papal-devilFreudian slips. Ain’t they hilarious?

You know, when you try to say one thing, but that hidden nugget of wisdom you are clinching in your booty cheeks so hard you are making a diamond just forces itself out of your mouth?!

Oh… those Freudian slips.

Yeah, well they happen all the time – and typically, never at the right time.

Well, evidently the editors of amNewYork posted this picture, and wouldn’t you know it? Some optical illusion took place and instantly Pope B16 here is the avenging angel of Satan.

Look at the priest’s collar… then aim down at Il Papa’s head… see the horns? OH! There it is. Just sitting there like the proverbial snake ready to sting your tail into an emergency ward.

Ouch.

I am going to take a mild stab at this: would the last name of the editor end with a “berg”, “witz” or “stein”? I’m just saying, while I am laughing out loud.

Look! Up in the sky. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… it’s… ah, who knows?!

And that’s largely the problem in Austin, Texas, as seen in this CNN story. On a quiet day, folk going out for a jog and this fireball appears and comes crashing to earth. No, it wasn’t Superman, so what was it?!

Sonic booms and at least one fireball in the sky were reported in Texas on Sunday, less than a week after two satellites collided in space and a day after the Federal Aviation Administration asked U.S. pilots to watch for “falling space debris,” authorities said.

Check the video:

To this day, no debris has been found and no explanations have been made.

I’m not saying E.T. got tired of phoning home and came back looking for El-e-ot. But it did get me thinking about another incident that will be reported someday when the clouds part and the trump sounds.

How will the news react to the rapture? What coverage will take place? And who are the poor reporters who will be left to cover it?

Jesus is coming back. The rapture is real. And the questions will abound when reality slaps them in the face and the sound of Wynton Marsalis blows out their eardrums. Church, we still have work to do.

As a Zionist, a child of God and – oh, I don’t know – someone with a pulse, I have been fuming on this one for a while. Buckle up, Wall Watchers. Here’s the lede, thanks to HuffPo.

Pope Benedict XVI has lifted the excommunications of four traditionalist bishops, including that of a Holocaust denier whose rehabilitation sparked outrage among Jewish groups.

Um, I’m sorry?! These four tools… er, bishops are well known in Catholic and seminarian circles as the “Lefebvrite Bishopric.”

Basically, this title is Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre – a legalist, an orthodox, a traditionalist and founder of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). All of that essentially means dude wasn’t a fan of Vatican II, and if you remember all the stories of the “Passion of the Christ,” that makes he and Mel Gibson’s dad BFFs.

Back to the story: So Lefebvre had some clout back in the 60s and sent these four bishops packing, largely because of the mouth on this big mouth bass. All, meet Bishop Richard Williamson.

This is a tool who believes historical evidence is hugely against 6 million Jews having been deliberately gassed. Yeah, I would find something a bit more intimidating than those Birkenstocks folk wear around the Vatican and stick my size 12s directly in his blessed assurance. Anyone feel me?

A picture is worth 1000 words. So why am I still speechless?

In review, let me get this right:

  • We have a German kid who hung out in the Hitler youth rally for kicks
  • He grew up loving Jesus and all, and ultimately joined a monastery
  • He’s now Pope and knows there is this whole schism that exists between the Papacy and these highfalutent Bishops back in half-baked 60s
  • And then, he lifts the excommunication of a complete waste of clerics who denied the holocaust
  • Which is something Germans back in the 40s were rumored to not have been big fans

Don’t you love it when life deduces logic for you? So, where’s the spin control from the Vatican to make it look like this was just a president issuing harmless pardons:

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Williamson’s views were “absolutely indefensible.” But he denied that rehabilitating Williamson implied that the Vatican shared them… They are his personal ideas … that we certainly don’t share but they have nothing to do with the issue of the excommunication and the removal of the excommunication,” Lombardi told AP Television News.

Sure they don’t. The holocaust was real. His erroneous statements about it were real. Priests have been shunned from the friendly Papal confines for less. I understand God forgives, but his people just don’t forget. Funny how it seems the Pope did.
