Ousted Bolivian President Reportedly Chief Promoter of Pachamama at Amazon Synod

Edward Pentin has tweeted that Evo Morales, the recently ousted president of Bolivia, was a major promoter of including the Pachamama idols in the Amazon synod.  Francis reportedly met with Morales on at least 4 occasions since 2015.  People may recall that Morales gave Francis a bizarre hammer and sickle crucifix in 2015.

Morles’ tweet translation:

We begin the month of #Pachamama with a thank you offering. During each Friday of August, we perform this ritual to thank the generosity of the #MadreTierra. These offerings are part of the identity of our people.
