The Italian Americans!



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.

Pazza l'mam-!

Anyway - read Fr. Martin's sister's review here.  (They all stick together you know - she writes for America.  Really.)
