I had to laugh . . .

Unapologetic Catholic has a post on full disclosure. Here's my favorite part:

Some teenager asked Fr. X this question, “As a member of the clergy, is it difficult for you to lead a celibate life? Don’t you feel like you’re missing out on something?”
[...]
A touching and poignant answer, and there were smiles about the room. Suddenly, all eleven of my bullshit detectors went off like a wolfpack of diving World War II submarines. Don’t ask me how I knew, but I knew Fr. X had just lied his ass off.


I'm putting in an order for a few detectors myself. Clearly, one can't have too many.

Eleven....I thought that they came in pairs.....
Don't need bullshit detectors if
A) You've had close friends in the seminary or
B) You've accidentally stumbled across your priest's porn (not me,someone I knew)

I thought they came in pairs too.

When I thought of the priesthood, I went with the Jesuits because I needed some honesty. The number one question for me prior to deciding about the priesthood was if I was willing to give up sex, like forever. And yes, the bullshit detector went nuts whenever I heard crap. The Jesuits did not fool around. They are awesome. They laid it out like it is and I appreciated that.

Beyond that and as a general problem, my bullshit detector has expanded beyond its original mission parameters and I am detecting much on the radar that it was not initially programmed to detect.

I need a new set of detectors or a recallibration before I get too cynical.

Ahh...they do come in pairs, but I have several teenage sons. Consequently, they wear out often so I usually carry a spare.

When it comes to choosing the best radar detector, these are the main points to take into account: Research the sensitivity.
A radar detector needs to be an adequate range in order for the device to be useful. Different models and brands will have different ranges, so be sure to do your research before you buy. As a rule of thumb, choose a radar detector that is at least 110 dB. find out more at radar detectors pni on ebay
