Lessons Matt Kennedy Learned When Attempting Theft - #11

I know our Boy in Binghamton probably jumped the shark at #10, but there's still an ocean of wisdom in the remaining lessons. Or if not an ocean, then a least a puddle of sufficient size to irritate a few fellow conservatives clearly jealous of the success this series has been enjoying...

11. If you are a blogger or writer and your lawyer lets you, keep blogging and writing. This will expose the diocesan actions to the light of public scrutiny. Be sure to pass everything you publish through your attorney beforehand.
Remember that it’s not as if you’re paying the attorney’s bills with your own money. Besides, any lawyer grubby enough to have encouraged you to proceed with an unwinnable case will love you for also giving them a chance to “work the file” by racking up even higher earnings in the course of following instructions to peruse your blog dribbles for potential libel, perjury, or contempt.

Someone from Binghamton visits my humble blog a few times each day. He finds my theological teaching by googling "Matt Kennedy, Anglican". Is this a form of bloated self-importance? Or is he ensuring he is not being libelled and about to set a lawyer upon me? I only know one Mr Kennedy and he is a Calvinist- not an Anglican - from Kenya.

Well, actually, that's a damn good question about many folks in holy orders...

So enjoying this illuminating series.

It's not the ordination process that's the problem - it's the ghetto lifestyle and mentality. These folk simply don't talk to anybody who sees things differently.

Coupled with a strong sense of entitlement (hence the attempted theft).

And the fact that you've based your lives on a fantasy figure doesn't help, either.
We never have these problems with pharmacists.
"Father"? Like you're what, exactly? Am I supposed to give you authority and respect because you've convinced some group that somebody invisible has chosen you?
Are you serious? I've known drug addicts less delusional than this.
And with much better manners.

I dare say you have, little Brad my son. And I've also enjoyed conversations with house-plants less insightful than you. But not often.

For Fr Hugh...I believe he, like his Kenyan Bishop Atwood, is from Texas. Kenya, like, say a Bank in the Caymans, is an offshore account of convenience.
