That Old Black Magic

MFBTIR* goes off on Bill Donohue. Heh.

As though Bill Donohue didn’t have enough to be cranky about.

What’s wrong with the rhythm method anyway? That’s how I got here.

Millions of people are nodding...

Donohue took time out from hyperventilating against the president to hyperventilate against the rapper Nicki Minaj. He was in a snit about Minaj arriving at the Grammys in a red Versace cloak resembling a cardinal’s, arm in arm with an actor dressed like the pope, and her over-the-top exorcist-themed number.

“Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer,” Donohue bristled.

Millions of altar boys are praying for female priests instead of the ones they have to do that to.

[...] The only good thing about it, as Marc Hogan wrote in Spin, was the chance that her devilish song might make “Bill Donohue’s head spin while spewing green vomit.”

Ah, to dream!

The satanic rap was merely the latest illustration of the renewed fascination with the ancient rite of exorcism. After languishing in the Catholic Church, exorcisms are back in fashion. In 2004, worried about the rise of the occult, Pope John Paul II asked Cardinal Ratzinger, the head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith who went on to become Pope Benedict XVI, to direct bishops around the world to appoint and train exorcists in their dioceses.

The infusion of Hispanic and African Catholics to the U.S., with their more intense belief in the supernatural, has brought a fresh demand.

The joke's on you, Holy Mofo Church. You didn't actually think The Other'd convert all the way, did you? Bwahahahaha! Only enough to keep you from killing them.

I think the Roman, Greek, Eastern, and probably Coptic Churches would shit if they knew what old gods got trotted out when it doesn't rain and the crops might fail. That's what they want to exorcise. Fat chance, robe boy.

It has nothing to do with doctrine, it has to do with donations.

And Donohue should die in a fire.

He should drown in santorum.
