"Neo-colonialism" in the present is being done by Islam, especially in Europe. While the synod frowns on "colonialism of the past and neo-colonialism of the present", Pope Francis approves colonization by Islam into Christendom, heartily encouraging more and more Muslim immigration into Europe. Therefore it's clear that he thinks the only bad type of colonialism is that which was done by the Church in the past. What must he think of Our Lady of Guadalupe?
The synod is a disaster for the Church which will destroy her. She will disappear like the Church in China did after Francis made his deal with the Communists. We'll have to go so far underground that we won't be able to find a Mass for miles. I'm just sitting around everyday wondering at what point Jesus will intervene and hoping Archbishop Vigano is safe wherever he is because it's more clear now than ever (after reading the Amazon synod docs) that he is in grave danger.
I quipped that the Church will be the Lost Church of Z....which makes me think that, like James Lynch (currently living in Miami), the hierarchy will not take baths anymore so that when one walks into a church building, the stench will be horrendous in more ways than one. Just think - people will be shamed for being CLEAN!
"Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. My last confession was three days ago and in that time I have bathed three times - once a day. The horror of it all! All that water wasted for just myself! I'm SO SO sorry! Please forgive me! OMG! What have I done! I promise to be more indigenous and never bathe again unless I happen to be near a stream!"
Now where's that 2013 article (by Rose Eveleth) from the Smithsonian on how to make a shrunken head? So much to learn....Oh, why bother. Maybe Ebay has some for sale. Why have a tiny relic of the True Cross when I can have an entire shrunken head to pray to my ancestors?
