Speaking with youth, especially young guys, one can easily encounter different issues being batted about as to why traditional values have been thrown out the window. Young men it seems, don't relate to the Church anymore, and this is one of the reasons first Communion and Confirmation classes are getting smaller and smaller. Really? C'mon, your telling me that 10-15year old young guys don't want to sing 'I've go the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart' and every other syrupy sugar coated happy clappy crap that birthed it self in the silly sixties? So,..the last few weeks saw me getting accosted (strong word) by the leftover stoners from Woodstock, who strangely enough still have jobs in our chancerie offices and our parishes.
People, time to cut the bullshit. You would think that Jesus is some Mr Rogers type character going around colouring banners especially the way that generation passes Him off as. Am I being uncharitable? No,..I'm being a guy who was once a boy who had to choose between hockey practice in the morning or catechism with Father Fruitloop. At ten years old, I chose hockey practice, not because I rejected Jesus, I simply rejected the crappy assault on my nature perpetrated by an agenda laden generation intent on feminizing the culture. Men are men and women are women.
Why the aggressivity you ask?,.Well,.because I had to sit through confirmations and witness an all out assault on the liturgy, (guess I should be disensitized by now...) and now we were told about our 'feelings'..Then we wonder why the west is in the shape its in. Friends of mine who are secular or Catholic by culture wonder why I practice my Faith, knowing that I'm a sinner, yet still striving for holiness. When I get asked questions regarding philosophy and objective truth, St Thomas,..the Cross,..etc...I answer about how cool the Mass is, then when the Church is full of these secular people, they(liturgy commitee..) break out their syrupy stupidity and lo and behold they wonder aloud why there are no vocations? Grey haired freakos,..yes you,..the ones who don't have the balls to write an intelligent comment and who instead flood my hotmail under the name 'anonymous,' you know who you are,...Here is your call to action: The next time you find the Pope too insensitive or whatever, look up from your pew, see the exit sign, or fire escape for all I care and leave! There is an anglican Church somewhere who I'm sure will tolerate you even worshipping Baal...Just stop trying to harm the Church, because you will ultimately lose.
Sacred Heart of Jesus,...Have mercy on us.
