SO, WHAT ARE THE NUTS DOING IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD?

As most of you know, Fr D does not moderate comments, nor does he require ID verification. Sometimes it's a problem, but usually things remain pretty sane around here. (Considering Father D's own mental state, that's no small thing!)

Once a post becomes a few weeks old, Blogger requires that I moderate comments on those older posts. Ninety nine percent of the time when I read the email, I approve them all.

Free speech. It's a thing.

Today the previous post became that certain age when comments require attention. So, lazy me figures its time for another post.

I did delete one comment and immediately regretted it, because it linked to this  Fine Traditionalist Catholic Blog with its "F#ck Francis Friday" post.  I am always amazed at the spirits that are at work among the Traddies and Krazy Koverts.  Lampooning and Parody I can accept as a form of criticism and protest, but bile filled hatred has no place in Christian life. Some liberals spew such contempt as well.  It's always good to shine some light on that kind of darkness.

What's your Nutty News lately?


On a more positive note, did you see the statement by Bishop Robert Nugent (yeah that's his middle name) Lynch of Saint Petersburg FL? The same newspaper posted an editorial a couple days later. Too bad Bishop Lynch is of retirement age.

  1. Check out the latest indiscriminate bombing by the Zeppelin.
    Zzz can't be bothered to verify whether or not the people in a photo we're supposed to hate are actually the people we're supposed to hate.
    Lazzzzzzy! Or desperate for revenue-generating content. He must be broke after wining and dining that prancing matador.

    1. LOL...the people in the swimming pool. One of the commentators was upset that they were all in swim suits, even if they are Episcopalians. Something like all the male attendees should be in dress shirts and slacks, and all the ladies in proper dresses, blouses and long skirts.

    2. Looks like the Madison non-Italian Latin Mass Society, because the girl musicians are not allowed in the pool; also note the optical illusion that they are on the wrong side of the fence (no doubt done on purpose by the photographer from Marquette).

  2. Holy Adolescent Fantasy Life, Batman!
    The Zeppelin is eight miles high in his latest on a commentary by Philanus! He's tripping fishballs and fantasizing about being the mysterious Pope Pius the Baker's Dozen!
    Pius sounds positively high camp, silently gliding down the stairs and through the corridors of The Vatican City State without even the sound of ruffled silk or footfalls to herald his ghostly movements.
    To his credit, Pius the Baker's Dozen gives up airplane travel. Truly a Road to Damask conversion for the Zeppelin.
    Just one question about His Hungryness: What does this pope do all day? Whoa! Father D's blog is prophetic! Confirmed for Zildo papacy!

  5. Well Fr D, in my neck of the woods, the Pro-Life community has flirted one step closer with Radical Traditonalists and violating the First Commandment, by kicking out one of their pro-life heroes, Jean Vanier, who heads the L'Arche communities.

    Because a biased news outlet here, CBC, interviewed him (https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/jean-vanier-supports-legalizing-assisted-suicide-in-cbc-interview) and he didn't give outright negatory statements against the new euthanasia law for Canada (a bill when the interview was done) he was lambasted by of all people, a Professor from one of the few orthodox post-secondary schools in Canada, OLWSA, from Barry's Bay, Ontario. His scathing criticism was picked up by ever crazing pro-life news blog, LifeSite News.

    Sad really, the pro-life leadership and even certain leaders of orthodoxy, are becoming ever more polarized and anti-Francis/Church, all in the name of whatever moral/liturgical cause they champion. In the case of LSN, it is the unborn babies, old people and special needs people. They are being idol worshipped to the point Christ is being removed from their centers.

  6. Speaking of the Pro-Life brigade, note that the Kevlar coated Lacy Boy is appealing to his follower to take up weapons training. He gets a cut of the Amazon arms sales and he is further the rationalization of his disordered gun fetish is validated:

    Take firearms training for the sake of your safety and for your loved ones
    Posted on 19 June 2016 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
    The AR-15 and its variants are much in the news again these days, as some call for their sales and ownership to be banned and some seek to defend them. ………
    Quite a few of you readers out there are against the ownership of weapons like the AR-15 (and quite a few in that group haven’t the slightest idea what an AR-15 is). Therefore, if I could make a suggestion, look online or ask around about classes where you live for instruction in the use of a handgun and/or long gun like the AR-15. …..
    My point is this: even if you don’t want to have handgun or a rifle, even if you think no one should, get the instruction anyway!

    It’s a sporty world out there, my friends, and it’s coming your way. ('sporty' is Lacy Boy's euphemism for shooting people.)

    Let me be clear: Before some of you go ballistic – and some of you will go ballistic and make all sorts of stupid assumptions about my motives and you’ll write dopey emails or letters full of accusations – what I am pushing here first and foremost is the training! The TRAINING. Got it? Must I say it again? Even if you don’t want any gun ever… take the training anyway."

    1. Even mass murder cannot dispel the fantasies of narcissistic hobbyists.
      They never miss a chance to give a smug non sequitur on the taxonomy of firearms.
      The Belt-Fed Gourmand is WAY too into guns. In fact, his entire blog, ahem, 'ministry', is full of adolescent garbage: strained attempts at mimicking sophistication, guys-only 'fun', toys, obsession with rank and regalia, etc., etc.
      When does this end? How does this end? Will he be doing this for, say, ten more years?

    "OK, Father, you may (or may not) publish my previous post but..."

    (Maybe Adolph von Lacy Duds had too many late night shots of the old Schnapps and it began to show):

    No thank you. While some may see it as a matter of prudence to arm themselves and counsel others to, I am with with those who see it a matter of prudence not to, and it’s worth saying that “take firearms training” is not a matter of Christian precept or principle. Knowing about guns is not a need to know sort of thing. I neither know nor care what an “AR-15” is. I only wish I knew so little about other things that I now think it best to avoid undue interest in, such as sexual things.

    In heaven the saints who used weapons and the saints who eschewed them are friends.

    I shot my dad’s rifle a couple times at a shooting range at a camp when I was a child, that is enough training for me. Count me out of any kind of militia.

    1. "D"'s posts shows she is beginning to experience the life on the "reservation," a challenge to common sense. It reminds her of an asshole who used to work a goody two shoes scam in high school.

  9. Maybe this, now somewhat vexatious, follower has the wood on Lacy Boy:

    "No frank commentary from Pope Zuhlsdorf, eh? Nor even translations from Latin?!

    At least Francis is still himself!"

    Elizabeth D,

    Of a discipline which “includes only reading this blog on Saturdays” – that’s a lot of reading to catch up with in one go, every Sancta Sabbata.

    Since you didn’t mention your actions in the first minute, might I suggest declaring Z to be a Roman numeral, thus your pontifical name, Pius Z?

    [If John Paul II could declare J to be a letter of the Roman alphabet, I don’t see why We could not do something similar.]

  13. Is it just me, or if you look back over the years at Z's blog, do you get the sense that he's gone absolutely insane? Years ago there were no posts about guns, ammo, firearms training, the impending end of the world...

    1. Not just you. I also wonder if he seriously believes he will be elected pope. He has started talking about it more. Maybe too much Delta lounge food has addled his brain.

    2. Nah, he is just totally pissed we kept bringing up faculties and incardination. It's what non-vocations do in seminary or religious formation do at times--revert to adolescent push back.

    3. I think he's got decidedly worse. In particular, the unhinged gun-nuttery has only set in over the last couple of years or so.

      I originally started reading him years ago on the basis of his reputation for writing legitimate priestly stuff about prayers, liturgy, etc. The first whiff of nuttery was when Notre Dame gave the honorary degree to Obama.

    4. And yet another piece of smoke and mirrors by the tortured Invert himself:

      "It is hard for me to imagine what it is like to suffer from same-sex attraction. I know, however, from common sense and from a quarter century of hearing confessions that it is a terrible burden for those with that affliction. So I’ll simply cut to the chase with the most compassionate response I can think of:

      COURAGE!"

    "I had a good week last week at Acton University, catching up with friends, hearing great presentations, being challenged to stretch and give my own talk, reading Mass in the traditional form, hearing some outstanding confessions, hanging out with really smart, highly motivated people from all over the world from different faiths and backgrounds. Afterward, I’ve spent a few days with priest friends at a great parish with some super people. Time to head home, after exploring the new Japanese garden here"
