Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Well, That’s What Happens When You’re Being Rude

October 12th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

While I was walking out of a Rochester business yesterday, I started looking at bumper stickers. Some were entertaining, some purposeless, and some simply insulting. On one car alone, I counted over 12 anti-Christian/anti-religion bumper stickers. Some of the messages were:

Science flies to the stars. Religion flies into buildings.

If you want to let faith rule your life, move to Iran.

Have you forgotten Jesus? GOOD!

etc . . .

I happened to be walking with a devoted reader of the blog, and, while I was greatly irked and agitated, he just kept walking to the car. When we got to the car, he leaned through and asked, “You don’t happen to have any of your prayer cards, do you?” Well, I did. I had two of them.

Without going into detail, I will only say that the offending car now has 14 bumper stickers instead of 12. Be cleansed, oh ignorant child of God. Be cleansed!

    AH HA HA HA!!
    I often fantasize about putting Cleansing Fire bumper stickers on cars parked in the parking lot at my old parish. Particularity a nice shinny red one.

    What a coincidence, Sr. Emily. I have had four volunteers come forward to fulfill this desire. I'm waiting till Pentecost. 😉
