… Interesting how this is considered wicked idolatry,
but no one raises an eyebrow at this.
Yes, I’m still in a cranky mood.
I thought the exact same thing when the old guy was processing between the Giants players and they were rubbing and kissing the “idol.”
I don’t watch football, but I did see the last half-hour of the Super Bowl and that moment. Mom and I, watching it was her idea, were both thinking that about it being like idol worship. I think I even mentioned I’d heard of sociologists who studied American-football as a quasi-religion and maybe that seemed plausible to me at that moment.
I tend to think the opposite. There are so many people who I run across on blogposts who are anti-Catholic; you know, the whole “The Catholic Church is the ‘whore of Babylon’, not Christian, idol-worshippers” thing. It’s amazing that in this day and age, there are still Christians (much less non-Christians) who actually believe that drivel. I spend more of my online comment time refuting anti-Catholic rants than anything else.
Well I see a fair amount of that online, but online people will express things they would not in real life. At least I’m that way. In life I mostly avoid any political or religious arguments.
I do still see or hear a fair amount, in life, of people who think we
Worship Mary as a Goddess or see her as fully equal to Jesus. Are not Christian because, “Catholics don’t believe in the Bible.” Are not Christian because, “Catholics don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus.” Believe saints having magical powers separate from God.
Because one is free and one is earned.
I think we will soon see full blown Catholic persecution in this country/world. C’mon Remnant, Church Militant, faithful Catholics (whatever you want to call us) let’s get energized with the Holy Spirit for prayer, fasting and suffering for our Faith.
Hey, Sis ! ♥
What a sad commentary on the state of the world. We must live in it, but not be of it.
