Who Could Get Mad At This Guy?
He's such a nice Catholic boy
Helmet tip to my buddy Mac at Mulier Fortis

Good ol' Father Finigan over at The Hermeneutic of Continuity has the Roman Protestants over at ICEL (International Commission on English in the Liturgy) trying to strong arm him and giving a none too veiled threat of legal action against him (at least that's how I see it).

Swing on over to Father Finigan's site and see what's up. Fairly disgusting and arrogant attitude from the ICEL/PC Gestapo. Not exactly a big shocker, huh?

By the way... yes, I called them Roman Protestants. Why? Simple. As if the Mass of Paul VI wasn't Protestant inspired enough, these mooks want to dumb it down to such an even greater degree. If they have it their way, the Catholic Mass will be indistinguishable from a Baptist Tent Revival.

Well, golly gee... I can't figure out what "mankind" means! Quick, someone send for the ICEL!

By the way, before anyone flips out on me for referring to the Mass of Paul VI as "Protestant inspired"... please take a gander at this and this.

"the Catholic Mass will be indistinguishable from a Baptist Tent Revival."

I attended a Mass a nearby suburb a few years ago. Bully pulpit? Not at this church, not even a pulpit (or at least the priest didn' tuse it). The priest came out of the sanctuary with a cordless, handheld microphone and walked back and forth across the front of the church and part way up the center aisle as he delivered his feel-good "homily."

Priest as "presider?" Hardly. More like presider as lounge act cum comedian cum self-help guru. When it was over, the congregation thanked him for the quarter hour of entertainment with a round of applause! It was sickening.

Here's some more trivia about the ICEL and BCL...
We podcasters are denied permission to quote the NAB/Lectionary translation of Sacred Scripture for reasons that we might just "misinterpret" it. This includes lay podcasters AND priests (my pastor and boss is also a podcaster).

Hmmm...all things considered, we may need to invoke the documents of Vatican Two to speak against the Spirit of VII!

I guess when I quote from the lectionary I'll just use the Jerusalem Bible and look up the passages.

Those apostate sodomites are trying very hard to kill the church, just like their boss said he would.
