History Hail-o Kitty by Jeffrey Miller September 23, 2012 written by Jeffrey Miller September 23, 2012 Some things are disturbing and funny or just disturbingly funny. Case in point: Southern -Fried Catholicism calls it Hail-o Mary. Well she is Cat-tholic. Other cultural mash-ups of Mary from a French artist that would make riot the French embassy if I didn’t have a disturbed funny bone. 4 comments 0 FacebookTwitterGoogle +Pinterest Jeffrey Miller previous post Sorry Father, you are not helping next post The Atheist Prayer You may also like The Case for Killing Granny September 22, 2009 Zealot July 28, 2013 Blended Roman Catholic and Episcopal services November 21, 2012 The Last Templars January 25, 2009 The Papal Jester March 27, 2018 4 comments Tonia September 23, 2012 - 6:14 pm Every family with young children has at least one of these characters as an action figure in the home. Very few homes have a figure of Mary. They made me think about the heroes and role models we present to our children. I particularly liked the Astroboy one. Reply Kyle September 23, 2012 - 8:43 pm In our faith; we can talk about these things. In other faiths, showing a certain prophet in such a manner would render a murderous fatwa. Reply Malvenu September 24, 2012 - 7:46 am I’m on the side of the Muslims on this one. Perhaps, if we took the reverence and/or desecration of images of Jesus and Mary and the saints, etc. the Church would not be in the state it is. I’m not suggesting we murder whoever put this statue together (whether or not it was intended to offend or a misguided idea of a ‘joke’), but rather than laughing it off, saying how good us Catholics are at being able to take this kind of offense, we should stand up to it and say that it is offensive to us. Having said that i chickened out of confronting a man wearing a rosary as an item of jewellry the other day! I think it’s all part of the same thing, though. Our faith and our reverence towards Our Lord and Our Lady is continually being eroded away and it makes it more and more difficult to stand up to this sort of rubbish. Reply Victor September 24, 2012 - 4:54 pm I was just wondering Jeff if she also has nine lives? I hear ya! That will be 9 Hale Marie for ya Victor! On second thought, don’t worry about “IT”, she still loves U>S (usual sinners) cause she`s NOW all LOVE just like her Son, Jesus.
