a church militant of one
like i mentioned last week, it gets sometimes that i don’t even know if i can accurately use the plural when i talk about real catholics.
now don’t get me wrong, i know that i’m not the only real catholic there is, because all the unsmiling members of the church triumphant and suffering are totes my peeps. i am saying, however, that when it comes to the church militant, i’ve come to believe i’m an army of one.
you know, like the military tv ad from a few years back.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTnwORzObu0]
i’d like to think that when i’m scaling figurative mountains and figuratively sniping literal enemies and literally drinking the sweat from my own socks, i’m actually just the advance man for an awesome real catholic special forces unit. this is why i trolled in the past, and it’s why i blog now. because i want followers, tens of thousands of followers.
the problem with this scenario, of course, is that a church militant of any real size requires obedience, which has never been something i’ve prized, not even from folks who would be following me.
also, it turns out that my preferred domain name, churchmilitant.tv, is already in use by the same toupee that wears Michael Voris.
though i had previously been quite high on Voris, i soured when i heard about his underground music video supporting rabbi David Goldberg, who is facing charges for violating germany’s new ban on circumcision. i’m not sure which is worse: that Voris seems to be abandoning his incipient anti-semitism, or that his video, a parody of Cyndi Lauper entitled “mohels just wanna have fun,” was clearly aimed at eliciting laughter. either way, color me disappointed.
i guess i’m stuck with no one but myself, a church militant of one.
oh right, and Murphy too.
yup, i am my own force.
