Swallowed? I saw this on a fake news station this morning. He stated that everything went black for a period of 20 to 40 seconds. You know how time flies when you aren't having fun. After a period of time, he swam from the whale's mouth. He wasn't "swallowed."

He was spit out ... rather forcefully from the sound of it. From NYT.

Packard was approx 40ft down when he was gulped up.

His longtime fishing partner
, Josiah Mayo, was following him in their fishing vessel, the J&J, tracking him through the bubbles that rose from Mr. Packard’s breathing gear to the surface of the water.

The men had already caught 100 pounds of lobster, and Mr. Packard was about 40 feet underwater, looking for more.

Suddenly, the bubbles stopped, Mr. Mayo said. Then, the water began to churn violently. A creature breached the surface and for an agonizing split second, Mr. Mayo thought it was a white shark.

“I immediately thought it was the shark encounter that we’d unfortunately been preparing for for years,” he said in an interview on Saturday.

Then, he saw the fluke and the head of a whale. Moments later, he saw Mr. Packard fly out of the water.

“‘It tried to eat me,’” Mr. Packard sputtered, according to Mr. Mayo. The whale, a humpback, swam away as Mr. Mayo and another fisherman helped Mr. Packard back into the boat.

I looked up that guy just now, and he has been very active in the Prevention of Child Abuse. Seems like a guy that very much walks the walk and talks the talk.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Joseph_Rossetti
Proponent of using psychology in theological reflection

Rossetti has been an outspoken writer, lecturer and advocate for the importance of using the insights of modern psychology in collaboration with orthodox Catholic theology. As both an ordained Catholic priest and a licensed psychologist, he has said that there is no inherent contradiction between real truths uncovered by a secular science and the beliefs of the Catholic faith.[7] This insight is a consistent teaching of the Catholic Church. (See Fides et Ratio, an encyclical by John Paul II.)

Rossetti believes understanding and integrating psychology and church teachings is an important task for Catholic ministers and psychologists.[7] The healing program at Saint Luke Institute, a mental health treatment and education facility for Catholic priests and other Catholics which Rossetti headed from 1996 to 2009, has become a model for this “marriage” between best practices in psychology and psychiatry and Catholic theology.

Activist in the prevention of child abuse

Through his writings, workshops, research and participation in task forces, Rossetti has worked toward the prevention of child sexual abuse and raising awareness of the effects on victims. He has also worked on developing more effective treatment and supervision of offenders and creating institutional policies promoting education and prevention efforts.

He was a member of the 1993 “Think Tank” for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) on child sexual abuse. The group produced recommendations published by the USCCB's Secretariat for Priestly Life and Ministry saying, “We are concerned that the hierarchy’s authority and credibility in the United States is eroding because of a perceived inability to deal more effectively with the problem of child sexual abuse…We urge the bishops to respond to this tragedy decisively, pastorally, and immediately.”[8] Many of the recommendations were eventually adopted after the 2002 sexual abuse crisis erupted.

In 1994, Rossetti was a founding board member of the Interfaith Sexual Trauma Institute, which promotes the prevention of [sexual abuse], exploitation, and harassment through research, education and publication.

Rossetti was one of the original consultants in 1998 that helped develop the National Catholic Risk Retention Group’s child abuse prevention program called VIRTUS. He was an expert adviser to the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishop's United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Ad Hoc Committee on Sexual Abuse that drafted the 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People—commonly referred to as the “Dallas Charter.” He also participated in the April 2003 Vatican Symposium on child abuse sponsored by the Pontifical Academy for Life. The Symposium was convened to “provide a deeper understanding of these issues within Church circles, and facilitate contact between the Church and the world of science.”[9]

Rossetti published a study documenting the spiritual damage to victims of child sexual abuse by Catholic priests in 1995.[10] In 1997, he published a companion study that demonstrated that entire congregations are harmed when their priest commits child sexual abuse. One of the study’s conclusions was: “for the church to demonstrate to Catholics, especially parishioners of an accused priest, a swift, credible and concerned response to allegations of clergy misconduct.”[11] Shortly after becoming President of Saint Luke Institute in 1997, Rossetti instituted the policy of recommending to dioceses and religious orders that priests or religious, having sexually molested a minor anytime in the past, never be returned to any unsupervised work or contact with minors. He has stated “one case [of abuse] is one too many.”[12] During his tenure as president, Saint Luke Institute treated 150 priests who had sexually abused minors with four of these known to have relapsed, yielding a very low relapse rate of 2.7%.[13]

In February 2012, Msgr. Rossetti was an invited speaker to the Gregorian University in Rome’s international symposium on the sexual abuse of minors, which was attended by bishops and religious superiors representing the Catholic Church around the world. His paper entitled Learning From Our Mistakes, highlighted six common mistakes that Church leadership have made in dealing with child sexual abuse including being manipulated by offenders and not listening first to victims, underestimating the prevalence of child sexual abuse, believing that perpetrators could be cured and risk-free, misunderstanding forgiveness and putting them back in unsupervised ministry, insufficient human formation of priests (especially in human sexuality), and missing the “red flags” of impending abuse. Rossetti made a plea that other Church organizations around the world learn from these mistakes and implement child-safe programs immediately so that the Church becomes “an international leader in promoting the safety and welfare of children.”

He also recommended a “victims first policy,” reporting all allegations to civil authorities, developing safety plans to supervise perpetrators, strong child-safe education programs throughout the Church, better screening and formation for candidates to the priesthood, and better education for Church leaders to recognize and intervene before abuse occurs. He predicted that America’s “zero tolerance” policy would necessarily and eventually become the Church’s policy throughout the world. He finished his talk by saying, “Our calling is to become the voice of millions of abused children. We must stand in the corner of those who are hurt and suffering. One day victims of child sexual abuse will look upon us, not as their foe, but as their advocates and their friends. That day is not yet fully here and so we are not yet fully the Church we are called to be.”


Life is really simple. We insist on making it complicated.

Detroit police: Man throws shoe with gun in it at cockroach, bullet strikes him in foot

DETROIT – A man trying to kill a cockroach ended up with a bullet wound in his foot Tuesday morning at a home in the 18700 block of Albion Street in Detroit.

Police said the 50-year-old man, who uses a wheelchair, threw his shoe at the cockroach in an effort to kill the bug. However, his revolver was inside the shoe. The gun fell out of the shoe, discharged and a bullet struck him in his foot.

His condition is not known at this time.

I mean, the real question here, is did he get the roach??

They didn't make that phone call because they wanted it to be true and because it went viral and got clicks.

And they'll keep doing it because no one will hold them accountable.
