    Is there any reason why anti-Pope anti-Francis holds up a cross with a snake on it?

  • I don't think it's a snake...I don't know what it is.  It's weird as _____.

  • He's an Italian sculptor.  I'd only be shocked if he was a married family man with no tattoos.

    Here is the entire second picture.

    Could there be a good reason for Francis to be kissing the ornament while a cardinal and bishop laugh at the gesture?

  • Icterus is right, it isn't a snake. The curved element draped over the cross is actually a cubist outline of a human figure. It appears to be based on this:





    This is Salvador Dali's drawing of the Crucifixion of Christ which he presented as a gift to the prisoners on Rikers Island. All the same, what Francis is holding is a very inappropriate Crucifix. Cubism is not simply another manner in which an artist can approach the theme of Christ's atoning death. The technique fails to contemplate the subject matter in its proper significance and it invariably profanes what is holy. The cubists and surrealists were able to insinuate their profanation into the artistic mainstream without raising the objection of the majority of Christians, because their work induces a quiet, solipsistic, almost Buddhistic mood of reflection which is actually a highly refined form of egotism and very pleasurable to human flesh. It gives one the sensation of being religious without humility or contrition, without acknowledging revealed truth. These, the Resurrexifixes, and other suchlike distortions of the meaning of Christ's death are emblematic of the Cult of Man and proof positive that it now reaches into the Vatican itself.

    Jewish Masons that have knowingly and systematically snatched as many souls as possible to join them in Hell for all eternity?  

    "We are telling them we are apostate heretics to their faces and they still don't get it."  :roll-laugh1:

    Just a guess.  Kasper also seemingly is always laughing like this except when he is lighting the Jewish manure, then he is VERY serious.

  • Considering the ornament on the cross is an abstraction of Our Lord, that makes the laughter of the prelates in the second picture all the more egregious. Does it suggest mockery to any of you?

    LoT - your answer is a good guess.

    Thank you.  Without judging the inner culpability of their souls, it does suggest mockery to me.  I believe that is exactly what it is.  If those "prelates" were my children they would be in trouble.  I'll leave it at that.

  •  :barf:
    Why didn't he wear the clown nose for the pose?
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.
