For me, the real contradiction is the symbol under which the scene is placed, the pagan phallic obelisk.

Don't freak out about the "pagan," which simply means "of the country people." All those who weren't of Israel (the Church and Her spiritual ancestors) were "pagan," and they are our ancestors as well. Besides which, the obelisk has been Christianized. From https://www.fisheaters.com/stanthonysbrief.html :


Quote:As an aside, part of these words from the Apocalypse are also inscribed at the top of the obelisk that sits in St. Peter's Square. The obelisk had been in Rome since A.D. 37, set up in what is believed by many to have been the site of the divisional wall (spina) of Caligula's Circus, where Nero's massacre of Christians took place in A.D. 67. Pope Sixtus V moved the obelisk to its present position in a move that


Quote:...celebrated the triumph of the Faith of Christ, St Peter and the apostles over pagan superstition. The proximity of the obelisk to the old basilica had always been resented as something of a provocation, almost as a slight to the Christian religion. It had stood there like a false idol, as it were vaingloriously, on what was believed to be the center of the accursed circus where the early Christians and St Peter had been put to death. Its sides, then as now, were graven with dedications to Augustus and Tiberius. On its summit was a bronze sphere believed to contain the ashes of Julius Caesar. When taken down, the sphere proved to be solid. Nevertheless, Sixtus had a bronze cross put in its place (in 1740, after repairs, a piece of the True Cross was inserted in one of the arms). Solemnly the pope had the heathen spirit of the obelisk exorcised. 'Impio cultu dicatum' he carved upon the base as a reminder of what the needle once represented, and 'Ecce Crux Domini fugite partes adverase' in proud defiance of Luther and the reformed Churches. 2  

To lump all 'pagans' into one belief system is like saying all Christians today belong to the same grouping. There were of course pagans open to Christianity when it arrived, but there were pagans who remained pagan and anti Christian.

The phallic obelisks like the one now in St Peter's Square, belonged to a paganism condemned in the Scriptures. It arose within the religion of Phallicism, the bond that united all forms of idolatry into one great system. It stems directly from sun worship, heliolatry or light worship - for example, Mithraism.

The word Helios for the sun comes from Helios the sun god as he was called, the son of Hyperion and Theia, thus the terms heliocentricism and heliolatry. In the Holy Scriptures (3 Kings 16:31-33) we are told of Baal, Bal or Bel, the sun god of the Phoenicians, characterised by the most scandalously impure rites. Then there were the sun gods of the Canaanites and Mithraists of Persia. Sun worshipping is also condemned in 4 Kings: 23:5-11 and Wisdom: 13:2, the latter lesson repeated by St Paul where he writes ‘the circle of the stars, or the great water, or the sun and moon’ were created as witness to their Creator and not ‘to be the gods that rule the world.’(Romans 1:20)

Now if the greatest historical symbol of a paganism that is condemned in the Scriptures, a paganism that had its main belief of heliocentrism, itself condemned as formal heresy by the Church in 1616 and 1633, a phallic symbol that can be 'christianised,' then why complain about a few things in that nativity scene in the same Square.

The paganism condemned in the Scriptures is alive and well in the world today. Just as that symbol made its way into St Peter's Square, the same heliocentrism made its way into the Church and State. It began the assault on the very first dogma of the Catholic Church and mankind. It laid the foundation stone for Atheism and Modernism, the reason why Catholicism is a dying religion on Earth today.

Why on earth do you think cribs like the one on display under that same 'christianised' phallic heliocemntric symbol can hide Christ among all the other symbols.
