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

Mensches grow in Alabama.

Every once in while I get sick of wading through the mire that threatens to overwhelm us and I begin to despair...

"No, Fyodor! Say it ain't so!"

Don't worry, kiddies. The bastards haven't ground everyone down yet...

UPS workers in Alabama surprised a teenage colleague who walked 10 miles to and from work every day to make money to care for his sick mother by buying him a jeep. 

Derrick Taylor, 19, has been working at the center in Oxford, Alabama, for a year and a half loading and unloading vans with packages for $11.90 an hour. 

He had been walking five miles in the dead of the night to begin 4am shifts and then completing the same trudge home at the end of the day without complaint to make sure he had enough money to look after his sick mother and pay their bills.

While co-workers often insisted on giving him rides for at least one leg of the journey, Derrick said he was too proud to ask for help both ways and doesn't like accepting money or help from his older siblings.

He already had a driver's license but couldn't afford a car so staff clubbed together to buy one for him. 

They bought him a bottle green Cherokee jeep for $1,100 from a local dealer and presented it to him in a tear-jerking video that was shared online earlier this month.

'This is a hard working young man. He makes me emotional. This young man wants to work so bad, he walks to work from way out of town.

'The group here, we've got some good news for you. Everybody came together and you don't have to walk no more. You've got your own ride.

'We want you to know we appreciate your hard work,' James Williams, Derrick's safety instructor, said as he handed over the keys.

An emotional Derrick wiped tears from his face before going to check out his new car in amazement. 

Speaking to DailyMail.com on Wednesday, the 19-year-old said he was bowled over by his colleagues' generosity.

'I was overwhelmed with joy. No one had ever done anything like that for me so it made me cry and I'm not really the type to show my emotions.' 

Is this love, kiddies? You tell me.

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.
