A man shot at a priest during Mass yesterday. No, it wasn’t somebody losing it after one too many verses of “Shine Jesus, Shine.” I know that because this wasn’t a Catholic church, but a schismatic church of the Society of St. Pius X. Perhaps the irate man thought the priest wasn’t pronouncing his Latin correctly or wasn’t clanking the thurible against the chain correctly or something which the Lidless Eye types foam over.
- Father Gonzales said that Barder had attended Mass at the church “on and off” and that lately he sometimes did “strange things,” like “sitting in the back of the church wearing headphones, listening to something.”
Should I take the cheap shot and ask how he can tell Barder was acting strangely; he’s a Lefebvrite after all? Oh, I guess I just did.
