Well, now we are hearing that Pope Francis was not offended by the “Commie Crucifix” and brought it back with him:
Francis, an Argentine Jesuit, said Espinal was well-known among his fellow Jesuits as a proponent of the Marxist strain of liberation theology. The Vatican opposed it, fearing that Marxists were using liberation theology’s “preferential option for the poor” as a call for armed revolution against oppressive rightwing regimes that were in power in much of Latin America in the 1970s and 1980s.
Francis added that he brought the crucifix home with him.Go here to read the rest. You wouldn’t know from the Pope’s comments that Communism has always been virulently anti-Catholic and oppressed the Church wherever it has taken root. The Pope calls the Commie Crucifix “protest art”. I think the mildest term that the souls of the tens of millions of Catholics murdered by Marxists would apply to it would be blasphemous.
