Quote of the Day...

I usually never do this kind of thing, but there was a comment on this article that I just think is "the bees knees." By "Rev. Anthony Kiem":

In imperial Rome gladiators in the Coliseum greeted the emperor who watched them dueling with lions with this farewell cry,”Caesar, Morituri te Salutant, Caesar”. Today I say the same thing to you, my dear Sarah. “Moriturus te salutat, Sarah carissima!”

I am an old Catholic priest 89 years old diagnosed with prostate cancer. God comforts me as he did regarding old lady Anna in the Jerusalem temple. He permits me to watch you fending left and right to save free America from dark powers. Fight as Jean d’Arc for the Constitution, for morality that condemns abortion, homosexuality, cheating, lying, invasion of personal life, condemnation of the accused presumed to be guilty before legal hearing, capitulation before superior force even this force is destructive, bankrupting a whole nation…

The current TEA PARTY is promoting these time-honored values, and by going with them you deserve the blessings of God. I wish you GOOD LUCK. Now as Simeon and Anna, I can chant, “Nunc dimittis servum tuum Domine (Now you can dismiss your servant, o Lord.”

My posting it here doesn't mean that I agree with everything the dude said. I just thought that was kind of neat.

That was the bees knees. I’ve never been Catholic, but there are several priests I like a lot for their courage in speaking out. One said during sermon, “Political correctness is evil. Things are either correct or incorrect, right or wrong.” And another time, when Iraq was first going bad, “If you think this one (Bush) is doing a bad job, just imagine if we picked the other guy.” (Algore) Not everybody laughed, but I did.
