From the “Oooooookay” Dept.
I’d forgotten to set the software to notify me of new guest entries at my new address, so I had this big backlog. I was looking over them and found these edifying messages rocketing in out of The Blue from Constance Cumbey, who some of you may remember as the author of a splendidly paranoiac book called The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow (thesis: New Agers are Tunnelling Under Your House!!!). Anyway Ms. Cumbey writes me with these helpful prophetic diagnoses of just what’s the matter with me:
Message 1: “Measure the sanctuary and those that worship therein, but the outer court leave out, for it is given over to the gentiles for a time, times, and half a time.” You are clearly part of the outer court, in a very bad disguise, as a CATCHECHISM ON MODERNISM based on Pope Pius X’s encyclical would say. May the Lord have mercy on your soul. Woe to him who calls evil good and good evil . . .”
and Message 2 (written in response to my enjoyment of Harry Potter): “EXHIBIT A TO MY PREVIOUS POSTING! DON’T CARE WHAT FR. FLEETWOOD (MAYBE BETTER KNOWN AS FR. ENEMA SAYS ABOUT IT), HARRY POTTER IS NOTHING SHORT OF A MASS INITIATION EXPERIENCE FOR LITTLE CHILDREN. MAYBE BETTER THAT A MILLSTONE BE PUT AROUND ALL OF YOUR NECKS!!!!!!!!!!!”
I surely do appreciate the prayers, Ms. Cumbey, and will strive to see that the Lord’s mercy to me is not in vain.
