Fr. Albert


Banking on that hundredfold.
.
Yesterday afternoon I flipped on the television to check the weather channel - it has been so hot and humid I wanted to see if another storm was headed our way.  The TV was set to the Fox channel and guess who was on - Fr. Cutie and his new talk show, The Fr. Albert Show.  I hadn't realized his talk-show was airing on Fox - I expected it would be on Telemundo or something.  Yet there he was in his dog collar, interviewing a young woman living off her mother.  He feigned shock at the $800 designer shoes the daughter charged on her mom's Visa, as if he doesn't know what designer costs.  I quickly clicked away after listening to the Jerry Springer-style guffaws from the audience.  What a sleaze show.
.
It seems likely to me Cutie became enamored of his own celebrity, got used to the income, and followed the money.  I doubt very much that the 'hooking-up' is what initially led him astray.
.
It's his life.  After all, he has a family to raise now.

    As a priest who often wears the "full" roman collar, I was offended that you identified it as Anglican. It is a Roman collar which was hijacked by the Anglicans and other Protestant denominations, but it is ours and I think we should take it back!

    I turned on the TV the other day as I was cleaning and saw his show. At first I was a little intrigued to see what it was all about. I quickly turned the channel after I realized it was simply a Jerry Springer type show. Definitely a sleazy show! sad.

  3. I will remove the Anglican - I suppose I used the term to show his new affiliation.

  4. I know some people are offended by dog collar, but I kind of like the term in this case.

  5. I have heard Anglican priests jokingly refer to their collars as dog collars. To be honest, I didn't realize there was such controversy over them.

  6. Might want to look at pictures of Roman priests in suits from the 20's, 30's and 40's. They wore the "Anglican Dog Collar" back then too. It's part of the Anglican Patrimony don't you know? Ace

    Remember "lead us not into temptation?" Look what you did to poor Cat! I always thought this was a place to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.
