Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Well, it seems so far that the Vatican is simply going to try and brazen this thing out.  Devil at work within our walls? What devil? Debauchery and cover-up?  Never heard of ’em.  Anyway, you should be concerning yourselves with higher matters.  Oh, look over there – it’s the plastic litter crisis! Aiiiiieee!!!

Meanwhile, it looks as if the MSM has found its talking points. When the issue was strictly pedophilia, they were all over HMC (and rightly so, don’t get me wrong). But here, where the issue predatory sodomy of young men?  Why, we who cry out in rage and grief are nothing but a pack of right-wing, homophobic, whacko-birds who are trying to “pounce” on the issue to get at Frankie because of politicks or racism or something.  We’re the ones who ought to be ashamed!

Jesus wept.

I carry a Vatican flag magnet on my bumper.  In the past few days, I’ve wondered whether I ought to take it off.  But I came to the conclusion that I absolutely should not.  HMC is the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is her Head, not the Pope, nor any of the debased cardinals and bishops involved in this thing.  She’s also my church, as I am a part (granted, a very tiny, feeble, part) of her body.  And I’ll be damned if I let the devil and his spawn drive me out of her. Christ promised she would endure, and I’m going to nail my faith to the mast and believe that promise.

So, there.

And speaking of Christ being the head of the Church, I smiled this week when I came across this quote from Hilaire Belloc:

“The Catholic Church is an institution I am bound to hold divine – but for unbelievers a proof of its divinity might be found in the fact that no merely human institution conducted with such knavish imbecility would have lasted a fortnight.”

Things can’t stand as they presently are, and I can’t believe some people think the issues are just going to go away if enough obfuscation, misdirection, and silence is applied.  It’s probably going to hurt like hell, but one way or another I believe we will come out stronger in the end.
