All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

In the assault on the religious aspects of Christmas by the intolerant bigots on the left there has been a growing tendency to refer to Christmas trees as Holiday trees. This might not seem like such a big deal since trees are not an overtly religious symbol. However this article in Our Sunday Visitor explains in very brief terms teh history of Christmas tree and what religious significance it has come to have over the years. After reading this it would be difficult to regard teh term "Holiday Tree" with anything other than the scorn it deserves.

In a related article we are reminded once again how the term "inclusive" as currently employed is really anything but what the word implies.
