“I think Saint Romo is of particular importance for us today because religious freedoms are being threatened, even in our country, and many people, including the government, are trying to marginalize the voice of Christians in the public square. Saint Romo stands against that, saying ‘Long Live Christ the King!’ to his persecutors and the government soldiers who killed him.” wrote Williams.

Yah, blame the government for your declining population.

I think this will probably be a good thing. I stopped to get a newspaper just on account of free donut holes in the paper. didn't see any. There was a man reading the front page a local deacon. He said this is bad for the baptist church esp. the tithes. look first service 600 people. I thought oh well that's what u all get for being so very mean spirited and hatefull. This was even in the chatsworth times.

Most of the people who will attend the Catholic church are comprised of the congregations who used the donated space provided weekly by several of the area Baptist churches, who received no tithes/donations in exchange for the use of their space. If anything, those who donated space will now save on electric and water costs that were used during the times the spaces were used rather than' losing tithes'.

I believe that it is a good idea for the community to have a catholic church. There are many of the catholic faith who have to drive to Dalton or to other areas just to attend their mass. As for the comment about it bringing an infestation of mexicans to murray county, I am sorry that you believe this way. There are many whites who are Catholic. It is not just one ethnicity. Open your eyes!

Murray county is already infested with ignorant racist. It is "Mexico" not "medico", majority of people from Mexico are white. White is a race...

I wonder how the majority of people from Mexico
are called 'white'????
They are descendants of Spanish origin.
Even born in the USA they are of descendants of the Spanish or Mexican race.
Not CAUCASIAN,which is white.
That's not racist,it's just the way it is.

If their is a Caucasian catholic in Murray it is because they drifted from the north to Murray. Look at the catholic church in Dalton ga. it is predominately Hispanic.

No, it is not "just the way it is". No respectable biologist/anthropologist considers there to be a "Mexican" race.

People from Spain are white. Fair skin, dark hair make up the majority of the population. They're a mix of Mediterranean and Nordic.

People from Mexico are a mix. They're almost perfectly 50-50 European/Amerindian. A light skinned Mexican doesn't necessarily mean they have more European ancestry either. It just means they have a recessive gene.

The beautiful people you see on Mexican TV are mostly of Spanish Decent and most of the ones that come here are from Indian Decent besides the Shorties that are from Guatamala and they are almost exclusively Indian.
The Spanish Mexicans look down on the Indian population like lite skinned Blacks look down on dark skinned blacks.
Spain is and has been a mixed race of people. There are not many pure Spanish. Some Middle Eastern infulence, some Moors, Some Italian, some French, miixed blood.

Go back and really read the definition of caucasian.....
never mind.....
here it is again.....
word for word.....

Medical Definition of CAUCASIAN:

1: of or relating to the white race of humankind as classified according to physical features

2: of or relating to the white race as defined by law specifically as composed of persons of European, North African, or southwest Asian ancestry

3: of, constituting, or characteristic of a race of humankind native to Europe, North Africa, and southwest Asia and classified according to physical features —used especially in referring to persons of European descent having usually light skin pigmentation

I didn't say it or make it up.
I just looked it up and put it here for y'all to read.

That doesn't mean that there is a "Mexican" race.'Mexican' is a nationality not a race. Define "white race".

You're going about this the wrong way.

Mexicans can identify as white because they are technically 50% European. Their skin color may not be as FAIR as their European biological ancestors, but they can still classify as white.

You can even argue that Caucasian is an incorrect term, as it has been proven by scientists "white people" don't originate from the Caucus mountains.

Afghans are also considered caucasians. What is their color of skin?
