HATE RADIO FOR JESUS

EEK St. Joseph pray for me the things I go through for you. I rose at SEVEN DAMN THIRTY to represent Our Lady of Good Counsel on a radio talk show, only to be put on hold and hear Paul Harvey and ads for Sean Hannity. The host was nice enough, but the only caller I had the pleasure of speaking to criticized me for "bragging" about how my church was diverse (what I said was "young and old, gay and straight, black and white and Asian and Latino, cradle Catholics and new converts like me"), and that that was probably why the archdiocese was closing us. Of course I knew which word he'd battened onto, but fortunately I had Harold Baquet's editorial on my desk, so I mentioned it and said Harold had pointed out that fifty years ago, his and other African-American families would not have been welcome at OLGC, and it was a shame that the caller wished to return to such times. He hung up.

I also heard one caller pronounce "Obama" like "O'Balmer," so from now on I fear I will always think of him as an Irish mortician.

I HAZ BIN ON HATE RADIO FOR JESUS.

[ETA: You can hear the interview here. And yes, I've e-mailed to let them know my name is not spelled "Poppie."]
