Well, Call Me A Schismatic and Crown Me Pope

October 23rd, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

Evidently, having an icon which is built into the edifice of St. Peter’s in Rome is proof enough that we’re reveling in “ultra right wing cookiness.”

Look down towards the end of her post.

My crozier tingles.

(Nod of the miter to Vickie Purcell for letting us know.)

    You may note that I predated this post with a comment on her blog post by an hour or more 😛 I suppose I should've sent the email alert, SORRY GUYS!

    I suppose I decided she didn't really deserve a response to that idiocy.

    Yes, Maccarone, I called your post idiocy. I'd make a terrible priest, I'm not very pastoral. Meh.

    You are a cyber-martyr for the cause, Matt. You have our deepest appreciation. You may now be called "Defensor Fidei" by your friends.

    Being pastoral is something for saints and liberals. For the rest of us is dry and piercing wit and rhetoric.

    Not that those aren't saintly things.

    That was a bit of a strange comment for her to make. I'm not really sure what to make of it honestly.

  4. Gen says:

    I know. Usually she's above petty name calling, be it implied or overt.

    Wow… so you guys are on equal par with conclavists? Ridiculous.

    conclavists make the SSPV look mainstream.

  6. Gen says:

    Just to let you all know, I am officially the pope of Cleansing Fire.

    Dr. K, Choir, Nerina, Sr. Emily and I had a conclave and I won.

    Who's buying my apostolic ring?

    I will keep her in my prayers.

  8. Gen,

    You can use the apostolic ring that I posted under Ecclesiastical Bling.

  9. Nerina says:


    I wish I had known I was at an official conclave… I would have fought harder.

    I lost…

    Just kidding. Sorry Genjlcgettys, I can't offer you an apostolic ring. Thank you anyways for bringing this to light, It gave me a dose of hilarity, I like one every now and then.

  11. Gen says:

    Maybe just another white cassock, then, Yapollo?
