And they have bare feet--what's up with that!?

Owen said...

Your title killed me. I think the bare feet are the best part. Is that person off stage to our right holding his or her nose, praying or crying?

Adrienne said...

WTH is that thing on the altar? Dear Lord, tell me it's not the chalice. Please!!!

Tara - the bare feet make me want to retch

the thing on the altar has smoke coming out of it so maybe it's the witches cauldron.

It's not a wine spitoon, is it? For God's sake, I hope not!

I wish I was in the audience with a slingshot.

I think the thing on the altar is suppose to be a stationary thurible. That is if this is supposed to be a church dedication.

Did you see the age of the priests behind the altar? When the Holy Father was asked "When will the madness end?", his answer was: "we'll have to wait 'till they die". Tolerance has never been a virtue but patience still is! It is changing fast.

Paul: I wish I was in the audience with a bazooka!

Honestly, what disturbs me the most is the fact that there are die-hard liturgical dancers out there that still didn't recognize how much their time has come (and how much therapy they need)...

Liturgical dance....because we failed ballerina school.

The bad part? Two Bishops who didn't look at the dissidents and say: We won't do this until the priests are vested propery, and the dancers are gone, and the choir realizes it's not putting on a show.

Two bishops, zero balls.

If I ever am unlucky enough to see that at any local church I'm at least going to have the decency to give the priest a chasuble that says "no fat chicks."

Well, one must cut them a little bit of slack. This is from the Diocese of Springfield MA. The previous bishop resigned under accusations of molesting altar boys. The current bishop (seated behind the altar) was attending an intensive Spanish Language immersion seminar, thinking he was going to be the next bishop of Worcester. Suddenly his seminar was cut short and was sent to Springfield. Guess which day he was installed as bishop? APRIL FIRST!

Even more comical is the fact that all the clergy con-celebrating and assisting were tastefully vested in their finest coronation tapestry vestments. The retired Bishop Emeritus +Joe MacGuire, shows up in his circa 1978 burlap stole, hand made by a Sister of Saint Joseph...

I'm sorry. I'll take an insular ethnic Greek ghetto over this any day of the week.

Check out this new Christian band that just released their first album. From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.

Introducing the new Christian National Anthem: Guns & Jesus.

Tell All!!!
