What’s so annoying about this is that the priests no doubt view themselves as “takin’ it to the streets”, “givin’ the Mass back to the People” and all those other slang phrases which involve takin’ the letter “g” off [Read More...]

Mayor Keating of Potemkinville* Resigning Head of Toothless Meaningless National Review Board bagged after complaining about ecclesial stonewalling.
