    Default You're favourite Sunday Mass newspaper

    I haven't seen anything on this in a long time, but what's you're favourite newspaper at Sunday mass. Is it

    the Universe
    the Irish Catholic

    or

    Alive


    As for me, I think i'm more of an Alive reader. It is more of a wild ride type of newspaper and is not afraid to take on our modern secular society like the other two. But the other two are good descent catholic newspapers.

    Whats you're favourite newspaper at mass?
    I know what it is I want, but I cannot answer the question when my conscience asks why.

    Given your views no wonder you read the tripe that is Alive! Blank toilet paper has more intellectual depth than that rag.

    Such a holy publication with much to teach, influence and inform towards the greater benefit of our lord is no piece of toilet paper. Those disgusting magazines with the women are toilet paper for a society gone morally bankrupt, and out of touch with its spiritual side. Alive it the key to a better media and way of reading for everybody. And it's free to- cool!!

    Don´t be confusing spirituality with religion - certainly not religion of the rule-book variety

    Anything but Alive.

    The first thing I do when it comes in my door is I scan for the Euro-scepticism. Laugh. Then Throw it in the recycling bin.

    It's a nice monthly ritual I've built up.

    I've also successfully got the newspaper banned from my local parish church. I saw a man in a wheelchair leave with one after mass and I felt so sorry. If he were to see the parts where they claim that the EU is going to impose euthanasia on Ireland then it's likely that he'd be very scared.

'Tompatrick' disappeared and 'Hellhathno' appeared, with the same modus operandi

    - taking extreme positions
    - bombarding the site with provocative extreme threads
    - the language and debating styles are the same.
    - the spelling mistakes and grammatical mistakes are the same.
    - using an image of the 'Sacred Heart', and quoting from the extremist rag 'Alive!' are the sort of provocative things Bateman and his socks would do.

    I smell a rat behind all of it. It looks like just another Bateman stunt to provoke, offend and annoy people to see what response he gets.
