"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.

I have to get offline.
But not without comment. I'm convinced the biggest service the Internet provides is to show how damnable stupid human beings are. I just saw a piece about some Russian entrepreneurs dumping a donkey out of a plane with a parachute as an advertising stunt, scaring beach goers in the process. Talk about inhumane!
Stupid-assed news stories fill Spirit Daily, Drudge, Pewsitters, and blogs today. Who cares if an elephant was possessed? Stupid people. Who wants dead relatives at their bed side as they are dying? If you knew mine you'd know how terrifying that would be. Who cares if the Pope says the traditional Mass in private? Such trivial pursuit! "Academic bias against Catholics" - oh that's news - no effing kidding! And don't forget Pewsitter's 8 year old headline from Newsweek. I also noted the headline that the USCCB urge extension of unemployment benefits... Where the hell do they think the money is going to come from? As they get permission to close stable parishes and sell off assets? Who's in Obama's back pocket?
Then there is the never ending saga of Mel, Lindsay, and the rest of the worthless. Completely stupid.
I've got to start making better use of my time.
