and now for something completely different...

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 23, 2007

The Canadian, "Canada's new socially progressive and cross-cultural national newspaper," brings us the unexpected news that a noted Italian journalist-- noted, at least, by The Canadian-- has news from about...

..an unnamed Vatican Jesuit priest who has confidentially disclosed inside information about a clandestine meeting in 1954 at California’s Muroc Air Force Base (later named Edwards AFB) involving President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Los Angeles Bishop James Francis McIntyre and an extraterrestrial delegation.

Oh, wow. Heavy.

CWN cannot independently confirm the accuracy of this report. We have, however, had conversations with Jesuits who certainly do seem to have been conversing with creatures from outer space. Maybe this explains it.

(Tip to New Oxford Review for the reference.)

    Art Kelly have you been listening to too much Art Bell?

    We may have found what has happened in our Church: Invasion of the Bishop Snatchers.

    Do you deny the possibility of intelligent life on other planets, including creatures advanced enough to travel through space? And if so, they would be created by God in his own image and likeness. And that they may have sinned and were redeemed by the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, who established a Church. And that, traveling to Earth, they might seek out religious leaders similiar to their own back home. Can you state with a certainty that this story has no foundation whatsover?

    This vital revelation explains so so many things. And to think I was growing up in LA at the time and was even confirmed by McIntyre. The basis of the Jesuits' misguided perspective is now known. Yes, McIntyre did have a "discussion" with Immaculate Heart College. Too bad the discussion didn't include, Loyola, Marymount, and Mt. St. Marys. Maybe they would have folded up their tents as well.

    This just in: "Even the extraterrestrials hate the LA Cathedral."

    That explains Nancy Pelosi's peculiarly youthful appearance.

    Is it that these creatures just look evil? Could that be why these liberals are so smitten with them? Everyone is happy when good defeats evil! But you have to admit some of these films are just plain gross and hideously evil and now they're saying its real??? Didn't someone, somewhere prophesied that these transports are from hell?

    And in Florida they found a half alligator/half man. The half man looked like an alien. It was in the National Enquirer and we saw it in the grocery store check-out line library. This is where we get all our important news.

    This story can be verified. It was made famous in the that last, touching scene of E.T. just before E.T. leaves for good Steven Spieberg is our nation's greatest Catholic movie maker (even though he may be jewish)

    Aha, now we know what has happened to the Jesuits. Beam me up Scotty!

    Take it easy adamah. This blog is a great way for us to be entertained as well as to be educated during the week. I think the point here was more to bring attention to the mental disorders and rabid heterodoxy afflicting most jesuits than to give any credence to UFOs, alien abductions or Elvis sightings.

    Didn't Card. McIntyre eventually have it out with the extraterrestrials? It was at Immaculate Heart College, I think, and the creatures left, or so the story goes...

    All those "news" stories about UFO's lead me to wonder if this media institution is just a front for the clone-loving Raelian cult that is based in Quebec.

    This nonsense isn't worth reporting. What next, excerpts from The National Enquirer?
