Padre Rants

You know it's true!

I spent the day with the clergy of the Diocese of Panamá, and it didn't seem too terrible. I do love all of them, but six hours of a meeting en español tends to wear me out. Still, I'd much rather spend all my time with my colleague than with my insane countrymen (and I mean the men; wadda bunch of maroons!).

I got home, and, after folding yesterday's laundry and doing today's laundry, walking Señorita Chompita Wiggletail ( a short walk, as it started to rain), I finally went on-line to catch-up with the news.

GEEZ LOOUEEZE!!! Wadda buncha dips**ts!

The pres'nit has claimed that the U.S. would leave Iraq when the Iraquis wanted the U.S. to leave. However, there is no end to Bush’s continuous lies. Our Dear Friend and Brother in Iraq, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, was very clear today that he wants the U.S. to leave. The Bush fascist regime administration has rejected the request for a timetable.

And, of course, the Republicans spent the day kissing Jesse Helm’s dead white ass. The convictions of Jesse Helm's my foot! Actually, Jesse Helm's should have been convicted of the crimes of racism and homophobia! If there is a hell, Jesse Helms is the brightest object burning there at this moment!

And I gotta tell ya, the more I read about John McCain, Panamanian,, the more I wonder how stupid the Republican party can be. But, to tell you the truth, i don't have a lot of faith in the U.S. electorate, since you have betrayed me ever since I moved to Panama and allowed the Republicans to steal at least one election and let that wanker stay in office!!

I hope to God that the U.S. electorate has come to their collective senses! But I'm not holding my breath. And Obama, you better not vote in favour of that FISA bill; YOU KNOW BWTTER! You'd better stop kissing up to the right; they aren't going to EVER vote for you.

I sympathize with much of what you feel, Padre; but I feel an obligation to say, with all due respect, that some of this is over the line.

Point out when someone has been a racist, misogynist, homophobic jerk. Stand up to disagree with his words and actions, certainly. Speak to correct undeserved accolades that deify oppressive mean-spiritednes, by all means. "Speaking the truth in love" can and should do all of those things.

But however much we may think someone deserves it, we are not entitled to consign anyone to hell, and beyond the reach of God's merciful grace. That's the Boss' job alone; and if we try to step into that role, then we are just as guilty as those whose behavior we loathe.

Eddie Cochran?

Time to Rock Out!
Summertime Blues

I'm gonna raise a fuss, I'm gonna raise a holler
About a workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Every time I call my baby, and try to get a date
My boss says, "No dice son, you gotta work late"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Well my mom and pop told me, "Son you gotta make some money,
If you want to use the car to go ridin' next Sunday"
Well I didn't go to work, told the boss I was sick
"Well you can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

I'm gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
I'm gonna take my problem to the United Nations
Well I called my congressman and he said Quote:
"I'd like to help you son but you're too young to vote"
Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues
