THE SANITY OF AUTHENTIC CATHOLIC TEACHING (vs. Diana's drivel)
As you have seen, I have pretty much just reposted Bert & Ernie's, er I mean, Diana & Ernie's drivel about Kiko the Prophet without comment since, for intelligent people, none was needed.
No half way thinking person could confuse the baptismal call to prophesy with actually assuming the title of Prophet and elevating oneself to the level of a Moses or Ezekiel.
Diana's* idiocy that in speaking of the baptismal call to prophesy without assuming the actual title of "Prophet" is somehow a descent into symbolism, is, well, just idiocy...which is why I simply reposted "her" comment without even so much as an LOL or an SMH.
In other words, I assume the intelligence of this readership.
However, when we get over the LOL's and SMH's, what "Diana" usually gives us is a catechetical moment: an opportunity to contrast the sanity of authentic Catholic teaching with the screwy exegesis and catechetical contortions of the heavily medicated "Diana's" and "Ernie's".
I was hoping to get to the "sanity of authentic Catholic teaching" today in a more complete way than the few comments I've been able to insert into the slimy mess that passes for Kiko's theology a la "Diana & Ernie", when I received a comment where someone did it for me. So here it is. And thanks Rol M.
* For those who are new to the blog, "Diana" is the anonymous default neocatechumenal spokesperson for the neocatechumenal Archbishop Apuron (since he won't speak for himself).
