I have to say I was not overly impressed with the post you are replying to as the tone of it was most unpleasant indeed and the atittudes within that post are ones I think paint a poor picture of Catholicism.

The removal of these disgusting biscuits from the world would be a blessing as they taste like dried polysterene mixed with hardened wallpaper paste.

Did the Christians in this video do well?

Do you believe you are more sickened than I am?

There are people on this Gay thread that advocate death for Gays, and I'm not one of them.

Do you believe either attitude is justifiable? We are called upon as Catholics to follow the best examples and not the worst.

Of course not. That's the point.

Good thing I get the off-brand.

Also, I just noticed, their choice of text-highlight color for the website is pink.

You know, I've pointed out here before that you have a very nasty habit of insinuating that I've written something that I have not. The moderator removed the last example of you doing that. And it appears that you just can't help yourself, and you want to do it again. I have nothing to disown in a previous post.

This reminds me of the movie, "A Beautiful Mind". The poor guy just had to deal with the fact that he sees and hears things that are not really there. Will you ever get to that point?

I won't play this game with you gospodin. In fact the ignore button is an useful tool and designed for essentially pointless interaction like this.

Oreos look rather sad and pathetic against those...
Great, can you guess the two things that will leave me restless until I can get my hands on them?

17 Big Companies That Are Intensely Religious
Kim Bhasin and Melanie Hicken | Jan. 19, 2012, 11:29 AM | 649,760 | 104

Many big brands are intensely religious, even though consumers may not realize it. Most of the time, it comes from a devout founder passing his or her values on down the line.

Some companies put their religion right out in the open, and are proud of their identities. Chick-fil-A is infamous for closing on Sundays, and In-N-Out puts Bible verses on its packaging. Interstate Batteries' mission statement states up front that it exists "to glorify God" while selling its products.

Still, it's risky for brands to affiliate themselves with a religion directly. Since it's just a polarizing subject, it often opens companies up to controversy.

There are quite a few websites and videos out there based around the same theme, namely, "Republican Women vs. Democratic Women". And while I would hate to try to second guess the mod and guess wrong, I suspect that providing links to them might be describable, by some, more so as "candid" or "honest" than "charitable". I just figured people would understand my comment, having already gotten the memo that went around several times for the past few years regarding the matter.
