MooPig Church of the Beach Department :: "Catholicism"

The catholic Case for a New Strategy
Mixed Mashed Articles by Pat Darnell  |  Dec 7, 2014  |  Bryan TX

Generally we avoid discussions on religions. Doesn't that sound familiar? Almost all social networks post in their guidelines that discussion of liturgy and religion latency will not be tolerated. Then you have atheist groups that don't talk about religion, but actually do talk about religion... eh?

It is the end of the year and all our thoughts turn to our immortal selves, even though we are mortal. But anyway, what we believe seems to have bearing on our living conditions. Pedagogy dodgy, trite, trans-humanism, psycho babble, building maintenance, large salaries; seems a bit much for a non-taxed institutions, that there are more denominations of than there are grains of sand on the beach.

At present churches in the USA seem to have screws loose. I cannot find a church in Bryan TX that isn't heavy-handed pedagogy, starving financially, or stodgy dodgy. But that's me. I have always desired a church that has an architecturally significant building that houses exquisite melodies and is filled with edifying, profound Bible teachings.

We, the MooPig Church of the Beach Department are not going to take on the Catholic Church. NO way. Others are significantly invested in petitioning the Catholic Church to expand in some areas and to cut off branches of the vine in other areas of Christianity. We don't have to add to that. One of our faceBook friends, Annie Gottlieb, posted this article:

After the Future: Walker Percy's Postmodern Catholicism: "Elie quotes Dorothy Day, who somewhere said that the saint is the one who lives his life in a way that would make no sense if God did not exist. The logic of faith, is therefore, the obverse of what makes sense in the broader culture. What is rich is poor, and what is poor is rich. What is fullness in the one is emptiness in the other. The proud shall be humbled, the meek exalted. What is powerful in the world is weakness in the eyes of the Church, or should be. If the Church as Institution truly understood this and organized itself according to this logic, it would not look at all the way it does. And its spiritual authority and credibility would increase a hundredfold. The world longs for such a Church."

MooPig Church of the Beach editor, William Rathnistein, says, "We are entering the 'Efforts of the Generalists' in Post-Modern Pre-Revival Modern Pre-Quel Age' of pastors. They put on a show, speak in psychological terms, and rally large crowds under the banner of 'Abundant Living, and pass the collection plates.'"

According to today's article the "world longs for such a church." Not the one we just described but --
"...What is rich is poor, and what is poor is rich. What is fullness in the one is emptiness in the other. The proud shall be humbled, the meek exalted. What is powerful in the world is weakness in the eyes of the Church, or should be. If the Church as Institution truly understood this and organized itself according to this logic, it would not look at all the way it does..."
Therefore, we turn to “Burning Man” type stuff, and its counterpart, post-Modern multi-purpose, multi-use “Kit Churches’...” a couple of crucibles with stand-offish natures.

We are always committed when we start a new thing; and always uncover some revelations from our hospital beds. As often the case, our upstart, in-house discussions so far have invariably ended in fine strands of sifting Sand; like sand in an hour glass.

And, in the case of Joel Osteen, we say "Beware the Mullet."

We always include a conclusion at the end of our articles. We are hoping that you, dear readers, all seven of you, will at least read this bit of quantitative-subjectivity, if you do not read the rest of the article. Unfortunately, today, we seem to have lost our train of thought, and have strayed from our intended subject matter, post-Modern Catholicism. It's a bust.

MooPig Community Chest Department :: "A Community Garden"

Folks, we need Planet Saver Tactics...
Mixed Martial Articles by Pat Darnell  |  Dec 13, 2014  |  Bryan TX
[Picture LINK]

In 1979 a magazine called Mother Earth News published extensively about self-sufficiency on a five acre plot. It was my mantra. But five acres in those days in Chicago ... well, even back then that would have cost about $900,000 just for the land, and that is very conservative.

Any type of wetland conservation idea is needed now. We over-build into our natural water ways, until we start to experience floods and mud-slides. Architecture that is designed to augment the natural ways of things on planet earth should be "built" as designed. Community gardens would be included in the land development master plans. If it were not for "bottom-line" developers, we might have such places in our communities.

Most good ideas that would make the earth a less hostile environment are "deep six'd" in the final financial analysis, land has to be paid for. Watershed imbalance today is confounding communities all over the world.

The article we include today says to invite all people who are interested in community gardening, is the first step to:

MooPig Economic Summit Department :: "The Recovery"

A Time to Verify: a Time to Lie
Mixed Martial Articles by Pat Darnell  |  Dec 13, 2014  |  Bryan TX

It has come to the attention of MooPig Economic Summit Department writers that people in government office lie about economics. "We want to know the truth," said Ernst T. Bone, Editor-in-chief of the department. Don't take our word for it.

Republicans aligned with their funny economic strategy from the Reagan years seem to be the biggest spinners of economic haphazardry ... But,

The Obama Recovery Has Been Miles Better Than the Bush Recovery | Mother Jones: "Paul Krugman writes today about the dogged conservative claim that the current recovery has been weak thanks to the job-killing effects of Obamacare and Obama regulation and the generally dire effects of Obama's hostility to the business sector. But I think Krugman undersells his case. He shows that the current recovery has created more private sector jobs than the 2001-2007 recovery, and that's true. But in fairness to the Bush years, the labor force was smaller back then and Bush was working from a smaller base. So of course fewer jobs were created. What you really want to look at is jobs as a percent of the total labor force. "
