Bishop Sheen got it right

"There are not more than 100 people in the world who truly hate the Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they perceive to be the Catholic Church. ....As a matter of fact, if we Catholics believed all of the untruths and lies which were said against the Church, we probably would hate the Church a thousand times more than they do."

Fifty shades of Grey-- hohum

Okay, why is this book popular?  I can't even be bothered to read it just to see about what all the hubbub is.

Now, don't get me wrong, I am susceptible to "popular" fiction.  I read Harry Potter, and Twilight, and most recently Hunger Games. SO I am not immune.  But why why Fifty Shades of Gray(grey)
I perused a few pages, nothing but a paragraph here or there, and from the miniscule that I read I felt I was re-reading 120 of Sodom and the Story of O.  I must admit 120 ruined me for getting excited about porn-and for that I thank Sade. By day 40 I was bored,  but I kept reading out of a sense of " I might as well finish this."

If u are inclined to read porn, read the good stuff.  And if you want to read bad porn read the best of bad porn.  Though I warn you even when porn is done well, it very quickly descends into sheer boredom;.

The key to clean bedrooms: Clothes Hangers

I look around the bedrooms and I see clothing strewn all over the floor and on top of dressers. And I came to the realization that I have been asking the girls to clean and organize their room, and yet they can't because they don't have enough clothes hangers. I blame the stores. It used to be that when one went clothes shopping the hanger would come home with your purchase. But as of late, store either display the clothing (jeans t-shirts) folded on tables or the cashiers remove and retain the hangers when you reach the check out. This results in our having to purchase clothes hangers. Walmart sells a brand 30 hangers for about $7. that is about a quarter (23.3c) a hanger. Couldn't Walmart just let us keep the hangers and add the quarter like they add 5c for the plastic bag???

Women are smarter than men!!?

It took ehow many studies to prove this.

Just a few thoughts/reactions:

1. They really needed a bunch of studies to prove that.  Honestly.  And yet feminists strive to be equal to men. Does anyone, besides me, see how they keep shooting themselves in the feet?

Did I ever mention that I am 95% feminist?

This whole parity-with-men crap is 1 out of the 5 percents with which I never agreed. I mean why would I seek parity when we are naturally better, in so many ways? When women try to get equal to men they get more stupid: case in point: women priests-'nough said.


2. Maybe they should study the difference in the mental acuity of women who embrace their femininity and those who strive to be manly.

3. It explains why God created us male and female. (If you are a woman you understand, and don't need an explanation, and if you are a man, you won't, can't understand, so an explanation will not help)

Could it be we were never to be in competition with each other?

We are supposed to help each other.
We work together, like cogs in a wheel.


4. Well, at least this settles the issue.. at least until the next set of studies which prove a) that IQ tests are bunk, or b) studies such as these are useless and meaningless.




Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
