Obama'll Fix it: An odd Second Collection

A very strange thing hap­pened in dur­ing Mass today.

Just after the Gospel read­ing the priest got up to tell us the sec­ond col­lec­tion (for which there was no enve­lope) to help relieve the suf­fer­ing of the peo­ple dev­as­tated by Hur­ri­cane Sandy.

While I was delighted to hear that 95%+ of money that goes to Catholic Relief Ser­vices goes to actual relief, pretty much neck and neck with the a strong Jew­ish Char­ity I was very confused.

I know I saw Barack Obama walk­ing with Chris Christie

I KNOW I saw the pres­i­dent promise to elim­i­nate red tape when it came to help­ing people.

And if you were fol­low­ing the news as I was you couldn’t HELP but see over and over every sin­gle media out­let absolutely gush­ing over the han­dling of Hur­ri­cane Sandy by Pres­i­dent Barack Obama to the point where accord­ing to MSNBC 4 – 10 vot­ers told them Hur­ri­cane Sandy was a fac­tor in their vot­ing.

Yeah I know there is a whole body of work that seems to sug­gest that this is Kat­rina on the Hud­son but we KNOW that’s not the case.

I’m pretty broke but given this Gospel read­ing (Mark 12:38 – 44):

In the course of his teach­ing he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greet­ings in the mar­ket­places, seats of honor in syn­a­gogues, and places of honor at ban­quets. They devour the houses of wid­ows and, as a pre­text, recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe con­dem­na­tion.

He sat down oppo­site the trea­sury and observed how the crowd put money into the trea­sury. Many rich peo­ple put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents.

Call­ing his dis­ci­ples to him­self, he said to them, “Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other con­trib­u­tors to the trea­sury. For they have all con­tributed from their sur­plus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has con­tributed all she had, her whole liveli­hood.

…I still kicked into the col­lec­tion even though despite what my pas­tor said, it cer­tainly can’t be true that the need is there I KNOW Obama’ll fix it…

After all, if the Gov­ern­ment is doing such a poor job tak­ing care of peo­ple suf­fer­ing, with­out power, food, or shel­ter, par­tic­u­larly in the biggest city in the coun­try, the car­ing hon­or­able main­stream media would NEVER have pushed a false nar­ra­tive of relief and recovery.

Would they?

A very strange thing happened in during Mass today.

Just after the Gospel reading the priest got up to tell us the second collection (for which there was no envelope) to help relieve the suffering of the people devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

While I was delighted to hear that 95%+ of money that goes to Catholic Relief Services goes to actual relief, pretty much neck and neck with the a strong Jewish Charity I was very confused.

I know I saw Barack Obama walking with Chris Christie

I KNOW I saw the president promise to eliminate red tape when it came to helping people.

And if you were following the news as I was you couldn’t HELP but see over and over every single media outlet absolutely gushing over the handling of Hurricane Sandy by President Barack Obama to the point where according to MSNBC 4-10 voters told them Hurricane Sandy was a factor in their voting.

Yeah I know there is a whole body of work that seems to suggest that this is Katrina on the Hudson but we KNOW that’s not the case.

I’m pretty broke but given this Gospel reading (Mark 12:38-44):

In the course of his teaching he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext, recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation.

He sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents.

Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, “Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood.

…I still kicked into the collection even though despite what my pastor said, it certainly can’t be true that the need is there I KNOW Obama’ll fix it…

After all, if the Government is doing such a poor job taking care of people suffering, without power,  food, or shelter, particularly in the biggest city in the country, the caring honorable mainstream media would NEVER have pushed a false narrative of relief and recovery.

Would they?
