Mafia members were recently excommunicated by Pope Francis. Is it nice and spiritually healthy? How about excommunicating also the pedophile priests and all Roman Catholics who kneel before the cross and other Roman Catholic idols? Because if the violent acts of Mafia members are primarily directed against their fellowmen, which is disobedience to the words of God, ‘oral sex’ mentality or pedophilia of catholic priests and idolatry of Roman Catholics are acts that are primarily directed against God.
In other words, Mafia’s acts of violence and pedophilia and idolatry in Roman Catholicism are both against the words of God with the latter being worst than the former considering the intention and recipient of the acts.
Notably, idolatry is forbidden in the scripture, which states among others, as follows:
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.(Exodus 20:4, English Standard Version).
8I alone am the Lord your God. No other god may share my glory, I will not let idols share my phrase. (Isaiah 42:8, TEV)
8The Lord punished his people by sending them into exile. He took them away with a cruel wind from the east. 9But Israel’s sin will be forgiven only when the stones of pagan altars are ground up like chalk, and no more incense altars or symbols of goddess Asherah are left. (Isaiah 27:8-9, TEV)
Also, note that the cross, statues and images of alleged Mother Mary, Christ and the saints, including rosary beads and strings are carved images or in likeness of anything in heaven, e.g cross being a carved image for southern cross, which is a small constellation located in heaven, and in the case of statues and images and rosary beads and strings, they are carved images of something, either in earth or underneath the sea.
Worst is the fact that the names of God, Christ, Mother Mary and the saints are being used in vain in the above idols.
And concerning ‘oral sex’ mentality or sodomy or pedophilia of pedophile priests, the scripture says:
22No man is to have sexual relations with another man; God hates that.(Leviticus 18:22,TEV)
Based on the foregoing grounds, possibly, if you excommunicate pedophile Roman Catholic priests and Roman Catholic idolaters, most probably all Roman Catholics, including the Pope as the leader of ‘cross’ believers, would in effect be excommunicated. And nobody would remain as Roman Catholic. Therefore, excommunication by the Pope is not spiritually helpful. Besides, such act would constitute grave abuse of social and political authority.
