Oh, good!

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 16, 2005

Just in time, the US bishops' conference has issued a statement on hurricane Katrina.

They're against it.

They've appointed a committee.

Who'd have guessed?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Well, since we now know that the USCCB said that they're against Katrina, it does mean one thing: She's wasn't homosexual.

    What a sad, sad commentary on the successors to the Apostles in the US. This is the "best" that they can do? I would rather not hear from them. Rather, let us just hear from them individually. The Holy Father is THE Bishop among bishops. He can speak for the body of bishops. Again: Nuke the USCCB. When the bishops voted for Bps. Trautman & Skylstad they declared themselves a dead body anyway. Re-form the bishops' conference with a the millennial bishops. Reduce the staff in Washington to 25.

    I didn't read it all the way through, but if they said that the Hurricane wasn't an act of God, they'd be mistaken. Something like that can only be an act of God. He's destroyed cities before, why not now?

    So the storm wasn't part of God's creation? Let me guess...George Bush's fault. Who writes this drivel, anyway?
