    People have the option to attend either form of the Mass. Why is there a need by some to condemn the other form of the Mass?

  • Tom McDonald

    Love the clip, but he’s just the Doctor; Doctor Who isn’t his name but the name of the show.

      Doctor Who must be destroyed: He’s been called Doctor Who on the show itself.

      Calling him “The Doctor” or “Doctor Who” is both acceptable. Just like Latin or English is acceptable for the Liturgy.

    • I thought the name of the Tenth Doctor was John Smith, of Smith & Jones.

      • Andy, Bad Person

        He uses that as an alias pretty regularly.

      I assumed Mark meant “This show, Doctor Who,” not “This person, Doctor Who.” Sort of like if he said “Star Trek comments” instead of “Captain Kirk comments.”

    I agree with Will. Same for communion in the hand. Both methods are acceptable why do we have to be critical of those who choose one way over the other.

    The answer is: we don’t. But we live in an era of increasing touchiness, not just here but in all sorts of milieux.

    On a side note, the Weeping Angels are much scarier than the Daleks or Cybermen. They freak me out.

      Just be grateful they don’t have a race of evil garden gnomes or clowns (or Goddess forbid, MIMES (deep shudder) as the Doctor’s main enemies!

    Some of us have to think about the minutiae of the Mass for a living. Obviously, like your (great) example of eye doctors, some people have to think about it.

    What we have now is a huge crowd who read something about cataracts on WebMD and are trying to diagnose it everywhere.

    I’m just going to throw out my roundly-ignored but brilliant casting suggestion for the new Doctor. Jason Statham. I’ve been a loyal fan since the 70s. I don’t think I’m asking too much to see ONE Dalek flogged with a hurling bat!
