The Bunny Song

The Bear imagines all the woodland creatures singing this song while doing the bunny hop.

Get on your bunny, honey, get on your bunny,
Get on  your bunny ears, your little  bunny tail.
'Cause we're gonna bunny 'til it ain't even funny,
You'll be my bunny mama, and I'll be your bunny male.

I want to kiss you on your rabbit nose, and kiss your little toes
Don't play hard to get because it's time to start the show.
Let's lie down in the clover, lover, see where it goes,
I'll be your thumper honey, and you can be my doe.

Chorus:

Now some say heed the word, that rabbits shouldn't breed,
There's too many bunnies honey, way more than we need.
But a rabbit's gotta do what God made the rabbits to,
So get your bunny on babe, and let's fill up that pew.

Pope Hoax

There's a report circulating that Pope Francis said some shocking things to "followers" Monday. According to "National Report," the Pope told an audience that, "Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah... are all names for an entity that is distinctly the same across the world." He went on to place the Bible on the same level as the Koran, and spoke of "merging our faiths."

Never happened, but that hasn't stopped message boards on the lunatic fringe from railing against Francis as "the antichrist."

Yes, the Bear is aware he is probably on the lunatic fringe for someone, but these people are out there.

While he's on the subject of the lunatic fringe, here's a bone for them.

Prophecies of St. Malachy. We should have "Peter the Roman" as pope, right? Is that post-feed-my-sheep Peter, or scattered-sheep-cock-crowing Peter? Could he be a "Peter" after all? He hasn't moved into a hotel in Buenos Aires yet, so he certainly is "Roman." Hmmm?

So get your news from reliable sources. The Bear is obviously not one of them.
“Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each others beliefs, for we are all children of God regardless of the name we choose to address him by. We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now. No longer shall we slaughter our neighbors over differences in reference to their God.” - See more at: http://nationalreport.net/pope-francis-followers-koran-holy-bible/#sthash.JyhxXswU.dpuf

Baldisseri: Francis Replaced Synod's Rejected Propositions



Until now we suspected, but, according an article in Lifesite News, Synod showrunner Cardinal Baldisseri has confirmed that Pope Francis personally approved publishing controversial propositions that had failed to get the required two-thirds majority vote.

“It was the Pope’s decision to include the points that did not receive the two-thirds majority,” he said.
“The Pope said: ‘These three points received an absolute majority. They were therefore not rejected with a ‘no,’ as they received more than 50 percent approval. They are therefore issues that still need to be developed. We as a Church want a consensus. These texts can be modified, that’s clear. Once there has been further reflection, they can be modified.”

Which presents the question: why have a two-thirds requirement to begin with if the Pope can waive it just because he wants to?

Cardinal Baldisseri revealed the mentality of Francis and his handpuppets:

He assured the 300 conference attendees that “there’s no reason to be scandalized that there is a cardinal or a theologian saying something that’s different than the so-called ‘common doctrine.’ This doesn’t imply a going against. It means reflecting. Because dogma has its own evolution; that is a development, not a change.”

If it were not so dangerous, Baldisseri's doublespeak would beg ridicule. (Why, say "evolution" and wave your hand and anything can happen!)

Bear in mind what dogma is. Dogma is unchangeable. It is not subject to "development" when some ecclesiastical grifters set up their shell game.  Dogma may be studied and even reformulated, if need be, but cannot be changed, even if "change" is called "development."

Perhaps if the Pope can entertain a genitally mutilated man calling himself a woman, he thinks he can mutilate the deposit of faith and call it "evolution."

Catholics are forced into an unpleasant hope: that the credibility of many of their fellow Catholics, from the lowliest Patheos blogger to the Pope himself, hemorrhage credibility in 2015. That sounds brutal, but the sooner no one takes these people seriously anymore, the better off the Church will be.

The Bear is hopeful that the Pope's encyclical on climate change will be flat-out crazy. Don't say it can't happen. Global warming is powerful hoodoo to even stable intellects. What it might bring out in an eccentric is anyone's guess.

The Emperor has no clothes. We've all said it. We need to keep saying it. Every rabbit counts.

See Rock City



Have you ever been to Rock City? It was the original "tourist trap," albeit a very nice one. If you had the good fortune to be a child the first time, it is forever lit with a magical nostalgia that draws you back. The Bear remembers going there, and, when he was a dad, took his children, too. One cannot help but meditate on how our time here is not long, as we fill the roles our parents filled. Anyway, the Bear wrote this song, called "See Rock City."

Lookout Mountain, here I go.
Not too fast, and not too slow.
Traveling down the highway,
Old US 51,
I look into the mirror and say
See what time has done.

Barns and signs they point the way,
Left over from a better day.
With faded paint they tell you
Rock City's number one,
And each abandoned motel says
See what time has done.

I traveled this way once before,
my Dad a man of thirty-four.
He put me on his shoulders,
said, see what time has done,
His strength was like the mountain,
Now see what time has done.

My wife is sitting at my side,
Behind me kids take in the ride,
We're going to Rock City
on US 51,
I see them in the mirror and smile
See what time has done.

CHORUS:

See Rock City,
See Rock City,
See Rock city,
One more time.
