It's a matter of filial piety and honor

Our Lady of SchoenstattThe Servant of God, Father Joseph Kentenich, Founder of the Schoenstatt Apostolic Movement--or was it his disciple, Joseph Engling?--speaking in prayer to our Blessed Mother, once said:

"If they take away my honor, then I'll tend to yours."

I made that promise my own almost 20 years ago. I haven't regretted it for one second, although most times I haven't been diligent enough to follow through with it.

That cowardice came to an end today.

The excuse of "equal opportunity humor" that many South Park apologists put forward does not excuse the offense; it holds no water. Laughing at this "humor" only shows the depth of coarseness into which our social discourse has fallen into.

I protest it, condemn it, and decry it.

And as the Lord is forgiving, because He has forgiven my many sins, may those who offend His Mother turn to Him for forgiveness and healing, and a better sense of humor.

Whatever they do is fine, but for the love of Allah, don't flush the Koran down the toilet.

I remember one episode where they had "Sword of the Jew-Slayer Montessori Madrassa"

That sounds like something Osama would say. "Smite the infidels!!"

Not a problem unless you're an infidel. Osama is an infidel BTW.

YA, I agree. It didn't really suprise me. But I found it a little beyond my taste. I'm a Christian, but not Catholic so I do find it funny when people claim that they see Mary in trees and things, and claim it has healing powers.

As bad as it makes me feel, I did LMAO at what the Pope said, and again when I read it in the article above.....

I'm sick I guess.....

You're not a sicko. I haven't missed an episode in years and don't consider myself that way. Its just sometimes envelope pushers go too far.
The Pope lines were funny.
Sometimes Issac Hayes' lines go too far.
The blood could have come from another part of the statue.

I am Protestant. We read ours quite often.

I am also aware that heresy is not to be dealt with by kissing up to the heretic.

Amen. I personally....since Jesus died for my sins, not Mary...would care more about when Jesus is attacked. But, I am a wacky Protestant I guess.

But, at the same time, South Park is funny. I simply can't get worked up over a CARTOON. There are real instances of blasphemy like feces-painted Christ's in NYC art museums. I simply am not going to let little fat Cartman get me worked up. I just am not.

I wish some Catholics (since some on another thread said they were Catholic and were't offended) could just lighten up a little bit.

Good grief, LIGHTEN UP, will you? My remark was only intended as a JOKE - only. Don't be so series! (Spelling mistake is a JOKE, too. OK?

I recognized it as an attempt at a joke... but you have to know a ~little~ bit (this much > <) about a subject before your jokes will ever work. Sorry :~D

Wow, you're a tuff nut to crack. Be sure not to give anyone a break, okay? Consistency is important, and you're on your way. Enough already. I give up.

Clearly you're in a better mood today than you were Saturday, and I'm just thrilled about that. :~D

Well, I never responded to you on Saturday. You have me confused with someone else. And I have never lost my temper or have been rude to anyone, including you, in any response of mine. That is undignified, but one does occasionally see that here in various threads.

He's obviously matured a lot in the last year.

Have not.
