It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

The Fond du Lac Reporter: Elderly man beats intruder with shoehorn

Town of Lebanon, Wisconsin — A man accused of breaking into and tormenting an elderly town of Lebanon couple early Monday morning has been arrested.

A man forced himself into the couple’s home about 1 a.m. and demanded money, according to a Dodge County Sheriff’s Department press release. The man threatened to shoot the couple, but the husband, in his 80s, beat the man with a shoehorn and the intruder fled.

A 46-year-old Clintonville man has been arrested and is being held in the Dodge County Jail. Another man believed to be connected to the crime was arrested in Waukesha County, according to the release. Both men are on probation for previous crimes.

According to police reports, the woman, in her 80s, noticed someone outside their home and quickly woke her husband. The intruder kicked in their door and entered the bedroom and confronted the husband, demanding money. The husband, also in his 80s, told the man to leave or he would shoot the intruder. The intruder said he was armed and would “blow his head off.”

The husband armed himself with a long shoehorn and began beating the intruder about the head forcing him from the residence, according to the release.

Too bad the elderly gentleman did not have a shotgun handy...

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
