Papal Pornography

If one thought the papal interviews couldn't get much worse than what they had been, they regrettably err.  Today's is so depraved that parents may be advised not to discuss this in the presence of small children.  He whined and complained about the media (while giving an interview to the media - go figure), lamenting their tendency to report unpleasant news, "even if they are true".  He likens the reporting of "nasty" things to coprophilia.  If you never heard that term before, please be advised that until two hours ago, I never did either.  Apparently neither did the creators of the blogger platform on which I write this blog, for its spell-checker is prompting me to change it.  I will give the wikipedia definition now.

Coprophilia (from Greek κόπρος, kópros—excrement and φιλία, philía—liking, fondness), also called scatophilia or scat (Greekσκατά, skatá-feces),[1] is the paraphilia involving sexual arousal and pleasure from feces.

He went on to say that "since people have a tendency towards the sickness of coprophagia, a lot of damage can be done".

Coprophagia!  Another term, similar to the first but not quite identical.  What is that?  Again we look to wikipedia.

Coprophagia /kɒp.rə.ˈf.i.ə/[1] or coprophagy /kəˈprɒfə/ is the consumption of feces

So people "have a tendency" toward this, uh, dietary predilection?  Dear readers, when is the last time that was served at your dinner tables?  When was the last time you saw that featured at your favorite restaurants? When is the last time that crossed your minds?  I didn't think so!

Two things need to be discussed.  To liken journalism to a perverted sexual fetish is nothing short of the sin of slander against those journalists who take seriously their responsibilities to inform the public of current affairs.  One might think the pope is taking a swipe at those of us who shine the light on his evident designs to undermine Holy Mother Church in all manners possible.  It's worth noting that Father Spadaro accuses those who criticize Amoralis Lamentia as "being influenced by the devil".  Hmm.  Do I detect a coordination of talking points here?

But what is behind the pope's decision to use vulgarity?  As I mentioned earlier, I never even heard of these terms, and I'm not particularly naive.  Several others never did, either.  So what gives?  Who would even think to use terms that describe perverted practices?  One of my friends pointed out that such language would be quite familiar to the "gay community", that is, those who regularly engage in such perversions as part and parcel of their lives.  With whom is the pope surrounding himself?  One who lies with dogs arises with fleas.

This is the Vicar of Christ who is now not only spouting thinly-veiled heresy - now he's uttering vulgarity to boot.  As I said before regarding the cardinals and the dubia, let us pray that the course of this papacy changes and soon.

Correction - Today is not the first time such vulgarity spewed from the pope's mouth.  Almost word for word he uttered the same bile in 2013.  What is filling the mind of the Vicar of Christ?  Please, Lord, awaken us from this surreal nightmare!

  1. Somehow it is not surprising. Very sad though.

  2. With respect, calling today's bizarre rantings "vulgarity" is an insult to vulgarity. :) You may or not be aware that the Pope brought up the "copro" thing in an earlier interview a few years ago. The disgusting practice would appear to be often on the Pope's mind. Maybe it's an Argentinian thing (but that would probably be an insult to Argentinians).

    1. Well, he is warming up to Luther, who also had the same obsession with all things fecal.

  3. This is just way TOO BIZARRE! What kind of a man even THINKS THESE THINGS???!!! God help us, has the chair of Peter been hijacked by alien demons??? What do you do with a Pope, a Vicar of Christ who spouts off grotesque utterings such as THIS???!!! Please Lord, help us to figure out how to get him to STOP!!!

  4. My stupid dog used to do this disgusting thing (but seems to have outgrown it).

    Yet I did not go around telling friends and acquaintances about it (I am sure they are glad about that).

    As to why PF mentions this... uh, "practice" - who the Purgatory knows? I have come to the conclusion whenever I see that he has given another interview - my first reaction is simply to wince.

    1. Hey Catechist Kev, MY stupid dog used to do this, until one day, not knowing what else to do, I explained the fact that I could put up with a lot, but that was not going to be acceptable. She stopped.
      Of course, each time she went to do it, I yelled "EW!", so that might have had something to do with it.
      Either way, if my dog was ever elected pope, I feel sure she would have the good sense not to use terms that describe such odious behavior in a much too graphic way, to scandalize the Catholic faithful.

    2. Hi Kathleen,

      Thanks for the reply. Yeah, we love our Yellow Lab - he was fairly youngish whenever he would doo that (see what I did there?).

      Anyway, back on topic. Here is an interesting take on PF's use of the... stuff:

  5. I knew that this particular perversion exists but it is largely limited to a particular segment of the population. I take it that nobody dares tell the pope that this practice is not even known about by most normal people.

    1. But it may become normalized! After all, other things, once so hideous that they weren't spoken of in polite company, are now common and sanitized and to speak against them now is, you know, intolerant!

    2. Dymphna, I had never even HEARD of such a perversion, nor the term that described this vile act. I can pretty much assure you, no mentally or spiritually stable person would come out with this in an interview, let alone even think of it! He may even need prayers of deliverance..........SERIOUSLY!!!! The demonic influence/mental instability is beginning to show.

  6. On the bright side, although he is referring to it in a vulgar and scandalous manner, at least he isn't condoning it yet.

    1. Yet. Just have to 'accompany' those involved.

  7. Eating shit. Clearly he is of the devil, theological gymnastics be
    dammed. The seat is empty.

  8. Cut him some slack. Probably a term bantered about in his circles. But then, who am I to judge?

  9. What a disgusting, vile, uncouth, classless, abhorring thing for ANYONE to say, let alone a pope of the Catholic Church! Instead of chastising "fake news", he ought to remove the log out of his own eye by offering clarification to the perceived disinformation contained within Amoris Laetitia. #AnswerTheDubia
