HERETIC IN CHARGE OF WORLD’SLARGEST CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION

From ROME REPORTS:

Oooh! No, no, no, NO!

I'm a believer in guardian angels (although mine is off my Christmas list until she gets her act together), but this is 100% heresy. Why? Because Jesus would have kittens if he heard the successor of his main man, Peter, saying it.

  1. No problem there, colkoch. Perfectly sound. But I would suggest that the angel was sent to help out because the Lord is close to everyone without the necessity of intermediaries.

  2. Upon second thought, I have edited my thought, I believe not idly:

    I suppose there’s some small comfort in knowing that even the Spirit of God has become redundant.

  3. Help Wanted::

    Job Title: God

    Reports To: Pope

    Responsibilities: Keeps Baptists at bay, impregnates virgins, and takes blame for natural catastrophic events.

    Contact: B-16

    FWIW

  4. I believe that trolls are constitutionally unable to understand satire, which, of course, adds to their childlike charm, or not.

  5. I’m a believer in guardian angels (although mine is off my Christmas list until she gets her act together)

    As I believe angels are genderqueer like me, the appropriate pronoun is the neologism “ze”, or the plural-drafted-for-gender-neutral-use-singular “their”.

    [The “H” word that the troll is on about is heresy? I thought they only got hot&bothered by that *other* H word! O_o (Y’know, the one that makes trolls think about doing naughty things w/ their naughty bits)]

    @Chelliah: catholics (of any stripe, Roman or Anglo or Eastern) ask the BVM, or any other of the “cloud of witnesses” of the saints, to intercede simply as one would ask any friend to pray for you [Romans may put it in more flowery “Blessed Mary, Ever Virgin, Ark of the Covenant, Mystical Rose, Star of the Sea (etc etc ad nauseum!)” language, but the principle holds]

  6. I believe his words were:

    Cari amici, il Signore è sempre vicino e operante nella storia dell’umanità, e ci accompagna anche con la singolare presenza dei suoi Angeli, che oggi la Chiesa venera quali “Custodi”, cioè ministri della divina premura per ogni uomo.

    Now my Italian’s not too great, but, so far as I can understand it, that’s not too far from “the angel was sent to help out because the Lord is close to everyone.”

  7. Your Italian is obviously better than the pope’s own press department who better hope that the pope’s English isn’t that good.
