"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.

From the combox: "No one can be a sodomite and a saint at the same time."

Holy and Righteous Abraham and Lot

You don't say. 

I couldn't resist and had to reply:
... at least one Sodomite I know of became a saint - that would be Lot - he and his family left Sodom of course - which just goes to show you, if someone leaves a sinful lifestyle behind, they can indeed be saved and even become a saint.
The Orthodox commemorate Abraham and Lot twice on the Liturgical calendar:
Holy and Righteous Abraham and Lot, October 9
Read their story in the book of Genesis. They are also commemorated on the Sunday of the Holy Forefathers, Dec 11-17.  - Source

Lot has been commemorated in many ancient liturgical canons as well.  See here.

Anyway.  Lot was from Sodom, therefore a Sodomite, and the Church believes he is in Heaven, and therefore a Saint.  Get it?


Columbus did not discover America, he simply claimed it for Spain.  The Chinese discovered it and colonized it way before that.  What?  A Chinese lady proudly explained it to me after I remarked on how much Inca people resembled Chinese people.

That's all.


  1. Maybe it was the Inca who colonized China.

  2. There's a thought. ;)

  3. Of course, both explanations ignore the most obvious: space aliens colonized the Americas and Eurasia.

  4. Terry, I hate to be such a dim-wit, but how do I send you a personal email? I have a great picture of a chinese lady that you might like -- the land lady from Kung Fu Hustle.

  5. T - here it is:


  6. Thanks, Terry!

  7. That Kungfu Hustle landlady is hilarious. I've never seen her before. lol
