Anti-Catholic Frisco funds public snake god sculpture

A front-page teaser heading in today's San Francisco Chronicle reads, "Aztec Snake God Lords It Over a Mission District Mini-Park."

What a typical headline for San Francisco.

The story itself (click on this post's title), in the newspaper's Home & Garden section, is headlined, "Garden Snake: A piece of the bigger picture." The 24th and York Street Mini-Park in San Francisco's Mission District now features a giant mosaic-covered concrete sculpture of the Aztec snake god Quetzalcoatl (a Nahuatl name meaning "quetzal bird-feathered serpent").

Quetzalcoatl was not one of the worst Aztec gods, but the trouble is, he was an Aztec god.

Photos show innocent little children climbing on the giant snake's 10-foot-long head.

This funding of a sculpture of a pagan deity in a city whose supervisors' track record includes the issuing of an extremely anti-Catholic diatribe-resolution (which federal district judge Marilyn Hall Patel just ruled constitutional) says a lot about the USA's descent into the demonic.

The Chronicle story says Frisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, escorted by mounted police, attended the dedication of the pagan sculpture "one Sunday last month."

Think Archbishop Niederauer, Cardinal Mahony and the rest of California's bishops will defend their flock by complaining about this blatant misuse of taxpayers' dollars? Or will they praise it as a manifestation of "diversity?"

"I Am the Lord, thy God; thou shalt not have false gods before Me."

Yes, and Pope Benedict's recently appointed Niederauer; in keeping with his predecessor, Niederauer, is in close with these so called Supervisors.

We need to have Our Lady come and do some crushing again!

I would not expect to see the 'princes of the church' in California step up to the plate.

perhaps it could be praised for what it of imbuing it with evil.

Dear Anonymous 10:09 a.m.,

I understand your point, but we have to remember that public-funded art sometimes is used for evil purposes, such as the statues and monuments that glorified the mass-murdering totalitarianism of the USSR and still glorify the tyranny of Red China.

Also, we are not the ones doing the imbuing with evil; witness the Chronicle heading, "Aztec snake god lords it over..." Think about that word they chose, "lords."

A giant snake is not appropriate anyway for a children's playground and family park.

Another thought: If the city had funded a Catholic sculpture, we can bet the secularists would have objected and even sued to halt it. They would never say, "Oh, it's just art, it's okay." They would know the sculpture's religious significance cannot be ignored.

The religious significance of this "art" is clear considered in the context of the MeCha movement, a neo-pagan, anti-American group, that is in favor of secession of all former Spanish lands.

Dear Boots,

Thanks for writing. That's a good point, that we shoud not ignore the significance that other grouos place in such public "art."

Im a Catholic and I don't see any problem with this. The children in the photographs seem to be enjoying themselves with the statue.
We cant protest displays of other religions.
