I would never have predicted such a fall


The Church Militant — you know, the fanatical fringe of conservative Catholicism, home to Michael Voris, etc. — has a new product to sell. For a mere $75, you can buy CDs of the Psalms and Proverbs being read aloud by…

Are you sitting down for this?

Milo Yiannopoulos.

The comments are full of people praising the power of God to rescue such a sinner, but I’m a doubter. I don’t think he’s saved at all. He’s found another grift, is all. I’d be more impressed if he’d found a humble faith to follow, but I’m sorry, the Church Militant is a mob of extremist weirdos.

    Woah…
    It’s like watching two grifters grift each other, and you know they both know it, but are pretending not to. o_0
    …kinda makes my brain hurt.

    Those of us who remember him from his early days in the mid 2000s as the “gay Catholic who opposes gay marriage” find very little has changed. It’s pretty much a reversion to type, although back then it was the only way he could claw himself into British TV’s cheap rent-a-gob circuit.

    It doesn’t surprise me at all that Milo Yiannopoulos would try this kind of reinvention. That anyone would bite is just sad though.

    This one got an LOL out of me…

    But, Authoritarians usually love quislings. A nice merkin to cover their bigotry.

    That psalm has some quite beautiful musical renditions, but dogs almighty how could they manage to get Milo Y. to read “thy rod and staff, have comforted me” without tongues becoming glued to cheeks and irony meters everywhere exploding.
