Anyone here know Hermit John?

  • A man showed up at my house today (Thanks, Fr. Pfeiffer and Pablo!) and is trying to convince me to become a home-aloner.

    Has anyone run into this man before?

    He wasn't up for polite conversation -- he very much wants to stick to his spiel about the Third Secret, the Conciliar Church, and his own private interpretations thereof.

    He said he's not "with" any group -- he's just seeking a true priest. So far, no luck (according to him).

    He said he "doesn't know" if there are any such priests out there. Of course, that's what every dogmatic home-aloner says!

    Again, THIS is why I didn't want my address plastered on the Internet.

    This man has a camo "backpack" and he hitchhiked to get here. He wears a habit like a brother of some sort, with a pectoral cross and monastic (bowl) haircut. Quite a character.

    Apparently he's hitchhiking to all the Resistance chapels.

    He said he found my chapel on a list online.

    He had a very nice video camera in his backpack, and he was in my metal storage building/chapel which he was filming *privately* for a number of minutes. Hopefully he wasn't filming the 1/3 of the building that is our own family storage area.

    So he hitchhikes across the country like poor hermit, but he has a $500 video camera? Why? Who does he work for? The Dimond brothers?

    He is basically a dogmatic home aloner.

    Oh, and another thing -- he wasn't all that interested in talking to me -- mostly my wife. Maybe women fall for his spiel more often than the men do?
    My wife is the one who answered the door; I was taking a nap at the time. When I got up he was in the chapel doing his private filming.

    The whole thing made me very uncomfortable. I'm running this chapel for God and the good of the Church, not myself, or I'd close the whole thing down right now.

  • I have never heard of him, but it alarms me that he sought out your wife's attention and not yours.
    Are you able to lock your chapel? Did you ask that he erase the video footage?

    He seems a bit hispanic; he is missing several teeth, if that helps.

    He's certainly not a young guy. 40's at least.

  • What kind of half-assed excuse did he have for wanting to video your chapel??  That sounds very suspicious!

    That earns Pablo a "Look here you dumb son of a b..." email.

    Not this one, but one with the same basic playbook.

  • Wow!  If you don't have a good guard dog (or two) now might be a good time get one.  Especially since this fellow seemed interested in filming your property and in talking to your wife.

    Here is one option, Fila brasileiro (Brazilian Mastiff)

    http://dogbreeds.bulldoginformation.com/fila-brasileiro.html


    And to back up the dogs, depending on your spread either one of these will do:

  • Maybe he is just another lost soul searching for the truth out there, or perhaps someone who is posting here searching.

    I would be much more inclined to think the better of a man if he didn't show up on my property with a video camera!

    Have fun playing with the puppies...

    Beautiful dogs.  For a tactical shotgun, I'm leaning toward a Remington 870.  The rifle looks nice.  What do you think of the Ruger Mini?

  • Turning up uninvited to gun owning US Trads properties.

    He won't be alive much longer.

    What instructions have you given your wife if a group of famished Hell's Angels or Obama's SWAT team turn up while you're having a nap?

    I do like ruger mini's, but the AR platform seems to always have better accuracy.  The mini is dead reliable though, and available in 7.62x39 if you prefer that flavor of cheap ammo...

  • If you put yourself out there as a mass coordinator then this type of thing will be happening. Also strange people will be alling/coming by looking for mass and spiritual guidance.

  • Is this freak still around?

    Somewhat related to the topic of hermits (real ones), does Bishop Williamson approve of lay hermits?
