Today’s Question: Did Jesus have ASPD – Anti Social Personality Disorder?


Today’s Question:
Did Jesus have ASPD – Anti Social Personality Disorder?

Jesus of the bible is a lot different from Jesus of popular conception. In Genesis 19 he tells Abraham there is no way to save Sodom…it had to be fire bombed.

When he saw people selling merchandise in the temple…he beat the merchants out with a whip.

When he found a tree without fruit on it…he cursed it causing it to die instantly.

When a woman asked him for healing…he called her a worthless dog (no matter what rationalizations you make up for that, he simply called her an *unworthy dog).

When he gave a teaching on how you should handle sexual temptations…he said pluck your eyes out if you can’t resist looking at pornography.

When an apostle asked a question amiss, his attitude instantly changed and he replied, ‘You wicked and foolish person’ (paraphrase).

Some features of people with ASPD are impulsiveness, irritability, ingeniousness (if IQ >130), early death, and overall a focus on the essentials of life.

For the character of Jesus, he focused on the fundamentals of what he considered the purpose of life that he unironically advocated for extremism.

Answer: Please make sure you remember to tell Jesus all of that, come Judgment Day. I’ll be watching. Can’t wait!

This Easter, send your bishop a video of you placing money in the collection basket.

Virtual Mass. Virtual offering.

Fair and just!

And if things ever get back to normal:
A dollar a week, until they squeak!

Then, watch all the low-lifes, perverts, thieves, heretics and idolaters run,
like the devil!

A shout out to Father VF for the idea

Dystopian musings – part one: Gold vs. Toilet Paper

Dystopian (definitions courtesy of Google)
adjective
  1. relating to or denoting an imagined state or society where there is great suffering or injustice.
    “the dystopian future of a society bereft of reason”
    noun
    1. a person who imagines or foresees a state or society where there is great suffering or injustice.
      “a lot of things those dystopians feared did not come true”

How did all the “Gold Bug Dystopians” totally miss the fact that TOILET PAPER – rather than GOLD – would prove to be the universal medium of barter and exchange during these strange times?

Today’s question: What you do not like about the Catholics?

Question: What you do not like about the Catholics?

Answer: Catholics are the spoiled, rich kids of the Christian faith, on whom God has always lavished his inestimable love, sanctifying grace, awesome power and tender mercies.

God provides Catholics with a wide array of extraordinarily effective, spiritual “tools” with which Catholics might act to secure their eternal salvation, in Jesus Christ.

Jesus also never fails to appear on every altar, in every Catholic Church, all around the world, every hour of every day, every day of every year, at Holy Mass, so that Catholics might (through him, with him, in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, while giving great honor and glory to God the Father) faithfully renew the divine promise of Jesus’ one time, once for all, perfect and atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world.

It’s just not fair! Not fair, I tell you!

Question: Is there any mention of flatulence in the bible?

Answer: Not sure exactly what this was referring to, but it was certainly noteworthy: Job 1:19 A violent wind came on all of a sudden from the side of the desert, and shook the four corners of the house, and it fell upon thy children, and they are dead…

Catholic comedian Jim Gaffigan’s reflections on Pope Francis and the papacy

NewPope

It would be great if you had a kid that ended up being Pope. That would be the ultimate bragging rights! “Oh you’re son’s a doctor? Ours is Pope. Oh, yours has a nice house. Our son has his own city. It’s in Europe.”

It would have been weird to go to high school with the Pope. Somebody did! Somebody was sitting at home in Argentina watching TV: “Wait a minute — THAT GUY is Pope?”

It’s not easy being a Catholic today in America. It’s a little like being a Cubs fan for the last hundred years. Love the team, not crazy about some of the management we’ve had.

Controversial Colorado abortion bill (surprisingly) dead on arrival

Pro-lifers mobilized in less than a week to pray for the defeat of the destructive bill that threatened to create unfettered access to abortion and undo life-affirming laws in Colorado.

Faith-filled citizens inundated state senators with phone calls, emails and personal requests to vote down the bill in support of mothers and for the protection of the unborn.

Jenny Kraska of the Colorado Catholic Conference said this night, April 16, is proof that Catholics can make a difference.

“Whenever someone says that we can’t make a difference, just remember this night, just remember this bill,” she said.

The Senate moved to lay over the bill until May 8, one day after the legislative session is scheduled to end on May 7. This effectively killed the bill, and the Senate will not vote on it.
