(Tea Party 247) – The pagan idol of Old Testament times to whom babies were sacrificed, Moloch, has been erected at the entrance of the Roman Colosseum as part of a secular historic exhibition.
This is the same ancient site where Christians were slaughtered in masse for refusing to denounce the Christian God and slaves were made to fight to the death for the pleasure of the crowd.
This is also the same god that Hillary Clinton joked (?) that she would be sacrificing a chicken to in an email to John Podesta released in the famous 2016 Wikileaks email drop.
The statue has alarmed Christians, particularly Catholics, as it was erected just nine days before the Amazon Synod and the subsequent scandal over the veneration of the Pachamama idol at the Vatican, Life Site News reports.
The statue of Moloch, worshipped by both the Canaanites and the Phoenicians, is part of an exhibit dedicated to Ancient Rome’s once-great rival, the city of Carthage. The large-scale exhibition, titled Carthago: The immortal myth, runs until March 29, 2020.
“A reconstruction of the terrible deity Moloch, linked to Phoenician and Carthaginian religions and featured in the 1914 film Cabiria (directed by Giovanni Pastore and written by Gabriele D’Annunzio) will be stationed at the entrance to the Colosseum to welcome visitors to the exhibition,” stated a press release about the exhibit.
The statue of Moloch was erected nine days prior to the opening of the Amazon Synod, which was plagued with controversy from the beginning after a ceremony in the Vatican Gardens involving the pagan goddess “Pachamama” was held in the presence of Pope Francis and top-ranking prelates.
In the ceremony, participants prostrated themselves before wooden statuettes of the fertility goddess indigenous to South America. The statuettes were kept as part of an exhibit in the Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina until they were thrown into the Tiber by Austrian Catholic Alexander Tschugguel on Oct. 21. Afterward, one copy of the mass-produced figures was kept in the church.
The presence of the statue at the Roman Colosseum was naturally upsetting due to Christian history there.
Some Catholics are distressed that the pagan god Moloch has been erected at the entrance to the Colosseum, which is one of many amphitheaters where Christians were tortured and executed for the entertainment of the pagan crowds.
“We were so excited the day we decided to go to the Colosseum,” Alexandra Clark told LifeSiteNews via email. She and her sister Tiffany were looking forward to visiting the site of Christian martyrdom.
“But the moment we got there the sight that greeted us was horrifying! Standing guard over the entrance was the colossal pagan statue of Moloch. It was placed in that prime spot so that everyone that entered into the Colosseum had to pass it,” she continued.
The world is turning to idolatry. As the validity of Judeo-Christian cultures fades from the mainstream, so do the values, and as ancient pagan idols like Moloch are introduced more into the mainstream, so are those values, like child sacrifice, a practice we engage in on an institutionalized level here in the US as abortion clinics continue to slaughter unborn babies by the hundreds of thousands every year.
