Time to Get the .45 Millstones Ready
But a Well Aimed .22 Will Do

Michael Wempe’s trial started yesterday. You may have missed the news and I’m sure you won’t read about it in your diocesan newspaper. What? You never heard of Michael Wempe? Well, thank God you never heard of him 20 or 30 years ago, especially if you were a prepubescent boy, back when “Father Mike” was working his way through his flock of victims. The ex-priest escaped a dozen other charges due to the statute of limitations, but is facing 16 years in prison if convicted on the current offenses.

Down the hall in the same courthouse, Michael Baker, or yeah, another former “Father Mike,” was being arraigned on eight counts of molesting an 11-year-old boy. The cops arrested Baker at LAX after he got off a plane from Thailand, aka “pervert paradise.” Baker was one of the priests that Cardinal (gag) Mahoney admitted to shuffling around the diocese AFTER learning of his proclivities for child abuse. Mahoney has since apologized. I’m sure the victims felt a whole lot better after hearing that!

Marital love – as in sexual intercourse – is a Godly gift and a sacramental privilege. I have nothing but loathing and disgust for anyone who would steal the innocence of a child and likely ruin their full appreciation of the sex act for the rest of their lives.

In my view, a modern application of the Lord’s words, about throwing into the depths of the sea with a millstone tied around the neck of anyone who would mislead a child, is in order. I say give them a fair trial and if found guilty, they’re taken into a field and given one shot to the head. Sorry. You’d do the same thing to a rabid dog, right? Call me brutal, call me a Neanderthal, but child abuse is an incurable disease and caveman justice is in order. All the Megan’s Laws in the world will not protect children from these predators.

And while I’m on the subject, does the U.S. have an extradition treaty with the Vatican? There’s a cardinal (gag) over there who needs to be brought back here to face accessory-after-the-fact charges.

".45" was that the cal the pistols were in back when you were in the Corps or were they using the Berretta?

You're not a Neanderthal, you're a Blog-lodyte!

FD, sorry Bro... that wasn't my post. That was from the pen of Former Altar Boy.

But to answer you, when I first joined, it was the .45 and about 5 years leter, the transition began to that piece of crap pop-gun 9mm

If you want to off a pervert, at least wait until he's in a state of grace. Reconciliation, penance, Communion or Viaticum, *BANG*. Devil gets one less perv. Only then, oops, now you belong to the Devil...better yet to not suggest the deal to begin with.

St. Jimbob,
Good point, which I should have included. Indeed, summary execution after an opportunity to make a good confession. Let 'em burn off their sentence in purgatory.

My, my, my. I simply must protest. If scripture says "sea" and "millstone" then sea and millstone it should be.

Put the .45 away, rent a boat, find a millstone and some chain and have a go.

Scripture ALSO refers to fire.

Tomas deTorquemada's little bonfire crew is ready. Several full cords of seasoned wood in the truck/trailer, and a little kerosene to help it along.

Purification, you know.
