This is so sad

Okay, get this: I sort of browsed through the "Webshots" page the other day and found something very, very... well... I don't even know how to call it. See for yourself:

This guy, who calls himself "cultureboy" created an album with the title "Gay Culture in Catholicism". This alone is worth a million laughs. After recovering from the "gay culture"-shock I had the following vision of cardinals and bishops sitting around in Rome, dressed in sackcloth, looking dull and bored, until suddenly one little prelate jumped up and said:

"That's it! Let's dress like those strange people who march through Rome once a year! What do they call it again? Ah, yes: "Pompa die plateae Christophori"

"But...," objected a skinny old cardinal. "You know that they are... erm... homosexuals?"

"Awww, come on!" insisted the tiny fellow. "Don't be so negative and boring! These guys have been doing this for centuries. I mean, they developed a culture. We can learn from them. Just look at us! Christ has been dead for centuries now and we didn't attract a single soul to his Church. Surely there must be something wrong with our style. Come on! Please?"

"I don't know..." The old cardinal slowly shook his head.

"I want a pointy jewelled hat!" A young bishop with a goat-like beard reaised his hand.

"See?" The tiny prelate jumped up and down with exitement.

"I want silk!" sighed a fat cardinal and closed his eyes. "Lots of silk!"




More and more hands were raised.

"Oh well," said the old cardinal. "Let's go and ask His Holiness then, shall we?"

As they left the room, the young bishop walked up to the little cardinal. "Did you know that most of those homosexuals have the name Gaius?"

"No. Why?"

"I don't know. It just seems strange."

"So we'll all be "Gaii" soon?" grinned the tiny prelate.

Okay, I got carried away here. What I really wanted to share with you are some of the photos and captions this "cultureboy" posted on the Webshots page (errors his):

A Bishop first thing in the morning.
Ready to face the starving millions of children who can't afford a pice of bread.

The Clergy Network for the Elimination of World Poverty.
Designer Vestments for the discerning man.

A Hard Day's Night.
After a gruelling day of rallies against world poverty and petition signing, the weary bishops and their mates settle in for a good DVD

As I said: This is so sad! On the one hand one could feel relieved, thinking that utter crap like this might be one of the bigger challenges the Church has to face in the future. On the other hand it is scary, because there are lots of people out there who will fall for this garbage just because it gives them another excuse. I mean, who would really be willing and able to take a sober look at reality, after decades of emotions taking over reason?

Can you hear the boo-hoo-ing? "Could anybody please at least for one second think of all the starving little children all over the world?"

Well, certainly not the Church. She has taken the next step long ago. She acts. Welcome to the real world.

I totally agree. I met this guy today when I was innocently having a sandwich on a picnic bench and he came over and tried to get me interested in Gay and Christian groups. I looked up his site and lo and behold, I'm not the first.I am sick of these guys, they are bordering on molesters. You better leave me alone cultureboy, you and your kind. Gay and Christian, what a sick mix.
