Missing: The USCCB Health Care Flyer. But GloboWarming, Yes!!

One west-suburban parish seems to have its signals crossed.

Instead of the USCCB's mandated bulletin-insert flyer drawing attention to the ObamaCare tax-paid abortion/no conscience-clause monstrosity, the parish handed out a bulletin-insert about "Global Warming," which (natch) didn't bother to mention the flat-line temps since 1998.

'S OK. The GloboHot document also took liberties with the translation of Gen. 9:16. (Surprised?)

Here's their "translation": "As the bow appears in the clouds I will see it and recall....that I have established between God and all living beings--all mortal creatures that are on earth......"

Umnnnnnnhhh. What does Douay say?

"...that was made between God and every living soul of all flesh which is upon the earth."

Well, Douay's kinda old. What about the RSV?

"...the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth."

You can flip through several different translations and NOT find the "translation" provided by the OSF who wrote the piece for St Anthony Messenger. The mangling is there for a purpose; to confuse people about the "brotherhood" between man and chipmunk. Oh, yah.

In that parish, abortion isn't quite as important as chipmunk-brotherhood.

Priorities, folks.

Disgusted, yes.
Surprized, no.

Oh yeah - I forgot about the bulletin insert. Missing in action here, too. And I had even mentioned it to my pastor a few days ago. Do you know when they were sent out from the USCCB?

At least we didn't get any chipmunk love. Which is a good thing 'cause I would have blown a gasket!

Available for download (PDF) and printing last Thursday.

Nope, nothing out here in the rural countryside either. But we did get an invitation to a wine tasting!

In vino...what?

Oh - you were expecting my computer illiterate parish to actually download and print something?? Ummmmmmmmm - I don't think so!

Our pastor is so anti-computer that he won't even read his own emails. Why? I have no idea. I have suspicions but I'll keep them to myself.
