Peudo-Catholic’s Thanksgiving gaffe

Do not drag me away with the wicked,
and with the workers of iniquity,
who speak peace to their neighbors
while malice is in their hearts.

Repay them according to their deeds
and for their works of evil.

Repay them for what their hands have done;
bring back on them what they deserve.

Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD
or what His hands have done,

He will tear them down
and never rebuild them.

The same Psalm – 28, 3-5

  1. I’m trying to imagine the totality of the response from CNN et al had Trump said this.😒
    … never mind the Twitterstorm & Facebook guffawing.

  2. Terry Pedersen

    Pshaw, Lad, it is my melancholy duty to tell you all that Joe Biden is President Elect and will be inaugurated on 20 January 2021. The current Lame Duck will be gone from that date and will never be back. So, be of good cheer for better days are coming.

  3. Some History

    Is Creepy talking about a Pacific Island tree doctor?

  4. pbw

    Cut the bloke some slack. At least her remembered there was something odd about the pronunciation.

  5. Candy

    His wife needs to run through his speeches with him really really carefully. She missed that one.

  6. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Is the “S” in “Sleepy Joe” silent?

  7. Some History

    Hey, Terry Firma, you sound very much like Bent Meddler.

    PS That’s not a compliment, by the way.

  8. JR

    That’s actually Psalm 27, CL. You should buy a (proper Catholic) Bible.

  9. Ƶĩppʯ (President Elect)

    Is the “S” in “Sleepy Joe” silent?

    It’s a hard “S” as in Kleepy Joe

  10. C.L.

    Nope. It’s Psalm 28. My reference is the Jerusalem Bible (commissioned by Pope Pius XII).

  11. Gerry

    Catholics mostly have NFI of the Bible

  12. Any word yet on when Merriam-Webster’s updating of their dictionary to reflect the new pronunciation of “Psalmist” will happen?

  13. C.L.

    Catholics mostly have NFI of the Bible

    Apart from compiling it in the first place, sure.

  14. Gerry

    CL ….Catholics compiled the bible centuries ago …. it’s fairly certain that none of those guys are still alive …most Catholics these days barely know any scripture ..maybe about the resurrection and the birth of Jesus …. and possibly the sermon on the mount …

  15. Rex Mango

    Good to see a Catholic in the White House the same way it’s great to have a communist in the Vatican.

  16. Terry

    ‘…. it’s fairly certain that none of those guys are still alive’
    Sure, tell that to all of those voters in MI, WI, PA, & GA.

  17. calli

    Psalm 28. And mine’s just an ordinary, garden variety Bible. 🙂

    It’s attributed to David. Probably written when Saul was hunting him down with a view to killing him.

    I can see why the Minders chose that one. They’re trying to build a David and Goliath narrative around Biden. Only one problem – as in all the Left’s narratives, the roles are reversed.

  18. notafan

    Oh noes not the Catholics don’t know the bible. Again.

    Anyone that regularly attends Holy Mass knows the bible, old testament, new testament, psalms, bible based verse hymns and most often homily on the readings of the day, and most importantly the celebration of the Eucharist. Nothing like the song sermon song sandwich, I know.

    What we don’t do it treat it like a Koran memorising random verses by chapter and verse. Nor is there any scriptural injunction that says memorising the bible will guarantee you a place in heaven.

    On and btw, the chapter and versing are of far later original than the bible itself

  19. notafan

    also

    Apart from the pronunciation that’s appalling, apart from the presumption, the implication.

    Disgraceful.

  20. rickw

    Oh, just like munty and numbers!

  21. A Lurker

    I knew how to pronounce the word Psalm when I was a youngster in Sunday School.

    Like most of his ilk, Biden would I predict, burst into flames when walking on sanctified ground.

    Every week, one section of the old testament is read, one of the gospels and one of the acts, letters etc.

    Hail Mary is taken word for word from Luke. Where do you think the Pater Noster comes from? 🤓

    I know the gist of the whole thing. I know Isiah 49 from my father’s funeral.

    Tell me more how Hillsong and social justice warriors are biblically based.

    Isn’t it a bit late to prank a heathen such as yourself with an April Fools joke?

    Salvatore wins the Internet for today.

  25. Biden’s value system is much closer to that expressed by Jesus than Trump’s.
    Service, compassion, humility, endurance, wisdom and justice are just a few Christian values that Trump conspicuously lacks.
    There are a few others he’s not notable for, including renunciation of worldly goods (Matthew 6:21).
    Then there’s enunciation of spite and vengeance (Luke 6:29), faithfulness in marriage (Matthew 19:6), and loving your enemies (Matthew 5:54).
    Mind you, you’d be hard pressed to identify anything Trump valued except his own ego.

  26. Judge Dredd

    Biden is a senile wolf in sheep’s clothing.

  27. Mother Lode

    But psalms are hard. There is the ‘plus’ picture and…and…the divided picture and…and…the minor, the mi, the mi, you know, the thing.

  28. Thaddeus

    “What did he say?”

    “I think he said ‘blessed are the cheese makers’ ”

    “It’s obviously an allegory and refers to manufacturers of all dairy products”

    FMD what a fake. Hay numbers how much in bribes did Trump take from the Ukraine and China? Just asking.

  33. Penguinite

  34. Mak Siccar

    Very droll.

  35. Oh come on

    If you’re confused, imagine how the Chinese felt when this strange old man kept demanding they grease his psalm.

  36. Oh come on

    I can imagine the thought process would have been like this:

    crazy grandpa must want either money or sex. Ok just send both

  37. Gbees

    He’s a fake Christian … the man’s an idiot. Let’s hope Trump prevails over the industrial scale election fraud.

  38. Shane

    Devout Catholic, Pseudo Catholic & Cultural Catholic seem pretty interchangeable in the current Newspeak of our End times.
    It’s a bit like calling the current Pontiff, Catholic rather than a more appropriate moniker of a Beijing appeasing Sinophile just like Biden, the soi-disant President-Elect.
    Bet the current Pontiff would appreciate a similar load of moola to what Beijing has given Biden & family, not quite sure though how Frank would deal with the underage girls that China supplied & videoed Hunter with.
    Numbers seems trapped in an alternate distorted reality or what maybe even more likely, he’s really a closet conservative who has taken on that unenviable role of being an undercover unsung scriber who can never be acknowledged for his sterling work of setting up various lefty strawmen arguments to just lampoon & expose leftish shallow thinking while taking sh*t for doing so…..
    Just think about the brain fatigue he must go thru daily as he tries to spin nonsense with every post.
    KUDOS.
    Trump’s principal achievement, unsung & overlooked by numbers, is that unlike the preceding 44,43,42,41,40 is not invading another country whether it be Grenada, Iraq, Libya, or Serbia with the normal accompanying average of 5000+ body bags. Numbers probably will never get around to ask himself what was Biden’s role in all of 44’s share of this while Barry was off goofing around with celebrities, golfing or just chilling back by having ‘catered parties with $50,000 worth of hot dogs’ flown in from Chicago. Does anyone recall how Biden’s son Beau, while Attorney General of Delaware had a male former prostitute arrested while he was giving a press conference about his cocaine-fuelled hookups with a younger Barry?

    No….the racist believes his garbage.

  40. Terry Pedersen

    Ah, the things that matter. Psalm with a silent “s”.

    Maybe just an error reading the autocue, or maybe deliberate avoidance of a stuttering/stammering trigger by your President Elect.

    As with “covfefe” and even “ifea” history tells us that “psalm with a silent ‘s'” will soon enter the Cat lexicon as a sign of genius.

  41. candy

    When you think about, how can any well-educated person like Biden not even know how to pronounce psalmist? And apparently a President-elect, even though fraudulently voted in.

    What else doesn’t he know, or has dementia now substantially overtaken him.

    NamBob wades into moral relativity. Good grief.”

    That’s his shtick…moral relativity. He has compared the Irish famine to the Holocaust. Brendan O’Neill wrote a good piece earlier this week on Spiked about the left’s cheapening of the Holocaust ..

    https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/11/18/cnns-shameless-assault-on-the-memory-of-the-holocaust/

  43. Old Lefty

    Meanwhile the left are starting to hyperventilate about the supreme court decision overturning Cuomo’s restrictions on worship. Far from Barrett instituting a fascist theocracy, the decision simply affirms that believers should have the same rights of expression and assembly as everyone else. In today’s woke left world, that probably does count as fascist theocracy.

    Compare, by contrast, the bill against so-called conversion therapy introduced by the Andrews-Setka-Roz Ward Stalinst pervert thuggocracy.

  44. Real Deal

    Biden’s value system is much closer to that expressed by Jesus than Trump’s.
    Service, compassion, humility, endurance, wisdom and justice are just a few Christian values that Trump conspicuously lacks.
    There are a few others he’s not notable for, including renunciation of worldly goods (Matthew 6:21).

    Mind you, you’d be hard pressed to identify anything Trump valued except his own ego.

    Don’t stop with with those quotes from St Matthew, Bob. There is also Mt 19:14 “Suffer the little children, to come unto me” and Mt 18:6 “If anyone causes these little ones to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Biden as a Democrat is the head of a party that murders “such as these” in the womb. He is in behaviour and culture, the antithesis of the Son of God. A Washington insider and democrat power broker for five decades and you compare him to Jesus. I lurk here a lot and usually scroll past your nonsense. But honestly your are a complete boob, Bob.

  45. Roger

    My reference is the Jerusalem Bible (commissioned by Pope Pius XII).

    The JB has been revised at least twice since its publication, CL. You may want to read it with a revision alongside for the sake of accuracy. The first version was heavily indebted to the French original, and while it had its literary charms the revisions have turned to the original (Hebrew, Aramaic & Greek) manuscripts directly. Also, the notes, wherein the views of the Dominican friars who produced the French translation are set forth, are highly tendentious.

  50. C.L.

    Roger, Psalm 28 remains Psalm 28 in the revisions.
    JR was was cheekily referring to the Douay-Rheims 1899 in which 28 is in fact 27.

  51. Roger

    Roger, Psalm 28 remains Psalm 28 in the revisions.

    Yes, I suspected that was a jibe about versions, but that wasn’t my point old bean:

    The JB is a good literary version but it’s not an accurate translation.

    I remember the hysterics the MSM, and the left generally, went into earlier this year, when PDT, on a state visit to India, mispronounced the name of an Indian cricketer he had almost certainly never heard of five minutes before. In fact he may not even have heard the name at the time, only seen it written down, so he didn’t know the correct pronunciation.
    Of course, it made headline news on Channel Nein in Melbourne, for Pete’s sake!

    And since Lachlan the Dingbat seems to be so acutely sensitive about Christian piety and hypocrisy, I wonder if he would have rushed to the defense of a real Christian called Tony Abbott….when the MSM, the ABC, Fairfax, social media sewers etc. spent years smearing him and his Catholicism. Somehow I doubt it because I think that it is Lachlan the Dingbat is the hypocrite here.

    Err, not to mention a devout Christian Cardinal who was falsely convicted on manufactured charges (can I say ‘trumped-up”?), and that’s just in recent memory.

    We’ve barely started, given the fact that Christians are the most persecuted group around the world – see, for example: Barnabas Fund.
