A Lutheran Pastor peddling "The Goddess Rosary"?

I am indebted to Fr Marco Vervoost (an Anglo-Catholic priest who studied at Luther Seminary with me—go figure why so many of who went through Sem at that time have ended up either in the Catholic Church, or in the catholic wing of the Anglican Church) for this little gem on his Heretics Anonymous page. Follow the links.

Some protestants will say "Look: that's where Catholicism leads you." Answer is: Nope. That's where you end up as a Protestant if you are deprived of the personal Motherhood of Mary.

Note that the "Goddess Rosary" does not name Mary. It isn't about Mary. Mary is decisively written out of the rosary prayer just as the name of her Son Jesus is written out. There is no way this prayer can have any claim to be Christian. It is completely gnostic. Totally disincarnate. If it isn't "anti-Christ" it is certainly "anti-Mary". Shiver...

Be afraid. Very afraid—if you are a Lutheran…

A post like that deserves my coming out of the woodwork and onto the comments page! I need only point to, say, the appeal from some Catholics to "let this Lent be a Brokeback Lent" or maybe to the gutting out of magnificent churches by Fr. Vosko for the sake of 'theatre in the round' modern designs, or to Cardinal Mahony's public invitation for the Rainbow Sashers to attend Mass to also warn Catholics that they too should be afraid!

In fairness this is a congregation of the ELCA in America. I doubt very much one would find this kind of syncretism in the LCMS.

Further, the Catholic Church in the U.S. is hardly immune to this kind of crypto-Christianity.

Just look at what some of the religious orders and the radical positions of Father Richard Rohr, et al.

Many lay Catholics have no problem incorporating new age spirituality into their Catholic belief system.

"Just look at what some of the religious orders and the radical positions of Father Richard Rohr, et al. have done to change Catholic spirituality in the U.S."
