gather me out

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 08, 2009

Affective maturity meets spiritual paternity in Pennsylvania:

A priest in the Diocese of Scranton has been removed as administrator of three Throop parishes after he inadvertently displayed four photos of what a diocese spokesman called "minimally attired adult males" before the 8 a.m. Mass at St. Bridget's Church on Oct. 25.

The Rev. Edward P. Lyman was using his personal computer to project an informational DVD about the diocesan Annual Appeal fundraiser when he accidentally showed the "inappropriate personal photographs" that were stored on his computer, according to a diocesan statement read at the Throop Masses on Sunday.

Forgot to de-fag your hard drive, Father?

    "Gather Me Out", I, too, was rotfl....It made me wonder if they sang "We come to tell our story." Then when I got to "de-fag your hard drive" it was too much. Keep that lantern burning, Di.

    I don't donate to Catholic Culture so I can read immature puns like that.
