Manifesto of Black Lives Matter

My Dear Family,

What follows my little introduction is the Manifesto of Black Lives Matter. This is the group whose ideology, for a great part, anti-Catholic, is supported and lauded by thousands of misguided souls – which include government leaders, politicians, heads of state, Protestant clerics and many in the higher echelons of the Roman Catholic Hierarchy. How this can happen is a mystery. All a bishop or priest needs to do is to read the following document and see how many of its points are clearly against Catholic teaching.

These are not the times to sport your favorite beach-wear, regardless of how sporty and fashionable it is. Nor should shorts and flip-flops rule the day. Our church is verynicely air-conditioned so, it’s not too much to dress modestly and, yes, tastefully, for God. Gents should make every effort to wear dress slacks and, at least, a sport shirt. Ladies are always at their most beautiful in a tasteful dress or skirt and blouse. Should ladies choose slacks, remember looser is always more comfortable than tighter. Think Betty White rather than Kim Kardashian.
