    A video has been posted online showing a man taking so-called “Pachamama” statues from the church of Santa Maria in Transpontina in Rome and throwing them in the River Tiber.

    The YouTube video shows an unidentified man removing the statues from the church before placing them on the edge of the Ponte Sant’Angelo and pushing them into the river below. The description indicates that the events took place on the morning of Monday, October 21.

    The figure has generated great controversy since first appearing at a tree-planting ceremony at the start of the synod. A woman presented it to the Pope as “Our Lady of the Amazon”, but the photo agency Getty described it as a statue of “Pachamama”, an Andean goddess.

    He forgot to gather up and throw all the worship statues of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus into the Tiber as well. Too busy playing Pacmania.

    Just after idols today. I wonder what Pope Francis will do about this? His Amazon Synod featured these tribal idols. They say that the pro-choice Ford Foundation is picking up part of the bill for this pagan synod that seeks to ordain women and show respect for some of the most warlike tribes in the world where child abuse is rampant.
