No official representative from the U.S.?

No mention of U.S. representative in above.

John Kerry who is a (divorced) Catholic?

Bill Clinton? Jimmy Carter?

I know (divorced) Newt was there as a journalist.

Again from the “Daily Mail”. I highlighted the GOLD Pallium Pins. Click to access original pictures and coverage.


Ratziner was always vain. It was one of my pet peeves about his papacy. I bitched about it often to the chagrin of many on my ‘popes and papacy’ blog.

Well the new pope appears to agree with me. He, from day one, went for the simpler, less expensive vestments — and refused to drip gold other than for those damned GOLD, jewel encrusted Pallium Pins he inherited from the German. I have bitched about these pins for years! They are supposed to represent the rusted nails used to Crucify Jesus!

A long stretch, even for the Catholic Church, from rusted nails to jewel-encrusted gold pins — each worth in excess of U.S. $10,000!

Ditch the pins Francis!

It is unbecoming of your message of humility and awareness of the poor.

I have always said, SELL these 5 pins …
and give the money to the poor.
PLEASE.

Well, obviously, Ratzinger did not get the e-mail from Francis about simpler lifestyles. Pity.

Do YOU think Jesus would go for the fancy, very expensive watered-silk vestments and GOLD pins?

MalyaPMgives you thefinger

Malay Prime Minister giving us the finger as he is wont to do. Well we all know what he can do with that.


Yes, I saw the news of the South Korean P. M. late last night.

I was kind of impressed BUT this is hardly any consolation for all
those poor kids that died. 50 young girls, obviously scared witless,
crammed into a single cabin hoping for rescue.

Resignation is TOO EASY for these clowns.

Yes, the Assistant  Principal who took matters into his own hand.
Well that was a start!

I think Russia, China and Japan
in the old days knew how to deal with folks like that.

Well, I didn’t even BOTHER to draw any parallels with the
CRIMINALS handling the Malaysian Air MH370 fiasco.

Never mind that they are innately corrupt
THEY won’t RESIGN for two very simple reasons.

They are too stupid to even think about something like that,
but more importantly they have no concept
of HONOR.

Honor is a strange thing.
Some cultures have it inculcated into their heritage.

Not so with Malays.

Resign?

Pigs will fly first.

As for the idiot, clueless,
Malaysian Airlines CEO, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya.

I got this e-mail from the U.K., from a reader (who I do not know),
which basically shamed me into saying something about this.

Now I have, and I have to say I feel much better.

A couple of weeks ago I needed some flowers delivered to a patient at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in Lebanon.

I had no idea as to who could do this. So I just called up the DHMC switchboard and asked them. They must get quite a few of these calls since they gave me the answer right away.

They told me that they no longer had a florist ‘in house‘, but the florist that was there was the ‘Garden of Eden‘, in Lebanon, and that I should call them. They gave me their phone number, viz. 603-448-6000.

I checked them out on the Web. Seemed reasonable and decent. I called. Very helpful. Very nice. I placed an order.

It was delivered that afternoon. I gather it was a very impressive and pleasing arrangement. So I was glad. Money well spent.

So a call out for them.

If you need flowers sent to DHMC or Dartmouth College or thereabouts … call them.


Vatican Walks Back Pope Francis’ Latest ‘Off The Cuff’, Imprudent Remarks About Divorced Catholics And Communion.

‘Vatican Information Service’ wasted NO TIME in walking back the pope’s statement. This is kind of unprecedented. Basically the Holy See Press Office is putting the pope back in his place! Click to access original at VIS.

Why the pope keeps on doing this is puzzling. He, as the Vatican quite rightly points out in their statement, is just causing confusion and bewilderment. See link referenced above.

Of course he has the power to change this ruling. He is ALL powerful in all matters other than clerical sex crimes. In that, all popes, by definition are impotent — as they have all clearly proved.

Divorced people getting communion is a very thorny and emotive issue.

I know of two, rather prominent Catholic males, both divorced, one more than once, that insists on getting communion though they know they shouldn’t! The one that is divorced multiple times is, moreover, a HIGH RANKING ‘Knights of Columbus‘ official! He shouldn’t b. Per the rules of KFC he shouldn’t even be a member — because he is not a Catholic of ‘high standing’.

That Catholics feel a need to get communion when they know that that, per the Church, is a SIN is baffling to me. You are committing a sin, that you can easily avoid, to atone your soul.

As I have always maintained, it is very confusing and baffling to be a Catholic — even a Catholic male.

This pope is not helping matters.
