a reader emailed me this disturbing piece from “fr.” z, in which he praises Congressman Nancy Pelosi’s announcement of the canonization of former Sen. Ted Kennedy.
first off, i had absolutely no idea that Pelosi was even a member of the dicastery for the causes of saints, but i suppose nothing about the depravity of the novus ordo shamchurch surprises me anymore.
seriously, if anyone had previously had any doubt about the validity of the vatican ii church, they surely have no excuses now. i mean, if we can’t go to sleep at night confident in the eternal damnation of Ted Kennedy, whose unending hellish torment can we derive peace and consolation from, anyway?
hmmph. if you ask me, hell was made for people just like Ted Kennedy. and Nancy Pelosi.
come to think of it, hell was made as the destination for pretty much everyone that has ever lived, is living, and ever will live. only the faithful few will escape its fire, after all, while for everyone else divine punishment is pretty much all their future holds.
as any real catholic knows, up to the time of the fake “catholic” vatican council the church’s most treasured belief and hope was in the damnation of all the perfidious. is it any wonder then that the heresy of so-called “divine mercy” emerged at the same time as modernism? as if the true god delights in granting pardon and forgiveness! as if he were a god of love instead of unquenchable wrath!!! (i’d laugh at the absurdity of it all if it wasn’t, you know, a hardcore mortal sin. real catholics don’t laugh.)
anyhoo, Murphy and i like to play a game we call “when i am king,” which basically entails declaring the game’s titular phrase and following it up with a statement of what you would do if you were in fact king (e.g., “when i am king, people who dislike ‘Battlestar Gallactica’ will be defenestrated, repeatedly.”)
today’s winning entry (from Murphy): “when i am king, there will be no divine mercy for anyone.”
yup, that about sums it up for me, too.
