I am a 73-year-old Catholic – Roman Catholic – and I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. In some circles I am known as Don Quixote de la Santa Fe. They say I joust with windmills – but that I have won my fair share.
In days of yore – as a child, teenager, and young adult – we were a Roman Catholic community. We were well schooled in traditional catechism and well formed in our traditional Roman Catholic faith.
Today we are a Christian community that is further evolving into a community of the faithful; a community where Sunday mass is about the Sermon of the Amount and a second collection; a community of marginally catechized and marginally formed modernist Catholics.
It’s Advent, the sacred season of Our Lord’s first coming. And what better time for a perpetually prattling Pope to disgust the whole Catholic world with what he seems to think is a clever analogy between irresponsible journalism and coprophilia, the perverse erotic attraction to human feces, and coprophagia, the perverse desire to eat feces.
For the second time since 2013 (when he was still Cardinal Bergoglio), Francis has uttered this scatological atrocity, this time in meandering remarks to an obscure Belgian magazine published on the Vatican website:
And then, I believe that the media should be very clear, very transparent, and not fall prey – without offence, please – to the sickness of coprophilia, which is always wanting to communicate scandal, to communicate ugly things, even though they may be true. And since people have a tendency towards the sickness of coprophagia, it can do great harm.
