Barack takes the stage with a tittup
His face animated and lit up
To those who can think
All his lies leave a stink
But the liberal jerks eat that sh!t up

a nostalgic thread about FR days gone by, memorializing a long time wonderful Freeper.

Obama isn’t fooling me
hiding the survivors of Benghazi.
Not one of them has pulled a tittup,
to tell us about the colossal fuck-up
through which Obama slept like a baby.

so Cardinal Dolan permits Biden to tittup right to the communion rail. that is a scandal. he prefers to persuade him towards opposition to abortion by discussion rather than denying him the Eucharist? isn't it aiding and abetting a sacrilege to give it to him knowing his views????

There should be an opportunity for Biden to be informed of his error and to repent of it before he is denied. There is not so much to “discuss” about it. It should be like an Eric Holder “dialog” on race.

biden has the opportunity every single day to repent of his error and to confess it and to not sin again, and as for being INFORMED all he needs to do is read the catholic catechism, it’s right in there. He’s a member of the Obama administration which would deny Catholic providers a conscience exemption to perpetrating things which are wrong as declared by the church. If priests/bishops do not make a public spectacle of refusing them [i know for a fact that fr. decelles has refused Jim Moran communion when he was at St Mary’s in alexandria and he would refuse any recognized proabort that presented himself at st raymonds now] it is a bad example for those in the pews. I would bet that your rank and file Catholic is ignorant of the fact that being a proponent of abortion brings self excommunication. if the Church doesn’t TEACH THAT FACT then how is anyone to know it?
Were students in an elementary school class told not to do something, and one kid did it, and there was a party thereafter for the kids to celebrate an occasion and the teacher to say Johnny cannot have cupcakes at our party because he did XYZ which you were all told beforehand was wrong to do, wouldn’t that be a teaching moment for the kids as to the propriety of doing XYZ?

I’m not defending Dolan, who clearly doesn’t want to do his job. I’m only saying that the process to follow is to have a little chat before imposing punishment.

i guess i presume they’ve chatted. there’s no mystery that Biden says he’s prolife but refuses to impose his views on anyone, which doesn’t get you off the hook with the Church.

I cannot convey how deeply disappointed I am to read this, although I am not surprised. Where is Cardinal Burke when you need him? Or Chaput?

I was going to change it, but wondered if anyone would notice if I used a bad word. Guess so.

Isn’t it an additional sin to knowingly continue to receive Communion with a sin like this? It is kinder to refuse Communion than to allow this. True, the Bishop(s) should take Joey and Nancy and countless others aside and tell them the Truth.

Of course, but the bishops want to make sure they are in good standing when the budget for Catholic Charities comes up, or their input is wanted on gun control, immigration or a nuclear freeze or other important church topics.

The only church topic that IS important is the souls of their sheep. They need to refocus on their mission.

did you see this? xshub and xsboy can't stand MCW, he was arrested for shoplifting a ralph lauren bathrobe at Lord and Taylor at Carousel Mall right before Christmas. That being said, this is sad and i wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Shoplifting? Wow. Any fire is sad to me. The emotion of families on the scene are powerful. Wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.

I think I read that it is their home Bishop who is supposed to perform this task, i.e. it is none of Dolan’s business. Nancy is beholden to the SF Bishop, and Uncle Joe to the Bishop of Wilmington, DE.

But, I wonder about Cardinal Wuerel’s jurisdiction, since they both spend so much time in DC.

I had an uncle who used a similar phrase when we used to hunting with him-if we shot a deer and had to go after it, and it was found down/dead, my uncle would say it is over there, tits up.

If affecting a tittup walk
To call the attention away
From the nonsensical nature
Of whatever he has to say

Is the last ditch effort of
Emperor Obama and his bunch,
They are truly ill-equipped
For this fact-finding crunch

Between kids in the Bahamas
And Biden’s limo rental bills
I suppose the only thing to do
Is improve their strutting skills...

At the risk of being uncharitable myself, it makes me see red every time Biden and Nasty Nancy are allowed to receive holy communion and not a word is spoken against it. If I supported the things they do-in public-I’d expect to be censured in public, no doubt about it...
