To Be Honest, I'm Shocked He Hasn't Been Named As Mahony's Replacement
This being "The Springtime for the Church", and all

Sorry, Ladies.

From The Herald-Sun (Australia); Tom Cruise to be godfather to Jennifer Lopez's twins
Jennifer Lopez wants Tom Cruise to be godfather to her newborn twins, and has persuaded her husband Marc Anthony to give Cruise the role despite his Scientology beliefs.

The Latino star gave birth to son Max and daughter Emme on February 22. A source said: “Tom is delighted. Marc wasn’t sure if it was a good idea to have a Scientologist as the kids’ godfather, especially as he and Jennifer are both Catholic. But in the end Lopez managed to convince him to agree.”

Cruise, who is an active follower of bizarre sci-fi cult Scientology, has already showered the newborn twins with gifts. He splashed out $200,000 on designer christening outfits for Max and Emme, ordered a giant fish tank for their nursery and gave them complete Disney DVD box sets.

It has also been claimed Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes planned to host a star-studded $200,000 "Welcome to the World" themed-party for the fraternal twins. Max and Emme have been treated to a host of gifts since they were born.

Lopez, 38, is said to have purchased two Shetland ponies for Max and Emme, along with diamond-encrusted rattles, 600 thread count Egyptian cotton for the baby's cots and designer babygros for the nursery wing in her Los Angeles home.
But in all fairness, in the VAST majority of Novus Ordo baptisms I've been to, they had very little to do with God. It's more of a "Coming Out Party" with all the church trappings.

Come to think of it... at Novus Ordo baptisms, is the washing away of Original Sin even mentioned?

Saw that yesterday. Nauseating. Batshit crazy just about sums it up. (But I'd rather deal with bats and their shit than lay eyes on any of those people..)

No it's not. At least not the one's I've seen. The real one (that is, the preVat2 one which is almost identical to the one us Odox use as seen in The Godfather) does.

Kudos to Marc Anthony though for having his spider senses tingle about that nutcase closet satanist. He unfortunately isn't going to find any moral support from J Ho or any Hollyweird folks.

Being a Trad/Orthodox Christian amongst liberals feels like King Leonidas fighting thousands of Persians.

Oh dear Lord... I thought everyone knew that the main requirement for a godparent was being Catholic. At the very least, a belief in GOD seems pretty obvious in the "desired characteristics" ticklist...

On a slightly more cheerful note, thank you for your vote... and I have already voted for you in the other categories... and told my readers to do the same... (HINT !)

Yes, same here, I thought that one had to be a practicing Catholic in order to be a godparent.

Pray that Tom comes home to the Church.

Kudos to Marc Anthony for wanting someone other than Tom Cruise to be the Godfather, shame on J-Ho for allowing this.

It's weird how Tom Cruise is so attracted to Catholics. He marries two Catholic women and tries to change them. Now he's moving in on the Marc Anthony and his family. Creepy.
