Recently during the Amazonian Synod, 5 statues of the the Pachamama idol, the earth mother goddess, revered by the Amazonian people, were placed in a chapel of the Carmelite Church of Santa Maria in Transportina, Rome.
On October 21, these statues were taken by a couple of faithful Catholics and thrown into the Tiber River.
This action was received with great joy by many Catholics, and statements of condemnation from the Vatican and Pope Francis.
