Christmas Shows on TV – 2015
What struck me as weird as I watched the first few minutes of the midnight at Christmas mass at the Vatican was that 90% of the faithful were snapping pics of the very long procession of deadweight bishops, cardinals and of course Pope Francis. In my day such a procession would have produced a lot of crossing of one’s self and return to kneeling after a blessing of holy water.
They had some green Hispanic priest narrating or I should say reading boiler plate propaganda and in a few phrases of Spanish as the pope seemed to have to smoke the immense altar at St. Peter’s, smiting evil spirits to go away – quite ironic in the presense of the hundreds of bishops and cardinals in the front row – you know evil spirits and all that. The whole thing a contractual NBC/USCCB production of liberal eastern media reinforcing the party line of rule of elites in the United States.
Then I watched a few minutes of that drunk Timothy Dolan do his Ralph Kramden common vulgar man imitation in yellow robes, floating through the newly refurbished 180 million dollar St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Would have been cheaper to tear it down and rebuild it right instead of every 20-30 years trying to reinforce the inferior stone inside and outside, supplied by Tammany Hall btw, and spend more tens of millions to clean the architectural mess that only is made to look like a true gothic cathedral - illusion, delusion(?).
And of course, once off the ground at arm's length inside St. Patrick’s, the real stone disappears and the plaster and paint over chicken wire surfaces mask the inferior workmanship of a large parish church being used as the seat of the very large evil fat-assed archbishop who would rather spend large volumes of money on cathedrals than keep parishes open for the faithful. ...
