'Moloch is a Canaanite god in the Old Testament that’s associated with human sacrifice, specifically the sacrifice of human children. Some scholars even believethat Moloch, of Molekh, is an invention or an attempt to conceal the possible fact that Judahite (Jehovah) worship of YHWH in the eight and seventh century B.C.E. also included child sacrifice.
This ”god’ is now in display at the entrance of the Colosseum in Rome as part of a secular historical exhibition. The exhibition is part of a larger exhibit that’s dedicated to Ancient Rome’s historic adversary, the city of Carthage, and it’s being displayed and organized by Parco Archeologico del Colosseo. The exhibition will run until March 29th, 2020.
“A reconstruction of the terrible deity Moloch, linked to Phoenician and Carthaginian religions and featured in the 1914 film Cabiria (directed by Giovanni Pastore and written by Gabriele D’Annunzio) will be stationed at the entrance to the Colosseum to welcome visitors to the exhibition,” stated a press release about the exhibit.
Multiple media outlets that cover these types of topics, like Life Site News, are reporting that Catholics are outraged that a representation of this pagan god sits outside a place where Christians were brutally tortured and killed.
“We were so excited the day we decided to go to the Colosseum,” Alexandra Clark told LifeSiteNews via email. She and her sister Tiffany were looking forward to visiting the site of Christian martyrdom.
“But the moment we got there the sight that greeted us was horrifying! Standing guard over the entrance was the colossal pagan statue of Moloch. It was placed in that prime spot so that everyone that entered into the Colosseum had to pass it,” she continued.'
