Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Test Markets Campaign Ads to Trump Voters

This is freaking hilarious. Just brilliant.  It’s on YouTube through Hulu,com

The premise is that a group of Trump voters test market political ads for Donald
Trump. The ads are completely absurd and are ridiculously funny by themselves,
but the reactions of the Trump voters raises the ante….

too many hearts
are hardened, are closed
to the suffering
the poor, the misplaced
in this troubled world
when they should be open
regardless of emotional cost
for hearts are gateways
to our humanity
it is hearts of compassion
through which
God speaks

The Parable of the Two Good Guys

Today’s homily is sharp and will make you smile!

The Smiling Pilgrim

*Below is an excellent modern day perspective on the “Parable of the Good Samaritan”.  With our divisions in Christianity, attitudes that create polemic environments, and complexity of narratives/interpretations we sometimes miss common sense and the whole spirit of the Gospel.  Hopefully this piece helps awaken you from within the rabbit hole.*


A young man who knew his Bible, could cite chapter and verse, was sent by his pastor to question this new teacher in town, name of Jesus, to see if he was “sound”. “Jesus,” the lad was told to ask, “how do I get eternal life?”

“That looks like a Bible you’ve got there, young fella” Jesus said.

Waving the black book to which Jesus had pointed, the lad declared, “Yep, it’s the inspired and inerrant Word of God, infallible and perfect in every way.”

“Sorry?” Jesus said.

“It’s the inerrant Word of God,” the lad repeated.

The way I

loved you


you off–

my desire

my lust


your hate.

Yet still

I fought

for you



sought to

rip your


from your
