Look, this situation is becoming grave, and the laity, of which I am one, am becoming more and more confused. What we never thought would happen, couldn't conceive of happening, in our world, in our church, is now happening.
Could we all PLEASE stop using satire as a form of outrage or expression? It is becoming maddening to read things that could possibly be true in this Thunderdome we call the world. Enough!
