The great thing about being Catholic…

…is the range to which you can expand your demented paranoia.  Forget about trivial “Who killed JFK?” conspiracy theories.  Being Catholic means having an entire cosmos in which to allow the mind to shut itself into the clean, cramped, well-lit prison cell of a single idea:

  • Stu

    Tom Horn and Cris Putnam are anti-Catholic protestants.

  • TheRealAaron

    Just so no one gets the wrong impression of Br. Guy Consolmagno, here is his response to this show: http://brotherguy.livejournal.com/74394.html

    Based on the way the speaker mangled Br. Guy’s name, I suspect the authors didn’t do much research beyond “he’s an astronomer for the Vatican.”

    I have just read the article linked to by TheRealAaron, below. (http://brotherguy.livejournal.com/74394.html) and extracted the two following quotes:
    “About a year ago, an author (whom I will not name or link to) conducted an extensive
    interview with me by email. I thought he was a legitimate journalist. However, seeing the ways in which he has twisted, misquoted, and invented utter falsehoods from the things I said, I have come to suspect that he is either a knave or a fool.”
    “There are no Vatican secrets about UFOs. Neither I nor anyone I know has any evidence that extraterrestrials exist. We do not believe that “Jesus is a hybrid” or any of the other bizarre claims that this author makes. He is either seriously deluded, or a
    deliberate con-man.”
    Last night, I had watched part of the video, and in fact got the feeling, just from the look of the 3 speakers, that they seemed strange, to say the least…
    In addition, when someone starts claiming that Jesus might be the son from some kind of alien “overcoming” Mary, this no longer sounds “Protestant” to me. It seems to me that sincere Protestants, Evangelists and others of similar traditions still believe in the divinity of Christ, otherwise they no longer would be Christian at all. Therefore I would go even farther than Stu naming two of those people as anti-Catholic protestants; they are anti-Catholic, period.
    I found the video scary, but not because of the fixation on UFO and end-of-the world theories…

    Oh dear. They think that the Bolshvik revolution resulted in 200,000,000 *Catholic* apostates?? Uh, no. Trying to make the distinction between Orthodox and Roman Catholic would be a little over their little heads, as would pointing out how many martyrs were in Communist lands for decades. Not everyone stopped believing. But that would interfere with their idea about these “prophecies”. Can’t get too complicated with actual history.

    I think Sid Roth is sincere and I like to watch his show from time to time, but I haven’t mustered the courage to watch that episode.

    Sid once said, to gasps and boos, that some Catholics were instrumental in his conversion. I wish he would have spent a little more time with them. I don’t know much about Tom Horn or Cris Putnam but their ideas are right out there with L.R. Hubbard’s

    That was delightfully batshit-crazy. They make Erich Von Däniken look like a scholar.

  • Cypressclimber

    The music during the commercial is awesome.

    “He officially resigned at the end of March 2012 … he made it official in 2013…”
    His official resignation was made official? Good. Thanks for clearing that up.
