Compromised: Michael Voris exposes Bishop Martin Amos of Davenport.

A feel-good story.

It's almost Disneyesque.  Studious kid in Catholic High School can't afford college, applies for a scholarship, backed by students and letters of recommendation by teachers, student wins scholarship only to be told no, no, no by the bishop of the place.  The kid, the school, indeed the nation are sad and all seems lost, when suddenly, the bishop does a complete turn-a-round and permits the graduation ceremony to go forward pretty much as planned.  The kid is not only okayed to receive the scholarship at his graduation, but a representative from the diocese is going to read the commendation by the scholarship board to the kid - at the ceremony.  It's just how it turned out for Howard Brackett.

(Did I mention the kid is gay and he also brought his boyfriend to prom at his Catholic high school, which seems kind of odd in the first place, huh?)

Deep shoulder shrug and silly smile.

    Wow. I am so glad I came back to the Church. Each day is this crazy soap opera unfolding before us. Bunch of criminals...its hysterical and sad.

    1. I know. Do your best to ignore it and steep yourself in the faith through the sacraments and prayer.

      When I returned to the Church some 30+ years ago it was equally as nuts - just not as highly publicized. The best thing to do is ignore this crap - I made the mistake of paying attention to it and blogging about it 6 years ago, and it has been a huge distraction and impediment to prayer ever since.

      I couldn't sleep last night, and so I got up - in the past I used to get up and pray, now I go online. It is not good.

  2. Thank goodness we have Michael Voris to "out" all these people and their corruption. He's so good at it.

    1. That's cuz he's "the REAL Catholic."

      Eminem just started playing in my head.

    2. I've read comments elsewhere and people are against it - Michael, I mean.

      I don't know what to do now.
