(Breitbart.com)   Can you BELIEVE that Huffington Post didn't bother to even ACKNOWLEDGE the canonization of two Popes? No? That's probably because they clearly did in no less than 5 stories, as Breitbart commenters helpfully pointed out   (breitbart.com) divider line 46

"Weird," subby?  I admire your still-strong faith in humanity.

It is weird...that Breitfart hasn't deleted that libtard's post
 
2014-04-29 08:49:39 AM  
Yeah, but they didn't end each article with "...and blessed is the Father, Amen.", SO IT DOESN'T COUNT!

I'm surprised they're not biatching Andrew didn't make the saint cut.

Lionel Mandrake: It is weird...that Breitfart hasn't deleted that libtard's post



That *is* weird.  Considering the Breitbarters I personally know, they typically consider any facts presented to be a personal insult.

I enjoyed the pop-up ad for a subscription to their e-newsletter headlined, "You Deserve the Truth." It should continue, "But when the truth doesn't match up with your preconceived notions, try Breitbart, instead."

Right wing funstuff.


Why didn't [group we hate] do [responsible thing]?
*ignores all the times they do*

You can do that with "the administration" and "investigate Benghazi"
or "Muslims" and "condemn 9/11"
or "Obama" and "got to church"

There's basically no end to these stories, and... it's just really dumb.

So are the two new saints patron saints of something? I have no idea how saints work--if "patron saint of X" is an official designation or something that happens informally over time.

But I'm assuming that all the good stuff has already been taken, and now they're down to stuff like "Patron Saint of Adobe Reader downloads," or "Patron Saint of those little Allen wrenches that come with flat-pack furniture."

Patron Saint of flatulence resulting from excessive fast food consumption?

Or would that be Pope Sidious?

He can be patron saint of poor always-online game launches.

I hope not.
1) Breitbart post rage article.
2) rebuttal by those with an IQ above room temperature
3) "OH Yeah" response by Breitbart dezeen
4) repeat steps 2 and 3 until Breitbart has huge ad revenue

If a "news" web site I read either deliberately lied or was just totally ignorant and deliberately obtuse over something as petty as whether or not a rival "news" web site had reported on a pretty insignificant story - I might begin to ask myself, "what else are they wrong about?"

But that's the reason I don't read Brietbart,... Or Huffington.

I was watching the local news this weekend (I live in the Northeast, so a lot of Catholics meant this was classed as local news). They interviewed a couple of people in a local church and they were delighted that someone got to be a saint in their lifetime. Unlike those saints from hundreds of years ago, finally someone from modern times.

So I checked.

I checked, and the last Pope (Benedict XVI) made 45 people a saint in 7 years. John Paul II (I'm reliably informed the II does not stand for George and Ringo) sainted 110 people in 26 years. 

Now: I'm not asking for people to know every detail of what they're into (be it one branch of one religion, soap operas, reciting World Cup or World Series or World War 2 facts). Personally, I like Star Wars but I couldn't name all the pod-racers in Episode 1. Not knowing everything about a subject you profess to have an interest in is OK; but there has to be a bar here. Being interviewed by the news as a person of a particular denomination that makes people saints and not knowing there has been anyone sainted in your life when there have been over 150 people since 1978? It'd be like me not knowing who was named Skywalker in Star Wars films (Shmi, Anakin, Luke and Leia ...although Leia took the name Organa and Luke didn't take the name Lars). Don't know if  Padmé changed her last name after marrying, but she kept the marriage a secret so I consider her an Amidala.

I went off on a tangent, but I know this basic stuff that's central to the whole idea of Star Wars. And seeing as making saints is a pretty big deal in being Catholic, and the news reporters found two people that didn't even know of one saint in their life (never mind that there have been dozens and dozens of them in their adult lives), it's not shaking my view that the religious aren't the keenest and clued-in group of people that keep up with stuff.

Could be either one.  If someone was a shoemaker before he got religion or whatever he did, he might naturally become known as the patron of shoemakers.  Or if someone has a problem, prays to a saint, and the problem is resolved, the saint might become known the patron of people suffering from that disease or problem or whatever.

People who revere the complicit and/or actual rapists of pre pubescent boys (and, to be fair, probably some girls), aren't often overly concerned with reality and facts.

I heard he was converting Muslims to Christianity and stopping women from having abortions until the Obamacorp gunned his ass down, but only after Breitbart decapitated several of them with a plastic spork.

I'm not aware of the Huff Post doing anything like this. They also publish comments that are critical to themselves.

I just did a bit of research on that Brietbart fellow. It seems he was instrumental in setting up the Huffington Post when Arianna was still a Republican. There's two things I would never have thought possible. And a third is that Brietbart started out as a liberal.

Huh. Weird. They quickly got rid of my comment, where I only insinuated that they are dumb and amateurish journalists, but they are leaving up the one, where I outright call them liars.
The tempting conclusion is that they see themselves as smart and co petent liars, and they don't care who knows it, Q.E.D., so I'm done.
