It’s the Babatists vs. the Catholics this week.
Sisterhood. I daresay that there is no finer, devout Babatist woman than myself. Perhaps no fine Christian, but let’s not split hairs. Still, there is one woman in whose presence I stand amazed. Evangelical Babatist, Christian and Bible teacher, Sister Beth Moore. Her ministry has touched women the world over. However, last week, Sister Moore proclaimed, “I am still a Baptist, but I can no longer identify with Southern Baptists” (her spelling, not mine). This is significant, Brothers and Sisters. Sister Moore has reached her limit with the Southern Babatist’s fervor for former President I-Can’t-Say-His-Name and his vulgar attitude towards women. Clearly, we women of faith have had enough. I stand proudly behind Sister Moore and raise my banner of support. Let us march forward towards the pulpits which have been soiled by the sins of old white men. Hallelujah!
Sin. Let us, this week, focus our attention on the word IRONY. I’m ever amazed by the current Pope’s efforts to shatter old Catholic dogma. However, proving that he has limits, Sister Francis laid out an edict this week that “The Catholic Church and its priests cannot bless same-sex unions because God cannot bless sin.” Let us pause for reflection. To quote Sister Alanis Morissette, “Isn’t It Ironic?” The legion of priests within the big CC who have committed heinous crimes against young male parishioners for many years and who have been subsequently protected for their crimes have apparently been able to have their sin “blessed.” So why this focus on sodomite marriage, a subject which concerns me but is clearly a matter between ADULTS? I find this ironic edict just another reason why I stand firm in my belief that Catholics are going to hell. Alleluia.
Shelter. In a related story showing Christian compassion, the Dallas Convention Center has been rented out by FEMA as a place to “shelter teenage boys who arrived at the US-Mexico border alone . . . to help relieve the overcrowding currently at the border.” There has been no comment from the Diocese of Dallas.
