NSFW: Contains links to boring lectures, which are infused with audible profanity. One of them also contains adult images. (Trust me, you don’t want to see this old ho’s cleavage.)

You can find this feminist Christian priestess here. Skank ho tatts are a fitting touch.

  1. That’s why I’m not a Protestant. The don’t even follow Sola Scriptura anymore after letting wimminz be priestess.

    1. If they don’t follow Sola Scriptura then they aren’t Protestant. We’re defined by our behavior instead of our membership.

      Granted, Protestantism is a lonely road right now.

  2. However you have mentioned before you’ve gone to vigil Mass. What’s stopping you from becoming Catholic?

    1. However you have mentioned before you’ve gone to vigil Mass. What’s stopping you from becoming Catholic?

      I go to the same (Sat. evening vigil) mass at the same place, two or three times a month. I’m also a donor and a participant in some of the fundraisers. I’ve done this for three years, now. The people there probably assume I’m a Catholic who doesn’t like confession or holy communion.

      What stops me is the poor example set by Christians on places like Dalrock, as well as the poor example set by about half the other priests I’ve listened to, who seem to be radical feminists wearing clerical robes.

      At some point, the old boy who says the mass at my cathedral will either move, die, or take up golf, and at that time, I’ll probably quit going. Until then, the aesthetics appeal to me, and it’s nice to go to a place where a man speaks the truth.

      1. This answer is beneath you. You’re one of the most intelligent contributors to the ‘sphere and your response to a devout Catholic’s question of what prevents you from accepting the faith is “Other people are dicks?”

        No; if you accepted the theology, you would be Catholic. It would be the only reasonable, intelligent thing to do, and you are reasonable and intelligent. Either you don’t accept the theology, or you do, but something huge is standing in the way of a public proclamation – like maybe a fundamentalist Mormon family and heritage.

        Fwiw, I’ve always figured you for an agnostic atheist.

      2. ‘What stops me is the poor example set by Christians on places like Dalrock, as well as the poor example set by about half the other priests I’ve listened to, who seem to be radical feminists wearing clerical robes.’

        I’d agree if they are following the gospel of feminism they are poor examples because they are poor examples of Christ. The Gospel of Christ, I’d recommend reading and seeing how often he attributes everything to the Father. It’s very eye opening…and He calls out the other group as to who their father is.

        ‘Until then, the aesthetics appeal to me, and it’s nice to go to a place where a man speaks the truth.’

        Sounds like you should be aware of this statement from Bishop Fulton Sheen…

        ‘Judge the Catholic church not by those who barely live by its spirit, but by the example of those who live closest to it.

      3. Even if Boxer is an agnostic atheist…he is seeking truth. Every man no matter how devout or not has this desire in the heart.

      4. What does the acts of men how to do with Jesus? Pussies are the same as Christian men. Read ascts and Paul letters

      I’m pretty sure you’re overestimating my cognitive ability; but, yeah. If I were to pledge allegiance to an organization, then I’d be making a lifetime commitment to that organization.

      When I first wandered into this cathedral, I got very, very lucky. I certainly realize that, now. If every priest were like this guy who says the mass for me, then I’d have less of a problem with it.

      No; if you accepted the theology, you would be Catholic. It would be the only reasonable, intelligent thing to do, and you are reasonable and intelligent. Either you don’t accept the theology, or you do, but something huge is standing in the way of a public proclamation – like maybe a fundamentalist Mormon family and heritage.

      That’s certainly part of it, though probably not in the way that you assume. I don’t have too much of a hangup about the polytheistic trappings of Catholicism; and I’m already going to Hell, by all the standards of the Mormon god.

      I do think that fidelity to the ideal of God and the discipline are important. I could probably convert (I’ve never had an abortion or been divorced) but I couldn’t do so in good faith, given my lifestyle. Would I really benefit by swearing to reject Satan and all his works, knowing that the next weekend I’ll be banging some new ho’?

      With all this in mind, why would I swear allegiance to an organization that I probably won’t be faithful to, and to which I know I’ll disappoint?

      Either way I approved it as soon as I got the notification, so you should be good with either address.

      1. Thank you for such an in-depth answer, but it’s above and beyond what I was getting at.

        Simply put, if you were really able to internalize Catholic doctrine and accept it as true, wouldn’t you, as a rational person, try to give up your vices? It just seems like it would naturally follow since the alternative is choosing hell, and you don’t seem the type to make that choice, much less allow the example set by others on places like Dalrock to make it for you. Of course you would fail at your newfound commitment to clean living, but that all fail and are called to seek forgiveness over and over is built into the system. Or, do you take more of the view that it doesn’t really matter what you believe to be true about the basic teachings of a religion (one God, Jesus his son, crucifixion and resurrection, etc) as long as you are in line with the external manifestations and can commit to living the lifestyle?

        The Church doesn’t consider conversion to be a commitment to the organization in terms of the people who make it up, rather a commitment to the teachings of the Church founded by Christ. Yours is a more Protestant view, and I would assume Mormon too, given the LDS emphasis on community.

        As an aside, I assumed your heritage may play more of a role in terms of not being free to claim what is essentially an opposition faith to your family if you want to maintain close bonds.

        I’m not Catholic and have no horse in this one, I was just very curious about your answer to Earl because it seemed uncharacteristically shallow. Maybe you should do a full post about your view of religion and it’s role in personal and public life. Your informative posts are your best.

      2. I know something of your history, and you know something of mine. Mich is right, the answer is beneath you. No one really cares about what you’re doing now. I have every confidence you could change your lifestyle if you wanted to.

        You don’t have to wear your faith on your sleeve—you don’t owe that to anyone, least of all us—but you do owe it to yourself to take religion seriously, whatever you conclude. Maybe you never conclude anything and die an agnostic, but do so as one who’s tried.

        Maybe you are trying, and are covering that position of weakness (I mean…no one likes being uncertain about something, and certainly not publicly so) by avoiding the issue publicly. In which case, carry on.

        Everyone here is on your side, anyway. You know that.

  4. Dear SPD:

    Please see inside text…

    I know something of your history, and you know something of mine. Mich is right, the answer is beneath you. No one really cares about what you’re doing now. I have every confidence you could change your lifestyle if you wanted to.

    Part of a healthy masculinity is knowing and appreciating one’s own weaknesses, and with respect, I think I know myself better than you.

    You don’t have to wear your faith on your sleeve—you don’t owe that to anyone, least of all us—but you do owe it to yourself to take religion seriously, whatever you conclude. Maybe you never conclude anything and die an agnostic, but do so as one who’s tried.

    This sounds like a man-up lecture. Various family members (well-meaning, to be sure) regularly tell me I ought to get married and have a couple of kids, and if the bitch decides to flush it all down the toilet, well, so what? At least you’ll know you’ve tried.

    I’m not LDS, Community of Christ, or a member of any other religious organization, but I do retain some Mormon traits that are at odds with the Christian interpretation. Example: if there is a God, I’m pretty sure he cares more about what I do, than about what I say. That’s at odds with Christianity, to be sure. God probably doesn’t mind my attendance at mass. Before I moved here, I prayed in a mosque. He didn’t mind that either, despite the fact that I didn’t convert to that religion, in the two plus years I was hanging out with them.

    I can’t do everything he wants me to do, but I can do some things, and prayer helps keep me focused on the things that I can do. For me, Christianity is a practical approach to a discipline, rather than an identity that I can put on, or a membership card I can pick up.

    Best,
