The Trouble With The Poor

#1  Postby trubble76 » Sep 09, 2013 10:28 am

An outspoken Catholic priest has launched an astonishing attack on the poor by labeling them 'lying, drug-abusing illegitimates'.

Father Ray Blake wrote a furious blog denouncing the homeless, in an online post titled, 'The Trouble With The Poor'.

He describes the poor as being 'lying and messy' people sent by God to test his faith.

Father Blake goes on to claim that one homeless man who regularly turned up at his church pleading for money was 'an irritating little bastard'.

He accused the beggar of making a mess of his prayers as he passed his cap around his congregation looking for cash.

The controversial Catholic cleric said: 'The trouble with the poor is that they are messy.


Continues here.

And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free.

The end of the article.......
A spokesperson for the Catholic Church said Father Blake's blog was an independent post which was not representative of the Church's views.


What a counfounded nuisance these selfish poor must be to his freeloading existence. He even accuses them of telling lies to get money for fuck's sake. "Hello there Mr Kettle, bit erm black aren't we".
The Bible is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.

You would think if the church didn't agree with his views they would tell him to get the fuck out and make his own religion and stop mudding up theirs. Its what I would do to protect my religious group if I had one.

Well priests certainly get suspended for their views.

Yes, but only if it turns out you have nothing against the gays or women. Or sex with legal adults.

American homeless should be offered the choice of being eaten or moving to Somalia, where they would be wealthy.

Well some Cat-licks are child abusers, and this guy wants the final solution to the great unwashed...I guess it is a case of "...he who has no sin, may cast the first stone". I guess they all felt guilty about something, so nothing was done.

Wonder how long it'll take for this piece of singing from the Dominionist hymn sheet to become official church doctrine?

Nail, head. :thumbup:

Also..
The priest ends his blog: 'The message of the Gospels seems to be to let the poor into it to mess it up a little.'

Mmmm! "Blessed are the poor..."

Some Christian!
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.
