'Pornographic' Recordings Disrupt Mass (Santa Fe, NM)
The Albuquerque Journal ^ | February 22, 2007 | Kate Wilson

Posted on 02/22/2007 6:58:16 AM PST by CedarDave

Worshipers were interrupted during an Ash Wednesday service at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis by a trio of hidden CD players spewing "pornographic" messages from beneath pews.

Three CD players had been duct-taped beneath the pews and rigged to go off at 12:20 p.m., Santa Fe Police Capt. Gary Johnson said. An Ash Wednesday service was being conducted at the time, and Johnson said responding officers described the messages to him as pornographic, although he wouldn't go into detail about their content.

The cathedral staff found and removed the three CD players, then called police while church-goers evacuated the cathedral.

The bomb squad arrived at 1 p.m. and destroyed two of the devices, Johnson said. Realizing the devices didn't contain explosives, officers saved the third CD player for evidence.

"We take this very seriously," Johnson said. "We'll be analyzing the piece of equipment for DNA and fingerprints. We'll also be reaching out to the federal authorities. We're going to use whatever resources we can possibly use to solve this case."

Most likely high school kids. Of course, in Santa Fe gay and lesbian relationships and the homosexual lifestyle are celebrated by the newly arrived east and west coast liberals. It's no wonder that young adults have no respect for traditional religions that teach differently.

If they had any stones they would have done it in a mosque.

I doubt high school kids. More likely someone whose lifestyle and/or behavior is at odds with the Church.

I suspect the followers of an 'alternate' lifestyle too.

If there's anything that will resurrect the Catholic Church, after the Priest sex scandals of late, it will be the HATRED that is shown and demonstrated by the more militant among the Gay community against the Church.

The Church is nowhere even close to being dead.

They would have to travel to Abiquiu near the home of famed artist Georgia O'Keefe; its been there for 25+ years, at least. As far as I know, that one has not been a hotbed of Islam; just another "alternative" religion, like the Sikhs, that are present in the Santa Fe area.

Good old Abiquiu, home of CFA. Is he still pestering radio listeners on the Villanucci show?

I swear that every time I heard him, he sounded bored and/or depressed. Not exactly the life of the party type.

I vote for the recent converts from the YouTube video blog about hating God. There are so many children who don't know the Christian faith now, since it's not taught at daycare and Mom and Dad need their Sunday "downtime". We are reaping what the feminist/homosex agenda had sown back in the '60's. I don't think this was just a prank, I think it was meant to harm the faithful.
Here's another case in point. "Art students"!

I am an agnostic and find nothing humorous about this. Somebody's Momma ought to be tearing the hide off their backside, or should have done it more when they were kids. This is just simply a terribly disrespectful and crude act by uncivilized punks.

would it have been any better if done at a town meeting? yeah sure, someone should get a whooping, but kids (even good kids) sometimes do dumb things.

The School for the Deaf actually has a very nice auditorium that is used by the community. They certainly wouldn't have used the now-demolished Sweeney Convention Center, which was a converted junior-high gym. But, of course, the combination of the wording with the location is always good for chuckles. And the fact that it is the gay men's choir (no bass voices?) adds to the humor.

You are right. There is nothing humorous about this. The persecution of the Jews in Europe probably started in much the same way, a little bit at a time. Christians next?

I think CFA* was on Drudge one night, IIRC. Maybe he'll show up on Mark Levin some day if the ABQ area gets his show.

*for the unaware, CFA=Chris From Abiquiu.

Could be, but I'll stick with young people. I said high school kids, but I'd up the age to include SF Community College, College of Santa Fe and St. John's College age persons.

Last year before Christmas our Pastor looked out the Rectory window and noticed the lights were on in the old Convent, so he called the police. Someone had broken in. The police figured it was a transient trying to get in out of the cold. An hour later, the lights were on again. The police went inside and found that some of the Stained Glass windows had been smashed and other things had been vandalized. They checked out the neighborhood for "persons" walking around. An hour later the lights were back on. This time the police went in and found that most of the wooden furniture had been broken up and piled up in the form of a bonfire and a can of gas next to it. We had to spend some serious money to seal the Convent. The police did not want to say it was a Hate Crime. We now need at least two Knights of Columbus at Eucharistic Adoration because the old ladies are scared to be in the Church at night alone.

Can't. Mosques don't have pews.

Just bad smells from all the farting at God while bowing to Satan.

I might agree if the CDs depicted homosexual sex. Hetero sex dilutes the message too much. High school kids is a better fit.
