remember that blind date?

By Diogenes (articles - email) | Apr 24, 2007

Have you ever wondered-- perhaps not altogether kindly-- what happened to your college classmate, who fixed you with Blind Date from Hell? I think I know.

A group called Animal Defenders International has brought suit in European court, hoping for a ban on experiments using apes as subjects.

Expert statements from primatologists and professors of law in the case argue that chimps can biologically be considered as humans...

So now the remaining question is: Did your classmate become a primatologist or a law prof?

    Let each one of these fresh "revelations" be a fresh reminder to pray for our Holy Father, the Church and indeed for all the Mystical Body. Simply, news=prayer! No moment of grace wasted in useless thoughts. LET US PRAY! Deo Gratias

    The death of Jesus' Church has been predicted so often that it is getting a bit monotonous. However, what those Pharisees out there don't realize, they killed Jesus once, but that's last chance they will ever get. Has anyone ever asked themselves why the Pharisees want to silence Jesus' Church; because they don't want to hear about SIN and its consequences. With His Church gone, they can SIN with impunity and not worry. But, they ARE worried especially on their deathbed.

    Well, by O'Connor's own public admission, there are questions about HER mental health, so that leaves Hans Kung as the sober, moderate voice of reason in all of this.

    Beautiful. Sinead, Agca and Kung. I'm sure the Catholic Health Association and Network are preparing their press releases. Wonder if the Ku Klux Klan will exploit this opportunity to make a comeback!

    If there are questions about Agca's mental health, maybe there should be questions about AP's mental health for reporting on what he said. I didn't think the media could stoop any lower than asking for Sinead O'Connor's opinion. Guess I was wrong.

    Does the AP also raise questions about Hans Kung's mental health? Just wondering.
