Fortnight for Freedom Photos

Elizabeth Tenety at the WaPo asked readers to send photos of their experience of the “Fortnight for Freedom”. Some interesting pics.

Brandon Vogt submitted a picture of himself — outfitted in the foamy fingers for freedom — taken at the recent Catholic Media Conference:

    Oh gosh. I hope future employers never come across this….

    Speaking of Peter and his adversaries, I was reminded of “A Tale Of A Tub”. Have you read that? I don’t think you’d align with its views, and it’s not always easy to discern what it’s trying to say (especially for someone like me who doesn’t always do satire, especially if very subtle) but still of interest? :)

    Hmmm, “Tale”, as I recall, is a satire aboutinter- religious disputes.

    I don’t really see that it’s particularly germane to this post, or Fortnight for Freedom.

    (Myself, I always preferred Swift’s “A Modest Proposal”.)

    Brandon, an employer who wouldn’t hire you because of this picture—wouldn’t be worth working for, anyway!

    “no merely human institution run with such knavish imbecility would have lasted a fortnight.”

    And why can’t “IT be may “I” ask in this twenty-first century with the help of alien gods who control so many human peters nowadays?

    I hear ya! What’s your point sinner vic? :)

    Another possible post/question for consideration: which dioceses/parishes are silent about the Fortnight for Freedom. So far, my parish, in the Diocese of Albany/NY, has done and is doing nothing. Not even a mention. The congregation seems left of center and the diocese has a serious priest shortage. Any connection between the two? Just food for thought.
