I urge all right-thinking people to send "action-alerts" to everyone they know when you spot one of their recruitment drives, such as when they stage a "St. Patrick's Day Parade" and display their deplorable "lifestyle " on our public streets !
They have opened "indoctrination centers" all over the country and we must work to shut down these centers of propaganda as fast as possible ! Only thru constant vigilance can we stop these purveyors of promoting their horrendous "alternative lifestyle" on our children !
DON'T FORGET to send out your "action-alerts" to everyone you know when you see one of their disgusting public displays.
I have nothing against Roman Catholics, but they should keep their private behavior where no one can see it.

This information is for Catholics only. It must not be divulged to non-Catholics.

The less they know about our rituals and code words, the better off they are.

AMEN: The only part of a prayer that everyone knows.

BULLETIN: Your receipt for attending Mass.

CHOIR: A group of people whose singing allows the rest of the Parish to lip-sync.

HOLY WATER: A liquid whose chemical formula is H2OLY.

HYMN: A song of praise usually sung in a key three octaves higher than that of the congregation's range.

RECESSIONAL HYMN: The last song at Mass often sung a little more quietly,since most of the people have already left.

INCENSE: Holy Smoke!

JESUITS: An order of priests known for their ability to find colleges with good basketball teams.

JONAH: The original 'Jaws' story.

JUSTICE: When kids have kids of their own.

KYRIE ELEISON: The only Greek words that most Catholics can recognize besides gyros and baklava.(for you non-Catholics it means Lord have mercy)

MAGI: The most famous trio to attend a baby shower.

MANGER: Where Mary gave birth to Jesus because Joseph wasn't covered by an HMO.(The Bible's way of showing us that holiday travel has always been rough.)

PEW: A medieval torture device still found in Catholic churches.

PROCESSION: The ceremonial formation at the beginning of Mass consisting of altar servers, the celebrant, and late parishioners looking for seats.

RECESSIONAL: The ceremonial procession at the conclusion of Mass led by parishioners trying to beat the crowd to the parking lot.

RELICS: People who have been going to Mass for so long, they actually know when to sit, kneel, and stand.

TEN COMMANDMENTS: The most important Top Ten list not given by David Letterman.

USHERS: The only people in the parish who don't know the seating capacity of a pew.

Little known facts about the Catholic Church in Las Vegas:
There are more churches in Las Vegas than casinos. During Sunday services at the offertory, some worshippers contribute casino chips as opposed to cash.

Some are sharing their winnings - some are hoping to win. Since they get chips

from so many different casinos, and they are worth money, the Catholic churches

are required to send all the chips into the diocese for sorting. Once sorted

into the respective casino chips, one junior priest takes the chips and makes

the rounds to the casinos turning chips into cash. And he, of course, is known as

The Chip Monk.

I'm a Christian. But I do believe in the separation of church and state.
And President Theodore Roosevelt DID have "In God We Trust" removed from our coins when he was President.
You're not going to say that Long Island Teddy was evil, are you ?
Typically disingenuous, of you Daniel.
Teddy, you see, did NOT remove the motto from our coins.
In a letter to William Boldly on 1907-NOV-11, TR wrote:

"My own feeling in the matter is due to my very firm conviction that to put such a motto on coins, or to use it in any kindred manner, not only does no good but does positive harm, and is in effect irreverence, which comes dangerously close to sacrilege...It is a motto which it is indeed well to have inscribed on our great national monuments, in our temples of justice, in our legislative halls, and in building such as those at West Point and Annapolis -- in short, wherever it will tend to arouse and inspire a lofty emotion in those who look thereon. But it seems to me eminently unwise to cheapen such a motto by use on coins, just as it would be to cheapen it by use on postage stamps, or in advertisements."

You are, again, a phony and a prevaricator of the first order.

The Chip Monk? I can't believe I fell for that. Great post - you know I'll be repeating that joke.
