"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Atta boy!


  1. Is this Fred Phelp's groupies?
    One look at this bunch, and a possible homosexual might just jump right into the "mire":<)!
    Nasty, just plain nasty!

  2. Ahhh, the Brimstone Mafia. The sunglasses kinda give them away.

  3. I love granny in the shades. LOL! This photo never fails to crack me up.

  4. I've seen the FP crew in person; I was in Topeka for Christmas a few years ago and they were out picketing churches with which they disagree.

  5. I'll bet they were real warm and friendly, huh?

  6. Terry: Probably as friendly as a swarm of pit vipers!
    I'm tempted to do a psycho-eval here, but I'll stop...granny with the sunglasses, yeah, she's a real "contender":<)!
    Holy Moses!

    Such charming folks, full of Christian charity -- NOT!!! Full of something else, more like. God help us ...

  8. The westboro Baptist church has about a hundred members 80% of which are Phelps family members- coincidentally I watched it over on youtube today.

    Lucky us, his granddaughter (I think) is singing parody to lady GaGa now and is as charming as well.

    crazy isn't a new idea

  9. BTW. I know people personally who plan on protesting at Mr.Freds funeral when it happens.

  10. +JMJ+

    How . . . charming. =S

  11. These type of people terrify me, they would hang us catholics up in an instance!

    I met a fundie at my friends funeral, last year. She heard me telling someone that I would pray for them, and nearly bit the head off me! "You can go straight to Jesus, you don't need others to pray for you" she blasted.

    Nauseating, completely nauseating. God forgive me, I nearly spiked her tae with something of a large proof.....:)

    Actually, can you imagine getting them all drunk? Just a one-off, not causing them to become addicted or anything, but just to see what the lowered inhibited side of their brain let spill!!!
    I seem to have gone from snarky to just plain Friday insanity. I better go and find a video about boiling carrots, to calm down. My blog is all about 'orange' this week, at least.

    Anyone reading this, who has time, please offer a Hail Mary, for my friend Tony, he was found dead in his flat last year, and had been athere for a couple of days, exactly as he predicted he would be found. He was a kind man.

  12. Sorry, I nearly spiked her 'tea' not 'tae', that's a river in Scotland.

  13. Praying for Tony.

    Just a comment on the photo - It cracks me up because it is so insane - imagine telling people God hates them? That is insanity. And then the granny - it is like a scene out of a sitcom. I just posted it because sometimes some Catholic blog posts come off sounding like this. But I'm sure all of my readers got that.

  14. Religion can cause insanity, the Rosary seems to smooth out my quirky areas, when I allow it to. Still so much ego roaming around my being, and the daft thing is, I know it, but self knowledge doesn't seem to be my release button. i suppose, in a way, it isn't anyone's release button, cos if it was, we would all become non-culpable, wouldn't we? I mean, I admit at Mass, each week, that I have sinned through my own fault, therefore having the knowledge, otherwise what am I admitting to? Sorry, I'm going off on another tangent here, but it must be a surrender of will, that releases, not self knowledge??? Mmm...how do I become maleable enough to surrender more freely, regularly? This is some type of self will I'm battling, it seems. I never did find that carrot video. Sorry Terry, for rambling in your comment section. It is Friday tho, anything goes.....(within Church teaching, that is)

  15. Isn't it illegal to wear the flag as a piece of clothing - especially upside down? If it's not illegal then it should be!
