Shrillary Wants to Know Who Painted Our Lady of Guadalupe

Isn't it nice not to have that boob W botching our foreign relations anymore? The latest deft diplomacy from our new Secretary of State:

During her recent visit to Mexico, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unexpected stop at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe and left a bouquet of white flowers "on behalf of the American people," after asking who painted the famous image.

The reason the Basilica is the among the most famous Catholic shrines in the world is that the image is believed to have been imprinted miraculously on the cloak of St. Juan Diego in 1531. It has been associated with other unexplainable phenomena, including its lack of decay.

After observing it for a while, Mrs. Clinton asked "who painted it?" to which Msgr. [Diego] Monroy responded "God!"

Maybe he should have told her it was by the same guy who did the Shroud of Turin.

There's a downside for the media to having installed the Moonbat Messiah in the White House. If Republicans made a gaff like this, they could have milked it for weeks. But lest it reflect badly on Chairman Zero, the story barely made the news.

Afterwards, Shrillary attended to more reverent business:

Secretary of State Clinton was presented on Friday evening with the Margaret Sanger Award at a Planned Parenthood event in Houston (see earlier story). The award, says Planned Parenthood, is presented annually to recognize "leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement."

Margaret Sanger was a Marxist with views on eugenics very similar to Hitler's. As founder of the taxpayer-funded abortion mill Planned Parenthood, she was responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of babies. You might call her the anti-Mary.

Shrillary guffawing at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

On a tip from Byron.

Unbelievable! This from a member of the smartest administration in history?

Speaking of 'unbelievable,' anyone catch Geithner on Meet the Press? He actually had the nerve to say with a straight face that we need to "learn to live within our means." Host David Gregory just nodded in agreement. How could he not ask Geithner why this philosophy doesn't apply to the federal government.

Wow! Anyone who's been to Mexico even once knows the Virgin of Guadalupe was not painted by human hands. We must have the dumbest Secretary of State in the world. She obviously doesn't believe in doing any homework whatsoever before visiting a foreign country. She is the very definition of an "ugly American."

Ahh yes. The folks who are enlightened, worldly, and wise in the ways of multiculturalism.

Giving DVD's with the wrong Region code as a gift, writing letters to Jacques Chirac, giving a ridiculously silly "reset button" gift to Russia with the wrong translation, and now this.

This is what you get when you have clueless communists and the dumb ass ex-hippies who love them running the country.

Yes, J, and the hamhandedness is deeply embarassing.
MAS1916, I didn't watch that on TV, as I don't watch networks, but Hannity was talking about it at the top of his radio show. I'm still boiling. "People won't care about what they make, they'll care about what they do, what they contribute by what they do. They'll live within their means, and that makes the country stronger."
PURE COMMUNISM!!!! Can't we impeach based on failure to uphold the constitution (his oaf of office?)

Who painted that Mother Teresa grilled cheese sandwich?

She should have replied... "that's cute... now really, who painted this?"

"Gimme Money at March 30, 2009 1:06 PM"

I was ging to make a joke about your post, but I'll pass and instead say this:

I remember when items like the "Mother Terresa" toast were considered neat coincidences. Back in my youth, if my family had "seen Jesus" in a slice of toast, we might have said that it was proof that God was in our lives and then maybe broken off pieces for everyone to eat.

I say "might" and "maybe" because nothing like that has ever happened to us. People tend to over-react.

What an embarrassment! She is so arrogant that she did not prepare for her visit or such an idiot that she did not think to look this up before she walked into the most holy place in Mexico.

What a frickin boob. Didn't she used to be the smartest woman in the world? Right.

Nice to see the atheists here explaining how ridiculing the customs of other cultures helps our foreign relations.

Moonbats only like and have respect for religions when their zealots chant, "Death to America."

This administration is sooooooo Amature.

Gaff a minute.

Even the loyal MSM is starting to crack and soon, as public popularity for Obama and his Bennie Hill troup of pretenders drops into the 40% approval rating, they will enjoy calling a spade a spade on this one.

This idiot has a resume of social networking and being spouse of a famous pervert.

But even more crass, arrogant and stupid is the guy who hired her.

"My Beloved, chosen among the creatures, our kingdom is Thine; Thou shalt be the Lady and the Sovereign of the seraphim, of all the ministering spirits, the angels and of the entire universe of creatures. Attend, proceed and govern prosperously over them, for in our supreme consistory We give Thee power, majesty and sovereignty. Being filled with grace beyond all the rest, Thou hast humiliated Thyself in thy own estimation to the lowest place; receive now the supreme dignity deserved by Thee and, as a participation in our Divinity, the dominion over all the creatures of our Omnipotence. From thy royal throne to the centre of the earth Thou shalt reign; and by the power We now give Thee Thou shalt subject hell with all its demons and inhabitants. Let all of them fear Thee as the supreme Empress and Mistress of those caverns and dwelling-places of our enemies. In thy hands and at thy pleasure We place the influences and forces of the heavens, the moisture of the clouds, the growths of the earth; and of all of them do Thou distribute according to thy will, and our own will shall be at thy disposal for the execution of thy wishes. Thou shalt be the Empress and Mistress of the militant Church, its Protectress, its Advocate, its Mother and Teacher. Thou shalt be the special Patroness of the Catholic countries; and whenever they, or the faithful, or any of the children of Adam call upon Thee from their heart, serve or oblige Thee, Thou shalt relieve and help them in their labors and necessities. Thou shalt be the Friend, the Defender and the Chieftainess of all the just and of our friends; all of them Thou shalt comfort, console and fill with blessings according to their devotion to Thee. In view of all this We make Thee the Depositary of our riches, the Treasurer of our goods; we place into thy hands the helps and blessings of our grace for distribution; nothing do We wish to be given to the world, which does not pass through thy hands; and nothing do We deny, which Thou wishest to concede to men. Grace shall be diffused in thy lips for obtaining all that Thou wishest and ordainest in heaven and on earth, and everywhere shall angels and men obey Thee; because whatever is ours shall be thine, just as Thou hast always been ours; and Thou shalt reign with Us forever."

Hillary's wardrobe advisers were off here too.
A blood red suit - similar to the color of the plastic boxes in which the remains of human pre-nates are carried to laboratories, universities and cosmetic companies to be stripped and "utilised."

Maybe the wardrobe advisers were right on the money.

OLOG - end this slaughter.

St. Padre Pio had extraordinary gifts: the wounds of Christ, bilocation, reading souls, languages, healing etc. He also had enormous compassion and a sense of humor. He did not tolerate mockery of Christianity.

One day a group of mockers drove to his monastery to see this "freak" As they arrived, St. Pio was leaving (rare for him) to vote, and inevitably gathered a crowd.

The mockers got out of their car and starting asking where they could find St. Pio. The crowd started pointing at St. Pio, but the mockers failed to see him.

In supporting Planned Parenthood, Hillary mocks the Creator, the Commandments, the Constitution, all semblance of Human Rights, and Criminal Law.

Therefore she failed to see the most awesome aspect of the image of Guadalupe - its Divine origin.
Her loss, and that of the slaughtered infants of America.

Maybe she was busy praying for forgiveness of her and Bill's sins.
