SDG

We need you in Rome, Jimmy!

Inocencio

Trolls pay attention that is the sound of Glamdring rattling.

Brian John Schuettler

Does that mean I can't talk about hobby horses? I'll chalk this up to post-traumatic stress disorder.

John E

I think with all this seriousness lately, we need a photo-caption post.

Tim Brandenburg

Well, hobby horses were historically condemned by the Church, but after V2, when See of Peter became vacant, hobby horses became more prevalent, and the Church has subsequently refused to condemn the heresy of hobby horse-ism, forcing anti hobby horse-ites to withdraw into their own communities. The Church needs a hobby horse cleasing I say!

Tim Brandenburg

That last post was a joke, in case it was unclear from the context.

Marty

This discussion fails to address whether hobby horses should be allowed into the sanctuary when the Mass is said in Latin, or whether they can even be blessed on the Feast of St. Francis.

bill912

Since hobby horses are traditionally made out of wood, they should be blessed on the Solemnity of St. Joseph.

Rob in Maine

If a hobby horse looses it's yarn tail, will it get it back in heaven? And don't try to tell me they don't have souls!

Mary Kay

Rob, they don't have soles, but they probably have shoes.

bill912

Just pin it back on, Rob...No, wait; that's donkeys. Never mind.

David B.

Hey, does that mean the people who often mention the Lord of the Rings are banned too?

If so, then farewell, my friends! ;-(

Kris

Knowing there would be humorous responses to this post, I dared to view the comments. Needless to say, I was not dissapointed. Thanks for adding lightness to the day.

Reminds me of a Jimmy Buffett quote--"If we weren't all crazy we'd go insane"

bill912

No, no, David B. It's *hobby horses* you can't ride around here. Jimmy said nothing about not riding eagles.

John

So... John Dominic Crossan is officially ejected, along with the (hobby)horse he rode in on.

Margaret

What about Holly Hobby?

What about the Horse of a Different Color?

David B.

Bill,

Phew! I was worried that Jimmy would next ban wizards.

Esau

"This discussion fails to address whether hobby horses should be allowed into the sanctuary when the Mass is said in Latin, or whether they can even be blessed on the Feast of St. Francis."

Actually, there was an old movie called "The Small Miracle". It is about an orphan boy named Peppino who lives in Assisi and who seeks permission from the pope to allow his ailing donkey (Violetta) into the crypt of Saint Francis in the hopes of curing him. What's amazing is that this was one of few films allowed to be shot in the Vatican.

Esau

"Hey, does that mean the people who often mention the Lord of the Rings are banned too?"

Isn't Brego a hobby horse??? (only kiddin'!)

Brian Day

Does that mean no more mention of H.P. Lovecraft?

Realist

And no more Battle Stars? Darn and I was about to tape the most recent episode.

Does lumping together the 25 contemporary historic Jesus scholars count as "hobby horses?

And I do like the "say your piece and move on" rule although that typically gets you a "troll label".

Esau

bill912,
I think our friend (wink, wink) is back!
Any suggestions???

bill912

"Any suggestions?"

They shoot horses, don't they?

Inocencio

He just hasn't tired of riding his hobby horse yet. Jimmy is nothing if not patient but the writing is on the wall.

Take care and God bless,
Inocencio
J+M+J

Esau

"He just hasn't tired of riding his hobby horse yet. Jimmy is nothing if not patient but the writing is on the wall."

-- Seems more like a 'mule' than a horse!
(apologies, I couldn't resist!)

God Bless All!

Puzzled

I have no intention of violating the rules, so if it becomes that case that I do, please let me know privately, so that I can immediately correct the situation.

Realist

I see "hobby horsing" the Realist continues. "Mule on" brothers!!!! I am going to follow the "say your piece and move on" rule. Let us see how well the "orthodoxers" do with the same rule.

Bierce

HAH! There you Catholics go again! Pulling all of these false doctrines out of the Holy Book of Da Rulz that are clearly not written!

Brian Day

Bierce,

Heh. You didn't go and actually read Da Rulz, did ya?

Clearly it is written!

Mary

Please note the "principally" in the rule. If you talk about Lovecraft AND Tolkien AND Battlestar Galactica -- you are not talking principally about any ONE thing.

Mary Kay

Does this mean that we're back to beating a rocking horse?

bill912

Does this mean I have to stop quoting Spock ("Logic is little bird chirping in meadow") and Chekov ("And I am the Czar of all the Russians!)?

Tim J.

"Does lumping together the 25 contemporary historic Jesus scholars count as "hobby horses?"

It should.

For the sake of simplicity, and for those new to JA.O, here is a short synopsis of Realist's comments on just about any subject;

1) The Bible is nothing more a collection of "faith stories" with no basis in historical fact. He knows this because the Jesus Seminar says so, and they are infallible in matters of doctrine.

2) The *Official Version* of Church history is a lie made up by the hierarchy so that they can continue scamming all of us.

3) Miracles - that is supernatural events of any kind - are impossible because in reality, nothing exists outside of nature. This means we have to re-think our idea of "God".

3) "Catholic" is a word with no fixed meaning... this means that all Catholics are equal, especially dissidents. There is, of course, no absolute Truth, but the *Official Catholic Version* of anything is ESPECIALLY rejected.

None the less, Realist assures us that he REALLY IS a Catholic, which is like me insisting that I am REALLY a committed Communist, even though I think communism gets everything wrong and that Karl Marx never existed, but was an invention of Joseph Stalin.

Did I leave out anything? Wild dogs? Ancient astronauts?

Jared Weber

Tim J: The only thing you left out was the song.

Jesus isn't God-so-He-doesn't-really-know-me-well-enough to love me,

This I know,

For John Crossan tells me so.

Do we actually have to read DA RULZ, or can we follow the spirit of DA RULZ REVISED, aka DA RULZ II?
