(SIC)Posted: September 23, 2010
In light of Goose Gate 2010 I’ve been given a bird’s eye (so to speak) view of the state of public discourse. At least the anonymous online variety. And it’s neither pretty nor spelled correctly. Below, I’ll share some of the comments that I’ve encountered that relate to me and the church. But first, rather than type it over and over again I’m giving one giant (SIC) to cover the multitude of grammatical sins. Of course this list doesn’t include the talk radio program where I was called a “goose-hugging liberal.” But at least they pronounced my name correctly. Enjoy!
“You guys hunting on the beach hunting should have complained that because you’re Catholic, you were offended there was an Episcopal service going on! Then the other hunter could play the Atheist and file for a law that eliminates all religeous services from the beach because it’s offensive and an act of forcing religon on you while hunting!!”
From the younger of the two hunters involved: “I’m glad he registered our dirty looks, wasn’t sure if he could seem ‘um while sniffing the other parishioners farts… Do they do winter “Preach on the Beaches.” I’d love to have another shot of me in something alittle winter camo-ie!!!!”
“I am guessing the Rev knew their was hunting that day and did this deliberately. If someone asks you Rev, remember it’s wrong to lie”
“Please let the Rev. know, his soap box is rotting beneath him. Know your facts and pick your battles…”
“Just looking at that blurry photo of the two hunters taken from the good Reverend’s ‘alter’. Looks to me like he has goblet, and what looks like a carafe of sacramental wine’. I hope it’s not wine. Public drinking is an abomination.”
“You, Reverend Schenk, should be ashamed of yourself for your irresponsible and ignorant comments.”
