Sorry, No Kool-Aid For Me
And I won't go swimming in the Weurl-Pool, either

In what the Catholic World News calls "a bold pastoral initiative", I not only find to be personally find offensive, but what's even worse... a slap in the face of Holy Mother The Church.

I'm sure most of you remember that Washington, DC's Archbishop Weurl recently did his best Sergeant Schultz imitation with his "I see nothing..... NOOOOOOTHING!" episode where he looked the other way when a certain hard core pro-abortion/embryonic stem-cell research/same-sex marriage San Francisco politician received Holy Communion within his Archdiocese.

And taking a page from the "Betrayal For Dummies" book by Judas Iscariot, this very same archbishop failed to display even a little bit of courage when Granny Pelosi referred to herself as a "Conservative Catholic". I guess it's asking too much for the Archbishop of Washington, DC to tell the Speaker of the House that "Conservative Catholics" don't have a 100% approval rating from Planned Parenthood. Silly me.

But anyhow... this archbishop now is trying re-invent himself as some sort of trail blazer visionary by stating that Catholics should receive the Sacrament of Confession more often. Gee.... no kidding?

This guy's got the backbone of a chocolate eclair. If he would back up his "bold pastoral initiatives" with even a smidgen of substance, then I'd take him serious.

Remember, fellow bloglodytes... just because a cheating husband gives his wife a peck of a kiss on the cheek every now and then, that doesn't mean he loves her.

Vir, you are being unnecessarily insulting...

...I have encountered many chocolate eclairs in my life, and they have all displayed the requisite amount of firm substance (attested by the calorie content which rapidly metamorphosed into very substantial matter!)

If only Archbisop Ireland of St. Paul, MN Archdiocese could see this now. And we're around to do something about it.

so, come on, Vir... 'fess up... what have you got against chocolate eclairs that you should liken them to a bishop who is failing to shepherd his flock?

I say END ALL ANTI-ECLAIR DISCRIMINATION NOW!!

No, no, it's very simple. Nancy Pelosi is fine. Fr. Robert Drinan was fine. It's you and me who need to go to confession more often!

Gee, and I just went last week, too.
