Vasai priest Fr. Thomas D’Souza worships Ganesha
As we can see from the following six files, worship of Ganesha is rampant among our “Catholic” religious across the nation, in seminaries, in religious orders and in different dioceses. Even a Cardinal is guilty of it:

For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils…
The Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible
For all other gods are worthless idols…
(Even the syncretistic) St. Pauls 2008 New Community Bible
St. Paul’s teaching on Christians’ being “all things to all men” does not give licence to believers to participate in idol worship and pagan rituals, no matter what some liberal or modernist interpretations might say even using a sentence or two from Nostra Aetate (#2) or other Pontifical Documents in isolation from the context.
I prefer to reflect on our ‘jealous’ God’s many warnings to His Chosen People especially in the Old Testament books of Exodus and Deuteronomy. He wanted the people of Israel to maintain not their racial purity but also their spiritual purity. He knew that any interest by the Israelites in the religious activities of the neighbouring tribes would lead to the assimilation of their rituals, practices and even adoption of their gods, and to monumental disaster to the Jewish people, and this is exactly what happened several times over.
“You will be lured into following them*.
Do not inquire regarding their gods, ‘How did these nations worship their gods? I, too, would do the same’.” Deuteronomy 12:30, New American Bible
*The New Jerusalem Bible: “Beware of being entrapped into copying them.“
Whenever that passage comes to my mind, I like to imagine that God was saying “Do not EVEN inquire regarding their gods.“
The Philippines Bishops’ Conference’s Christian Community Bible translation reads as “Do not look at their gods, saying…“
The Knox Translation, Catholic, 1955, reads “Do not hanker after their observances.“
Since God does not change and truth does not change — though the ‘father of lies’ manifests his evil designs in different disguises and through different means according to the times to deceive those people of God who are unwary — do not God’s warnings hold true even today? Inculturation and interreligious dialogue
can be instruments
of witnessing to Jesus Christ and His Gospel (John 14:6, Matthew 28: 19, 20) and herald God’s Kingdom on earth, but sadly they are being grossly abused by the clergy who end up paying obeisance to pagan deities such as Ganesh (Ganesha) or Ganpati (Ganapati) or Vinayakar (in Tamil Nadu).
The following image circulated recently on WhatsApp shows how widespread this spiritual depravity is in the Indian Church, and the danger posed to the souls of our children and grandchildren through the Hinduisation of the Church in India.
The priest paying homage to the idol of a Hindu “god” in the photograph is reportedly Fr. Thomas D’Souza of the Vasai diocese who teaches on the subject of “Indian Religions” at the St. Pius X Seminary in Goregaon, Mumbai. The image is not clear, but my Hindu neighbours believe that it is Ganesha. (Feedback required)

Dear Most Rev. Bishop Felix Machado,
Could you please confirm to me that the priest in the picture (see attached file and also here below) is Fr. Thomas D’Souza of your diocese?
Also, please let me know which Hindu deity he is paying obeisance to, as the image is not clear, and where and when did this event occur.
