As mentioned in a previous thread, is the practice of charging parishoners to pray to a plastic doll, as they do in Zappopan, and Guadalupe, God's plan for bestowing grace ? Or is it a grevious error ? I am really interested in hearing a defense for this. My vote is error. Worse than error, it is purposefully leading people away from the true gospel, and I cannot feel anything but utter contempt for the RCC for their part in this. We often hear about the good charity work the church does around the world, but when it's funded by this practice, is it doing God's work ? Does God condone this ?
