About Me

A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Buttchewing in the confessional...

Last week I went to another parish to participate in a prayer vigil outside an abortion clinic. Along with that there was a Latin Mass with Confession being heard prior to it's start. Being early, I was first into the booth.

Things went downhill from there.

The priest hearing Confession must have missed his coffee. Man, I haven't had my ass chewed like that since I was a kid! He laid into yours truly, letting me know where my little quirks and peccadilloes would take me if I didn't wise up ASAP. Halfway through he paused long enough to say, "I don't know how to be diplomatic about this."

To which I replied, "Father, I didn't come here for diplomacy." Which proves that some people really don't know when to keep their mouths shut.

He then took a deep breath and continued on with his critique of my spiritual life. By the time he was finished I felt like a schoolboy caught sneaking into the local stripper bar.


Well, at least I was able to take Communion. Found out later that he was just visiting the parish for the purpose of attending the prayer vigil.

Too bad, if he was a regular I'd start going to him for Confession on a regular basis.

Yes, that's the typical warped thinking of a Catholic. Shoot me.

I must share your masochism, because I appreciate a good spiritual direction butt-chewing. (Note I didn't say "enjoy").

Masochism for the soul. Hmmm, Is that a bad thing? Subvet how did you ever survive in the service? First thing I learned was keep my mouth shut and don't volunteer anything.

I kinda think that would be a good thing for me as well.

Lucky for me, I have a SD who isn't afraid to tell me when I've gon off the rails!
