|You know that moment when you realize the Pope isn't one of us?|
First all, don't miss the Bear's outrageously provocative, but dead-on, article directly below this one. You'll be happy to know that, with Judging Angels off to the publisher, and 6000 words into the sequel, the Bear is back in the Woodlands, and has lost none of his Bearishness.
The Bear is certain you remember this horrific, but emblematic, picture from Pope Video One. Aleteia posted it with a story entitled: Stunning: Pope's Powerful New Video Initiative Packs a Prayerful Punch.
Stunning: Barrister Bear's Beastly New Barrage of Blows Blasts Ecclesiastical Baboonery. Because there's no such thing as too much alliteration.
The Bear will agree that the naked display of syncretism / indifferentism was stunning, all right. He read the article three times, however, and must report that somebody actually thought this was stunning in a good way, like Ginger Rogers in her infamous feathered dress in Top Hat stunning.
The Bear was vaguely aware of the website Aleteia, but it smelled like sulphur, even at a distance, so he never went near the place. But tonight, he got lost and wandered into the swamp. What he found was a truly - how can the Bear put this delicately - an embarrassingly gushing article displaying spasms of intense pleasure at the first, and worst, of the Pope Videos that have been regularly lampooned by the Bear and the Hound. who, between us, have had the best commentary, if the Bear may say so, on these ridiculous and poorly produced non-Catholic commercials for Niceness.
Pope Francis is just so dreamy!
The Bear left a comment here, and were a number of woodland creatures to descend upon their comment section, it would be hilarious. The Bear knows what sharp little teeth you have, my pretties. He can't imagine a more worthy target than the fatuous writers at that gin joint. Your Bear has led the way, and invites you to follow with all the holy glee you possess. Who knows, this could become a regular thing.
