    Smoke of Satan still permitted… Francis outlaws Sale of Cigarettes in Vatican City Francis has once again shown his iron “papal” fist: In a fearless move against the powers of darkness, the “Pope” has now outlawed the sale of cigarettes throughout every square inch of the 0.17 sq mi of Vatican City State, effective Jan. 1, 2018. In a Nov. 9 statement released by the Unholy See’s Press Office, spokesman Greg Burke explained the move on the grounds that “the Holy See cannot contribute to an activity that clearly damages the health of people”, according to a report published by...

    Officials attempted to stop the spread of CatholicismDETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - British anti-Catholic laws have resulted in the compilation of a searchable ancestry database of hundreds of thousands of Catholics. Launched on October 7, the Catholic Family History Society provides resources and help for Roman Catholics to trace their ancestry. So far, the records of about 275,000 English, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Welsh, Scottish and Irish Catholics living in England from 1607–1840 have been transcribed into a searchable database. Brother Rory Higgins, an Australian monk, compiled the records and named the database after his mother. The Margaret Higgins Database is...

    Things We Can Learn from Dogs and Cats Msgr. Charles Pope • October 4, 2017 • Here at Holy Comforter-St. Cyprian Parish in Washington, D.C., we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi with the blessing of the animals. Although most folks bring dogs to be blessed, there are usually some who bring cats and a few other animals like ferrets. Once, someone even brought a snake!In the past I have shared a list of things we can learn from dogs. When I was growing up, we always had a dog, so although I did not compose the...

    Calvinism – You have two bulls. They argue with each other incessantly. You have no idea what they are talking about. Appalachian holiness – You have two snakes. Acts 29 – You have a bull and a cow. They are absolutely, positively, 100% equal in value, dignity, and worth. Nondenominational – You have two cows. You baptize each of them six times. You claim to have 12 cows. “New” Calvinism – You have two cows. You stole them from the Southern Baptists. The Southern Baptist Convention – You have two cows. Also a weirdly large amount of political capital, now...

    A billboard erected on a busy road in Indianapolis, Indiana, is sparking heated controversy among residents. The sign in question, which can be seen from the southbound lanes on I-465 near the Washington Street exit, claims to list the characteristics of "the perfect man."Among the traits listed on the contentious sign are "married 6 year old," "slave owner," "rapist," "beheaded 600 Jews in one day," "13 wives, 11 at one time" and "tortured and killed unbelievers." By now, you've likely figure out that the traits listed here are anything but those of an ideal human being -- and opponents...

    Proverb 26:17 reminds me of a time in the early 1980's when I lived in San Bernardino. One of my older brothers, Gene, was living with me and my first wife at the time. Gene was, and still is a small man. He stood about 5' 6" and maybe weighed about 130 pounds, if he was wearing wet cloths. He was a guy who never could, and never would get in a fight. Jim was an air force mechanic stationed at Norton Air Force base. This was like 10 years before they closed it down. Jim was a big...

  • ISIS Flag Added To ‘Coexist’ Stickers

    U.S.—The Islamic State’s official flag has been added to the newest batch of the popular “Coexist” bumper stickers, and will be included in all future iterations of the famous graphic, sources confirmed Monday. The new logo depicts the flag protruding from the top of the peace sign that constitutes the letter “o” in the word as it proudly billows in the breeze. “We wanted our message of tolerance to include the guys who are hacking unbelievers’ heads off at an alarming rate,” a representative for the bumper sticker manufacturer told reporters. “Now even Islamic State fighters can coexist peacefully with...

    A group of pro-life Christians gathered outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Arizona recently only to be met by a cowbell wielding Planned Parenthood ‘escort’ in what can only be described as a truly bizarre scene. The man in the video is Jeff Durbin, who the NY Post recently smeared as an ‘extremist’ hipster pastor, and he regularly stands in front of Planned Parenthood facilities in hopes of convincing women not to go through with potential abortions. While he attempts to have rational conversations, he’s often met with uncontrollable rage, as was the case in this particular video. He pleads...

    Asparagus is so venerated in Worcester that it has been blessed in a special ceremony in the city's cathedral. But the thanksgiving service celebrating the local crop has been criticised by other Anglicans who have called it "absurd". The bizarre Sunday evensong service was defended by the cathedral's Precentor, who said the vegetable was "a sign of the abundant provision and generosity of God".

    The Vatican announced today that Pope Francis has named Cardinal Raymond Burke to be the first prefect of the Congregation of Janitorial Services.Francis’ decision to choose the staunch conservative to head the new department is a sign to many that Francis does see a role for Burke in his pontificate, despite disagreements the two have had in the past.Several sources in the Vatican say that Francis chose Cardinal Burke because he is known to work well “cleaning up messes.” “His Holiness is well aware of Burke’s obsession with cleaning things up,” said Vatican advisor Monsignor Leonardo Valdes. “[Pope Francis] is...
  • New edition of the Bible announced [Satire]

    Pope Francis has announced that a new edition of the Bible is to be released, removing some of the more "rigid" books (e.g. the four gospels) and adding a few new ones. After all, the Bible was put together about 1500 years ago. It was reaffirmed by the Council of Trent in 1546, although at the time some liberals imbued with the "Spirit of Trent" tried to slip in a few extras that took their fancy. In any case, it isn't modern and up to date! The New Non-Rigid Bible will have a loose-leaf format so that pages can be...

    Most of my readers have never been pope, and probably only one or two ever will be, so you don't realise how difficult the job of a pope is. You probably think that it just involves sitting around in Rome eating pasta, going to Mass, and occasionally saying something about Catholic doctrine. And the latter ought to be easy enough, as just about every issue under the sun has been discussed by previous popes, so you don't have to say anything original, although you can of course rephrase things in your own words. On no account try to change any...
