American Bishop Freak Show Continues!

Low-class show; Bear never approved.

From the freak show known as the Catholic Church in America comes more bizarre lies from a bishop. Step right up, ladies and gentleman, and be chilled and thrilled by a medical mystery: The Brainless Wonder, Florida Bishop Robert Lynch. Hear him say amazing things like:

"...when I saw the Imam come forward at a press conference yesterday morning, I knew that somewhere in the story there would be a search to find religious roots. While deranged people do senseless things..."

You'll need to see Julie at  Connecticut Catholic Corner to see the whole show. The Bear is just a hawker here. One shiny quarter for a sight that will haunt you the rest of your life.

But at least the narrative of the mentally ill shooter is cohering. Cupich prefers "mentally unstable," while Lynch opts for the more sensational "deranged people do senseless things." Nice, guys.

Just another bipolar who thought his Cheerios tasted stale that morning and went out and shot up a nightclub. Happens all the time.

The Bear will be delaying his return to America indefinitely. The Cathedral of Christ the Savior, not far from the Kremlin, is very impressive. Whenever America regains a sense of reality, the Bear will return. In the meantime, Misha is enjoying the hospitality of the Russian people.

Really. This is best for everyone.

Come on over, Red Death, and bring the twins. Your Bear is getting a nice dacha on the outskirts of Moscow. There is even room for goats.

  1. Mr. Bear. Evidently you don't realize that Christians, especially Catholic Christians are responsible for all the madness in the world. Cupich and Lynch have it exactly right and Pope Francis, Obama and Hillary, too. They all get it. It is the requirement to harness the sexual impulse that drives folks crazy and the Catholic Church is responsible for this idea. This nice Muslim man was driven to his action by his misguided belief that sodomy is wrong. And who is responsible for this? Yes, you got it. Traditional Catholic doctrine. It's time to get with the program Bear and loosen up like most of our evolved spiritual and political leaders.

    1. Just wait. Everybody's going to be with the Bear's program. It may take another 1300 years, but it will happen. The Bear hasn't decided if he is done with Cupich yet.

  2. I'm a recent convert and am surprised to learn the Church target LGBTs. This is but another stop on the Apologizing For Being Catholic Tour which many prelates seem to enjoy.

    1. New fish, eh? Welcome! You could not have joined us at a worse time. Stick with the Bear. He's having trouble with one or two things good Catholics are supposed to believe, but that still puts him way ahead of certain high-profile Catholics.

      The Bear wrestled with demons all night. Didn't sleep a wink. Almost did a runner. (The Bear was hungry, and anyone that jogs at night is asking for it. Little joke there.)

      To make a long story short, the Bear is staying in the Catholic Church just to annoy the Hell out of the people he doesn't like and provide a USO show for the beleaguered and outnumbered real Catholics.

      But there are certain things that are a no-go for the Bear. Those he keeps to himself.

    2. Welcome Ronald. Stick with the Bear. But eschew tar babies--that's explained about a month ago in this here ephemera.

      You've come to the end of the line--there's no other place to work out your salvation in grand style. Our Lady, St Joseph, St Michael, and a heavenly host of others are with us Catholics if we but beacon. God Bless you in these trying times for Holy Mother Church.

    3. Welcome recent convert...convert myself for 14 years.

      Some advice to keep your (and all other converts') spirits up: There is a *bit* of a divergence between what you read as the Catholic Faith in dusty old books and what you experience in the Church of today. This can cause cognitive dissonance, despair, and schismatic tenancies. However, the Church was always filled with nonsense, bad bishops, idiotic laity, and people that wouldn't recognize Christ if they stuck their fingers in His nail holes. The wonderful books that you have studied and learned the Faith from represent the cream that has risen to the top. It is the Faith and the rest has been discarded as byproduct by the passing of history.

      The nonsense of today, the Apologizing for Being Catholic Tour, is for the grave. We have to deal with it because we are alive here and now. To the generations that come after us, we will leave the cream of true Faith, just as our forefathers left it for us.

      Or in the case of this ephemeris, the golden honey.

    4. Sometimes the Bear goes on a rampage. Just being a Bear. The Bear came into the Church in 749, in Turin. Over 1300 years he's come and gone, but has decided to nail his foot to the floor in front of his favorite pew and die there. If he can die, that is.

    5. Tar babies (apparently a non-PC expression for some reason) are long stories about the Pope that you mustn't touch because they will just stick to you and make a mess, while not really paying off.

    6. I was baptized and confirmed 2 Easters ago, and am well pleased with the experience. I began reading Traditionalist websites while still in RCIA, and immediately detected the stench emanating from the direction of Denmark (hat tip to Hamlet). It was reading the part of Lumen Gentium discussing our commonality with Islam that set off the alarm bells in my head. Sigh. I do perceive the True Faith behind the current circus and shall stay the course.

    7. There are traditionalist websites and traditionalist websites. Just like there are blogs and this Curious Entertainment for Discriminating Catholic Ladies and Gentlemen. Discernment is the mother of wisdom. (I just made that up, pretty good, huh?) The prime directive here is Stay In the Church, i.e the poorly run institution that owns all the fancy churches in Rome. Somebody's got to maintain witness from one generation to the next. That would be us.

      By the way. What kind of woodland creature are you? You know, animal.

    8. Right after the Bear was baptized, the Lombards under King Liutprand marched against Rome. They had special armor made for the Bear, and a splendid red cloak. In the first incident of what seems to have become a pattern, the Bear switched sides and routed the Lombard cavalry on the left flank. Horses freak out when they catch scent of a Bear, which is why you stalk them from upwind. That day, the Bear was downwind. With the cavalry in flight the whole Lombard line unzipped and it was all over. The Bear saved Rome and Pope Zachary. (The Bear thought Gregory II was still pope. That's the sort of blessed ignorance we had back then.)

    9. Never thought about it, but due to similarity of temperament and locale, probably the Lynx. Cranky, solitary hunter with little use for sociability.

  3. I am trying to find out if it's true ... and I can hardly type it without seething ... if it's true the Bishop in Orlando blamed CATHOLICS for the shooting. I have a knot in my throat from anger over the sheer mendacity of their long-distance "diagnoses" and the betrayal of their own faithful. It's OUR fault?? When the Catholic Church's prelates bend over backwards (and some just bend over -- sorry but I can't help it) for them?? When we all know the "pedophilia" problem is really a problem of homosexual priests grooming pre-pubescent and early-adolescent boys? When even the POPE sides with them and acts as if being the Vicar of Christ, handed the keys to the kingdom doesn't give him the right to "judge" them??

    1. I got all of my seething done all last night in lieu of sleeping. It's all true. The Bear is a Bad Catholic for calling out frauds instead off kissing their butts like Good Catholics.

  4. Oh by the way, Bear, it looks as if you were right regarding the terrorist's sexuality ... UK's Daily Mail is a tabloid, but they were posting the guy's name long before the US media did, and with the San Bernardino shooters, I got far more info from them than any MSM in the US:

    1. Read it.

      It would give quite a different spin if he was angry because the qwerty people were not welcoming, accepting and tolerant of him [e.g. "nobody liked him", etc.].

    1. You're quite welcome. Hope any traffic brings their quarters! This stuff is too good to give away, says an old show Bear.

  6. I think a regular feature should here ought to be The American Bishop Freak Show. I'll pay my two bits to read it and weep. Optimism is cowardice!

    1. Excellent idea! It would be far too depressing for the Bear, so when can we expect your first installment?

  7. Lynch did turn 75 on May 27th and submitted his resignation. Waiting on Francis to accept it. See his previous blog post.

    If you know the history of Lynch, his statement is not surprising, and given that he is waiting for acceptance of resignation, he has nothing to lose by writing it.

  8. Barry melt down massively. It was funny...and dangerous for the US.

  9. What is the ratio between time spent in Eucharistic Adoration : time spent reading catholic blogs ??
    1: 1
    1:100
    1:1000 ?

    1. How many local parishes have Eucharist adoration and have Jesus not hidden in a broom closet disguised as a shoebox?

      The quality of some blogs surely must count as spiritual reading.

      Now what is more interesting of a question is how many writers pray as they write and research. Every time we speak, we should pursue Christ and bring Himto each other. As you did. As I do now.

  10. Hi Evermindful. I spend time on Catholic Blogs so that when I visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament on Thursdays (only day my Novus Ordo parish has it) I know what to talk with Him about.
