Father Speekman Nails It, Yet Again
Thunder from Down Under

If you haven't yet, swing over to Fr. Speekman's Homilies From Australia. He honestly does write some of the funniest stuff in the Catholic Blogosphere. Here's his latest;

The Gospel of Nice...

Jesus shared with his disciples,

"I am the Nice Shepherd.

I never say no to my sheep. They love me and I love them and I do anything they want. When the wolf comes I smile and say hello and welcome him into the flock because my flock is inclusive and welcoming.

Other shepherds are not nice. They are divisive and bullying. They have rules for the sheep. They do not accept the wolf and do not let the sheep play with him.

I am the Nice Shepherd. I lay down for my sheep. They love me lots and call me by my first name. We love ourselves and we form community. We do not like those other sheep who will not play with the wolf. We do not have them in our flock. We call them names and show them they are unwelcome because they are not welcoming like us."

Excellent post, and a crying shame how many tell us this is what Jesus Christ is like.

Isn't it cool how the multicultural mandarins of the EU and United States of CanMexAmerica won't even acknowledge the existence of the Nice Shepherd? He would never, ever start a Church with those nasty, intolerant doctrines, now would he? Why, next thing you know, something like TRUTH might be expected to be believed.

Cheers
