Vandal in vigil to force German Church back to traditional nastiness

Vandal in vigil to force German Church back to traditional nastiness January 19, 2020

THERE’S no keeping a a good vandal down. 

Alexander Tschugguel, who became a poster boy for Catholic traditionalists when he and some cronies removed Amazonian idols from a church in the Vatican and dumped them in the River Tiber, pitched up in Munich at the weekend  to join zealots who believe that German cardinals and bishops have ‘gone round the bend.’

He was one of an “international coalition of lay Catholics” who gathered to pray in “firm protest against the German Episcopal Conference and its President Cardinal Reinhard Marx.” They are convinced that the Conference is on a wayward path of creating a “new church” that departs from Catholic teaching on priestly celibacy, contraception, homosexuality and fornication.

Still simmering over the troublesome Amazon synod, the “Pachamama expeller” spoke about how the Church “has moved closer to, rather than distanced itself from, left-leaning NGOs.

Ever since the Amazon Synod, we are hearing more and more about a ‘New Church’ with an ‘Amazonian face’ …

Throughout its two-thousand-year history, the Church has faced many challenges and has had to deal with many crises and deviations from the right path. It has only ever been able to renew itself by returning to the true teaching, and this time will be no different. It is for us to decide now how many wrong paths the Church must still go down, how much more must be destroyed before we can find our way back to the truth, to doctrine and tradition.

But the harshest words hurled at Marx came from LifeSiteNews’ hysterical editor-in-chief John-Henry Westen, above,  who accused the Cardinal Marx of having:

Blood on your hands … Cardinal Reinhard Marx you have shown yourself to be a wolf, like those prophesied by the Apostle Paul who come to devour the sheep by speaking twisted things and drawing away disciples after them. (Acts 20:29-30) In his letter to the Corinthians, St Paul called pastors like you false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising yourself as an apostle of Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:13)

Your false teaching on abortion, adultery and homosexual acts have perverted a whole generation of Catholic young people. Many of them now go on to practice abominable acts which cry out to heaven for vengeance, which will imperil their souls and make them suffer in their bodies too, all because you want to twist the truth of Christ for your own benefit.

Ouch!

But there’s more:

You want to rub shoulders with the elite of this world. You talk about helping the poor and yet you spent over 20 million US dollars renovating your residences in Munich and Rome. You speak of care for those with homosexual orientation yet you encourage the very behaviours that you know lead to AIDS and other deadly diseases and worse than that to the loss of eternal salvation. Their blood is on your hands.

Westen called on the German bishops to “reject” Marx’ heresies and called on the cardinal to repent.

    good to see the evangelicals don’t have a complete monopoly on nut-cases. We’ll know the end times are here when even the Unitarians have their share of crazies.

  • Norman Parron

    I agree the RCC should be as nasty as their BS says they should be…it is best when people see what the religion is really about instead of the phooey nice-nice they try to be! Then people can just start quitting the religions.

    All of them…

    > Amazonian idols

    Which might be a truer representation of Jesus than those skinny white men in every church.

    Ooh, Christianity is an “anybody can play” game, with every member of every sect ready and willing to condemn all the others as “false teaching”. What fun!

  • Robert McLean

    It was writ-that German cardinals and bishops have ‘gone round the bend’! Shouldn’t that be MORE around the bend?

  • Freethinker

    Yes. Priests should marry….better yet they should quit being priests.

    If there’s an afterlife, I’d prefer to be there with Xena – or Lucy Lawless.

    Hmmm, I could see a nasty expose catching all of them in the same den of sin that they found Ernst Rohm in, at the end.

    What’s become increasingly familiar about these acts of “sacrifice” is that they involve innocent others* and escalating violence to the undistinguished “other.” Her actions are no different from those of the terrorist driver on London Bridge, the sadistic torture and murder of a pregnant woman and seven children by Christian cultists in Panama, the historical extremism of Israeli political gangs and/or territorial usurpers of Palestinian lands, or a white robed Islamic fanatic strapping on a bomb to walk into a market, mosque, or schoolyard.

    I think our own – and other governments – need to reexamine the nature of domestic terrorism, because in virtually every case the act is perpetrated by someone invoking the nativist higher power of the “Desert Religions” (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), and I am at a loss to find the same self/theist initiated behaviors by the principal Asian religions (i.e., Hinduism, Buddhism, or the putative “animism” of Taoism, et al.).

    * I won’t argue that some of these acts can be narrowly called political/asymmetrical warfare, etc., only that the vast majority claim “divine” inspiration for their murders.

    This is a mass psychosis – a necrotizing fascitis of the soul – and it’s killing us all.

    There are – come down from a mountain carrying carved stone tablets, rise from the dead, or spring into heaven on the back of a horse perched on a big rock – but of course we’d have to have it ‘splained to us by Faux Noise, dissected by shouting head religionists, and inculcated into one canon or another, with the end result of nothing changing…

    I read and studied the Roman Catholic church involvement in Rome and Germany during the 1930s and their support of the Nazi Party I’m not surprised at all by their continuing antics.

    And our designated Catholic troll See Noevo hasn’t been seen on Patheos during this time. Coincidence?!
