I like to decorate with Voodoo Veve's and Quija Boards, Bones, Broken Doll Heads, Crosses, Shrunken Heads, and the like....It doesnt encourage visitors to stay long. :)
OMGosh!!! I am Catholic. Could you please at least get it straight why we use Holy Water??? It has absolutely nothing to do with the ridiculous reason in the article... Catholics use Holy Water as a reminder of their Baptism and the Baptismal promises made. They dip their finders (not the whole hand) into the font and bless themselves with the sign of the Cross...
Catholic churches have holy water fonts , typically of running/"living" water, for us to trace the sign of the cross (forehead=Father, chest/heart Son/Jesus, and Holy Spirit (left then rigfht shoulder). Home fonts have fallen away in this culture as have many Catholics who do not know that we are Catholic Christians-yes we are Christians, much to the disbelief of some. We are One (united), Holy (as much as any human can try to be), catholic (Note: lower case "c"=universal-look it up), and Apostolic (originating from St. Peter and the original 12 Apostles and their teachings of the Gospel) church with Jesus Christ as our Head; we are the Body of Christ. No one believes it has magical powers (maybe certain older folks and under catechised individuals) like in certain films, but we do this gesture to remind ourselves of our Baptism into Christ and his Church. No hocus-pocus.Pure faith. I thought journalists have "fact-checkers", no?
I have no trouble with an honest Atheist who can allow for other schools of thought in conflict with his or her lack of belief in the sourse of all life and creation. Either there is nothing when we die and Carl Sagen and his buddies will all be standing around making faces and saying "We told you so!" OR there's a incredible party and life without pain, suffering and pure jouyous love for all from the Architect of Life and his beloved children...us! Just one question; what do Atheists do without cash in the US? Burn all your money that says, "In God We Trust"? Cool, send it to me. I know many charities that could use it to help feed the poor. I will pray for you. Peace.
I have had ENOUGH! The top 10% owns over 90% of all wealth. WHY? Well, take a look at this and you will see. Do a gooogle search of ' FAST_SLICK_RICH ' and go to the first site. Click on one of the insurance pages to see how they are getting tax free cash and how you can too. It is a must see if you want to get out of working the 9-5 life.'
of it, I did have a lovely shrine on a shelf consisting of a little ceramic garden gnome standing on a layer of silk flower petals in front of an ornately framed painting of the sky. That was where I burned incense and candles every time my roommate befouled the apartment with an enthusiastic
