Lagniappe: Vampires and the Roman Catholic Church

From my quote journal.
When it comes to fighting vampires and performing exorcisms, the Roman Catholic Church has the heavy artillery. Your other religions are good for everyday theological tasks, like steering their members into heaven, but when the undead lunge up out of their graves, you want a priest on the case. As a product of Catholic schools, I take a certain pride in this pre-eminence.

  1. I tend to lose all interest in vampires when they take away those weaknesses. Without a fear of sunlight you just have pale fashion models on a strange sort of dental plan.
