Okay, so maybe I might be totally crushing on a previously Christian pop singer who grew up as a Christian missionaries' daughter but then became one of the word's richest female music performers. Now she's apparently a witchcraft practicing and Satan dating (e.g. not Russell Brand) queen of the Illuminati! How is that not totally awesome?
Well, a couple of nuns on a (for sale) Los Angeles convent really aren't into Perry's lifestyle. They did a bunch of 'research' on the Internet and saw this video where she was doing a whole bunch of witchy and demonic stuff. Maybe they also read the abundance of conspiracy theory stuff linking Perry to the Illuminati -- who have yet to offer me a membership.
"Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and ... if it's all right to say, I wasn't happy with any of it," said Sister Rita, who told me she would rather not elaborate on her concerns as to whether Perry is a suitable candidate to live in a convent.You know, it could be a little subjective, right? Some might think that cloistering yourself up in a tax exempt building and praying constantly -- while your church advises other women to have lots of babies -- might just be a pretty strange way to make money. Besides, unless you're Whoopi Goldberg, just how entertaining are nuns anyway?
When Sister Rita learned that Perry would be performing during the Super Bowl halftime, she tuned in. Perry sang "Teenage Dream," (Let you put your hands on me. In my skin-tight jeans.) which was not a good choice, given Sister Rita's careful monitoring of the show. Sister Rita then watched as Perry was lifted off the ground and flew around the stadium as if riding a shooting star.
"I thought, is that a way to make money?" said Sister Rita. "Maybe I could fly around. I could be the flying nun."
Unlike the Catholic Church, and certain pedophile priests, has Perry really hurt anyone at all? As far as I know she's not broken any laws, covered up child molesters or participated in shady and corrupt banking practices. Illuminati Supreme Goddess aside, I do not believe she's done anything like cultural genocide in residential schools here in Canada either. Goodness, is this here convent actually made completely of glass?
Here's an interesting twist, though. The sisters of the convent claim to have already sold the property to a restaurateur, Dana Hollister. She owns bars and restaurants. Good Catholic institutions, no doubt. One commenter on the story summed up the local concern over such a deal.
I live right beneath this property... I really don't want some developer to turn it in to a tacky retreat for bros. Also, I'm a bit freaked out by the fact that the nuns are ok with selling to someone that opened a bar called Villains but have a moral issue with Ms. Perry. Really???It seems like the nuns have a problem with Perry, but not the archbishop -- Archbishop Jose Gomez -- to whom they've pledged their allegiance. Gomez wants to sell the property to Perry and apparently the majority of the nuns have, in fact, signed away their rights to sell the property.
Hennigan argued that three of the five sisters have signed declarations supporting Gomez's right to sell the property. But an attorney retained by Sisters Rita and Catherine Rose suggested that the three may have been coerced or did not understand what they were signing.Here's the part that really sticks out for me. If you listen to a CBC interview with one of the nuns (skip to 16:42) you'll hear some enlightening things.
The sister didn't seem to want to dwell too much on why they had a problem with Perry. To be honest, it sounded like some sort of ad hoc reason.
Instead, the sister seemed most concerned about them having control over the money, not the archdiocese. Their deal was for more and they would see some of the money. Really, it all seems to be about money.
Furthermore, these nuns do not seem to have a great deal of trust in their very own Catholic church. They don't seem to have any confidence at all that they'll be properly taken care of if they church gets its hands on the money. They only want the church to get the money when they're all dead. It's almost like a hostage situation. What does this say?
Perhaps Perry can pull some strings -- literally -- and have the lluminati Overlords fix this.
Thanks to Stephanie for bringing this to my attention.
