Religious urban legends and Catholic parents over the line...
I just got an email warning people not to watch Glee. Sheesh! I thought everyone knew that anyway.
Included in the email was the alleged quote/vision attributed to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton that went something like this:
“Every American would have a black box in their home through which the devil would enter.” *Crossed eye roll...
I had to chuckle, because when I first returned to the Church - before Mother Seton was even canonized - the same vision/prophecy was attributed to St. Frances Xavier Cabrini. Maybe they both had Dish?
Somewhat related - Here is another interesting factoid: Before the printing press became really, really popular, St. Rotundenburger had a vision of the devil printing Bibles on a copy machine. Something like that...
Throw out your kids - keep the TV's! Just kidding!
Warning to parents: Seriously, never ever watch Glee, no matter what the show is about. Kids in band and choir and theater are queer - err, different - anyway. They either need to be bullied to shape up or forced into sports.
Have a great weekend!
*Another version of the prophecy: "And there was a box in every home and the people were sitting around the box. In the box was a flame and the devil was speaking to the people from the box and no one was doing anything about it." I believe this version is attributed to Ronnie Lueken, the occult visionary of Bayside, NY.
Many Trads just blame the Jews.
