As many of you know, the National Catholic Register recently fired Mark Shea. After his firing, Shea went on Facebook to allege various accusations most thought were mere conspiracy theories. Shea wrote:
The Register’s donor base is those folks, people who hate Francis and think Trump is awesome…The Register has to please these people and when they demand me as a human sacrifice, they have to do it or the money goes away. The excuse was my lack of charity. But the *reason* was because that mob hates Francis and love[s] Trump and I could not be tolerated.
Many laughed off Shea’s claims, figuring them to be sour grapes. However, as it turns out, Shea had only revealed the tip of the iceberg. A-CNN’s Don Persiflage was granted an exclusive interview with Mr. Trump wherein the GOP nominee explains exactly what happened. Here is the transcript of the interview, which was aired earlier today on “The Deal with Don”:
This just in from the front offices of the Vatican: The Holy Father has finally announced his decision to create, as first woman Cardinal of the Holy Catholic Church, Ms. Hillary R. Clinton.
As word started to spread this morning of this truly spirit-filled and revolutionary action by the Holy Father, the Vatican hallways became busily alive with enthusiastic ebullience. Although it was expected that at some point during his papacy Pope Francis would create a woman Cardinal the short list of candidates was always a mystery. The choice of Ms. Clinton was however, always highly suspect since she was so active in international women and children welfare projects. Ms. Clinton’s interest in health care for women and especially in the areas of contraception, sterilization and abortion are without precedent and her constant effort to limit child birth and children so that they would avoid being unwanted has long been consistent with Pope Francis’ global view of responsible sustainable development.
After months of debate and controversy, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced plans to redesign the $20 bill to include the face of a woman (at least for the moment) who represents "everything America means to the world today".
Lew confirmed that Andrew Jackson will move from the face of the $20 to make way for pop superstar, Miley Cyrus—a decision which supporters of Jackson contend means that a certified moron has now been selected to grace the face of a U.S. banknote.
Rumor has it that the buzz pervading through the Vatican corridors concerns the formulation of a “New Name” for the Church! The modern hierarchy has been trying in different ways to reflect the true New Spirit of Vatican II and to celebrate how far the Church has progressed from the rigid old traditionalist past and now, finally, they think they have found a splendid solution.
The modernized and liberated Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in conjunction with the Pastoral Ecumenical Commission for unrestricted pantheism have been working on integrating doctrine with blended theologies and interfaith experiences.
The Vatican announced earlier this week that Pope Francis will wash the feet of young refugees during Mandatum of Holy Thursday this year. It wasn’t clear if non-Catholics would be among the refugees participating at an asylum center in Castelnuovo di Porto, north of Rome, but women will almost certainly be involved.
In a surprise announcement, Vatican official, Archbishop Rino Fishyello, later revealed that there will be at least one pair of Catholic male feet involved in the ceremony: those belonging to Hollywood heartthrob, Leonardo DiCaprio.
“Leonardo was raised a Roman Catholic,” said Fishyello, “and like most Catholics these days, he isn’t particularly religious. But he’s not an atheist, either…not that it would matter if he were, since Francis tells us atheists get to go to heaven too now.”
Shamokin, Pa — Fr Rodney Little, newly appointed pastor of Blessed Paul VI Parish, said an entire Mass last Sunday without once using the word "God.”
"I've been working on it for a long time," said a beaming Father Little, wiping his brow, "and I was finally able to pull it off."
When questioned, parishioners leaving the church had no idea that they had just been witnesses to history. “Really?” said one woman who identified herself as a Minister of Hospitality, “The good thing about Father Rod is that you would never know he is a priest. Like, he’s totally a regular guy. They should give him a raise”
In shocking news first reported a week ago, businessman Donald Trump has converted to Catholicism and has now declared his candidacy for Pope. Today's announcement coincides with critical statements Pope Francis made about Mr. Trump not being a Christian. Mr. Trump just held a rally outside of New York City. Although video is not available, A-CNN has just acquired the audio transcript which we are providing below:
Thank you….thank you. You know, when I first started this campaign, people didn’t believe me. First they said, he’s not converting, he’ll never convert. Then I converted. Then they said, he’ll never get baptized, he won’t want the water to mess up his hair. But then I got baptized. Then they said he won’t get confirmed, and I got confirmed. And then they said he’d never run for pope. Well here I am, and I’m running for Pope; and I’m doing very well I must say.
Pope Francis, the Humble One, has again stunned the world by announcing new Mysteries of The Rosary--The Mysteries of Mercy. "If Pope St. John Paul II can do it, so can I." The Merciful Mysteries highlight events in the life of Christ which teach us how to be merciful to one another. Conversion is not merciful. Telling people they are sinning is not merciful. There is nothing merciful in reminding everyone about rules, rules and more rules! Live and let live. Let your conscience by your guide. Just be nice!
