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

Third World problems...we've got them.

It is going to get worse and it may never get better, kiddies.

Just watch for the reaction to come...

GOP Rep. Steve Scalise shot at congressional baseball practice - CNBC...

1) Left-fascist  Colonel Sanders fan shoots Repansycans.

2) ?

Will some Clumpskyite AWUG mirror-image of Hodgkinson shoot some Democrasses and will right-fascists claim victory if one is killed?

Will there be a Clampdown ?

How many Repansycans will become gun-grabbers now that they realize that left-fascists can buy guns too?

Is this the catalyst that spurs the formation of an All-Fascist United Front to protect the perverse common interests of ALL our moral and intellectual superiors?

Don't laugh, kiddies. It most certainly can happen here.

It might have already happened...

A gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, wounding five people, including the third-ranking House Republican.

Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise was shot in the hip. He underwent surgery at Medstar Washington Hospital Center and is in critical condition. Earlier, a statement from his office characterized his condition as stable.

Two U.S. Capitol Police officers — who House Speaker Paul Ryan identified as Crystal Griner and David Bailey — were wounded. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa said in a statement that Griner is in "good condition in the hospital after getting shot in the ankle" and that Bailey was "treated and released" following a "minor" injury.

"Had they not been there, it would have been a massacre," eyewitness Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who took cover behind a tree amid the shooting, said of the Capitol Police. The officers were present because Scalise is a member of the congressional leadership.

Ryan named the others injured: Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika and Zack Barth, a staffer for Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas. Mika was transported to a hospital and remains in critical condition following surgery, according to a Tyson Foods spokesman.

Barth's condition was not immediately known.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday afternoon that the assailant had died of gunshot wounds.

The FBI said law enforcement officials identified him as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Illinois.

Several GOP congressmen and at least two Republican senators attended the practice, Paul told MSNBC. They were preparing for an annual bipartisan charity baseball game set to take place on Thursday at Nationals Park. That game will go on as scheduled.

South Carolina Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan told CNBC that he was approached by a man Wednesday morning who asked him whether the people practicing on the field were Democrats or Republicans. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who was with Duncan at the time, later told CNBC that the pair saw pictures of Hodgkinson and believe it was the same person who stopped them with the question.

It is too early to tell if the shooting was a targeted attack, said Tim Slater, a special agent in charge of the FBI's Washington field office.

The shooting started shortly after 7 a.m., ET, and witnesses described Hodgkinson's weapon as a rifle. Paul said he heard a first, "isolated" shot followed by a "rapid succession" of five to 10 shots.

Rep. Jack Bergman, R-Mich., told CNBC that the first shot came "from somewhere behind the third base dugout and then the second shot came shortly thereafter." They then "knew it was something real, so people started scrambling."

"We are very fortunate. It could have been a whole lot worse," he said.

Capitol Police and Alexandria police officers who responded to the scene exchanged fire with the shooter, according to Verderosa. Witnesses described dozens of shots ringing out before the firing stopped.

Brooks told CNN that he saw Scalise drag himself from second base into the outfield after he was shot, leaving a trail of blood 10 to 15 yards long. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., told reporters Scalise lay by himself for "at least 10 minutes," as people could not get to him amid the shooting.

"I wanted to get to him but there were still shots going overhead from both sides," he said.

People helped an injured aide in the first base dugout, Flake later told MSNBC. They also made sure Texas Rep. Joe Barton's 10-year-old son, who attended the practice, got to safety.

Barton teared up later Wednesday when he said he felt that his son "had 25 dads. Everybody out there was looking out for him."

When they could make it to Scalise, Rep. Brad Wenstrup of Ohio, a former combat surgeon, applied pressure to the wound, Flake said. Wenstrup told CBS News that he "felt like [he] was back in Iraq."
Trump said the two Capitol Police officers "took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds."

Scalise remained coherent throughout, according to Flake. The senator said he called Scalise's wife so she did not hear about the shooting on the news first.

Officials delayed or canceled many House hearings scheduled for Wednesday. The Senate chamber also canceled votes for the day, according to multiple reports.

After the shooting, Trump called for unity.

Of course it did.

"We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because, above all, they love our country. We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans ... and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good," the president said.

He called Scalise a "patriot" and a "fighter."

It has no ides who Scalise is.

In a statement to the House later Wednesday, Ryan praised the Capitol Police officers and also called for unity.

Of course he did.

"An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us," Ryan said, drawing a standing ovation.

Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., shared a photo of Democrats at their baseball practice praying for the Republicans.

Praying to what, exactly?

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.
