NCRegister Armstrong's Blasphemy on Naked Pachamamas: "There is a Strong case to be made that they Represent the [Naked] Blessed Virgin Mary" against the Words of Francis

On October 25, LifeSiteNews reported the words of Francis:

"I would like to say a word about the pachamama statues that were removed from the Church of Traspontina."
(LifeSiteNews, "Full transcript of the Pope's comments on pagan 'Pachamama' statues," October 25, 2019)

The National Catholic Register's contributing writer Dave Armstrong (according to the journalism website muckrack.com) is in a dilemma because either he is calling his beloved Francis a liar or he is saying statues which Francis called "the pachamama statues" are not what he called them, but instead "a strong case can be made that the naked images "represent the [naked] Blessed Virgin Mary":

"There is a strong case to be made that they [the naked images Francis called "pachamama statues"] represent the [naked] Blessed Virgin Mary."
(patheos.com/blog/davearmstrong, "'Pachamama' [?] Statues: Marian Veneration or Blasphemy Idolatry?," November 5, 2019)

How dare the so-called pro-family National Catholic Register have a writer who claims the naked images Francis called "pachamama statues" can by "a strong case to be... [naked images of] the Blessed Virgin Mary."

Maybe someone needs to organize a Catholic boycott of the National Catholic Register.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

My initial reaction to the wooden statue in question was that it depicted a pregnant woman sunbathing on a nude beach. It could never be the Blessed Mother to any Catholic. Armstrong has a good niche with Protestants but whenever he ventures outside that niche he falls flat on his face.

Vigil of the Feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

C. G. —

It’s worse than that by far, that diabolical image and it’s apologists both.

It’s another attack on the Virgin Mary by Cardinal Bergoglio and his Marian-phobic coven aka the clerical McCarrickal Homosexual Network Strangling the Church.

It’s an insult to the Immaculate Conception and Immaculate Heart to liken Her to the bloodthirsty monster-demon that is depicted by the Pachamama idol—bloody womb and all which could represent the devil to be born or the child to be sacrificed.

Only a craven and corrupt shill for the aforesaid antipope and his coven could dare liken that base gross image to Our Lady.

A reckoning is a’coming. Forget about protesting the Register—bunch of milque toasts aside from Ed Pentin. It’s time to march on Rome. Drive the coven out and oust and toss Cardinal Bergoglio into the Tiber.

Viva il Papa! ¡Viva Benedetto! Benedictus. Benedict. Pope Benedict.

“Rejoice O Virgin Mary, thou alone hast destroyed all heresies throughout the world.”

No one with one drop of devotion to Our Blessed Mother would ever suggest those images are images of their own Heavenly Mother.

Re: What Happened?

Once Mr Mark Shea (who was booted by the Register) and Mr Armstrong both wrote inspiring Catholic works. Both were unflinchingly pro-life. Then something happened?

Messrs. Shea and Armstrong now appear to hold the ordinary per-sitters in contempt. Mr Shea, once my hero, seems to have adopted the Democrat party platform.

What a waste! Hopefully i have misjudged the situation and am wrong.

God bless

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
