Dutch Bishop: Amazon Synod – the intention is a new religion?

If you read the Working Document of the so-called Amazon Synod, it seems that the intended outcome for the synod is a new religion. A kind of eco-socialism, an amalgam of ecology, climate change, ecumenism, viri probati, consecration of women and, oh yes, also a single mention of Jesus, but not as Son of God,
