And this doesn't have a hero tag?

For some odd reason, it does. I think we need to hit the mods or whoever and have them rectify the situation (no sexual innuendo intended).

The man was screaming and shouting and was clearly having difficulties facing the Church at the moment," he said.
My nomination for understatement of the year.

Father Henry McCann was saying 1000 GMT Mass

1000 GMT Mass?

I take it he made baby Jesus cry?

I know what 1000 GMT is. I just think its mighty specific.

I f#cking hate the catholic church. They're against birth controll, divorce, sex in any form, yet it is perfectly acceptable for their priest to scar an innocent child by making them "suck off in the name of God". In that aspect, they are just as bad as any muslim. Where Islam teaches conquest through violence, catholicism teaches conquest of innocent alter boys through molestation. If Bush was really serious about protecting our children, he'd forget about censoring various media and just nuke the f#cking Vatican.

Didn't you know, Psycho-Jay? The pope never dies.

Besides, it's not ALL Catholic molesters that get cought. After all, what the media doesn't know can't hurt you.

That guy must really hate nativity statues. I wonder if garden gnomes also offend him.

But seriously, it is not surprising that this happened in Northern Ireland, which has more Grade "A" Asshats per square mile than any place on Earth.

This has 'Monty Python Sketch' written all over it.

Maybe he thought the line had been crossed and some idolitry was going on.

Wielding! Might as well say welding.

was he trying to steal the sheep?

Ah, it's Father Jack. He likes cake.

Oh, this happens at least twice a month here.
