democrats, and maybe others. Remember how Rand Paul and Steve Scalise have both been attacked and almost died within the last three years or so. I don’t know anybody who would threaten you, of course, but the times are very vicious. Innocent as doves and shrewd as snakes. God bless, Camper

Maybe these guys could whitewash all the centuries old muscular male nudity (to include God’s naked pasty white arse https://www.reddit.com/r/MandelaEffect/comments/7zfwlj/michelangelo_painted_gods_bare_butt_on_the/)
from the Sistine chapel.

So we will pray for guard angels to be with the family always. Note-every family has ‘retired’ angels – their people are in heaven or hell – ie angel job over.

Re busting up the idols: great symoblism in NOT busting them up and throwing them into the Tiber intact- I think they used to throw heretics in and perhaps one ‘pope’ deemed to be a heretic, without diemboweling him. Interesting that the idols did not raise themselves, or that their particular demons did not save them. Or Pope Pacamamma.

Since the Vatican Bank of the homoarchs has now been exposed to have ‘invested’ over $$750,000,000$$ of Peters Pence money rather than clothing the naked and fedding the hungry – whatever happened to the “preferential option for the poor’? were the homeless to live in that posh London apartment building? – they probalby cannot afford to install security cameras everywhere they enshirne pagan idols and display homosexualist ‘art’ in and around the Vatican.

The Vatican plays the race card and gets hyper PC against its opponents:


Is this the most interesting pontificate ever?

More political correctness: I guess I didn’t get the memo that this kind of thing is already old at Rome.


7. I Told You They Should Have Smashed Them – Francis Claims Pachamama Idols Fished from Tiber, Will be in St. Peter’s this Sunday | A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics - October 25, 2019

[…] in a church, the very first thing you do is to smash it so it can never be reused.  I love what the good souls did earlier this week, but they didn’t go quite far enough, it […]
