CONGRATS YOU LUCKY BASTARDS!

You know, it's always a joy to surf the blogosphere during my down time. Especially fun sometimes is viewing the links that people send my way.   Some of the most interesting items cross my screen. 

Business Insider recently posted an article on the most meaningful jobs in America these U.S.A.  


To compile its latest list, PayScale asked over 2 million professionals whether their work is meaningful, and ranked almost 500 professions based on the percentage of people in each of those jobs who answered "yes." 

You will never guess what number one was! 


1. Clergy !!!!!!
1. Clergy
Median pay: $46,600 
People who said it's a highly meaningful job: 98% 
People who said it's a highly satisfying job: 90%


Yeah.  Obviously no one in my diocese, under the omophor of my bishop was interviewed.

Nor was my bishop emeritus interviewed.


Nor was my current bishop and his auxiliary.


Nor +Sal West...


And especially not +Sal East!


Don't even think of interviewing +Kimbie Wanna-Try-A-Little Sample... 

In fact I can't think of one American bishop I have met, but I digress...

This poll was obviously conducted Tuesday through Thursday between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM (stopping for lunch between 11:00 and 1:00) when clergy are available to answer the phone.

In other church news lewd happenings, New York City Traditional Latin Mass organist at the famed Saint Agnes Church, plans on marrying his same sex partner, while still handling all the testicles versicles and responses in Tridentine Latin.


Always ready to jump on attack Cardinal Dolan we can only guess that Michael Voris and his Merkin have set up camp (so to speak) in the Big Apple awaiting His Eminence's response, which we can only guess will be....

Now you might be asking yourself, as I often never do, "How can I as a Katholik Blogger komitted to defending the faith, stand as a witness to the one true truthful Truth and fight against these horrific homo heresies?"  Well thankfully one Brighton U.K. based bloke has the answer. 

Yes, in between crushing his bone that thrills, attending the Novena of Pontifical Latin Masses at the Toadstool, running errands for his mum, daily spontaneous ejaculations (aimed to penetrate pierce the heavens), and the ever important blogging empire from mum's basement, this young chap has found time to serve as founder and chairman of the Guild of Saint Tits-Up Brandingiron, Mystical Moonshiner of Brokeback Mountain, providing a special place for all the special bloggers to come together link up to one another.

If anyone knows where Father D can get an application for the Guild, please let me know.  Also, if there is a membership fee, will they let me pay with me mum's credit card? Probably not a problem huh?

Let's get Chris and Shane's Traditional Cantor to sing us on outta here .... A tribute to POPULAR JOB #1 = CLERGY!

  1. I know a gay couple who attend Latin Mass at a famous traddie parish in Chi-town and the five conservative Proddie Quiverfull converts who also attend the Mass (complete with women in frumpers) are clueless about their orientation. Yes, Mike-y Merkin the only people attracted to the Latin Mass are the gayz (both clerical and straight) who find the Mass fabulous and obnoxious Proddie converts who use the fact that they drive two hours to Church and attend Mass in a language they don't understand to pretend they are less stupid than their neighbors in Hickville. The gheys are fabulous and we need more of them while the Proddie fanatics should try forming their own white trash church.

  2. Zzzzz is posting a public service announcement about a computer virus he has on his computer. I guess everyone should be careful of those gay porn sites. Karma can be a bitch.

  3. At $46K per year, you're nuts especially when you have to do real work for it. His Crassness the Grasper and Indolent Extraordinary gets tax free money, say $65K, for bad Latin and even more atrocious second hand Canonical advice,
    Throw in the End of Days Preppy armoury on the wishlist, the junkets to Europe three or four times a year to say nothing of the internal 'My View for a While' freebies all funded by the cohort of attendant at the pedestal, Brown Nosers.

  4. It seems that the most vehement anti-gay remarks come from those who are all conveniently "celibate" like Michael Voris, (who could not possibly have foregone traditional marriage to save the church from a nonexistent enemy because *he* is himself gay).

    Good for the organist. As St. John XXIII prayed at the opening of the council, it's time to discern the signs of the times and look far ahead to the future.

    Michael Voris and his ilk, it is my unprovable opinion, all struggle with some internal problem that doesn't jive with official church teaching and documents, and therefore are insecure and hate themselves. Rather than accept who they are, clear the rest of field with following the church as best they can, and relying on the mercy and magnanimity of God, they instead obsess over the aspects of their humanity that don't conform perfectly to church teaching. As a result, they construct these vicious and cold systems that ignore people and only reinforce principles as they appear at face value.

    In the early church, the Spirit spoke directly through the people, and the church listened. How many saints, including bishops and popes were made such by acclamation? There used to be groundswell movements and occurrences in the first centuries before the structure became too big to smoothly accommodate them. Could it be, perhaps, that if the church has become too self-referential, rigid, and brittle to discern more revolutionary movements of the Spirit, that Gos is choosing to directly go to the ordinary people? In their usual faltering, bumbling, "two steps forward and one step back" fashion, I wonder if the gay rights movement isn't inspired by God. Of course there are bad side effects, but nothing this side of the grave is totally black or white; it's all shades of gray.

  5. You can always count on Janet for "true happiness." I know what made the Emeritus, Emeritus of the diocese (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoDdlyFF0CE featuring the Emeritus, Emeritus herself). It was a lovely CONFIRMATION when he would sit in the back (slightly soiled) seat of the black Chevy busily writing his cell number on the back of business cards to pass out only to those who he "felt an electrical moment with," in other words, the comely male candidates.

    Imagine your happiness when you show your parents how you now had the bishop's private number (believe you me...A LOT OF PEOPLE had his number).

    It's a pity that he predated computers, as they would not be referring to him as the Emeritus, Emeritus, but by Federal prisoner #..........

    The unpacking complete, the pink sweaters put away, I had the sign changed as everyone already knows WHO is in town!

    1. From what I can tell, there are 7 -- count them 7 -- bishops floating around Providence! Not to mention one listed "in residence." But Janet, you are always so cryptic -- WHO is in town? His Residence perhaps?

    2. Those knuckle surgeries have really helped her fingers slide so easily over the keys. Loiuse's fondness for organs is well known in these parts. Every make and model, even the older African ones. While his successor seemed to prefer only Portuguese organs from New Hampshire. What about the incumbent?

    3. WHO is in town?.......Why it's me pumpkin!!! If you can't put out a sign welcoming yourself...who can?

      Thanks to all those who called me....since many HAVE MY NUMBER!!!!

  6. Bishop Knisley seems to be a breath of fresh air in the Diocese of Rhode Island. I hope he doesn't become a disappointment.

    1. Puuuuuulllleeese... Louise! The Emeritus, Emeritus has some history with their Emeritus, Emeritus as well. It seems that he got "mis informed" about Bishop Hunt (rhymes with....you know) and allowed the Episcopalians to USE THE CATHEDRAL for the ceremony.....believe you me....George Hunt was a snake belly low Protestant of the Assembly of God order (paging Roman Manchester)....snakes and all. That decision was regretted as a few of the brethren "attempted" marriage and swam the Tiber. Uglier than Roman Manchester in a size 28 Lane Bryant single piece BLACK (thank God for the slimming effect) bathing suite.

    2. Knisley? I thought we were talking about real bishops running around lil' Rhodie.

    3. I can't see a graduate of Sewanee as "snake belly low." Don't know the guy from Adam, but I've known graduates of Sewanee.

    4. "Bishop Knisley seems to be a breath of fresh air"....yes, he is a pleasant fellow, facing an unbelievable job. After Gerry was done, it was tantamount to being elected mayor of Nagasaki after the bomb.....you're the mayor, but of what?

  7. Although I wasn't sure if +George believed in God I never thought of him as snake belly low. He did complain to me about our continued use of the American Canon, but I told him that it was more elegant than the modern trash. ( An Anglican dealer on eBay refers to them as reprobate rites.) He responded to that with a strong yuck.

    He did read the prayer beautifully, and I told him so.

  8. Roman Manchester.... Lane Bryant size 28 Black...

    Wow... What a vision. I knocked my fucking coffee all over my keyboard, couldn't contain a rogue shaft and slightly wet my pants.

    Your posts should be accompanied with warnings.
