St. Francis of Assisi Nominated for the U.S. Supreme Court

This is a guest “satirical” posting from Howard the Steel Worker

NEWS FLASH 06-15-09
It was reported yesterday that St. Francis of Assisi was discovered living in a housing project in the East Bronx.

In light of this, President Obama announced his withdraw of his nomination for Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court to be replaced with St. Francis because he has more empathy.

Rush Limbaugh immediately denounce St. Francis declaring that his agenda would be a class war on the rich and he must be a homosexual since his attire looks to be some sort of a dress.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, who is famous for sage wisdom statements, proclaimed, “We cannot chance judicial biased decisions from someone who openly admits loving animals a little too much.

Mean while, Catholic Bishops resolve to deny St. Francis communion since he accepted a posting from an administration that has pro-abortion viewpoints.

Anonymous sources suggest that all aforementioned could be brought around to support the nomination if it were found out that he was aliened with the former seminarian priest in the Russian Orthodox Christianity from Georgia, Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, who later became known as Joseph Stalin.


  1. Clever satire which is not-too far from the reality here in this so-called land of the free and home of the brave.

  2. I'd oppose St Francis.

    We already have at least three religious fanatics on the Supreme Court.

  3. Mr. Engineer, I haven't been checking your blog out as much as I should have been lately....
    computer crisis, rural emergencies...etc...
    but this was great! Great satire!
    Now the big stink is that Limbaugh referred to Sotomayer as a cleaning woman. Limbaugh should know better. He has already had too much trouble with cleaning women!

  4. Hello Microdot,
    I know too well about computer problems...I am typing on my NEW Laptop because the old was was dying a component at a time. Good $ after bad $ to fix one thing only to have another burn up / break down.
