Dissident Legionary Parts Hair In Middle

Thornwood, NY–Speaking to an assembly of Legionary of Christ seminarians this week, Communications Director for the Legionaries Jim Fair expressed outrage over the most recent scandal to hit the fragile religious congregation when just last week Legionary priest Ronald Mckellen was caught on tape with his hair parted down the middle; a clear violation of the rules and regulations of the congregation. “It is an outrage! It is a scandal, scandal, scandal!” Fair screamed to reporters gathered late yesterday evening. “Is it a sign of the times…I can’t say. Is it a sign of the end…I dare not say.” It was just two years ago that the congregation was forced to acknowledge that its founder Marcial Maciel had fathered children in spite of his vow of celibacy. “The Maciel thing was one thing,” one seminarian said, with tears in his eyes, “but this…this is too much.”

    A clear violation of fashion sense too, lol. The Knights Templar used to have dungeons for this sort of thing, but that was the Middle Ages and now we handle this sort of thing with communications directors instead. :-)

      I think I’d take the dungeon over the communication directors. Communication Directors are scary.

    This blog altogether is idiotic. If it means to be a joke, it ends up being a mockery of the Catholic Church.

      Who let you online? It sounds far too enjoyable to me. Back to bread, water, and hairshirts for you!

      It mocks what is worthy of mocking. At least around here, it is Catholics mocking other foolish Catholics (usually) instead of the rest of humanity taking potshots at those Catholics that make the rest of us look like fools.

      Are you saying we shouldn’t laugh or joke because we are Catholics?

  • Elmtree

    Yes, this site is a mockery! Catholics need to be serious. Just look so much of religious art and photography. People are SERIOUS. Some even have frowny faces. Proof enough for me. 0>:(

    I thought they would just cover up a bad hair cut?

    Wow, I part my hair down the middle and I deal with the Legionars of Christ seminarians all the time. They never told me I’d be down in the dungon for it, in fact never a mention of it.
    I guess only if it’s one of their own, but for the rest of us it’s ok????
