On a tip from wits0, from Free Republic:
PARODY of OBAMA’s MUSLIM FAITH DENIALS (“Francis Xavier Christianson denies he is a Catholic”)
My name is Francis Xavier Christianson… AND I WANT TO KNOW WHY YOU KEEP ASKING ME IF I’M CATHOLIC?
Oh — i get it! just because my dad was born in Italy and — well i guess that is a Catholic country… you naturally assume that I’m Catholic or something — still that’s a big leap isn’t it?
Ok, ok, sure – my dad WAS Catholic and he (and mom) gave me a Christian name… and of course it is also true that all of dad’s realtives (including my half-siblings) are Catholic…
And yes, sure my half-siblings will TELL you that I’m Catholic but how would they know? That’s just what my dad told them!
Before you bring it up — I’ll admit it — my step-father was also a Catholic and he did move my mom and me to Spain — which is also (I guess) a Catholic country — and sure he registered me on official government documents as a “Catholic”… but that was really just a… well… a silly little typo (that he kept making over and over)
SO — NOW THAT I HAVE CLEARED THAT UP — WHY DO YOU INSIST ON ASKING ME IF I’M A CATHOLIC?
Just because I recently slipped-up in a TV interview and discussed “My Christian Faith?”
People forget their religious beliefs all the time! Once I thought I was Jewish for a whole weekend! Heck — for at least the last 18 months or so I’ve thought I was Jesus!
Sure, I went by the name Barry — ummm — I mean “Frank” for a little while in High School — but then I made a big point of insisting later that everyone call me “Francis Xavier” — because I really, really wanted to emphasize how NOT Catholic I am. ’cause I’m not — really — I swear. See, a REAL Catholic wouldn’t swear right?
And is it my fault that a whole bunch of famous “Catholics” love me and want me to be president? I can’t control what Father Farahkan — err “Father Flanagan” has to say! It’s a free country (for the moment anyway.)
SO — WHY DO YOU KEEP ASKING ME IF I’M CATHOLIC?
IS IT BECAUSE YOU ARE RACISTS?
I’d be careful if I were you… my wife Michelle has plans for dealing with racists like you after the election…
