A Picture of the Bacchic Gospel


       This stock photograph by Genaro Molina of the Los Angeles Times appeared in the print version of the newspaper next to the July 14 2007 story about the Roman Church's latest proclamation that it is the one true church. It was taken in 2005 at Vatican City's Paul VI Hall where the pope held court for pilgrims and journalists.

       You can't help but admire the whole look here.

       I'm sure the big statue thing is supposed to be Jesus, but that's not Him.


       It is, however, another Jesus.


       Can you tell which one? I'm not sure, what do you think?

       I think I know.

       It is the one that is Bacchus, the Roman god of wine and revelry.

       It fits perfectly, if we presume that the Roman Catholic Church is indeed the ecclesiastical legacy of Cain with all the visually stunning spectacles that accompany the vast administration of the lives and conduct of sinners.

       What strikes me is the brazen depiction of a Roman god contrasted with the stance Benedict is taking just underneath him, which is almost identical to that of the idol. Is he so bold as to impersonate his own god? Why I imagine he'd do nothing less.
