why watch “reality” TV when you can read the newspaper?

Saturday, March 19, local newspaper headline article about large well known area church dropping support for several local ministries serving the needy because those ministries also work with Catholics. They did not want to associated with any organization that supports “works based salvation” which is how they view Catholicism. This same church also dropped support of a local “rescue mission” because said group allowed local Muslim students from UNCC to serve a meal to the needy last November.

Monday, March 21, local newspaper headline article about(same) area church “asking for forgiveness” and stating they will continue to support the local ministries. Except the one that allows Muslims to participate.

Stay tuned.

Something else in Sunday’s “travel” section also caught my eye. An article about the faithful who visit Fatima, Portugal for religious reasons was accompanied with a photograph showing a devout believer making the traditional 100 ft. journey on their knees(from what to where wasn’t clear). But, they were wearing pads taped to the knees to make the “spiritual journey more comfortable”. OK. Let’s see, the times I’ve felt closest to god was “comfortably” in bed(doing whatever). Hallelujah. Amen.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
