Some "principles". Bart Stupak rolled over and played dead because some Federal money was thrown his way. The first few cartoon ideas that came to mind weren't fit to print, so we'll have to settle on cartoon # 4 or 5.

Not that I hadn't already given up hope on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), but their support of the healthcare overhaul - so long as it doesn't pay for abortion - is mind-numbing. As if the whole thing is just peachy, save for the abortion issue.
Time and time again, they come down in favor of socialism and, in this case, they've done so again.
They should just change their name to the United Socialist Conference of Communist Bishops, for crying out loud.

I made the unfortunate mistake of going to Mass yesterday. Well, not that going to Mass was a mistake, just that going to my parish on the 2nd Sunday of the Month was a mistake. I forgot that it was Guitar Mass Sunday.
Why our pastor allows this is beyond me. He says the Mass with reverence and class, so the music just doesn't square with it all. That type of music is for those parishes where they promote any of the many pillars of the Hippie Generation (recycling, gay rights, sex education, et al.).
My son asked, when we heard the first "twang" of the guitar, "Dad, can't we just leave and go to St. ???'s". I told him we'd just offer this up this week. But on the next 2nd Sunday, we're going somewhere else.
If anyone has tips on how to convince the pastor to put an end to this, I'd love to hear them.
