It’s a bizarre story from Ideal.es that I hadn’t heard before- a local gynaecologist has repaired a stained glass window at Turre church, and inserted a picture of Jesus in Mary’s womb. Dr. Blas Carrillo, local of the town and a gynaecologist, had the idea and went ahead with it. Whether our overly rotund priest was informed of this before he did it, I do not know. Dr Blas says it’s the first time in Continue reading Turre Church commits blasphemy – shows Jesus in Mary’s womb!
“Homosexuality is a deficiency… which can and must be cured by appropriate medical treatment” said Fernando Sebastián in an interview shortly after taking up office. “It is of no use denying this nor getting angry about it… I suffer from hypertension, and must take pills, I recognise this, and I have sought proper medical attention to bring me back to normality” he continued when asked if he thought his comments would provoke discussion. “With all due Continue reading New Spanish Cardinal reckons being gay is curable
The priest of San Luis de Sabinillas (Málaga) has royally annoyed his parishioners by banning them from crying at funerals, and changing the sad CD for a Christmas pop carol hit. Father Nicolás Timpu has also been commenting on the possible reasons for early deaths during the funeral mass. “Probably a sinner” he told mourners as he buried a 25 year-old man who had been run over, “best place for him”. At the funeral of Continue reading Mad priest bans crying at funerals, changes funeral march for carols
Remember last years “Ecce homo” fun? When an old dear decided the mural of her church needed restoring, did it herself, it looked like a muppet and the original mural turned out to be a priceless work of art? And then loads and loads of tourists started turning up to gawk at it? Anyway, in a further blow to whatever belief we had left in Humanity, the Catholic priest at that Church has just been Continue reading Eccehomo priest nabbed for running off with the cash
The new priest at Adra, one Juan Daniel López (not the new priest in Maria, who recently flipped and called his parishioners “heretics” before telling several rambling stories about who’d done what with whom – before being saved by the lynch mob by the Guardia) has offered his poorer parishioners the chance to do odd jobs around the church instead of paying for their childrens catechism. (Catecismo -catechism- is the Catholic session of lessons before Continue reading Can’t pay your catechism? Clean the church instead!
The Catholic Church is advising lovelorn singles to direct their 14/02 requests for love to St Raphael, rather than St Valentine. Over the years St Valentine has come incorrectly to be associated with finding love, the Church says. He is the patron saint for those who have already found their soulmate. St Raphael is the patron saint for happy encounters and it is to him those fearing the Valentine’s post should properly direct their prayers. Continue reading St. Valentines
A bitter battle has broken out between the Catholic Church and the Spanish Data Protection Agency, one that promises to redefine how one of Europes most Catholic countries views the Vatican. The issue started two years ago when a group of apostates complained to the Spanish Data Protection Agency that the Catholic Church refused to delete their personal information. All births, marriages, divorces and deaths, along with other “sensitive” information is recorded and kept by Continue reading Catholic Church:let my apostates go!
