Pope Ponders Paganism


Not since the rule of Emperor Constantine, during the Roman Warm Era, have pagan gods been tolerated in Rome.

Before Constantine, Romans worshipped 12 main gods including Apollo (the Sun), Diana (the Moon), Flora (the plants), Uranus (the sky), Ceres (the crops), Gaia (the Earth) and of course Bacchus (wine), Venus (love) and Mars (war). Some of these gods demanded tribute and sacrifice.

Christianity, the worship of one forgiving God, slowly absorbed or eliminated its pagan rivals. The Popes in Rome came to lead a Catholic empire of Christians.

In modern times, the old Greek/Roman goddess, Gaia, has been resurrected by the world green movement.

Pope Francis seems to seek an alliance with these nature worshippers.

Unfortunately the Green wolf will never lie down with the Christian lamb.

Christians promote care for humanity especially the weak and the poor. The Gaia worshippers have subordinated humans to “nature” and their attitude to other humans ranges from contempt to deep hatred.

Under their extremist Agenda 21, the priests of Gaia would sacrifice humans by restricting their access to land, oceans, food, minerals and energy, and then concentrate the survivors in soul-destroying dormitory cities and food factories. Greens want all descendants of Adam and Eve expelled from our Gardens of Eden.

Christians generally value individual freedom and private property. The Green priesthood will not rest until there is a world government in which there is no private property and all humans are numbered, controlled and planned. They are using climate alarmism to achieve these goals.

Priests and Pontiffs have no place in dictating questions of science and engineering. Climate forecasts and energy policy should be determined by scientific enquiry and sound engineering, not by high-priests dabbling in politics.

Franky-poo is a Jesuit & there's plenty of reading material on those psycho boy lovers - founded by a mass murderer called Ignatius Loyola. (BTW, I was raised Catholic).

Its good to see Viv on religion
All pretense at reality is negated.

Can access here, not the next story - 6pm Sunday

As Viv says watch out for these people, labor (Fabians ,communists, one world govt) in concert with green's agenda 21( similar goals). Unfortunately they are getting closer to their objective, the fly in the ointment might be mohumMADists. Who'll win?

These date punching con men still have not let Galileo of the hook.

I suppose if people can be sucked in by regilion they will believe anything

Nowhere, however, is there any record of the Romans worshipping Gaia and I challenge Viv Forbes to find a single pre-Christian Roman author who even mentions that goddess. The Romans did not worship Uranus, the Latinisation of Ouranos, a Greek god; his Roman counterpart was Caelus.

“Before Constantine, Romans worshipped 12 main gods including Apollo (the Sun), Diana (the Moon), Flora (the plants), Uranus (the sky), Ceres (the crops), Gaia (the Earth) and of course Bacchus (wine), Venus (love) and Mars (war). Some of these gods demanded tribute and sacrifice.”

Rubbish.
The twelve main gods were (as Ennius listed them in hexameters):
“Juno, Vesta, Minerva, Ceres, Diana, Venus, Mars,
Mercurius, Jovi, Neptunus, Vulcanus, Apollo.”
According to Varro, another eight gods made the top twenty: Janus, Saturn, Genius, Sol, Orcus, Liber, Tellus (the closest the Romans had to Gaia) and Luna.
There were scores of other gods (including Sterquilinus, the god of shit) but, other than State ceremonies, most important for average Romans were the Lares, their household gods.

The photograph ... what can I say ... costumes ... carry-on

Laughable ... (notice the expensive watches they are wearing - somewhat detracts)

Leftist pseudo-science ... thoroughly discredited ....

You must be an air-head to swallow that drivel ...

Still I sense you have no real education ... only explanation

Another beautiful sunny but cold morning in Anglesea Victoria. The smell of wood smoke and charcoal from every second house with an open fire or pot belly stove is overwhelming. Pity the poor workers at the coal mine and power station down the road. The clean smoke generated from their workplace, even though several kilometres away and discharged 100 metres in the air, is being blamed for respiratory ill health effects, resulting in the closure of the mine and station. It will be a very cold winter for them now. Anyway time to through another log on the fire.

Nor, for that matter, do palaeontologists, Mr Flannery.

Who're out of step with reality. The facts are readily available. ..http://joannenova.com.au/ ....http://wattsupwiththat.com/

"Priests and Pontiffs have no place in dictating questions of science and engineering" ... I agree. They should revert to torturing scientists, especially "climate" ones.

next the pope will be declaring the earth is the centre of the universe and the sun revolves around it...

ND ... look at the blank expression ... that boys just an empty vessel

Never knew you were into poetry WASP ... :)

Somehow you have very little knowledge of the science of geology....name one other branch of science that can reasonably describe what the earth was like several millions of years ago...????

Viv's dictating nothing. He's merely giving an informed opinion which is something you've failed to do.

Pope Francis And Shimon Peres Discuss The Establishment Of A ‘United Nations Of Religions’
.
By Michael Snyder, on September 8th, 2014
.
......Retired Israeli President Shimon Peres has proposed a new global peace initiative to Pope Francis: A “United Nations of Religions,” given that most wars today have religious, not nationalistic, undercurrents.
The Vatican said Peres pitched the initiative during a 45-minute audience Thursday in the Apostolic Palace. The two men last met when Francis invited the then-Israeli president and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to pray for peace together in the Vatican gardens on June 8.......
.
For the first time in history, Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran will be heard at the Vatican on Sunday, in a move by Pope Francis to usher in peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
.
Francis issued the invitation to Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during his visit last week to Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority.
.
Abbas, Peres, and Francis will be joined by Jewish, Christian and Islamic religious leaders, a statement released by Peres’s spokesperson said, according to the Times of Israel.
.
And the Pope has been relentlessly reaching out to Protestant organizations.
.
Here is one example of him reaching out to American charismatics from earlier this summer…
.
Two controversial TV preachers recently met Pope Francis in an effort to work toward tearing down the ‘walls of division’ between Catholics and Protestants.
.
Kenneth Copeland and James Robison are two religious leaders in northeast Texas known for drawing huge crowds to their services and events, and who were a part of leading the group identifying as a “delegation of Evangelical Christian leaders” in its meeting with the Roman Catholic pontiff late last month.........
