Did you know Fr. James Martin is half Italian?!
No wonder I love him so much - no matter what he says!
Anyway - The Italian Americans is a great documentary and reinforces my contempt for Irish Americans. What? Is that bad? Okay - but the Irish Americans did not get the true devotion of the Italian Americans - which is why there are so many problems with the American church. What? That's bad too?
Oh. And now I know why all my Italian friends lie. They inherited that from their crooked ancestors who tried to cover for the mafia. They can't help it. Exampalutto:
"So - you're living with your boyfriend?" I ask.
"What? I have my own apartment - he just visits once in awhile - and he's not my boyfriend." She says.
Ya lyin' plate of puttanesca!
"So - you're just coming home from work Chris?" I ask.
"Huh? I don't work. I don't work." She says.
Anyway - read Fr. Martin's sister's review here. (They all stick together you know - she writes for America. Really.)
