  1. The red Pachamama Popey is an agent of change for the Church comparable to the way the Bamster has been an agent of hopey-changey for the US.

    Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. She is also known as the earth/time mother.[1] In Inca mythology, Pachamama is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting, embodies the mountains, and causes earthquakes. She is also an ever-present and independent deity who has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on this earth.[1] Her shrines are hallowed rocks, or the boles of legendary trees, and her artists envision her as an adult female bearing harvests of potatoes and coca leaves. Pachamama is the wife of Pacha Kamaq and her children are Inti, the sun god, and Killa, the moon goddess.[2] The four cosmological Quechua principles – Water, Earth, Sun, and Moon[2] – claim Pachamama as their primordial origin, and priests sacrifice Llamas, guinea pigs, and elaborate, miniature, burned garments to her.[3] After the conquest by Spain, which forced conversion to Roman Catholicism, the figure of the Virgin Mary became united with that of the Pachamama for many of the indigenous people.[4] In pre-Hispanic culture, Pachamama is often a cruel goddess eager to collect her sacrifices. As Andes cultures form modern nations, Pachamama remains benevolent, giving,[5] and a local name for Mother Nature. Thus, many in South America believe that problems arise when people take too much from nature because they are taking too much from Pachamama.[6]

  2. Of course the Pope would say that… he is a liberation theologian and of course Marxist socialism. and the UN/Obama pact offers him the idea of “Social Justice”… (redistribution of wealth) that will suffice his worldly ideologies. My issue with this “Agreement” (not treaty), is only some minor parts will be non-legal binding. This means by changing the name, the Supreme Court can rule in Obummer’s favor again. which means that we give the UN/Obama the legal authority to over rule the Constitution …

  3. And this goofus came into the priesthood as a Jesuit?

    The S.J. Fathers who ran the Chemistry Department in the college whereat I matriculated were very much the sharpest knives in the cutlery drawer – and you learned scientific method to their satisfaction or you changed your major – but this guy….

    Had there been a decades-long “dumbing down” of the Society of Jesus in Argentina and the rest of the Southern Cone?
