Bush administration wire-tapped Catholic Masses ...

Via Catholicnews.org (Many thanks to Mark for leading me to this wonderful blog)

Officials also stated that emphasis on certain Biblical passages show a lack of patriotism on the part of Catholics.

"During wartime, we really don't need to hear about Jesus fussing at Peter after he cut the soldier's ear off," said one official. "We also don't need to hear about all that turning the other cheek mess, either. What we need to hear -- and what the American public needs to hear during wartime -- is more about Jesus dividing households and such. You know, the eye for eye, tooth for a tooth passages."

Thanks for linking to this critically important alert. What would be ever do without the vigilance of folks like you? 8-)

BTW, Catholicnews.org is also a great source of authoritative info on religious history, trends in Catholic music, politics and even meteorology.

Have we a new DRE for St. Blog's Parish?
