I was raised on baseball and as a kid enjoyed those neighborhood games of it. Since then though I have fallen away from baseball. I just am not interested in organized baseball with all its rules and rituals. Really I find it boring and just not related to my lived experience. Also I really don’t know all that much about the details of baseball. I barely understand what a sacrifice is and a RBI is arcane to me.

Nevertheless I have some suggestions for when they elect a new Commissioner of Baseball. So I would like to suggest new rules for baseball to bring it up-to-date and more inline with modern times and that of course we need female players in the major leagues.

Now isn’t that pretty much how so many articles start out right now in relation to an election of a new pope? People who really don’t care about the Church or are opposed to it are freely giving advice to make it better. Equal parts hubris and ignorance seem to be a prescription for such writers commenting on the Church.

That these writers are ignorant of the fact that there very prescription has already been adopted by other churches such as Anglicanism and the results of that prescription have had many side effects including shrinking attendance. They are also not even aware that the bodies that adopted their remedy have people moving to the Church they believe so deficient. Still I can hardly blame them for their ignorance of this since even those not unaware of this say exactly the same thing.

  1. And I just know you’re going to have someone agree with you about the baseball thing, changing this or that rule or how to run the game. I listen to the guys at the local watering hole enough as they fuss about a play or a throw or a game… sigh.
    What would you say if you’d grown up playing half-rubber?

  2. I disagree that they are ignorant of the shrinking attendance, and that these measures have destroyed those denominations (relics that they were).

    I posit that they know precisely what the proposed policies would produce in terms of unity, coherence, and overall health of the Church… they know it would cause schism, and be a visible sign that the Church is not really “The Church”.

  3. Along these lines, folks may find amusing the series that the orthodox Anglican blog “Stand Firm in Faith” (staunchly Protestant, but usually bearing a great deal of respect for the Church for Her willingness to stand up for traditional Christian morality, etc.) is running on what they call “Papal Malarkey Syndrome.” Basically a regular fisking of the silliest articles published in the media about the upcoming conclave, and a good deal of fun.

    That a say “IT” Panda Rosa! Look, “I” know that salvage is no way around so U>S (usual sinners) will take his place cause we are about 92% godly cells of Victor’s flesh NOW! If we keep on believing, “IT” will make U>S real again cause I’ve heard Victor’s so called 7% reality spiritual cells say in so many words that “LOVE” is unstoppable NOW! Butt, we’ll be glad when Victor comes back home http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVFF98kNg8Q with U>S gods “Word” NOW!

    STOP “IT” RIGHT? NOW! sinner vic and again you’re way off topic again and again so can ya give U>S a few suggestions as to who will be our next Papa? That’s if you really are a god that is? In other word sinner vic, do a good job and/or “GET OFF THE THRONE NOW” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7lqNTYgpqc

    END VICTOR! You asked for “IT” so “BE IT”! After we so called salvaged godly cells are finished, you won’t have to guess what “I’M” against you’ll know what “I’M” for if ya get my drift, you’ll know all about those good old days http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLK_kkL2yjY NOW!?

    GIVE “IT” UP sinner vic! The only reason that you’re still in “IT” is because http://www.patheos.com/blogs/theanchoress/2013/02/15/ts-eliots-prophetic-poem/ Papa’s follow hers, I mean followers are too busy praying during Lent for ya and…….

    Come on Victor!

  5. I’d be careful about mentioning declining attendance as though it said anything about the truth of the doctrine. After all, the Eucharist was costing us parishioners before there was even a Church!
