The Thinking 

A Vatican Light Show

December 8, 2015



“POPE” Francis and his counterfeit church in Rome deserve credit for doing everything humanly possible to let the world know they are not Catholic. The latest is a “climate change” light show on the exterior walls of St. Peter’s Basilica today. This hideous spectacle, during the second week of Advent and on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, brought cheesy totalitarian art to a new level. It was called “Fiat Lux: Illuminating Our Common Home” and was put together by the UN-affiliated World Bank Group, Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Inc., the Li Ka Shing Foundation, Obscura, and Okeanos. What do any of these outfits have to do with the Catholic Church? Nothing. The whole thing reeks of globalist corporate branding. These are the same people responsible for an equally ugly light show on the Empire State Building this summer that featured endangered animals and the Hindu goddess Kali (below).

It’s a lot easier to care about cute animals and bad weather than about temptation, sin and spiritual combat. But ultimately this isn’t about the extinction of snow leopards and whales. It’s about power — not for the Church, but for the consortium of banks and global government agencies that will come to the rescue in the alleged climate crisis. “Pope” Francis, with the publication of his environmentalist encyclical letter Laudato Si, has been busy creating the religious branch of the UN and this is his artistic statement, ugliness being one of the signature characteristics of the Vatican II Church. Be assured, however, that lots of people are going to rave about it. There’s no accounting for taste. It’s one of the first things to go when truth doesn’t matter.

[Update: Lifesite News reports on criticism of the show and has background on the sponsors.]
