By Edward Peters, JD, JCD, Ref. Sig. Ap. - A few days ago men removed some female figurines.. from a church and tossed them into the Tiber River. Vatican spokesman Paolo Ruffini dismissed the act as a “stunt”. Regardless of how one assess this act, however, I think it not accurate to describe it as a mere “stunt”… Removing these figures from a church and tossing them into the Tiber does not simply call attention to the problem of setting up such objects in a church it also removes the statues from the church and thus solves the problem of having them set up in a sacred place. Such an act, good act or bad, is more than a “stunt”, it is form of direct action against a problem.a

Rather than owning its problems or its identity as the unfiltered light of Christ, it has chosen comfort and softness.

It is mute… Perhaps the greatest problem facing today’s Church is that in its comfort it has repeatedly chosen the path of least resistance. Lying low when dealing with transgender story hour and gay clergy retreats is easier than engaging in real missionary work.
