AGGRAVATING AGGREGATION



What man does is the externalization of what he is.

- Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, Preface to Religion





Still working on that post mentioned in my fake Twitter feed... So in the meantime find below ten bullets on some current delusions and perversions concomitant with the decline of civilization:
  • VP Joe Biden on the economy: "No doubt we're moving in the right direction". (Aug 25/10) LINK
  • NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg on the Ground Zero Mosque: "It is my hope that the mosque will help to bring our city even closer together". (Aug. 3/10) LINK
  • Bishop Armando X. Ochoa (El Paso, TX) on homosexuality and abortion: "As Church we want to journey with everyone as they search for meaning in their lives". (Aug. 22/10) LINK
  • Hugh Hefner on himself: "I consider myself - on a serious note - a very moral man". (2008 Time magazine video interview) LINK
  • Barack Obama on the definition of sin: "Being out of alignment with my values." (Nov. 11/08) LINK
  • Kim Kardashian on life: "I think I found my biggest fan! Kisses! RT @BurnhamBBzLuuvs @kimkardashian you are mentally retarded. just do us a favor and kill urself." (Aug. 25/10) 4,564,903 followers on Twitter as of 11:39 pm EDT on August 25, 2010 (increasing rapidly by the minute). LINK
  • Isaac Larian (CEO of MGA Entertainment) on the success of sexualizing children: "We are proud to be celebrating 10 years of success with Bratz, our #1 girls' lifestyle brand. We will continue the celebration with a mix of new products not only in this milestone year, but well into the next decade and beyond." (August 2010) LINK
  • British Government on Titles: "Head of Behaviour Change, Ministry of Transport, Bicycle Division." (Aug. 24/10) LINK
  • Michael Dowd (United Church of Christ evangelist) on God: "When I say 'God', I'm not talking about something or someone that can be believed in or not believed in. I'm talking about the Ultimate Wholeness of Reality, seen and unseen - the whole shebang - which is infinitely more than anything we can know, think, or imagine." (Aug. 10/10) LINK
  • General Secretary Kim Jong Il (North Korea) on chicken farms: "Thanks to unprecedented great innovations and great leap forward taking place in the country at present the long-cherished ideal is becoming a reality." (as reported, Aug. 24/10). LINK
ANALYSIS: "It is the characteristic of any decaying civilization that the great masses of people are unconscious of the tragedy. Humanity in a crisis is generally insensitive to the gravity of the times in which it lives. Men do not want to believe their own times are wicked, partly because it involves too much self-accusation and principally because they have no standards outside themselves by which to measure their times. If there is no fixed concept of justice how shall men know it is violated?"

Great roundup revealing some of the insanity, immorality, and moral relativism running rampant in our society today.

Man,...Bishop Sheen was bang on! We need to do prayer and penance!

Flashback: 1957.

Uncle: So, Johnny boy, what do you want to be when you grow up?

Johnny boy, age 6: I wanna be the Head of Behaviour Change, Ministry of Transport, Bicycle Division!

And Fulton J. Sheen is right on the mark, as always. Wouldn't be surprised if he turns out to be a future Doctor of the Church.

Teresa: I could have added more, but it would be more aggravating. Thanks for dropping in.

Marco: You said it, bud. I can also do more prayer and penance.

Anita....

Uncle: So, Kim, what do you want to be when you grow up?

Kim: I want to be a fashion designer, specifically of leisure suits, to kidnap actresses so as to make films, and to be the head of a Communist country.

Archbishop Sheen - Doctor of the Church, From Anita's lips to God's ears.

Bishop Armando X. Ochoa on the other hand, probably the biggest disappointment of the week.

OK on to some snarky, sarcastic remarks on some of the other quotes:
Hef - If he uses himself for the standard of morality, then he is right. Which means either he is senile or has totally bought into the lie he has been pushing for the past 55+ yrs.

Obama - Well if you see yourself as the Messiah, which he apparently does, then this would be true since his values are the ideal. (& the quote you had was only 1 of the many way out things he said in that interview.)

Dowd - Typical UCC drivel. UCC well on the way to becoming Unitarian light.

Biden - Proof he has more hairplugs than brain cells.

It would be nice to see Sheen made a Doctor of the church.
