Wow. Author Joyce Carol Oates recently grossly played the race card, after wishing that NRA members get shot. Now she is turning her hate-filled rantings on Catholics. Are you Catholic? Well, you must be out of your mind, according to Ms. Oates.

She made a similar disgusting remark recently, when praising the repugnant Andrew “Uterine Forensic Specialist” Sullivan on his pope-bashing.

Why be Catholic, you cuckoo pants bitter clingers? The pope wears a funny costume and all!

Contemptible.

You should feel bad about your intolerant and hateful views, Joyce. However, that would require some shame and human decency. Clearly, you are lacking in those departments.

    I would just like to thank Joyce because if it were not for her I would not be going back to my Catholic religion. I left a long time ago because I, perhaps, felt like she has and does right now. Why would I want to be a Catholic? Really good question, Joyce! All Catholics should ask themselves that. The answer might surprise them as I suspect a lot of Catholics are such only because that’s how they were brought up. By thinking about WHY they’re Catholic might just might make them/me a better Catholic and not indulge in the grossness that seems to be prevalent in the US at the present time in all aspects of of society.

    I came back to being Catholic after thinking of what would make an intelligent person like you to want someone dead! I still don’t really know WHY but for me, after hearing a friend say, I don’t believe in or go to church because it doesn’t do anything for me so why bother, I thought, hmmm am I supposed to get something out of believing and going to church. I don’t think that’s WHY. I’m still not sure WHY but one thing I do know is that I will find out. And I won’t find out by being a hateful person who constantly looks at other people with opposite views and wants them ‘whatever’.

    You other Catholics? Instead of casting stones like I see in a lot of your comments. Thank Joyce for asking the question. Then start thinking about your answer. You’ll be a much better Catholic and a much better person for it.

    Joyce, as opposed to being sarcastic, how about asking that question in quiet person to person with a Catholic. You might find that their answers just might either bring you back (if that’s the case) or start you thinking about what kind of person you could be.

        Priests behave as an intermediary between God and man, providing both guidance and liturgical clarity.

        Don’t need to be Catholic. You sound like a good person and probably are. From what I see though — I think Joyce just would ask you as well; why do you believe in God etc?. Only you can determine that. Assume you know — if not you, also, might want to ask yourself WHY.

    She sounds bitter and unhappy.

  • Maxx

    Good lord, she looks like she should be churning butter at some post-Revolutionary War reenactment camp.

  • russemerson

    It’s people like this author person who have driven me, basically a hardcore Calvinist, closer and closer to my Catholic brothers and sisters.

    We must all hang together, or we shall most assuredly all hang separately, as the man once said.

  • Gallatin

    I think I’ll go over to the post from Patricia Heaton on Ash Wednesday and let her know how wonderful I think she is.

  • DrSamHerman

    Is a shredded, burnt-out 60’s relic hag still relevant?

    GK Chesterton and Oliver Wilde also asked the same thing… then they converted to Catholicism.

    Shut up, Oates, is my point.

    @Joyce Carol Oates: Why would anyone in their right mind support you and the trash you write?

    Why be Catholic?

    Because it’s the Truth, which is Jesus.

  • no good deed

    At this point, what difference does another question from Joyce Carol Oates make?

  • SJ’s Dad

    Joyce,
    Seriously, why would anyone DELIBERATELY try to look like Squidward Tentacles?

  • snaved41

    I wondered about reading her books . I won’t wonder anymore. Not a chance.

  • Hauntedgirl

    Waning book sales, I take it JCO.

    • NY Republican

      she had book sales to begin with?

    I wonder who in their right mind would want to be Joyce Carol Oats? And I’m not even Catholic but I do own guns.

    This is what happens when you are soulless, you rot from the inside out….and to be honest she’s been rotting a long time.

  • grais

    Disregarding, for the moment, her ill-mannered dig at Catholics, she thinks the victims of cruise ship disasters are willingly involved. ??

    And this woman writes books??!!??
    And people want to read them??!!??

    • NY Republican

      i dont think anyone actually wants to read them the only people who do are forced

    why would anyone in their right mind pay attention to a llama-faced, miserable harpy?

    Who?

  • Rob Stevely

    I still have no idea who she is.

    • disqus_YoVeT6gqV6

      Unfortunately, she’s one of those professors at our major Universities that are “training” our kids.!

  • anjullyn

    JCO…(I can’t bear to call it a woman) tweets: Is Valentine’s Day another of those holidays calculated to make some people feel really bad? My opinion? She has felt bad EVERY Valentine’s Day which is why she’s so bitter and hatefilled.

  • BeeKaaay

    The Nazis speak again.

  • Herman LaClair

    she has the audacity to give fashion advice? she looks like a camel in drag.

  • arrow2010

    Notice which religion she doesn’t single out. The M-one.

  • DANEgerus

    Why would anyone in their right mind be a hateful sneering shut in like Joyce Carol Oates

  • BeeKaaay

    Why would anyone in their right mind be a leftwingwacko?

  • NY Republican

    who is she again?

  • Mapache

    It is people like her that remind me why I am and shall remain a Catholic. It is strange that nothing impacts a person so little as another’s religion yet it raises their ire so profoundly…or is it that as they enter their twilight years they wonder if maybe they have been wrong all along?

  • Dale Birmingham

    She reminds me of that troll in the hobbit. I understand now.

  • Adela Wagner

    Kinda weird her married name is “Gross”…

    Like Cher, reading her tweets gets my eyeballs stuck in the back of my head.

    Seeing her picture always makes think she is enjoying the smell of her own farts
