Bits and Pieces

Governor Jerry Brown of California says that if Trump wins he will build a wall around California.  No need to, Jerry.  There is a place with walls you can go and live right now without spending a nickel.  And those walls have nice padding all around them.

CDF head Cardinal Muller says that Pope Francis is not a "professional theologian".  Your Eminence, I believe we have understood that for the last three trying years.

Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood has endorsed Hillary Clinton.  So has the Boston Strangler.

The Vatican has "gone dark" for one hour on March 19th in a fit of ecological awareness.  I would suggest the Vatican has been in the dark for a lot longer than one hour.

The Vatican is also planning a sort of super compost pile as a show of solidarity with the earth worshipers.  I can think of quite a few ecclesiastical mutterings from the Vatican that could fit comfortably in a compost pile.

Saintly Hollywood has produced a film about Catholic child abuse.  For some reason, Corey Haim was not included in the production, nor was it produced by David Geffen.

The Catholic Church continues to collapse worldwide in attendance, teaching and living the Faith.  But fear not: prominent Cardinals are going after guys who grill hamburgers on a Weber grill in their back yards.

Fat, jolly Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Clown Prince of the Catholic Church, is extremely concerned about child abuse.  But not so concerned about the homosexual child molesters with clerical collars in his diocese.

The world loves Pope Francis and delights in his every word, offering him huzzas, prizes and adulatory prose.  I do seem to recall some words from Jesus Christ about the world liking you a little too much.

If the Republicans succeed in taking out Mr Trump and denying him the nomination, one way or the other, with the help of George Soros of course, your next president will be Hillary Clinton.

Suppose they actually made a movie in the beautiful medium of 70 mm film and nobody came?  Ask Quentin Tarantino.

Catholic Blogdom is outdoing itself in infantile exuberance by giving us such thought-provoking and intelligent posts such as "10 Unbelievably Awesome Acts of Mercy".

The Pope met with the Russian Patriarch.  May we hope that Kirill knocked some sense into him?

The Peeping Tom Community is thrilled with the actions of some US mayors in allowing them into the Ladies Room.  Could it have been much more twisted and absurd in Rome when it fell?

Do we now have to add the Peeping Tom Community to the list: LGBTQLSMFTPTXYZPUSOB?  Have they been officially recognized by the Supreme Court yet?

Blaise Cupich is the poor man's Rembert Weakland.

A psychopathic lesbian harridan has been put in charge of the US Northern Command.  The world and its wimpy men celebrate.  Russia snickers. Real women mourn.  (Real men mourn, too.)

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: Mary Poppins reigns at St Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha.  Jesus Christ Our King, not so much.

Barack Obama announces his new pick to replace Scalia.  The announcement was not made in front of the president's favorite Bath House.

The National Health Scotland organization has discovered that fathers have something to do with raising children.

Tinpot Cardinal Kasper is so excited over this newest revolution in the Church that Francis is ushering in, one even groovier than Vatican II, that he is losing control.  Stock in adult diapers companies has just gone sky high.

Instead of releasing the Pope's exhortation on his Synod of Sodomy on the Feast of St Joseph, March 19, it is now announced that it will be released the first week in April.  Please God they will release it on April Fool's Day.

Thanks, Anon. I have to laugh at all this once in awhile to keep me from crying.

Aged parent, your reply to Anon is interesting as your response to all this madness is telling it seems. I feel much as you do about all this madness. My comment was going to be " this is sadly funny". That feeling makes sense to me. Let's hope Fools don't rush in in April...

And Canada now has as Prime Minister a snow-board instructor with nice hair and who is ushering in euthanasia, prostitution, marijuana and economic disaster.

Every once in awhile I feel like escaping this US madhouse and escaping to Canada. I guess nowhere is a safe haven anymore, nowhere you can go to live in relative peace.

I wonder if the more these cut-rate Stalins like you have in Canada and we have in the USA overreach, the more likely there will eventually be a backlash. Hard to say. Anyway, a Blessed Easter to you and yours, and God's blessings on your wonderful, vital blog.

Thanks, aly. Sometimes, one simply has to laugh in order to keep sane.

I have always had the laughing response to sometimes profoundly serious events ever since childhood. Of course, it is a 'nervous' response. At least I have grown out of the 'hysterical laughing' bit where I used to practically roll on the floor and just couldn't stop. Still, it is at times, except for the people that really know me, embarrassing. I do cry however, after the laughing has subsided. The absurdities that face us now are so completely insane, that my sides are aching most of the time. Jesus have MERCY on us!

Thanks, TLM. I know what you mean. And I cry with you.

A Blessed Easter.

Excellent bits and pieces.
It's hard to always turn the other cheek, isn't it ?
