It’s still considered “theft” according to the Commandments and Aquinas which needs to be Confessed. As for Bergoglio, unrepentant sin against the First Commandment is a Mortal Sin and will lead to eternal damnation.
Wrong. So, according to you, someone would have to confess stealing a scalpel from an abortion clinic?
Theft involves dispossessing someone of a good which they RIGHTFULLY possess. So, for example, if someone stole my car, and I went and "stole" it back, that is not theft, because they did not rightfully possess the car. They had no claim in justice to possession of the vehicle. Similarly, one can have no claim to possessing something that is evil or bad.
Those idols have no right to exist, and no one has the right to possess them. Possessing them is against the express will of God (the First Commandment), so no one has a right to possess them and no one can possess them in justice.
