From down the ages comes a common children’s game called “You-show-me-yours-I’ll-show-you-mine.” Surely, sweet reader, you never played it. But just as surely you have heard of it. After all, it does still exist. It comes now with upgrades.
What was once a forbidden pastime among prepubescent kids has been reimagined for young adults by cultivated minds at Georgetown University. Persons old enough to marry, vote, and go to war can amuse themselves with the old game, this time with grown-up approval. The revamped version includes one highly significant improvement: If I like yours better, I can have it. Or, at least, pretend to while I get used to the idea. https://thefederalist.com/2018/01/09/georgetown-university-offer-jesuit-approved-lgbtq-housing/
ABS is in receipt of an email from Professor Herman NuDix of Continuity College in Rome who, through ABS, wants to ensure all Catholics that there is nothing new here and that, by all means, what is happening at Georgetown University is aught but an example of Continuity. Dear ABS, thank you so much for forwarding to me this questionable column by Maureen Mullarkey. I could begin by noting just how apt is her surname but such paralepsis ought be reserved for when it is most useful- such as during a political campaign and the election is over, capiche? But what I want to get to is that the concept of in loco parentis (Literally, parents are crazy) as actualised by the University is an example of Continuity because the authorities at Georgetown seem every bit as crazy as the parents who send their children to this University. If parents send their children to an anthropocentric abattoir and the children become Devil's Fool Flakes whose fault, ultimately, is that? Rest assured, ABS, everything in the Shadow Church * is continuity according to the most recent translation of the Bible by the highest critics: The words of Ecclesiastes, the son of David, King of Jerusalem. Continuity of Continuity, said Ecclesiastes, Continuityof Continuity, and all is Continuity. *It is a shadow Church because it has no substance
Catholic parents who send their children to Georgetown would be eligible to compete on this show:
