Contagious Disease Alert

July 21st, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

The CF hotline has received a flurry of calls reporting a contamination of the Rochester area. Evidently, at least two DoR-affiliated people have confirmed cases, with numerous more people suspected of being infected.

The disease is called “It’s The Parish’s Fault, Not The Bishop’s.” The two confirmed cases are Fr. Hart, who stated that the people of St. Anne Church brought their situation upon themselves because they haven’t “produced a priest,” and “Persis,” a new Rochester blogger who states that the closing of St. Thomas is because they are a “cold-hearted” people who are quite “self-righteous.” The two people, both affiliated with the diocese and, thus, Bishop Clark, are in need of our prayers and a possible vaccination. And yet, they both seem to know what it is that ails the diocese. What is it, pray tell?

All I have to say is: Physician, heal thyself.

No parish should be blamed for becoming a victim of ecclesiastic politicking.

    Persis is Fr. Hart 😉

    The diocese can play the blame game all they want. In the end, it is Bishop Clark's fault, and any closure that occurs is because of him, not the planning groups.

    The doctor in the picture looks like she smells something terrible, and that smell is the stench of corruption that surrounds Bishop Clark and Fr. Hart.

    What's the website for the new Rochester blogger?

    I hope there are parishes left when the new bishop arrives.

  5. Mike says:

    Fr. Hart also suffers from a related malady, "Parents Should Have Seen It Coming."

    See here.

    Has anyone ever seen that link before? I am not in any way at all suggesting that it is true, put that on the record.

    If only the DoR leaders were as good at managing the diocese as they are at passing blame to everyone but themselves.

  8. Mary Kay says:

    "Persis" appears to be a fake and/or troll. Unfortunately, I took the bait before thoroughly vetting.

    Of "her" eight "favorite links:"
    "Christian Classics" is a domain for sale,
    "Sacred Space" is a commercial listing of sites with that name,
    Beliefnet is an "every religion under the sun" site,
    three are very general – DOR, USCCB and St. Bernard's,
    the remaining two are St. Louis University and Henri Nouwen, would be more popular with "progressive" than "traditional" Catholics. (I myself would "vote present" on any discussion of the last two.)

    And yes, I'm up late – thanks to some noisy neighbors.

    Good finds Mary Kay.

    And look at that, Lee Strong ran over there to defend her and say her comments weren't mean. Did he bother to check out the comment she posted here about how St. Thomas parishioners are cold and self-righteous?

    Observations of the above two posts are noted, and stored away in my mind for future reference.

    Thanks for the info.
