ROME, December 20, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) The Vatican Nativity scene featuring a naked man, a corpse, and no sheep or oxen is the artistic offering of an abbey which is the focus of Italian LGBT activists, it has emerged.
Enquiries by LifeSiteNews have revealed that the Abbey of Montevergine, which donated the innovative Nativity of Mercy, houses the Marian image that has been adopted as patroness by LGBT activists in Italy. The abbey shrine is the annual destination of a sort of sacred and profane ancestral gay pride pilgrimage which, according to one LGBT activist, in recent years has gained the active, political participation of the LGBT community.
An official of the Vaticans Governorate has told LifeSiteNews that the Abbey of Montevergine initially proposed the original idea for the Nativity of Mercy. The Vatican discussed and developed a more detailed design with the abbey, then submitted final plans to the Secretary of State and Pope Francis for approval, which was duly granted.
The presence of the Vatican Nativity Scene for us is a reason to be even happier this year, Antonello Sannini, president of homosexual activist group Arcigay Naples, told LifeSiteNews on Tuesday. For the homosexual and transsexual community in Naples, it is an important symbol of inclusion and integration.

Church of Perversion.
They had a good run of almost 2000 years.
The Catholic Church has some real problems.
How long must we suffer this Pope who is a tool of Satan?
Francis Usurpator - servant of satan.

This is what the Pope has done to us.
When Zuck censors a photo on FB (it was probably one of that army appointed to scan posts on FB for propriety of one sort or another), it really makes one wonder. It just looked out of place in that scene.
Sad. Seriously, how can a Catholic justify staying? The pope problems probably aren't as bad as some in history by a long shot but some of this other, makes you wonder. And I'm not trying to be antagonistic; I'm seriously distraught over many facets of it, not just the latest in art.
I noted that of those seven churches in Asia in Revelation that were displeasing to Our Lord to various degrees, not one of them was told for the people to come out. Although there is that passage later, "come out of her my people". That's people the Lord considers His, being told to leave an organization which could be secular or punishments will be rendered double and can't remember the rest.
There was a time when these people would have been burned at the stake......some things just cry out for that kind of justice
Definitely a mental disorder...
They think they are so clever sneaking it in there. Bastards.
Although what you say, and this is just my opinion, is that some of it was allowed by God or even used by God to mete out just punishments.
It's supposed to be from the top down, not necessarily lethal but as a medicinal means to cleanse the church. But what do I know? I just have an opinion is all.
That is an abomination....
Church of Sodom
Ann Barnhardt has written on this at length.
There is still the Orthodox Church.
The church is irrevocably broken and lost. A bastion of perverts, socialists and misfits led by a perverse Pope doing his part to destroy the Church. I was raised Catholic, educated in Catholic schools and today feel no connection to my religion, nor do I want to.
I’m not Catholic and I don’t mean to make light of this. But around Christmas they air these public service announcements about “come back to the church” where the narrator says something like “guided by the Holy Spirit, we compiled the Bible”. I always want to ask “what other kinds of spirits are guiding the church nowadays, because there’s not much “holy” about it...
How in the world did things get turned so upside-down?
This Pope is temporary and will be replaced.
Pray for correction of this Pope and Christ Church.
