• Our Blogger

    Fr. Joseph Jenkins

  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

Satanist Club May Move Into PG County Elementary School

I was a member of Bible Club at Suitland Senior High School. There was plenty of discussion and debate between the various denominations. But we all loved the Lord. This business here is worrisome. Supposedly, this is not about real satanism but atheism. The label is intended to upset people… particularly Christians. If the effort were honest then it might be called The Atheist Club or The Rationalist Club or The Darwin Club, etc. Scientific discussion about cosmology and evolution would be their right… just as a Christian club would discuss relationships with Christ, dependence upon God, intelligent design, creation, etc. I doubt there are many kids requesting it… just adults who like to infuriate others. What is lost in the mix is real dialogue and respect.
