Skosh is derived from the Japanese word “skoshi.”

Skosh

The word skosh comes from the ancient land of Slosh where the people (Boozemen) made all important decisions (with or without ice) over a drink and thus were happy all night but couldn’t remember it the next morning.

Then they joined the Canadian Club, converted to Calvertism and founded Novaskoshland to be free to distill and brew during their three seasons of winter.

(From the soon to be written book, “A Mime is a Terrible Thing When Wasted”.)

My father hates this word! I recall him seeing a Levi's jeans TV ad which mentioned new jeans "with a skosh more room in the leg and seat". The first thing out of his mouth was "WTH is a skosh!? are we now just making up words?". Keep in mind this was in the late 70's and the term was not really heard outside the west coast then. I laughed for days at his reaction, and giggled every time the ad came on.

As an adolescent, I lived in Taiwan for two years when my Father was stationed there. We lived a skosh north of Taipei in the village of Shantzehou, Yangmingshan atop what was colloqiually known as Grass Mountain. Across the main road from us was the Naval Auxiliary Communications Commannd, a CIA front. The Gimo's summer residence was located a couple miles above us. Summer weekends the entire road from Taipei up to his digs was lined by soldiers at intervals of a few yards.

All this is brought to mindby the bing.com wallpaper from aearlier this week:



Taipei City from Yangmingshan National Park


America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Because tou didnt read it closel

“I say this also thinking about the preaching and content of our preaching. A beautiful homily, a genuine sermon must begin with the first proclamation, with the proclamation of salvation. There is nothing more solid, deep and sure than this proclamation. Then you have to do catechesis. Then you can draw even a moral consequence. But the proclamation of the saving love of God comes before moral and religious imperatives. Today sometimes it seems that the opposite order is prevailing. The homily is the touchstone to measure the pastor’s proximity and ability to meet his people, because those who preach must recognize the heart of their community and must be able to see where the desire for God is lively and ardent. The message of the Gospel, therefore, is not to be reduced to some aspects that, although relevant, on their own do not show the heart of the message of Jesus Christ.

love the sinner, hate the sin, get them insode, and save the soul.

one only needs ro see tje media treatment of what he actually said, to realize the wisdom behind the words.

He says earlier, the churches doctrine, on these matters is quite clear, and I am a son of the Church.

and now he has media all over the world, telling liberals..its ok to back inside those doors, where the message comes from the pulpit, not the media.

Reading comprehension.

Various parts have been decontextualized to fit the medias narrative.

Basically what he said was...get them inside the Church, and deliver your message there..

he appears to be wanting to take the emphasis OFF of flagrant sin, which is FAR too often the case in today’s church. There are a HANDFUL of priests who preach the sin of gay marriage and abortion, the majority of the AMchurch pooh-poohs it. This guy is giving them cover to continue doing so.

To put it more simply...consider the Fishes and Loaves.

Jesus, could have seen clearly into the hearts of the 5000.

He didnt. He ministered to them, by feeding them. And THEN he preaced ro them.

Thats all the Pontiff reiterated.

ok, lets assume that is true. how do you propose to get the leftwing clergy [which is the majority] to preach the truth of sin? i assure you, and Ti can back me up on this. The catholic church in Syracuse[not the campus ministry] which adorned itself with rainbow banners, and who had gays preaching the homily from the pulpit, WILL undoubtedly celebrate a gay marriage before long. THAT is the bent of the clergy there.

Let me ask a simple question. Then I will show how wrong you really are.

Is it more effective, to make public statements, through a media filter, or preach to people directly?

Now, let me ask you.,.how much Coverage does the March for Life get?

Zero,Zip,Nada,None.

We arent reaching anyone that way, and we arent saving lives.

If you get them inside the door, the filter is removed, and souls can be ministered to, and maybe lives can be saved.

I will however agree with you in part.

By making that proclamation, he needed to go one step further, and declare that the moneychangers would be thrown out of the temple. (e.g. Pro abort pols that trade on Carholic ethnicity would be tossed, publicly...there is according to Canon, a different standard for those people..which is to say they are on the level of false prophets)

That’s what I got from reading a long article about him yesterday. We should spend less time judging since that is God’s purview and not ours anyway.

I think the hope is that the Amchurch lefties are dying off. No one is going to make the Syracuse priests change, but they will be replaced.

Thats a different matter. And I do not disagree with you,

But that is an internal matter resolved over time, by replacing Bishops, and Cardinals.

And..I will point this out, William F. Buckley posited the question.

Who is the greater Moral hero, the Homosexual that resists both his impulse to sin, and violate his vows, or the straight priest, with only one hurdle to avoid? (paraphrased, he said ot more eloquently)

And the Pontiff touched on that, again mischaracterized)

If they crack open a Bible, the Word is crystal clear about sin. This short attention span theater we live in doesn’t retain anything from sound bites anyway.

Catholics do not crack open Bibles, you know that! and they are dependent on the homily to direct them. Falls Churcher leftwing Catholics would walk out of St James when Father DeCelles would talk about the sin of abortion. i want to know how hobbes thinks that constituency is going to be made to see the light when we are preaching social justice and washing the feet of muslim girls.

rank and file Catholics, no. but the leftist clergy will seize on this to provide cover for what they have focused on all along-- social justice, with not a word to spare for aborted babies.
