The discussion began about Scalia's funeral and whether it was a Gospel service or not. Since Father Scalia referred several times to Purgatorial devotion in the Church of Rome, I added this graphic to Larry Beane's initial thread. (See below)
Someone posted a David Scaer graphic, so I posted my graphic about his UOJ quote.
Someone asked what was wrong with Scaer's statement, so I linked my new book. He was asking me, after all.
He wanted a free book - and also a CliffNotes version, so I linked the free one and also a summary post that involved Robert Preus quotations from his last book.
The person who asked finished by saying -
Kenneth Bomberger Thanks for the link! I'll read it at my earliest convenience.
So what did Larry Beane write? Oh my. He went full Paul McCain on me for responding to questions, something we do on discussions, no?
Here is Father Larry Beane - responding to the thank you from Kenneth Bomberger -
Pater Larry Beane Gregory, please use your own Facebook page for self-promotion. I charge $100 for ads.
You're getting to be like the embarrassing relative that drinks too much at Thanksgiving and passes out on the bed with all the coats on it.
Every family has members who want to hijack every expression of gratitude and joy, every real discussion and lighthearted banter, and even obvious humor, into a self-serving and dour political or doctrinal argument.
Gregory, you need to display better behavior from now on, or you won't be invited back.
To my other guests, I apologize. Hopefully your coats will not require dry cleaning.
I was surprised by his vulgar, gratuitous response, so I naturally wrote -
You should order your friends not to ask questions that deserve an answer. If you read the posts, you will see that.
Father Larry Beane, LCMS Pastor responded -
Pater Larry Beane Gregory, the way to save face is not to urinate in the kitchen.
