“The world today lives online, so that’s where we have to evangelize.”

Random Thought 1: Fort Collins, Colorado has made national headlines in their fight to keep their public nudity law. According to the local newspaper, the Coloradan, the city has spent over $48,000 thus far to keep women from going topless in the city. With much more litigation to come in appeals etc.

I wonder, since society now has to recognize that some men are actually women and some women are actually men depending on their desire not their body, how does this law mean anything? — I’m confused.

Nevertheless, what is the culture coming to when these issues become how we spend these amounts of taxpayer money just to hold onto basic moral beliefs that have been held since the beginning of time. Do we all have the right to walk around naked in public, Lord help us. Even Adam and Eve knew enough to put fig  leaves on, to cover themselves after they sinned.

If the women’s group fighting for repeal of this law prevail, Christians will again be under attack for speaking out against public nudity? ----- and the beat goes on.

Random Thought 2: Speaking at his regular weekly public audience on March 22, Pope Francis said that the worldwide flood of migrants and refugees is posing the greatest tragedy the world has faced since World War II.

The Pope, who has frequently argued that world leaders must find ways to accommodate migrants and ensure that they are treated with dignity, renewed his appeal during his Wednesday audience. He added that societies must take steps to integrate new arrivals into their communities.

Random Thought 3: While teaching CCD class the deacon asks, "Now, Joey, tell me frankly do you say prayers before eating?"

"No sir," little Joey replied, "I don't have to. My Mom is a very good cook"
