Well, St. Francis always did think the gospel was for the birds.

Just think – if the bolt of lightening that hit St. Peter’s had hit this critter Frankie could’ve had a foul din-din and not have to cook it himself. There’s nothing like lightening roasted sea gull!!! I wonder why St Malarky forgot to mention this.

Could give a whole new meaning to,’if there’s smoke, there’s fire.’<;o)

It is true…we, all too often, have the “gull” to think it is all about us.

Well, if had landed a bit later, they would have had smoked seagull…
That is a Vatican delicacy, but not on Fridays.

Stupid bird. Doesn’t it know that a person’s true worth is measured by the number of likes they get on a facebook post?

Maybe that bird was on TWITTER!
Comment by Errol — March 23, 2013 @ 1:37 am
Regarding Carol’s comment: Would it make any difference if it were “white smoked seagull” or “black smoked seagull?” Surly “white smoked ” would be the way to go but could you have a special dispensation to indulge in “blacked smoked seagull?” And if you couldn’t get the special indulgence and ate the “black smoked bird” anyway would it be a venial or a mortal sin?

Ummm. Maybe we should check with Van Impe and company about this bird. So far I have not heard him say anything about this foul critter although he has plenty of nice things to say about the guys who parade around under the fish hats, you know, the prophets of Babel.
Comment by Carol — March 24, 2013 @ 8:22 pm
Ask Jack Van Impe about the special compensation about this bird. I’m sure the bird was captured and taxidermed and placed on display in the Vatican as a special message from their Lady.
Comment by Carol — March 24, 2013 @ 8:23 pm
Sorry, I meant dispensation….not up on all the Catholic lingo ya know…
Comment by Errol — March 25, 2013 @ 12:55 pm
That’s OK, Carol, but sending him to a taxidermist? Maybe a better idea would be to capture this critter, cut him all up in little pieces and send his parts to convents, shrines, and churches around the world, for a price of course. Imagine how much noriety your shrine, or whatever could get to have a toenail, beak or wing feather from St. Seagul in your posession.
Comment by Carol — March 25, 2013 @ 7:56 pm
Indeed enshrined body parts….you can’t much more sacred than that. How sad it is to find so much reverence for a piece of wood, or a dismembered part…?
Comment by Errol — March 25, 2013 @ 11:09 pm
Now a little lightening roasted sea gull might be pretty tasty on a sandwich. Yumm, yum. But let’s get serious now. We have probably disected this bird about enough. While satire can be fun and enjoyable, it can also get some points across. Perhaps we have called attention to a few things with these notes we have been sending. For example – lightening hitting the Vatican, not the first time by the way. Did these strikes occur at times of particlar significence which may indicate the anger of God at the growing apostacy of Rome? What about the so-called prophecies of Malachy, the 10th century Bishop of Amargh, Ireland, as explained in the Book, Petrus Romanus by Tom Horn and Chris Putnam, or maybe a different view in a video by Mike Hoggard? Since good and evil are sometimes indicated by the colors of white and black, would it be OK to indulge in something with a tinge of evil associated with it? If not can you get a special indulgence, (maybe paying a few bucks for it?) to partake of this wrong? If you can’t and you do indulge, are you commiting a venial sin that can be taken care of in a Saturday night confession or at least with a bit more time in purgatory, or is it a MORTAL sin that would consign you to Hell forever? The Church of Rome is filled with wild heresies and apostacies of all kinds. She is the mother of harlots and abominations as the Book of Revelation tells us. The pope approves all these heresies and abominations, otherwise he would come out and denounce them. The history of the Roman Church is full to the brim of wickedness and leading people in the broad way that leads them into destruction. I referred to Van Impe and company, which includes Hal Lindsey, and The Left Behind folks and their likes. Most of them speak very highly of the pope and his apostate church. Include in this also the whole emerging church crowd and we will all be Romanists before long if they have their way. The fish hats, by the way, go all the way back to the priests of ancient Babel, to the time following Nimrod the mighty hunter against the Lord. In regards to St. Seagul, cutting him up in little pieces and sending his parts around the world is simply illustrating the practice of the bones and relics of the Saints (so-called pantheon of cannonized saints turned into little gods) found in RC churches and shrines around the world, worshiped and adored by their faithful followers. We could go on and on with this but let me remind you of what the Book of Revelation says about all those entrapped in this system of Rome. If you are truly saved by the Grace of God alone, through Faith alone, by Christ alone, by the Scripture alone, to God alone be the Glory. If this is your experience and you are still in the church of Rome, Revelation says, “Come out of her, my people.” Today, now, is the time to make that decision – take a stand and come out.

Malachy (aka Malarkey, Bishop of AhMyGosh, Iowa) predicted in Peter’s Romanish Farmer’s Almanac, “Black Birds are full of wickedness as they eats your taters!”

Another foul, religious joke…

Who is that bird that is sitting atop yonder chimney? That bird is a mallemuck*, a foolish, silly critter that flies the wide expanse of the seas. He is a large petrel, fulmer, albatross, or other oceanic bird. How often we display the mallemuck nature we all have within us as is seen by many of our comments on these e-mails. I have to admit, I like some satire and a good play on words. SamWise, you wise guy, you have a good play on words there, but I may have more to say later. Not quite the response I was looking for, but the responses may still come.
*See definition in dictionary. You now have a new word and maybe we should it to Bill O’Riley for his word of the day.

Come on folks, let’s not be gullible about this. Get it out of your gullet, and go on with life.
Comment by Errol — March 30, 2013 @ 12:29 pm
Ahem, “the gullible gullet.” That sounds like it has possibilities, Angus.
Comment by Carol — March 30, 2013 @ 5:33 pm
Depending on which way the wind blew, there were some denominations that were waiting on the direction of the smoke to know not when the pope was chosen, but which doctrine to follow….and a few confused souls were about to take this seagull and use him in an offering….they had their shawls and some were meditating to see if their vision matched the ancient fathers prophecy…some clowns were debating on which way the wind blew
Comment by Carol — March 30, 2013 @ 5:34 pm
oh, my computer went phooey….and posted my previous post before I was finished…..this is what happens when doctrines and religions are mixed….
Comment by Carol — April 2, 2013 @ 9:22 pm
They found in a box of jujubes one piece shaped like the Virgin Mary…indeed these miracles keep happening….it’s now on display…seriously….looking for miracles in a box of candy….
Comment by Errol — April 3, 2013 @ 2:59 pm
How sweet it must be! But in the end it will turn out to be bitter-sweet, or rather very, very bitter. Yes, God performs miracles, sometimes through his servants, such as Moses and some of the prophets of old, through Jesus and his apostles, sometimes through the prayers of his people. False miracles are performed through deceitful prophets, teachers, etc., whether in Roman, Orthodox, or Protestant churches. I hardly think that a piece of candy shaped like the virgin Mary or a little jelly dropped on a piece of toast creating a similar shape could be considered a miracle. Superstition reigns supreme in the RC Church. Perhaps the greatest and most perpetual false miracle to be found today is in the celebration of the Eucharist – that miracle being known as transubstantiation, a miracle nothing short of blasphemy. Those who are deceived thereby are not wise.
