EWTN Scandal?

American Papist wrote this interesting post last week:

To be fair, Fr. Francis Mary Stone has not admitted to having a sexual encounter--so I'll reserve judgement here. I wonder what Mother Angelica would say--especially since she would regularly lambaste the more liberal end of the Catholic Church.

Regardless, this is the one show that I would watch on EWTN from time to time. So I'll keep the good father in my prayers.

Finland Student Kills

From the NY TIMES:

The YouTube video, titled “Jokela High School Massacre — 11/7/2007,” was posted Tuesday by a user called Sturmgeist89.

Set to a song called “Stray Bullet” by the industrial rock band KMFDM, the video shows a photo of a building that appears to be Jokela High School. The photo breaks apart to reveal a red-tinted picture of a man pointing a handgun at the camera.

“I am prepared to fight and die for my cause,” read a posting by a user of the same name. “I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of human race and failures of natural selection.”

Hours after the massacre, the user’s account was suspended.

Lyrics to various songs by KMFDM, including “Stray Bullet,” were also posted on a Web site maintained by Eric Harris, one of the two gunmen in the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado.

The insanity of these acts continue to stem from milennials seeing the world as a senseless place of chaos. Here the student looked to rectify this situation by eliminating those who are "disgraces of the human race."

The sad thing is that some grasp on tightly to a tradition and adhere to it but are healthy and able to integrate that well into their young lives. Others, especially the pathological, end up causing more chaos in their nihlistic way of life where nothing matters anymore.
