Rants: An Irony



The irony is that certain comments of mine have recently been characterized as “bigoted” by a Catholic.

Objective observers will have noted that the context provided for the word “Protestant” by Catholic priests (and committed laymen) will most frequently cause it to resonate like the epithet “Nigra,” as spewed from the Mail Pouch-stained lips of a Mississippi deputy sheriff, circa 1960.

What comments? And who is this Catholic?

The comment in question was censored. The jist of it was that cynical, allegedly "pro-life" politician who solicit the Catholic vote will never really do anything about it (such as a constitutional amendment) because there's no financial backing for it. There's no financial backing for it because there's no money to be made by "saving babies."
This opinion I gave at the blog Disputations.

That comment is considered "bigoted"? Oh please, get out the smelling salts for whoever had a fainting spell over that...

I have discerned over the years that Catholics, while they have their good qualities as a group, tend also to be afflicted with a stubborn martyr complex. They aren't really happy unless they can identify the Enemy, who is in service of "the World," and keep him under surveillance. In this exercise (when they aren't keening and gnashing their teeth)they tend to be pointing fingers and name-calling. But, they can't help it. They are encouraged in these activities by the Authorities.
