Paris Hilton Professes Deep Catholic Faith

“Simple Life” actress Paris Hilton is a “deeply religious” Catholic, according to today’s New York Post. “Of course, they’re not going to be running pictures of me in church,” she said, alluding to her well-publicized preference for classical Latin over what she considers the “impure” ecclesiastical idiom favored by the Vatican.

Classical Latin arose from the evolution of prisca latinitas into sermo urbanus through a process of Hellenization. The ecclesiastical idiom, on the other hand, was an outgrowth of sermo cotidianus — a hybrid of sermo urbanus and sermo vulgaris.

Despite these linguistic differences, however, Hilton does not view her canon of scriptural interpretation as varying significantly from Church teaching. “Te totum applica ad textum; rem totam applica ad te,” explained the internet fucking video star in an interview with the homosexual magazine Out. And like fellow “devout Catholic” Stephen Colbert, Hilton embraces the traditional doctrine of trinitarian fictivity.

    One of the key tenants of this or any faith, and for me a founding principle of my athiest beliefs is: Quondam a meretricis , usquequaque a meretricis.

    After that, its easy to ignore and dispense with people like Paris Hilton.

    Just remember….Illic est haud deus. Is does nusquam esse

    Paris is playing Mother Teresa in some movie now too. Which I guess is scary, cause Paris Hilton has higher moral standards then Mother Tesera ever had :/

    The point is that for some reason people seem to need to worship SOMETHING. Celebrity worship comes from the same place as religion.

    I worship no one. You do not impress me. Neither does your car, money or clothing.

    Paris Hilton. ah, i knew she’s always been religious. remember that flick she’s impaling herself on some mediocre dick, she kept saying, “Oh, God! Oh, God! Oh, God!”

    If that’s not religious, I don’t know what is.

    Aaron, I don’t think so. Another version/

    obscurum per obscurius

    But as we all know,

    omnia dicta fortiora si dicta Latina

    My favorite is/

    I guess the Notre Dame’s online latin dictionary sucks then. Oh well, you definitely seem to know more latin than I do.
