Saturday I attended the 12th annual Catholic Men’s Conference at the DCU center in Worcester (formally the Centrum for any expats living elsewhere for a while) a few quick thoughts from it:
It’s quite a sight to see hundreds of men in line for confession. Particularly if in your parish only a few people regularly confess.
Even if you are that rarest of people a married catholic priest you still make wife quips
It’s one of the few places when you will see George Weigel of National Review,,,
And really where but in a conference of men can you hear a priest give a speech on confession and Masturbation?
These men’s conferences have since the first one in Worcester that dozen years ago have sprung up around the country and have been an important part of re-catechizing the faithful, particularly when the MSM and the Culture delight in the abject hatred of the faith and present their image of it accordingly.
There is nothing so frustrating to secular humanists and the media as a well catechized Catholic.
Driving home from the conference yesterday I heard on the Radio that the new Black Panthers have put a prize on the head of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin last month
You know last time I mentioned the murder rate of young black men in the inner city. I don’t remember the New Black Panthers offering a bounty on any of their killers of those young black men.
Apparently the New Black Panthers hold the same rules for certain words as they do for the killing of young Black men. It’s apparently OK to murder a young black man provided the killer is also black.
I suspect the mothers of those young Black men murdered by gang and drug violence every year might disagree.
Of course it could be economic considerations. If the New Black Panthers offered a bounty for the killers in black on black violence, the payoffs might bankrupt them.
Since Mr. Zimmerman is Hispanic I wonder if La Raza will be providing protection or a counter bounty if someone collects the bounty on Zimmerman?
Twitchy reports Spike Lee is re-tweeting Zimmerman’s home address. If Zimmerman is murdered I wonder if La Raza will be taking these names down?
Here is a story Spike Lee hasn’t bothered to re-tweet:
Investigators with the Sanford Police Department are still trying to figure out exactly what happened during an altercation which resulted in a fatal shooting in the Twin Lakes area. The shooting happened just after 7 p.m. Sunday evening on Twin Trees Lane. A man who witnessed part of the altercation contacted authorities.
“The guy on the bottom, who had a red sweater on, was yelling to me, ‘Help! Help!’ and I told him to stop, and I was calling 911,” said the witness, who asked to be identified only by his first name, John.
John said he locked his patio door, ran upstairs and heard at least one gun shot.
“And then, when I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on the top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point.”
That story BTW is from Feb 27th Tom McGuire also picks up on something the MSM has not:
However, one wonders what the City Manager means by “We are aware of the background information regarding both individuals involved in this event.” Isn’t the second individual Trayvon Martin, and what (if anything) do they know that the public does not?
It has been reported that Trayvon Martin was on a ten-day suspension from school, but those records have been kept from the public. I have not checked Mr. Martin’s high school, but as a guide, some other Miami high school imposes ten day suspensions for fighting, but also as a culmination of repeated violations of the dress code or smoking bans. The police know, but we don’t, and the Martin family attorneys are keeping a lid on this.
And Dan Riehl has noticed some interesting photoplay that’s being used. There is
