Preliminary attempts to spin Medjugorje Finding are Under Way

Here’s what we actually know: Two local ordinaries have said there is no reason to think that anything supernatural has occurred there. The spiritual director of the frauds got a nun pregnant. None of the frauds has entered religious life, a number of them have gotten stinking rich. Their dog and pony show has been [Read More…]

The Ents of Rome…

may be swinging into action on Medjugorje sometime within the next 1000 years. Bear in mind that this is the bureaucracy that took until 2009 to come to a (tentative) judgment about the John Lennon’s art and smart mouth. So there could be years of hooming and homming about Medjugorje yet. I rather like that. [Read More…]

Time Wasted on the Medjugorje Fraud…

Stick with those. Things are not going to end well for the Medjugorje fraud. So instead of yet another massive exercise [Read More…]

Medjugorje is a fraud (doo dah! doo dah!).

No. Seriously. Go here for somebody who has done their homework. And stick with what the local bishop says: Bishop Peric: From his homily in 2006 at the Church in Medjugorje: “Therefore I responsibly call upon those who claim themselves to be “seers”, as well as those persons behind the “messages”, to demonstrate ecclesiastical obedience [Read More…]
