People I can do without, who never would be missed

People who email me crap like this, for instance:

Pathological altruism* probably occurs more in white females, as autism occurs more in white males.  Nonetheless, I’ve noticed for a long time many religious fundamentalist males tend to be beta male pathological altruists.  You can just tell by looking at them; they have that effeminate, dopey look.  But instead of dreading their affliction, they tend to promote it with a tacky self-righteousness.

Exhibit A:

Pathological altruist Sam Brownback thinks that white people should forsake their own inclusive fitness (not have white babies) and instead adopt Chinese girls and that and white South Africans, well, they should just die:

This is the world we live in, folks!

When I told this racist jerk to buzz off, he declared me a “libtard”.  Class with a capital KKK.

Meanwhile, a member of the Cult of Voris writes to deliver his diagnosis of my true motivations and character in noting that Voris sows the seed of factionalism wherever he goes and surrounds himself with a cult of personality that habitually attacks faithful Catholics (Vigneron, Mulvey, the Knights of Columbus, Fisher, people who take communion in the hand, EWTN, The Register, CNA) and insinuate or outright says they are enemies of the Faith:

I am left to assume you are fighting a right to life Catholic because you are a socialist who has confused Jesus’ teaching with big government handouts.

O Reader, speak no more: 
Thou turn’st mine eyes into my very soul; 
And there I see such black and grained spots 
As will not leave their tinct.

Honestly, I did not pay the reader to write me in order to illustrate my point.  He thought it all up himself.

    Let me get this straight: a racist who likes to pass judgment on others whom he deems developmentally deficient calls you a “libtard”? Seriously?

    This is the world we live in, folks!

    ((Sigh)) You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried. Praying for you, Mark.

    Well, although conflict is, from a purely objective standpoint, not a good thing, at least you know you stir people up (even the ones who are not very bright (or at least write that way))! It would be a shame to realize, “I never had an impact on anyone.” Sometimes when people attack you it proves that you are doing something right.

    I just want to give a shout out for the reference to The Mikado. We need more light opera in this world.

      You beat me to it, Katie. So I’m reduced to posting a link to the Grand Poobah’s patter aria:

        I’m so embarrassed! It wasn’t the Poo-Bah, it was Ko-Ko.
        I don’t imagine I’d be missed, then… :)

          Just beware Katisha!

    Wow, Mark. . .you are much, much nicer than I’d ever be. My years in lib arts grad school gave me a thick skin AND a sharp tongue. But you suffer fools more gladly than I ever could.

    I’ve suggested that the Church (at least in the United States) should encourage dioceses and parishes to have classes on Vatican II and educate Catholics on the weight carried by a dogmatic Constitution like Lumen Gentium and documents like Dei Verbum and Gaudium et Spes. Immersing myself in Vatican II and especially reading Ratzinger’s theological reflections on the Council has helped greatly to put this whole right-left thing in perspective, for myself at least.

    A good rule of thumb is that none of us can ever claim to be holier than the Church. Docility toward our shepherds is essential to growing in the faith. There is a time and place to express disagreement, but those who make a career out of it are not edifying anyone.

      I was a “Vatican II Killed The Church” kind of guy until I actually read some of the documents and commentaries on it and have since changed my position.

      Vatican II did not kill the Church, but a whole lot of bad people implemented it…hence this whole “spirit of Vatican II” crap we’ve had to endure…

      • Confederate Papist

        As I told a young man this past weekend, it took almost 50 years to get to this point, it’s going to take that long to make things the way Vatican II originally intended…an aircraft carrier doesn’t turn on a dime..

          I think it may take longer than that. Poor catechism has become entrenched in family lines, and the main stream media is working against us, paraphrasing, misquoting, and twisting anything the pope or our bishops say in order to tarnish the Church’s public image, which is unfortunately all less active and poorly catechized Catholics are ever likely to see of their Church in the news. Meanwhile, Voris and his ilk happily chip away at the reputations of those who are desperately working to pull the other way.

    Such is the culture of narcissism.
