I would like to have a Re-Education Camp for Catholics in Dickinson, North Dakota. If you have ever seen the movie “The Killing Fields” about the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, I would like to have a re-education camp like the one shown in the movie.
In the main school room hut of the camp, all of the adult hard case Catholics would be seated on the benches. The proctor would recite, “Jesus was the son of God.”, then all of the Catholics would repeat back, “Jesus was the son of God.”
“He came to Earth to teach, to instruct, and to demonstrate he was the son of God.”
“He came to Earth to teach, to instruct, …”
“He performed miracles that no man could perform.”
“He performed miracles that no…”
“He made the blind to see, the lame to walk, and raised the dead to living.”
“He made the blind to see, the lame to walk…”
“He divided a few fishes and loaves, to feed thousands.”
“He divided a few fishes and loaves…”
Without fail, one of the Dickinson Real Estate Agents couldn’t take in anymore, and she would stand up, screaming, “We can charge whatever we want for rent! We can charge whatever we want for rent! We can charge whatever we want for rent! Aaaahhhh! Aaaahhh!” And she would be dragged off to the Monkey Pit.
The proctor would continue, “Jesus taught that we should love one another.” The Catholics would repeat back, “Jesus taught that we should love one another.” As if often the case, one uprising inspires another, and soon a woman from the Catholic Auxilary would begin yelling, “We didn’t ask you to come here! We didn’t ask you to come here! We didn’t ask you to come here! Aaaahhhh! Aaaahhhh!” And she would be dragged off to the Monkey Pit.
The proctor would continue, “Jesus taught the twelve Apostles, and these teachings were recorded in the New Testament of the Bible.” But before the Catholics could repeat, they were interrupted by a land owner, “We don’t have to help anybody! We don’t have to help anybody! We don’t have to help anybody! Aaaahhhh! Aaaahhhh!” And he would be dragged outside and tied to a post in the sun, lest he think that he is going to “make time” with the Catholic women in the Monkey Pit.
The remaining pupils in the main school room hut, were either being convinced of the teachings of Jesus, or they were too scared to act out. Either way, time would tell. If the pupils were not true believers in the teachings of Jesus, at least they would be too frightened to go back to their old habits of trying to take advantage of others and mistreat others.
(I went to Catholic School for five years, Sacred Heart School, and Sacred Heart School was just like what I have described above.)

O.k. this one is pretty funny. I don’t dislike Catholics, but I believe it is the truth that people here (and not only Catholics) became very, very greedy and it led to all manner of conduct unbecoming a Christian (or anybody). I recall a long time back, a commenter here wrote that “You would do the same! Anybody would!” (or in kind). I think of her comment often, and while it holds true to many, many people, it isn’t true of everybody. It isn’t supposed to be true of genuine Christians, certainly. The recent weather tragedies made me recall her comment, reports of people trying to sell basic essentials, like water, for prices that weren’t only inflated, but rather absolutely GOUGING.
BTW, we aren’t moving after all…….But, I can’t wait to get out of our incredibly noisy apartment.
I edited the very end of your comment, removing some details, so that someone could not recognize that it was you. I don’t want you to find out how vindictive and petty people can be in trying to use things against you. Especially if your husband has a good job, there are many people that would try anything they could to cause him problems, in order to try to advance themselves.
This blog post that you commented on, I had to change the title of the blog post from what I originally wanted, because it may be to the point where the Catholics would try to convince the Police that I was making “terroristic threats” or “threatening violence” against them. Even though what I intended was satirical, sarcastic, and comedic, there are people, especially Police, that would just read it as literal, literal, literal.
About once each week, my blog posts about “Catholic Church in Dickinson, North Dakota”, goes missing from the Google search results. It appears that about once each week, a member of the Catholic Church reports my blog posts to Google for being illegal. The only grounds for them being illegal, would be if they were threatening to harm an individual or group of individuals. Google has to review the content to see if it is illegal, and then the blog posts get back in the queue. I believe that the Catholics believe that even if they get my blog posts out of the Google search results for even one day, that they have accomplished something, or they hope that one day the Google reviewer will agree with them.
