Not fooling anyone

Not fooling anyone

The San Francisco archdiocese representative said that they would be removing the pantheistic prayer to the spirits of the four compass points and Mother Earth, but they didn’t. Instead, the “prayer” remains as is, they just removed the names “Spirit of the North”, “Spirit of the East,” “Mother Earth”, and so on. How stupid they must think we are.

Take out the “spirits” being addressed, and it still remains a pantheistic blasphemy propagated by the Archdiocese of San Francisco. And even if they remove it from the web site, it doesn’t erase the fact that they used it in a public ceremony. They have to do a lot more to repair the damage done here. A public apology, or even a recognition that they did something wrong, would be a start.
