This an is a martyr for Christ. He’s receiving his reward now.

And the people responsible for this need our prayers.

A martyr now at the side of his Savior, awaiting judgement on those who murdered him.

Martyrs in the early church were instantly saints.

Then later a verification process was put in place. Here are some details.

The Holy Father would have to waive the 5 year rule...I hope he considers doing so..IMHO it would refocus the church..

Apparently these people have an extreme dislike for swine.Mabye those that are driving them have bad memories of running of cliffs.

2 Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire
Isaiah 66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many

Not bright enough to recognize even outrageously sarcastic sarcasm?

Them too.

Catholic clergy are well-known for beheading people.

The ability to detect sarcasm is function of IQ.

That leaves you in the IQ category that uses words like "dipshit."

oh puh-lease, now the personal attacks on IQ - really?

This place is littered with enough trollish scum that your ridiculous comment could very well be legitimate - lacking a sarcasm tag, anyone having spent a moderate amount of time here could have mistaken them, as I did

Lacking a tag, and compounding them with even more trollish behavior and I'm suspect that you actually did mean them until several called you on it.

that said, my original assessment now seems spot on regardless
