Daily Rome Shot 554, etc. including a whopper

This is from a tweet.  The painting was being worked on by restorers.

Things are looking grim for black. But it’s black’s move.


So that you know, for sure, what we are up against (only figuratively, thanks be to God).  From the cesspool that is Twitter.

This is total B as in B, S as in S.  However, according to the Big Lie Theory, if you tell a lie, make it a) a big one b) repeat it often.  The idea is that, eventually, people will start to doubt their correct inclination that they are being lied to and will then wonder if, since the liars are not relenting, maybe what they are told is … maybe… maybe?… true.

The “underlying message” of the BIBLE is “inclusion” of … sodomy?

    The Pontifical Academy of Life might want to ask the people of Sodom their opinion on the subject before liking Fr. Martin’s tweets. Oh that’s right. It’s not Fr. Martin’s opinion – he was just informing us that a famous biblical scholar’s opinion was that the Gospel calls for inclusion for LBGTQ – not his own personal opinion.

  2. AA Cunningham says:

    James Martin LGBTQWXYZSJ is the pied piper of sodomy.

  3. Prayerful says:

    The Pontifical Life Academy under Francis has given more than a slight impression that it supports euthanasia and cares little about abortion that ‘settled fact’ of Italian political life. Given that, their Twitter like for Fr James Martin SJ and his message is probably the most unsurprising thing these days. If there’s any controversy on that, it is something deniable and blameable on a rogue intern.

    For God so loved the world, that he sent his only Son, to delivers us from the social sin of homophobia…

    Breugemann is a respected scholar and UCC minister. He taught at Union Theological Seminary (UCC) & Columbia Theological Seminary (Presbyterian).

    It important to note, however, that he has a well-known Liberal Christian perspective.? Martin’s failure to acknowledge that fact is intellectually dishonest.

    Breuggemann’s theology is not worth emulating, and resembles the pages of the NY Times and the Atlantic more than apostolic Christianity.

    Unsurprisingly, his church is hurtling toward demographic extinction. Membership in the UCC, which formed in 1957 with the merger of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and Congregational Christian Churches, has dropped by half, from over 2,000,000 at its formation to 800,000 today.

    But it is no surprise that Martin would cite him without such context. It’s his standard M.O. and demonstrates his puddle-deep theological understanding.

    He has always been willing to take a position on an issue he knows nothing about. His attempts to impugn the new Mass translations were especially laughable, as they demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of Latin grammar.

    James Martin SJ is an official advisor for the Vatican Communications too. What scandal.

  6. Benedict Joseph says:

    One is left to wonder how Jim Martin will stumble over the reading from 1 Corinthians tomorrow morning — that is, if he has time for Holy Mass.
    “Do not be deceived;
    neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers
    nor boy prostitutes nor sodomites nor thieves
    nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers
    will inherit the Kingdom of God.
    That is what some of you used to be;
    but now you have had yourselves washed, you were sanctified,
    you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
    and in the Spirit of our God.

    There is something about today Tuesday’s first reading that resonates with this…

    Years ago I read a story in the newspaper that enlightened me as to the ultimate ends of H. and why it should be illegal.

    When H. Was illegal, I believe in the 50’s an older rich man involved in literature or movies and who had many famous friends and hosted many formal dinners at his home; met a male child playing at the beach with friends. The man courted the boy and the child- about pre teen, began to live with the man. They took a formal picture together, one would think it were father and son. I surmised that because he was rich and famous no one said anything.

    After a lifetime together the man later died and the boy was now an adult male and this was his interview that I read. He said “ X* made me who I am today.”

    (* I don’t recall the famous man’s name so I wrote X)

    I remember this article because I always wondered: how did this happen? why was this allowed?

    Is this the end that professor Martin seems to acclaim ?

    Scratch newspaper, it must have been an issue of vanity fair magazine from ~1993.
    The subject of the article was now an artist .

    @Fr. Reader beat me to it…1 Cor 6:1-11 from today’s reading is quite telling of the future.

  12. KateD says:

    “…the underlying message of the Bible, especially the Gospels, is welcome and inclusion for LGBTQ people.”

    lol. Oh Ok.

    (someone get the straight jacket, we’ve got a live one!)
