Bare shoulders: Not ok for women, fine for Son of God

By David Futrelle

There are a lot of guys out there who not-so-secretly resent women for having bodies that get them all hot and bothered.

Warren Farrell, the intellectual grandfather of the Men’s Rights movement, famously warned men to beware of the “cleavage power” and the “miniskirt power” of young women. Incels and MGTOWs today rail against women “torturing” them by wearing skin-tight yoga pants. Hell, last week I wrote about one horny Redditor who blamed women for tempting men by showing their arms in public.

So what about in insidious threat of shoulders, which in addition to being “the laterally projecting part of the human body formed of the bones and joints with their covering tissue by which the arm is connected with the trunk” are also sometimes nice to look at?

Enter Father Kevin M. Cusick. On Sunday, the priest and former military chaplain caused a bit of a stir on Twitter after he suggested that women shouldn’t show their bare shoulders in church lest the sight of such a tempting bit of skin cause the men and boys to suddenly start feeling a bit funny in their pants.

Ladies, a priest I know was forced on Sunday to ask a woman at Mass to cover her shoulders. Please help the priest to protect the purity of the men at holy Mass by choosing to dress modestly. The alternative is awkward for all involved. Thank you.

Naturally, more than a few Twitterers took issue with Cusik’s stance. And so he doubled down, and doubled down again, launching into a full-on meltdown that lasted until this morning.

When we are attacked and reviled, spat upon and calumniated we have an opportunity to be configured to Him.
Guess I triggered ‘em. What button should I push tomorrow? Suggestions? They probably need something else to occupy their time.

But he topped even those tweets with his final comment on the subject, in which he compared himself, and the treatment he’d gotten from critics on Twitter, to Jesus getting nailed to the cross. No, really.

As it turns out, Cusick’s not just worried about sexy lady shoulders; he’s also worried that women’s bare feet could give priests boners. Several years ago, you see, the Pope said it was ok to include women and girls in Holy Thursday foot-washing rituals. But Cusick worried that foot-washing priests might get turned on by “cute” lady feet.

No man should deign to wash another man’s wife’s feet, it is unseemly at bes
The spectacle of prelates running around begging Protestants and women for the opportunity wash their feet is disgraceful.

That last tweet about washing men’s feet seems just a little bit ironic when one starts poking around a little more in Cusick’s Twitter history.

Because, as it turns out, shoulders and feet aren’t his main obsessions. For every tweet he’s written about the dangers of improperly exposed female flesh, there are dozens (hundreds?) of tweet about the evils of gay men and their dirty doings — both in the Catholic Church and in the world at large. (He has much less to say about lesbians.)

In Cusick’s mind, the Church doesn’t have a pedophile problem; it’s got a “homosexual problem.”

The sexual scandal in the Church is homosexual in nature.
The only structure that enables abuse is the homosexual network. 

Which has absolutely nothing to do with Christ, the Church or Christianity.

Not only is this “homosexual network” intent on sexually abusing boys; it’s also, in Cusick’s mind, “perverting” the Church’s teachings in order to promote the mortal sin of sodomy.

Praying for faithful Catholics who are hated and shunned by family members for not caving to the agenda of homosexualism and same sex marital simulation.

Apparently the only way to ward off this “homosexualist” menace is with the magic of Latin.

He’s a bit obsessed with the whole sodomy thing.

Sodomy, the use of the sexual faculty outside of sacramental marriage between one man and one woman, open to new life, exclusively and until death, is intrinsically evil.
Rampant sodomy at all levels of society was a harbinger of the downfall of the greatest civilization of the ancient world & can do same now

He also has some, well, interesting views on “so-called ‘trans'” folks. Here’s his reaction to a news story about a trans woman teacher.

And here’s his, well, novel theory about the nature of transness.

The only "trans" every human person needs is the Transfiguration in Christ through His Church from sin to holiness and from death to life.

Needless to say, he won’t be celebrating Pride month.

Here’s my statement:

#Pride events are toxic and immoral. No one should take part in any way.

Have a good day.
Wrong: No priest who wishes to be truly Catholic and in good standing with the Church can promote pride month with its attendant displays of nudity, simulated sexual activity, suggestive and provocative clothing and worse. Children should never be exposed to these sinful events.

But Cusick isn’t just obsessed with sex. His Twitter history is a virtual smorgasbord of unhinged takes on almost every hotbutton social issue. He thinks abortion leads to “bloodthirsty mobs on the streets.”

He regularly links to alarming “news” articles on the alleged evils of migrant Muslim “invaders,” including at least one article from rabid far-right Islamaphobe Pam Geller. His own opinions on the subject are only slightly less rabid than hers:

Just because we've voluntarily laid down our arms in total self-defeat with the loss of hope through an eclipse of faith does not mean the Muslim incursion is not an invasion.
What an inversion today signifying massive societal disorientation: invasion of raping, plundering, non uniformed military age men is now labeled "immigration". Laziness, surrender or fatal ennui.
The French are being slaughtered by the invaders. Is it not time to vote for their self defense?

Needless to say, Cusick also hates feminism, especially when it involves young boys being taught that women’s suffrage was a good thing.

But the strangest thing I found in Cusick’s Twitter history? He’s apparently afraid of being enslaved — by Beto O’Rourke.

Crying out for enslavement to the next tyrant in succession

It’s a weird and more than slightly unhinged reaction to a young man standing on a car spouting vaguely lefty political platitudes. But, hey, anything to get Cusick’s mind off of sodomy, I guess.

Father Cusick fucking quit the internet!

Apparently, the twitter is full of demons:

“Twitter has a dark, demonic side, raging against God and the Church,” the victimized priest declared in an opinion piece at The Wanderer, entitled, “When The Twitter Mob Came After Me.”

“That brood of vipers and braying, bloodthirsty hounds lurking in readiness was visited upon me with nearly unrelenting fury and incredible magnitude last week,” Father Cusick wrote.

“Wave after wave of calumnious, blasphemous, and obscene memes, gifs, and messages were posted with comments, likes, and retweets ranging up to the tens of thousands. Those who styled themselves my enemies crowed with pleasure that I had been ‘ratioed’ — when negative comments outnumber likes and retweets. Many called for me to delete my account when they weren’t wishing a more horrible fate upon me. Blue check mark accounts with nearly 200k followers piled on.”

Obviously I wish the worst possible fate for him: a combination of self-awareness and empathy. Of course, that seems unlikely.

So, he was fine with all the Nazis harassing people on Twitter, but he gets his ass handed to him over some boneheaded comments and all of a sudden, Twitter is an evil, Satanic place and he’s outta there. Gotta love the Christlike concern for others on display.

I wonder, do all fundamentalist Christians declare themselves literally martyrs when someone says they’re full of shit, or is it a catholic priest thing? Because Cusick is not the first one I saw doing this.

Not that I’m surprised that this is the type of personality that priesthood attracts in XXI century.

At least Yzek didn’t try that too much… yet.

Oh, I think all the Fundies do. Just look at the number of people who nail themselves to the cross every December over hearing retail employees say “happy holidays” instead of ” merry Christmas.”

washing feet is literally an annual ritual in the church that isnt supposed to be gender-based (maybe in the past?). Like a group of randos get up in front of everyone and the priest washes their feet. Annually. Because Jesus washed his disciples’ feet and had his washed. In a time of hygeine difficulties and walking miles in sandals, this was majorly humbling and it still kinda is for a priest.
It’s supposed to be non-sexual, you are supposed to be modest, yes, but also not supposed to have or indulge pervy thoughts about, like, feet. Or shoulders. Its kinda on you to pray it out.
Also, the idea of a priest saying “triggered” goes against the fake dignity they are supposed to show.
