HOLY COW!Yeah, Mom, that's how you get kids to church (NOT!)
Good for hur! "It is NOT okay, Michael!" And pass me another beer:<)!
Oh, and for further "edification", watch RE: Pissed Catholic Mother...the gal who "knows it all"...yeah.:<)! (And if you want to be credible, don't bathe in holy water, 'kay?...gee, that's not even in our Rule; should consider that?!)
That makes me want to cry.
My favorite part is where she says, "That's it! We're going to start going to church every Sunday!"
I got it wrong, she says something like, "All right - we're going to start going to church every week now."
Eeeeeeee Gads! LOL. Terry, I think we share the same sick sense of humour. You want to find out what Christmas is all about???? LOL. I have to admit that prior to my heart's turning, I used to cuss like a sailor. Whew.Glad I gave that up!
Padre: ROFLM -OOPS-AO. You have a MARVELOUS sense of humour!!!!
Make that 2.
I love that mom!!!! Hell yeah! It's about Jesus Christ, that stupid little asshole.
And you're gonna love it heaven, dammit, even if it KILLS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL. Do you think she is Irish?
At first I thought she was shrieking at the big guy! Then I saw the kid. What a shrew!
Kat - now I'm laughing out loud!
Luv the Irish Mums! Luv 'em:<)!If that doesn't scare the hell outta ya' what will???
You do you think is responsible for all those conversions, all those coming home stories. They are Saint Makers, for heaven's sake.
Terry: I just love you posts! Just love 'em (is that an inordinate attachment???)I gotta laugh and think and pray.And you help me to do all three.God luv ya!
I saw this video a long time ago and wondered about two things:1. Has she finally managed to drive him completely away from the Church with her conduct?2. Who had the audacity to tape something like this and scandalize a Catholic family (now, I know that this is not representative of Catholic families, but you know some people out there will paint that picture with that one brush).
Tom In Vegas: you must not be Irish. Or you must come from a very happy and well adjusted family. I think God likes us to laugh.Terry: Ditto Padre's last comment.Your blog led me the the crescat. Oh. She is wonderful,isn't she? I really needed the laughs I found.
Or maybe: View the video with the blond kid with the "really bad perm"...that's just well, (I'm trying, trying, trying to be so good this New Year)...whatever.Yeah, he makes a a lot of sense.Give me another, beer!:>)!And pass over the 'Catechism of the Catholic Church' (like these freaks have even heard of it??)
Oy ... with tears in my eyes from astonishment of the whole scene ... was that Dad sitting there in committed apathy? Naaa, mom wasn't really upset about son's declared atheism, it was really Dad's lack of response to his declared atheism that got her into overdrive ... It freaked her out that everyone she was staring at behind the counter was looking at her seemed alien all of sudden. I am sure she went to confession before the next Mass ...Boy, completely different than my parents when I was doubting the faith ... My Dad recalled his struggle with the faith, but asked me to not to confuse their sinfulness with what the Church taught and is. That stuck with me. Terry - what were you really looking for when you came upon that one?
OH bless that poor Mama's heart! It is sooooo hard to raise kids with faith these days....and it sure does help if you live it yourself. Sigh. Her heart is in the right place, tho, ya know? She cares for her kid's soul and what he believes...maybe this will be the thing to get her own spiritual life in order. May God and His Mother bless her and help her.
And for one more very inante comment:That's got to be a Chicago or Milwaukee Irish Mama.I just know it.I heard it in her "accent".I live in Wisconsin.That is no northern Wisconsin/Minnesota accent.Believe me, I know:<)!
Oo Ya I knoooow. I went to UW-Madison.
Maria: Praised be Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and all the saints you came outta there unscathed!:<)! God is good! Here in the northland we call that the "Socialist Republic of Madison"--a state unto itself!!And have a pint in honor of the Holy Family, will ya?
Not altogether unscathed, Padre.That was my former life of radicalism--you know, before the Holy Spirt re-shuffled me, in right order. Grad school was elsewhere. LOL.
I watched that video twice - on the second watching, I really had to ask myself what the heck was up with that father. One common factor in the formation of atheists is an absent or bad father: in this case, the father seems to be absent though physically present. One suspects that this has been true for much of this kid's life. So, is it any surprise that the kid declares himself an atheist?
Terry, LOL Where did you find this? Funny and sadly typical all at the same time. Sr. Petra
Upon further reflection, I think this Mum should the the Director of the RCIA in her parish, no, wait, her DIOCESE!!That'll bring 'em in, yeah?Oh, I can't stop laughing...(is that a sin?)
Terry: OMG(osh)...I saw this after the "Pissed Catholic Mother"...can your kitties do this?Its; the cat that can eat with a fork...yeah!)I mean, it's just "batshitcrazy" as the video was named...just sayin':<)!(Cat are you around, girl? Huh?!!)And by the way, our Shetland sheepdog is named "Tessa"...she looks NOTHING like this fantaskicat...nothin'...
