The Chaldean priest and deacons murdered belonged to a parish whose name is the same as mine, the Church of the Holy Spirit. Poor men, despite a history of intimidation from vandalization and bombs, these men remained steadfast. May the good Lord receive their souls and may the Islamic militants be brought to justice.
Note that three of the links here have to do with Islam and violence. One argues that Mohammad himself was little more than a terrorist, an offensive notion to some, but a hard reality to escape. The Pope made the barest suggestion that a reform and reinterpretation of violence and holy war was required in their religion and Koran, and all hell broke loose. How can we believe anything else when the actions of millions in angry mobs speaks volumes?
The sacking and expulsion of the nuns from their convent is still another case of Islamic radicalism. Is there any living with these people?
"Father Joe's Blog is great fun to read, too bad I will have to strike him dead with lightning some day!"
"Right after evening prayer, I regularly read his Blog and note corrections for my upcoming encyclicals."
"Before I have my security council meeting each morning, I check to see what's new at Fr. Joe's Blog."
"This infidel priest is not funny and is ill-informed!"
PRIESTESS (SR.) M T KANE
"He is a right-wing bigot who is anti-choice and anti-woman. The goddess is not happy with his Blog!"
"He is the poorest priest I know, always pontificating about things he knows nothing about; he is a disgrace!"
"The invasion is going as planned and soon all the clergy will be pod-people from outer space, starting with Father Joe."
"Never have I met someone who was so opposed to true ecumenism and religious freedom. I would like to sacrifice him in my dinner pot and wear his head as an ornament. Voices like his need to be silenced! We should all pray and sup together."
ADOLF HITLER CLONE
"This priest is wrong in his opposition to giving holy communion to anti-life politicians and other proponents of choice. He is not in sync with the majority of American bishops! How is that orthodox? Does he want an altercation at the altar? Now, where are my gas chambers and firing squads?"
