Catholic politicians who publicly support abortion or homosexual marriage and then seek to turn away from such “gravely sinful acts” must perform “public” actions of “repentance,” said Raymond Burke, the archbishop emeritus of St. Louis and the current head of the highest court at the Vatican, the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura.

"Sounds a bit kinky," says MadPriest, truck driver emeritus of Newcastle and supreme head of his own stationary cupboard, but not much else.


BURKLEY HUNT — 9 Comments

  1. You know…he bears a striking resemblance to the baby-eating bishop of Bath and Wells. There’s a wonderful painting of him about here some…er, never mind. That’s NSFM (not safe for mass).

  2. C’mon, former altar boys. I know the memory of Burke is terrifying, but you’re men now. You survived. Come forward, and speak up!

    If your other cupboards are shifting around I can understand why you feel the need to exert your authority in this way. My thought is check to see who is hiding behind them. Chances are good it is that evil witch out of Narnia and her cohorts.

  4. Now, now, Cathy. Me and Mimi are trying to be polite to each other at the moment. But, yes, I guess she would be the number one suspect. Of course, I would definitely include you in her cohort.

  5. I shall wear the mantle of “Mimi’s cohort” with pride. However, I really think it is most unfair to suggest that we must be to blame if your cupboards are running amok and only one is willing to accept you as supreme head. It can only be your fault that your furniture is revolting.

  6. Hang on! It was you who suggested the “evil witch out of Narnia and her cohorts” in the first place. Don’t you go blaming me, woman!

  7. That’s true. But then your cupboards would not be consorting with shady ladies and other persons of ill repute if you had not set them a turpitudinous example to start with. So, it’s still your fault.
