Here, exactly, is Fr Z's blog you decide for yourself:

Bis pueri senes?

This is supposed to be a rehearsal of some sort.  I don’t know for which event.

I really want to just smile and shrug this off.  I suspect this isn’t what Pope Francis meant when he said that we clerics have to get out there.

This is too far out there.

DISCLAIMER: Some mouth-breathers out there will claim that I tried to compare WYD to some sort of Nazi rally.  That is NOT what I am about to do.   If there is a better image of non-conformity within a large, uniformed crowd doing something that is just plain wrong, please send it to me.

It is easy for us, in a crowd, in a mob – wherein there is that unpredictable n+x factor involved – to lose our heads and do what everyone else does in the pressure of the moment.  But, Your Excellencies, after watching this, … really?!?

The next time they ask you to do something like this, and they will, please – be that guy? ALL of you?

Meanwhile….  Sirach 3:12-14.

I will keep the combox CLOSED on this.

“Here, exactly, is Fr Z’s blog entry...”

No; you posted Fr Z’s sanitized version. Nice try.
