The World Cup of Bad Cardinals – nominations requestedPosted: 07 Jan 2019 04:07 PM PST
I don’t know, I turn on the phone each morning to see what spiritual nourishment the world has to offer me, and every day there’s another cardinal disgracing himself. If it isn’t Dolan cosying up to Joe Biden, or Napier praising Occasional-Cortex, the pro-abortion dancer with the part-time brain cells, it’s Rhino Marx bleating about a change in sexual morality.  The forgotten Marx brother.So, after hitting my head against the wall seven times (Biblical), I decided that the only way for us saved laymen to express our disgust was to run a World Cup of Bad Cardinals. Now, the  World Cup of Bad Hymns was a great success, except that Marty Haugen still hasn’t got in touch to thank me for his silver medal. We won’t have 64 entrants this time, just a maximum of 32, so we should get through the tournament more quickly. Remember that 1 in 12 of the Disciples was unsaved, and my estimate is that we’ll find a similar proportion of the 200+ cardinals in the same position. Obviously, I’m excluding Pope Francis, out of respect for the office he bears, and let’s leave McCarrick to rot in his beach house – he resigned from the College of Cardinals, anyway – but there are plenty more to choose from. Living ones only, though. “I think we’ve got this one sewn up!”In alphabetical order, I’ve got the following list of utter disgraces to the Catholic Church [updated]: Baldisseri, Becciu, Braz de Aviz, Coccopalmerio, Cupich, Danneels, De Kesel, Dew, Dolan, Farrell, Kasper, Mahony, Maradiaga, Marx, Napier, Nichols, Ouellet, Parolin, Ravasi, Schönborn, Sodano, Tagle, Tobin, Wuerl. So nominations are invited, either by comments to this blog post, or by replying to the Tweet. Closing date January 14th, after which we get started. Please, just give names, not biographies. Yes, yes, I know, this is a highly offensive ad hominem attack on the Princes of the Church, but, in the words of Terry-Thomas:  “You’re an absolute shower!”

    Oops, Martin isn’t a Cardinal but he’s right up there by being a total disgrace.
