More Craziness From The Land Of Fruits And Nuts
...or would that be "piers and queers"?

WARNING! Exceedingly crude references to homosexuality. If you are easily insulted by such, I suggest you pass on this posting.

I've read recently that when The Holy Father visits the Land of the Free later this Spring, that he may be coming down hard on American "Catholic" Universities. If that's the truth, I suggest he start by bulldozing over the Jesuit-run (big shocker, huh?) University of Than Franthithco. Then set fire to whatever combustible material may be left, then piss on the ashes. And of course, a heavy dousing of salt over the entire contaminated area juuuuuust to be sure.

What prompted this posting? Ohhh, just that latest in the litany of bull shit oozing forth from USF. Here's some of the latest from the California Catholic Daily; (Emphasis mine)

“Beyond the confines of the Roman church”
USF theology professor is ordained priest, but not a Catholic one

In a letter printed in the March 21 edition of Catholic San Francisco, Jesuit Father Stephen Privett took author George Weigel to task for saying in a column that Catholicism is “vestigial at best” on Catholic college campuses. In response, Privett said the University of San Francisco, of which he is president, “has a Catholic Studies program; a Catholic focused curriculum in the Theology and Religious Studies Department,” as well as other Catholic-inspired programs and activities.

USF may have all these things, but it also has Vincent Pizzuto, who, besides being assistant professor in the university’s Department of Theology and Religious Studies, is also an ordained priest in the Celtic Christian Church. Pizzuto also serves on the board of directors of the LGBTQ Caucus of the University of San Francisco, which says it was formed in the Fall of 2005 “as a way to promote social justice for LGBTQ people.”

According to the USF web site, “in addition to his teaching, Prof. Pizzuto lectures in local parishes on areas of prayer and spirituality with particular outreach to the gay and lesbian community.”

In a discussion, “Is it Ethical to be Catholic? – Queer Perspectives,” given at Most Holy Redeemer Church in San Francisco in 2006, Pizzuto said that ethical questions have “driven faithful Catholics beyond the confines of the Roman church where they might more faithfully live out their catholic faith elsewhere. And I count myself among them.”

Pizzuto was ordained a "Celtic Christian" priest in San Francisco in July 2006. He serves as “presider” over the New Skellig community in the Bay Area, which, says its web site, is a “catholic contemplative community of lay people” meeting “in small intimate settings in the homes of its members.”
As they say Down South (and I'll clean it up) - "that boy may not [engage in homosexual oral sex], but I guarantee he'd swish it around in his mouth four or five times."

Oh, and someone might want to remind the fudge packing-friendly crew over at USF that the Profession of Faith and The Oath Of Fidelity On Assuming An Office To Be Exercised In The Name Of The Church from 1998 specifically states; Canon 833, Nos. 5-8 obliges the following to make the profession of faith: "the rectors of an ecclesiastical or Catholic university at the beginning of the rector's term of office"; and, "at the beginning of their term of office, teachers in any universities whatsoever who teach disciplines which deal with faith or morals"...In other words, "Father" Sugar Britches needs to be shit canned. But then again, "shit can" is probably a queer euphemism for the poop chute for the male of the species. And the last thing any of us need is another Backdoor Conquistador on the campus of USF whipped up into a rectally recreational feeding frenzy.

Know what I mean, Vern?

The more conservative always think that a papal visit will cleanse all that they are sick of.
The mystery is that it won't. Benedict could alter these universities from Rome without a visit. Why he does not is a mystery itself. Is it good that our Popes now are mainly commentators and document writers and authors ......and not executives who give orders weekly for changes in reality itself? No it is not good. NCReporter had a 2005 poll that said acceptance of abortion is way higher in the youngest Catholics...89% see it as not being a bar to being a good Catholic. That's what papacy as authorship inexplicable divide between talk and reality. The Popes sells two million books which is 2% of Catholics and probably a 2% that don't need saving. Maybe we need a Pope who surprise visits the high schools incognito and who turns away from visiting the "important" level of personages and drives a Civic in plain clothes.

It's impossible to discuss recreational proctology without being crude and disgusting.

You're right. A single stroke of a pen could fix the problem. Be the signing take place in Rome of Washington, DC.

But you must admit... there's nothing like taking care of a problem where the problem exists.

But hey, I just want to see the problem FIXED!

My solution may not be so much liked: Dissolve USF :)
