    If this is a debunking, you didn’t have a bunk to begin with. The Boston priests merely made the best of a bad situation, and declined to criticize the police. I’m from a police family (man, it irritates liberals to hear from an authentic member of the working class who doesn’t agree with them) and I can tell you that priests are ALWAYS given access to the injured and dying at a crime scene. Not occasionally, when circumstances seem to warrant it, but always. That was the case, at any rate, until a few years ago. To call the indisputable fact that they were excluded, and the good manners with which they refused to find fault with individual police, evidence that there was no discrimination, is so skewed as to give a strong presumption of bad faith.

    I do not buy the argument that the clergy were barred from the scene of the accident in order to prevent possible further injuries. If, amidst that chaos, a physician showed up offering his services, he would not have been turned away. If additional police appeared to look for bombs, they would not have been turned away because of the danger. If more ambulance workers were there, they would not have been turned away as a surfeit of rescue personnel. Priests were… and the only logical explanation, be it as the result of an ad hoc decision or a fixed policy, was that their presence and services was deemed unessential. That is precisely the position I reject. The fact that the Boston Police have not, to the best of my knowledge a month and a half later, issued a statement on the clergy access question suggests to me there is something people don’t want the bitter rubes clinging to their “guns and religion” to know about. If that’s not true, please call for the issuance of a public statement on the incident, and we can put it all to rest.

  • Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
