Closing Pagan Ritual At HereticFest 2010
Dance to the music

What's up with that ectomorphic Jedi-in-Training dancing around the butcher block at the beginning of the video? And why is he luggin' around a bowl of white phosphorus? I wonder if he's sending up a marker flare for the Mother Ship.

At the risk of being redundant, Why in the place of eternal damnation doesn't the Pope DO SOMETHING about this?

Who told these people they were Catholic? Don't they know lying is a sin?

Those pots of incense are used in the religious practices of the Orient. I have seen Buddhist ceremonies using this in Vietnam. Also, Japan's Shinto religion uses these things.

So much for the priest incensing the altar and reciting that most beautiful of verses from Ps 140 (LXX & D-R)

Let my prayer ascend to Thee as incense; the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice.

What a sacrilege!

When "we" become the altar, the explanation is the loss of unity between "us" and God, through the Holy Eucharist.

This time I turned on the audio ... whoaaaa ... the announcer says the incence reminds us of the holiness of God. But this is not the function of the incence at all; according to Old Testament liturgy and instruction in the New Testament, the incence is the prayers of the faithful rising to the "nostrils" of God.

It seems incredible that they could switch the meaning of incence to something that makes no sense. How does incense mean the holiness of God? I have read much and have never seen any such thing at all.

Notice how the music is redundant, and keeps cycling ... it reflects how their faith has been stalled. it is boring. Why do they want to keep the faithful in the shallow water like little kids?

If this is a Lenten Mass, I wonder what LA wants to do for Easter? Bring out those Bunnies and a Giant Easter Egg--Why not? It's so goofy when the Mass is meant to be beautiful, solemn and centered on God, not on dancers and really terrible music.

Still waiting to see if they will have the courage to publish my comment about this on their YouTube page. Expect the 2nd coming 1st however since I didn't exactly praise what they were doing. I was about as charitable with them as Jesus was with the moneychangers in the Temple.

Oh, it was *incense*... I thought it was steaming buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Is it wrong for me to feel such a visceral revulsion to this?

And I didn't even have the sound on...

Funny. These people will be held up as "Catholic" while we "traditionalists" are considered freaks of nature.

Well, looking at it from another perspective, you could save a huge bundle of dollars by going there than flying to some foreign vacation city.
