"Hard as Nails"

I saw this article entitled "Controversial Preacher Is 'Hard as Nails'", as I started reading it I did an "Oh why does he have to be Catholic? Why are they always Catholic" but when I went back and reread the first paragraph a phrase stood out to me.

Jumping up and down, getting hit by chairs and telling girls they are fat is hardly the image of a Catholic preacher. But for Justin Fatica, a 29-year-old unordained priest and leader of a nonprofit called Hard as Nails Ministries, that is exactly the point.

What the heck is an 'unordained priest'. If you're unordained then you're just a guy. Right?

You got that right.
He's not a "priest" (and if he's impersonating one, he's not even Catholic - he's excommunicated) - he's a loudmouth.

And if he called my 16 year old daughter fat, he'd be a toothless loudmouth.

It's a shame these types and the 'God Hates Fags' group are the ones that get the most attention, while there are other men of the cloth out there doing good work who can't get arrested.

wow I can't believe they would even put unordained and priest together in the same sentence!!!!

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
