Muscular Christianity

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 25, 2004

Make this priest a bishop, quick.

Appoint him to deal with politicians who support abortion. He sounds persuasive.

    Alas, he has permanently disqualified himself from any possible promotion. Not our kind of guy---the current hierarchy.

    Ditto, Diogenes. Name this preist as a bishop. Today! Thank you, Jesus, for such great example from my brother priests. This story would go a long way with promoting vocations! I might send Father Foley a made-in-USA Buck or Schrade pocket knife or fixed-blade knife so that he has some added self-defense (and an everyday tool) in the inner-city parish, yet it seems that he does fine with the hand-to-hand combat (in prayer and in fighting for the Church)! Ad maiorem Dei gloriam!

    Make him pope! A young athletic John Paul was good to take down communism from Easter Europe. A tough priest from Chicago may take down the European Union beast, the Democratic Party harlot and all the New Age scholars, philosophers, witches and assorted pagan rabble.
