Father Robert Ballecer has turned his back on Jesus.
With each successive broadcast “LIVE from the show floor”at CES, the plump priest morphs more and more into the Gollum that we’ve long suspected him to be. He’s reporting on drones, optical VR, smart phones, OLED televisions…everything Jesus would have smashed. It’s all just so incongruous with Padre’s life at the church. His quest for the new, the cool, the next makes no sense as a man of God. Take for example the $250 Audio-Technica headphones, sure they sound good. But instead of coveting them, Padre should just refuse the goodie bags, the swag, the free parties and go feed the poor.
From the Wikipedia entry about the Society of Jesus:
In 1534, Ignatius and six other young men, including Francis Xavier and Peter Faber, gathered and professed vows of poverty, chastity, and later obedience, including a special vow of obedience to the Pope.
Jesus is weeping, Padre. Won’t you dry his tears?
