Welcome to the Tribe

A devout Catholic friend of mine, despairing over the latest attack on women by the Church hierarchy (it seems American nuns have been too busy doing the work of Christ to be sufficiently deferential to the men who call themselves His heirs), wrote me this:

 If I cannot be Catholic, I may have to become a Jew for Jesus. Or maybe just a Jew. I am not entirely joking.

Hey, the more the merrier. This was my response:

You’re welcome any time. You’ll just have to get used to worshiping on Saturday instead of Sunday, and learn to read from right to left.

  1. Would Jews for Jesus actually have a better record on this issues? Seriously, I don’t know.

  2. You might want to refer your friend to my series of articles on the child sex abuse scandal in the Church. Start here:

    Precisely the same ‘organization men’ are orchestrating the current issue too . . .

  3. Well, yeah, and then there’s that pork thing….

  4. Oh, hooker, please. That “devout friend” could never give up shrimp, scallops or bacon.
