“It was Pope Gregory XIII who, in 1582, would unknowingly give rise to the world’s silliest holiday. He issued a decree ordering that all Christian nations adopt a standardized calendar, called the Gregorian calendar.

Is SMOLLETT the new Gay, O.J.? If the glove don’t fit, don’t convict. It’s not that he was exonerated. He gave up his $10,000 bond and did community service. Now if he had kicked a dog in the ass, he would have been in prison by now .

All that changed after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), which introduced the Newchurch of the New Order with its invalid “New” Mess and pseudo-sacraments, new doctrine, and new morality. As if that weren’t bad enough, Newchurch’s Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust struck. As a result, Canadians have been walking out on Newchurch at an ever increasing rate.
