I'm against it!



Stuff I'm against.

  • The mosque in the Bowery - or the financial district of Lower-town Manhattan.  Only a post Christian, Socialist-led United States of American could be so blind as to believe a mosque at the site of the World Trade Center 9/11 attack is anything less than a monument to the victory of Islam over The West.  Islam is not a religion of peace - except for its members of course.  Try to leave Islam and become Christian - off with your head.  Fall in love and have sex with an infidel or outside marriage, the punishment goes from hanging to stoning and off with the head.  So yeah - it's a religion of peace for those who abide strictly by the rules.  BTW - Ray Stella has a great comment on a Fr. Z post tracing the history of the religion of peace...  

  • Gay marriage.  Same-sex couples can't be married.  I knew that as a kid when a molester tried to kiss me and I said:  "Icky!  Boys don't kiss!"  So you see, even an uneducated, simple little kid knows the difference.  No matter what kind of compromises Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck perform while sucking up to the gay lobbyists - it ain't natural.  But gays have a lot of money, and the celebrities, politicians, pundits and evangelicals alike love it.  (FYI - I have never ever been a follower of the likes of Limbaugh, Beck, and Coulter or Haggard.)

  • Sr. Jeannine Gramick and old pseudo-nuns like her.  They are the modern church-ladies - I'd show a photo but the hair and the outfits are hideous, and I know how sensitive my readers are to appropriate church-apparel.  You'd think someone being so pro-gay would have better taste or at least have one of her followers get her a better hair-do, glasses, and pant-suit.  (I know, Gertrude Stein wasn't much of a looker either, neither is Joan Boss-Hog sChiester.)  Anyway, Gramick makes the outrageous claim that 50% of priests are homosexual.  How does she know?  People like her inflate statistics all of the time - think Kinsey Report.  Oh!  Oh!  And just because a guy likes fine food and wine, has more taste than a dyke-nun, loves theater and opera, and Project Runway does not mean he is gay or homosexual or even same-sex attracted.  (If they like cigars you know damn well they are straight!) 

  • LCWR.  I'm against it.  They ought to be suppressed, prohibited, restrained, banned, blocked, dispensed, dispelled and dispersed.  (ala Jackie Chiles)
.
Urgent Update:  Enbrethiliel suggested this could be a meme.  Great idea.  So I will tag some of my favorite feisty bloggers - and people I know still read me and who may actually cooperate...  Don't be offended if you are not on the list - I'm against cry babies - but definitely pro-life.

  4. Wow, I got tagged! I'll have to give this some thought, especially since everything you listed is stuff I'm against, too. I have to come up with some different things. I don't want to be a copycat - I know you're against copycats.

    Good luck tagging Cardinal Sean. The blogging cardinal doesn't answer questions. You would know this if you lived in Boston. Carol at Throw the Bums Out can clue you in.

  7. I'm Against:

    Polyester pantsuits and the bitchy old women religious who wear them. While I realize the pantsuits are made out of industrial strength fabric and will outlast both the human race and cockroaches, these women still wear the polyester for which they ditched their habits. There has been no need to replace it. They still espouse the 60's liberate us from the Church theology and wonder why their orders are dying. It isn't that people are no longer interested in social justice but rather that they focus on social justice to the exclusion of worship. We are here to glorify the lord not to protest nuclear power plants.

    Priests who don't dress like priests; diocesan priests should wear clericals at all times in public, unless they're wearing a cassock or have a really good reason not to, such as being a military chaplain, deployed or on guard duty. Religious priests should dress as required by their order, which should require habits. Hello, Jesuits, this means you.

    Islam. It's the devil.

    False visions that endorse disobedience to the Church. Mary would never speak against the church. Her words to the servants at the Wedding at Cana are all I need; "do whatever He tells you." We are the servants and the Church speaks for Him. Especially noteworthy are those false visions whose adherents immediately vilify anyone who questions the vision; there is no requirement to have faith in private revelations even if they're approved. Note that nobody vilifies those who don't take stock in approved apparitions.

    Priests and religious who don't faithfully follow church teaching, especially those who advocate positions against church teaching.

    Plastic bags. See above; another petroleum product that lasts indefinitely.

    The passive voice. It's evil. Evil.

  16. All I know is that Crescat's Love Novena has done WONDERS for MY love life ;)

    What I am against?? 3 feet of snow that has to be removed before I can even leave the house to go to work, people that can't make a fresh pot when they take the last cup of coffee, fashions nowadays where me, a sexy size 12, is now the new size 18, and size 6 is the new size 12, guys who think just because I'm in the motorcycle shop think I'm picking up something for my HUSBAND, people who think that I shouldn't date guy 15 years younger than I (they should talk to Demi :), people who think I shouldn't be an engineer because I'm taking a good-paying job away from a MAN who needs it to support his family...

    Yesshh...time for a beer (oh yeah--people who think that it's not ladylike for women to drink beer)..

    End of rant...

    Not that I'm complaining or anything (Bwahahahahaha!), but why am I, the one who suggested the meme-ification of this post in the first place--one of those without a creatively rewritten blog name? I feel left out . . . =(

    I won't hate you if you make fun of my shredded cheese, Terry. I promise!
