What is wrong with this picture?
Sixties jubilance, kiddies? Yes, another palsied altar. You might laugh, but this helter-skelter altar - in this position - is an actual set-up in a prominent Rome church.
Catholics have been rankled in recent years by so much dumbness in the Church. Meanwhile, the imponderables continue (and the uneducated laity are still expected to put up with it). Why such a galling image you ask? What pastor gave the go-ahead for such an odd drawback?
Capitalizing on the sixties, and yes, capitalizing on dumbness remains in vogue. And notice the already perfectly good (consecrated, stone) altar behind this concoction?
