Ditto-Heads, Glenn Beckers, 700 Clubbers, Ingrahaminites, Fox Newsers, Acolytes of Franklin Graham, Radical Catholics, et. al. may comprise as much as thirty-eight to forty-two percent of the population of this country.  The Taliban may be a threat in Afghanistan.  The "Conservative" indoctrinated Right is most definitely an existential threat to this country, the environment and the world. -- Kevin Tully

As a Catholic I never understood why me and my fellow Catholic neighbors just didn't go rent a helicopter, fill it with holy wafers and drop 'em all over Houston or Austin or San Antonio, if those little precious crackers are what we say they are, man let's rent a transport plane and drop 'em on Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, the Sudan, let's turn the whole world on to love.

"I came into town packing a big old hammer
and I fell into a reviere about God
For so many years I was convinced it didn't matter
then I drove a nail through my arm
understanding the pain it all was shattered
I smeared my blood all over my walls

There was this crazy woman that once took my hand
said I wanna know the feel of Jesus' touch
Now I know she wasn't crazy
and it really wasn't asking too much
just a small simple touch
it wasn't asking too much
just a gift in all of us"  This is part of a song I wrote a long time ago.  It's a true story.  I'm a carpenter.

My buddy, Kevin, posted the stuff below at opednews.  He told me the other day that Conservatives hate Bruce Springsteen and Woody Guthrie.  I don't think Bruce hates them and Woody's dead.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  When I was a chemistry student, my girlfriend (3+ / 0-)

    came up to me with a question; "Why don't churches just pour Holy Water into the ocean? Or a big lake? Does Holiness depend on a certain molality?"

    I was, as a former Catholic, nonplussed. Why doesn't some priest or bishop convert Lake Michigan into the world's biggest font of Holy Water?

    Just a thought, but it's easier to get people to drink the water rather than eat a cracker.

    And I suspect he's none too fond of them--never has been, never will be.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

  •  There are special basins where holy water (0+ / 0-)

    and other "sacred items" (I guess the consecrated wine that isn't consumed during mass) called piscinas.  These drain directly into the ground, so that the holy water, etc, doesn't mingle with sewage.  Catholic and Episcopal churches usually have them in the sacristy.
