Good for a laugh

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. The plaque was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it.
The seven-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly, "Good morning Alex."
"Good morning pastor," replied the young man, still focused on the plaque.
"Pastor McGhee, what is this?" Alex asked.
"Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service."
Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alex's voice was barely audible when he asked, "Which service, the 8:30 or the 11:00?"

An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven?"
The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll just run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says, 'For Heaven's sake, Jimmy, come in or stay out!'"

NO. I had no idea that Starbucks was engaged in supporting the Nazis at Planned Parenthood.

And to think I went there on Friday! I really feel like cursing right now.

Oh boy.

Tom, I found that out over at Catholic Answers. Since then I have only gone there on occasion,as I try to boycott stores I know support the culture of death and homosexuality. McDonald's is another one, BTW. Maybe I'll do a post that highlights all these businesses.

It's hard to boycott them completely, especially if you are with a group of friends or family who wants to go there.
