What's the difference between a rant and a whine?


I'm just not sure...

Q: Why aren’t you going to the Vatican blogger meeting? Will you be at the beatification?




A: No. Why? I didn’t apply. And, No. Why? I have done the big beatification thing more than once.



Q: Will you translate this Latin (or English thing into Latin) for me? It won’t take you long.




A: No. And yes, it did take a long time. It took 30 years of reading and writing Latin, as a matter of fact.

  2. It seems to me that his Beatification answer was so he could stay neutral in the Traddy war over JP's Beatification. (Coming down on one side or the other could potentially be a co$tly mi$take.)

  6. He did not go to Rome, he went instead to NYC to be interviewed for the beatification of JPII by FNC. I bet he did mention the Mystic Monk coffee during the interview. LOL

  7. I actually think he's sounding a little uppity lately. It's a tough time to be a priest.

  8. Anyone requesting anything translated should be ready to pony up some dough...and not just expect someone to do it for free...if you're that cheap then find a local university where some student can use it for an assignment.

  10. The difference? You can't drink rant.

  11. A rant is angry, a whine is self-pitying. Simple distinction, no?
