Tell Me Somethin' Good....

A post by Chaka

Gentle Reader: Still here! I’ve been fighting, not too successfully, a sinus infection that developed after my cold/flu a few weeks ago. I spent 2 hours waiting on Saturday at “urgent” care, saw the doctor for 10 minutes and left with a script for a double-powered antiobiotic. Good times…good times….

So, what’s new?

Did anyone notice that Britain now allows gay “couples” to marry in houses of worship? Supposedly, houses of worship are allowed to “opt out”. I should start a pool and give money to the person who can most closely guess the date that a Catholic Church in the UK will be forced by the Courts to allow a gay “marriage” inside the Church.

Did anyone notice how the CPD (Chicago Police Department) sat on their hands and allowed gay rights protestors to disrupt a Mass at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago? Where are all the Catholic cops? Where are all the Catholics? Welcome to the Emanuel (wherein God will not be with us) years, y’all!

Did anyone notice that Obama has now decided that he is also the world, he is also the Constitution? Apparently, the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) was making him feel like taking a smoke break so he decided to rule that law of the land should be ignored. No word on if he went and grabbed a quick puff behind the Rose Garden bushes anyway.

Did anyone notice that Archbishop Nienstedt continues to be a thorn in the local liberals side by refusing to die or get caught proclaiming something contrary to Church teaching! Yes, you read it here first!

Did anyone catch Father Phleger, uh, I mean, Father Tegeder’s latest “Hey look at me! Hey, notice how I can thumb my nose and open my mouth at the same time!” schtick?

Did anyone notice how Dr. Edward Peters is now being attacked for, I don’t know, gosh, actually interpreting Canon Law. Do you know that he is a Canon Lawyer? You know, like, he does that for a living?

Did anyone notice how overnight the gay rights movement switched tactics to “oh, poor me”? “We are so wronged and misunderstood”.

I’m a Roman Catholic and I feel wronged and misunderstood. What part of Church teachings do the “conscientious objectors” fail to understand? Reject part of it, is to reject all of it. Must Christ divide Himself on the Cross to appease everyone?

I believe that these conscientious liberators whom you've denounced, would reject Christ if he appeared today because his message has never changed. He would still require something from a people who are unwilling to give up, pick up, or live for someone other than themselves.
Sorry to hear you've been sick. I hope your feeling better now. :)

Saline spray, saline spray. No chemicals - just use saline spray. I swear by it. Musinex to get it flowing if you are really bad.

Terry is right about the saline but be sure your sitting upright after you use it and fight the urge to lie down after because it runs from the inside of your nose into your ears. I got a nasty ear infection that way and if your ears get clogged, the saline isn't gonna do squat- You'll have to try prayer at that point. :)

I wanna know what people did with a sinus infection , strep throat, or an ear infection a hundred years ago. Did they just fester and die!?

With the survival of the fittest, the fittest must of been some sight.
