LIVE From The Big Dog House Itself, It's.....
MC Roger!


*APPLAUSE*

Thank you very much, ladies and germs. Welcome to Our Lady of Somethingerother Cathedral in beautiful downtown Los Angeles. Let me be the first to invite everyone to our 1st Annual “Downtown Dog Day Afternoon,” July 31, in the cathedral plaza. It's “a Community Event for Downtown Los Angeles Doggies of ALL Faiths AND their Humans! Bring your four legged friend to the Cathedral for the Downtown Dog Day Afternoon being held on the Cathedral Plaza.”

And here's a sneak peek of what we have in store! Put your paws together and meet my amazing talking Yorkie, Francis The Sissy! (I named him after my Vocations Director)

MC Roger: Francis, what's that on top of the cathedral?
Francis: Ruff!
MC Roger: That's right, Francis - a roof!

MC Roger: Francis, do you know the first name of the next person I want to ordain to the priesthood?
Francis: Ruff!
MC Roger: Right again! Ruth!

MC Roger: But tell me, Francis... what is it that I've been trying so hard to create in the Catholic Church?
Francis: Ruff!
MC Roger: Exactly right, Francis! A rift!

MC Roger: Lastly, tell me Francis, how do you think things with go for us under that big meany, Pope Benedict?
Francis: Ruff!
MC Roger: Rough indeed, Francis... rough indeed!

His Emanate Cardinal "I Shouldn't Have Had That Last Burrito" Mahony (right), AKA: MC Roger, gives a whole new meaning to "lean to the left". Pfffft! "Oh well, with all the dog crap on the cathedral floor, I'll bet no one'll even notice that I just busted ass. Quien Pedo?!"

Vir,
Clever and funny post about what is actually a sad state of affairs. For centuries, various Catholic churches have had a blessing of the animals on the Feast of St. Francis Assisi. Leave it up to Roger the Doctrine Dodger to turn the “cathedral” into a joke.

What I found even more interesting within the article from the link in your post, was the news that: the “Cathedral Arts Chapel” is hosting a contemporary art exhibition through Aug. 24, “The S-Word: The State of ‘Spirituality’ in contemporary Art.” The word “Spirituality” appears in quotes...because “religion itself is not spirituality, nor are the artifacts and symbols of religious practice.

Two exhibits appearing in “S-Word”...underline this. One, depicts a glass pitcher with grape juice and a stack of white bread sandwiches “on a small cut-away stage or altar by a body of water, visible only at the right edge of the image,” says the review. “It‘s a deftly updated commentary on the eucharist, the body and blood of Christ, and the rendering conveys a presence, even a reverence, that is surprising.” Another is “Kim Dingle’s highly original mixed-media construction, titled ‘My Struggles with Jesus,’” which displays “various dolls in disarray and in the process of unraveling.” This piece “constitutes a devastating moral query,” says the review. (I’ll bet!)

Note the lower case “e” in the word Eucharist and that the Body and Blood of Christ is depicted as white bread and grape juice. Yeah, Rog, that’s high art! Allowing a further weakening of the belief in the Real Presence. What’s the matter, you couldn’t get the display of the crucifix in a jar of urine or the picture of the Blessed Virgin covered in elephant excrement?
