Some people are taking crazy pills. I just don't get this.
First we have Michael Vorhis, who wants to stand up for the Faith, can get pretty strident. He's crossed the line a couple of times and taken some hits for that. No defense of that, but not unforgiveable. He's had his knuckles rapped. And, on the plus side, he stood up to people who tend to be on his side when they trashed Pope Francis.
Enter Robert Sungenis, who has at various times presented himself as a Catholic apologist. Except that he also trashes the Jews. (Google it.) OK, so we know what to do with that, right? Right?
Sungenis decides to take on a new project: Nicolaus Copernicus was wrong!
Wait, what? Wasn't that the priest who discovered the planets move around the sun, rather than everything moving around earth?
Yes, that Copernicus. Mr. Sungenis is making a movie claiming that's all bogus. It all really, sort of, kind of, actually...
Revolves around the earth.
Come on, that's whack! I mean, right guys? We all know this?
Except not Michael Vorhis, apparently.
I just have one thing to say to you people.
Knock it off!
1. Catholics don't trade in bigoted conspiracy theories about Jews (or anyone else). Because -- to put it diplomatically -- it's moronic.
2. Catholics have no issue with the discoveries of science. We freakin' invented the scientific method, for criminy's sake!
Is this a test or something? Is this a Truman Show moment? Or is this a sign of the Apocalypse?
Just stop it! Plant some tomatoes. Watch a baseball game. Please stop the crazy!
