"Can't you see you're not making Christianity better, you're just making rock and roll worse?"*

... people who are in any way serious practicing Christians are increasingly a minority in our culture, and as such [are] ripe for being understood primarily based on their loudest representatives. That one of these should be a man angry that the local branch of Chase didn't have religious Christmas decorations on display seemed, if anything, a way of making people more averse to Christianity rather than the contrary. Indeed, if I were to list the difficulties that Christianity faces at this time, the failure to be endorsed by J. P. Morgan Chase does not seem high on the list.
I guess everyone chooses where to draw the line but sometimes the choice does seem rather arbitrary ... read the whole story at DarwinCatholic.

    Hilarious quote from King of the Hill!

    RE: the story -- and they talk about post-Christian Europeans, as if this is a bad thing! At least we are spared this silliness.

    Seriously, though, the poor man sounds like he might not have taken his medication that day.
