From the Vatican comes this unsavory morsel – the pope speaks of eating shit! Yes, indeed – Coprophagia – the consumption of feces, was on the Popes mind today. (Our quick search here at the Asylum (since we’d never heard the term before) resulted in what we thought we’d find, coprophagia is usually associated with beetles, flies, sometimes dogs)
“In humans, coprophagia has been observed in individuals with mental illness” – Wikipedia.
And what, prey tell, could possibly be on the mind of the Pope-a-Dope to bring up coprophagia – this eating of shit? Well, of course! He was discussing the dangers of “fake news”. Screw us! How did that not come to mind the minute he opened his mouth, planted his foot in it, and started in down the aisle of brown streaks. Yes, yes, yes…coprophagia! We should have known all along.
“I think the media have to be very clear, very transparent, and not fall into – no offence intended – the sickness of coprophilia, that is, always wanting to cover scandals, covering nasty things, even if they are true,” he said.” And since people have a tendency towards the sickness of coprophagia, a lot of damage can be done.” https://ca.news.yahoo.com/pope-warns-media-over-sin-spreading-fake-news-141839037.html
EXACTLY, Your “Holiness”! People from around the world have a tendency towards the sickness of coprophagia – this eating of shit. Why, it’s almost at epidemic proportions! We catch your BS here, dude. You’d rather the media not give one hint of attention to any of the scandals, the nasty things, as you say, even if they are true, right? Better to just ignore the criminals and the crimes, right? Better to ignore the truth – right, you shyster? Nice touch to equate reporting the truth to as something as sick and vile as coprophagia.
He said, “scandal-mongering media risked falling prey to coprophilia, or arousal from excrement, and consumers of these media risked coprophagia, or eating excrement,” Reuters reports. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/pope-francis-compares-fake-news-arousal-by-feces/.
Right on, baby! I mean, that is what everyone guards against when coming across a fake news item, program, article… say from CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, etc (you were referring to those media outlets, right???) One reads the item, knows it’s fake or a lie, and then there it is – this arousal from reading disinformation suddenly appears and then you have it – you have to deal with coprophagia – this eating of shit. Happens to everyone. “Honey, I just read this fake news item and all of sudden I feel like eating a shit sandwich!” Happens all the time. No, actually…people just want the truth, and guess what Pontiff, they’ll always be in search of it.
He described disinformation as the greatest harm the media can do because “it directs opinion in only one direction and omits the other part of the truth,” he said. Look your highness, God gave us a brain. We can decipher between opinion and truth…we can seek out different opinions, different viewpoints. We can investigate information and disinformation and make a sound judgement as to which is which. You’d rather we know nothing but what is spoon-fed to us through a main stream media that certainly cannot be called unbiased.
So, Ponty….how about concentrating less on the disturbing things jetting through your mind and more about righting a few of the more blatant wrongs and hypocrisies of the Catholic Church. Like the Church’s pedophilic priests – known to have committed disgusting acts of cruelty on innocent victims – why aren’t they being prosecuted and jailed in secular courts? Why have some of these criminals been moved quietly to South America to continue their Catholic “missions”, or given a nice early retirement package? ( http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/9/18/1422635/-The-Catholic-Church-is-using-South-America-to-hide-their-pedophile-priests ) and ( http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/catholic-church-spent-millions-providing-for-paedophile-priests-20160109-gm2f4z.html ). That’s a nice shit sandwich of yours you might concentrate on. Or is that one of those scandals we just shouldn’t pay any attention to? You know, like this one…”Pope Francis Scraps Abuse Tribunal for Bishops Who Cover Up Pedophile Priests”. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/religion/pope-francis-scraps-abuse-tribunal-bishops-who-cover-pedophile-priests-n585841
And that 39 foot wall around most of the Vatican – very cool and hip to tell countries, particularly the USA, not to build a wall. But how about the Vatican taking the lead and letting refugees into your digs before demanding it of other countries. Seems you all have the cash, certainly have everything there within Vatican City to help the poor, the refugees….how about cleaning up the shit in your own house before you start in with the problems of other people’s shit.
In fact, what kind of demented, perverted mind comes up with such shit? It’s doubtful that most ordinary folks even know what this coprophilia is…how in the hell is this something that you know about and can pull out of your ass to make a point? As Wikipedia did mention that coprophagia in humans has been observed in individuals with mental illness, perhaps you might want to check your shit into the nearest mental health facility. This isn’t the first time you’ve brought of coprophagia. In March 2013, you warned that journalists risked becoming ill from their coprophilia, and that they could be “fomenting coprophagia” in their readers. It appears about the only person who has this morbid fascination with excrement, is you.
