Scat Cat and His Band of Alley Cats

I only wish I were referring to the Disney semi-classic The Aristocats.  But the photoshopped horror (PUBLISHED BY VATICAN RADIO AND NOT SOME IDIOTIC LOCAL CATHOLIC BLOG) of Francis as Martin Luther is creeping me out, especially after the pope's unfortunate and bizarre poop comments. I can't believe this is happening...

Well, leave it to better students of history than yours truly to note the unsettling similarity between Luther and the first pope to claim he had a good point after all-- they talk about the scat:

Is it a coincidence that Martin Luther too had a preoccupation with feces? It was he who penned such gems as “I am ripe s---, so is the world a great wide a--hole; eventually we will part” and “I have shat in my pants and breeches; hang them on your neck and wipe your mouth with them.” (There is more here if you are interested). And it was Saint Thomas More who wrote of Luther that “he conceives nothing in his head other than stupidities, rages and insanities; [and] has nothing in his mouth other than sewers, sh-- and dung—with which he plays the buffoon more filthily and obscenely than any actual buffoon ever did.”

As Maureen Mullarkey has written regarding this stercoraceous eruption from the mouth of Mount Bergoglio: “This pontificate is a cornucopia of last straws.” Indeed, take your pick. Damian Thompson, protesting “the Pope’s bizarre rant about eating faeces” over at The Spectator, notes the widening disillusionment with this calamitous papacy before concluding: “The Pope turns 80 this month. A surprising number of Catholics are wondering whether this might not be an appropriate moment for him to retire. Count me among them.”

But Rod Dreher best captures the essence of the problem. In a blog post entitled “Poop Talk with Pope Francis,” he delivers this devastating one-liner: “The Vicar of Christ, ladies and gentlemen.”


Francis is determined to bring the papacy down to his level, and the whole Church along with it. To the extent humanly possible, the Church has become his plaything. The result is at once a demonstration of the power and the peril of the papacy.

That Luther had a potty-mouth is an understatement- what else would we expect from the same mouth which accused Jesus Himself of adultery? If you read enough of Luther in his own words, it is difficult not to wonder if the man was possessed.

My initial excitement over the Dubia, that we might finally get some clarity or correction of course, has morphed into fear for the soul of the Pope, and frankly, pity for him as he seems to become increasingly unhinged.The man needs our prayers desperately. I consider it to be the great grace given me this Advent that the Lord took my longstanding anger toward the Pope and replaced it with compassion for a man in great spiritual danger.

Let us pray for this poor man, and for healing in the Church during this 100th anniversary of Fatima.

Perhaps we should add him into the Oratory 54-day Novena that just started.
