The Oecumenical Spirit


As we all know, it's not "a liturgy" without

Creepy Giant Puppets!

While the purpose of the meso-American theme in the procession in the video above remains obscure (it was a meeting of Presbyterians in Minneapolis) it reminded me of a comment some years ago by an homosexualist activist who had come to a talk in Toronto by Peter Kreeft to confront him on his dastardly intolerance.

The good doctor had told us of the peaceful animist religious beliefs blood sacrifices of the ancient Mexicans, in which hundreds of thousands were killed by having their hearts ripped out and their heads cut off.

Our young friend in the pink feather boa responded,

"Well, that could be a beautiful ritual too..."

Those wicked Conquistadors!
