FUC'd UP: New Season. New Nuts. Same Craziness You're Used to from Church Arrogant TV


Michael "Merkin" Voris is back with a brand new look and a brand new set (not to be confused with a brand new pair), to talk about the state of the Church. Michael will be joined by Catholic reactionaries luminaries from around the nation to kick off the latest season of Fuc'd Up. One luminary is a priest from a diocese in the Northeast. Check out this luminary priest's homilies here. (Father D suggests January 18, 2015 on Vocations. Talk about a long and winding road!)  You can find Father's online radio show over at Gaily Forward Forward Boldly Radio. 


FRIDAY NIGHT UPDATE:  A picture is worth a thousand words.  When I asked about Father Manchester a source close to Church Arrogant TV replied, "This picture tells you all you need to know."


OH... A Warrior Priest!  OF. COURSE.

Also featured will be Steve Jalsevac of LifeSite News and founder of the new eMANgelization, Matthew Christoff.  A couple other folkz with either lots of spare time on their hands, or who have found a way to make their religious convictions into a full time job, and a retired congressman, who obviously failed to hitch a ride last time the Mmm-Bop Comet sailed over California, known not only for its fruits but, as the Congressman proves, also for its nuts.


Much like Father D, Church Arrogant TV suffered its own flood over the holidays.  It's a good thing that "Merk" Voris stopped by the studio to clean out his browser history pick up additional Christmas decorations or much greater damage would have been done.
Here. You watch it. Otherwise you'll accuse me of making it up.



Did you really watch the entire thing?  Gosh, I hope not. That's dangerous boring stuff there.  Well, in case you did, here's a little "pick me up" hymn from then guyz at the new eMANgeliztion.

  2. Here's some lovely info about that priest Voris has on his show:

    Woman says priest told her son to 'rot in hell'

    1. I heard Father Manchester praise his bishop to high heaven, so I looked him up.

      With an attitude like that, I hope the bishop loves mobsters and lobsters, because, "without a doubt," he ain't leaving Lil' Rhodey any time soon!

  3. Ohhh Father D! The 5 minutes that I choked down of that homily on vocations were incoherent mush, shouted at the congregation. Those poor folks in Rhode Island will get YEARS off purgatory for suffering through this dribble every Sunday. Is this the "new" clergy? Ugh.

    1. Yes. It is the "new clergy". Of course, generalizations are wrong including this one, but from what I have experienced, the younger priests are impressed with their own holiness and the inherent rottenness of everyone else.
      These are boys who are playing church. Regular people are unimpressed and dismiss them as the fools that they act like.

    2. Listen to Father Manchester's interviews. He's got a persecution complex a mile long--his "vocation story" is just a long list of liberals and women who tried to prevent God from fulfilling his destiny by making him a priest. He also claims to be visited by demons who pin him to his bed and make him forget the words of the rosary. Not making any of this up--

  4. No fear of generalization here. There are very few exceptions to the freak show the priesthood is fast becoming with these pompous pious frauds parading around in their clerical finery with their arrogance and self-righteousness worn proudly on their sleeves. And while places like Providence with their fellow-traveler bishops gladly welcome these clowns and take them in often from saner dioceses that have expelled them, even poor Rochester with its new neo-con bishop is infiltrated with their ilk.

    1. According to a Providence parish website Rochester might be better off than one thinks.

      http://www.churchofsaintaugustineprov.com/about/priests/bishop-matano/

      How many days a week is the Bishop of Rochester in the chancery office?
      THAT is either one long commute or one hell of a travel budget and some excellent Frequent Flyer miles being racked up.

    2. If only it were true ... that he would seek early retirement .... rumor has it he is on the phone daily to his mentor and patrono Cardinal Burke -- who nevertheless failed to get him to succeed him in St. Louis -- perhaps Burke needs an assistant bishop to assist him with the Knights of Malta .... lost of dressing up there too!

  5. Father Manchester (is that a real name?) has a podcast/radio program he calls "Romanus Contra Mundum" which sounds more like the title of a video game than a sane platform for education and discussion.
    These NuPriests aren't 'conservative', exactly; they're more like Romantic fantasists obsessed with building for themselves a Lord of the Rings theme park (no women allowed - just like those books, phew!).
    I remember, as seminarian, bringing communion to people in the hospital. One older man told me his doubts about the Church, explaining that once everything was in Latin but now it's not. You could conclude from that man's testimony that the Church should not have changed anything - clearly those changes perturbed people's faith. But, taking a step back, you could also conclude that the Church should stop trying to convince people that it "never changes", a falsehood that periodically causes great suffering whenever the Church must change and then cover up that fact.
    Another thing: how long can a fervent belief in the power of onto-magic to fulfill you emotionally last? Five years? I feel like you either drop out, or compromise your earlier zeal and become pastoral, or compromise your earlier zeal and become a hypocrite. Sadly, many will believe this is a sign of personal weakness for which they'll feel guilty and ashamed - feelings that encourage hiding and dishonesty.

    1. You are correct.
      And it is the hiding and dishonesty (with ourselves) that contribute to the sex abuse scandals that we hear about all of the time. Some of these new "boys" are abusers in waiting.

    2. I want to know what happened to the screening process, when a guy who claims three different saints told him personally he should be a priest, and who claims demons sit on his chest at night, is a pastor of a parish. And who screams "you'll burn in hell" at an obviously disabled confirmation student.

    3. He is consecrated a bishop.

  6. I see that lard ass is eating his way through D.C., strolling through the galleries, and sucking up to a Bishop.
    Oh! The trying life of a priest of God.

  8. While in Our Nation's Capital (I think I'd prefer Cowtown, Wisconsin) Zelda had another mass at the foldingchair - this time with Bishop Paprocki of Springfield (d'oh!), the Illinois Homosexorcist who performed an exorcism of Illinois's gay marriage law. I'm not exactly sure whose demonic possession was the target of Paprocki's exorcism but it must have been by the book (say the black, do the...) because he was honored with a post-March pub photo with Zed.

  9. Zippo the shameless brown noser. Stuff the march, it was the episcopal photo op with the lunatic would be exorcist followed by the superior Nipponese chow the Lard wanted.

  10. HA no kidding folks that sick fuck Zuhlsdorf, who said he was so sick he should be in bed, posted pictures of his martini. There's not a single picture of him on that march (did he go?). But there is a picture of his lunch and his booze.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Has anyone found any pictures of Z actually at the March? I found it strange he qualified that his pictures were "after the crowd thinned out," like he knew people were going to figure out he wasn't there. How much you want to bet he went to the Pontifical mass and then went drinking?

    1. You know I'm not one to defend much of what Father Z does.
      There is much to criticize for sure.
      I do not doubt he attended the March for Life. Hey, another opportunity to kiss some hierarchical hiney. Much like the Rome SP pilgrimage, I'm certain he led a group (as the tour paid his room and board) even though they were not pictured on the blog. Privacy issues, etc. I think he's a beggar and a schemer but not an outright liar.

  12. Go to confession! ....Father.January 24, 2015 at 12:06 PM

    The diocese of Rhode Island released a statement saying that they "had spoken to Father Manchester about the incident." This happened about 10 months ago.
    According to this article, Father Roman Manchester is still all smiles:

      He's already in Providence. The only worse place would be what?
      Rochester?

    2. Friends in Rochester tell me that besides being small-minded the Bishop is so short his mitre is one of those orange striped traffic cones so you can see him over the snow drifts.

  13. Well, it's a little more like the Infant of Prague (He's the one on the left):

  14. Fr. Manchester was transferred from that parish where the incident occured in July and "rewarded" with a larger inner-city parish!

    1. OK people, for those not aware of standard operating procedure, standard clerical transfers usually happen in late spring early summer. Usually multiple transfers and new assignments all at once.

      This is a rather unusual time for a promotion. Like when I was bounced out of the formation program when the old troll pastor who had been hitting on me caught me fooling around with the young associate and went so ballistic the secretary and housekeeper heard him crying. The pastor went into treatment and a two year leave of absense, I went home, and the associate I was caught penetrating was sent to the North American College and now works in the chancery.

      Pastor suddenly retires. New pastor named. A young priest ordained less than ten years is named pastor replacing the newly promoted pastor at his former parish? Something smells funny.
