Liberal bloggers needed!

Liberal bloggers needed!

It looks like a conservative somehow snuck into the new liberal group blog bastion of the Huffington Post and he’s revealing all their secrets. Greg Gutfeld has put up the hysterically funny “HuffPo emergency Bush bash blog application.”

Do you often find yourself fantasizing about becoming a Huffpo blogger? Do you love to read other blogs, digest their info, and then expel pre-chewed nut-bag assumptions into a concerned and earnest post? If so, you might be perfect for this blog!

It’s one of those “Do you find yourself doing this…” questionnaires and some of the questions had me laughing out loud.

Caution: there’s some off-color humor in it and liberals won’t like it allan listen to the readings on their commute.

No way, says the US bishops’ conference. Don’t you know that they own the rights to the New American Bible, the official translation of Scripture for US Catholics, and thus you can’t quote even one verse without getting permission first?

I’ve run afoul of the USCCB licensing bureaucrats on this very blog before. I once had the temerity to make available a Word document of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal in an effort to help people understand the Liturgy better. No way, says the US bishops’ conference. We only publish these documents to make a buck on them, they say. These are only for the oligarchs and the privileged to peruse.

What do you say when those who claim to speak on behalf of the successors of the Apostles stand in the way of those who seek to build up the Body of Christ and spread the Word?

John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us.” Jesus replied, “Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us.” Mark 9:38-40

Uh oh, now I’ve quoted the Bible without permission. What fate will befall me?
