I've been reading about last night's debate, and the
Thank God I'm not running for president! The list of Terrible Wrongs Which Embolden the Terrorists of which I am guilty are numerous:
I don't wear a flag-pin on my lapel.
A dear member of my extended family is a former member of the Weather Underground.
I have denounced the war in Iraq from the pulpit.
I have been known to denounce the actions of the governments of Panamá, Colombia, the U.S.A., the People's Republic of China, Great Britain, Israel, Egypt, and Chile publicly.
I think that the Reverend Wright makes sense.
I hate apple pie.
I'm rude to my mother.
I still own a copy of The Thoughts of Chairman Mao.
I tried to get Matty Boy to join the International Communist Conspiracy.
Before I became a priest I encouraged others to read pornography by the light of burning American flags.
Okay, the last two aren't true, I was just going for a funny post. But really, what the heck is going on in the U.S.A.? Ya'll needs ta smack dem "reporters" and "pundits" around a bit. Come to think of it, most of this will also prevent me from ever being elected bishop anywhere, Gracias a Dios!
In other news, I checked Canon Harmon's blog to see what the erudite commentators there had to say about the debate, but it appears that the Bishop of Rome is in the U.S. and five out of six posts there are about said Bishop's visit, and the comments are along the lines of What A Great And Holy Man Bishop Of Rome Is, Especially When Compared To That Awful Woman, so I wouldn't advise any visits to THAT place.
Thanks! My rant is done and I feel much better! We now return you to our regular programming, already in progress.
