God Bless Holidays
As I sat at home today enjoying Pfingston (Whitsun for you Brits, the day when the Holy Spirit came to the Apostles), I rethought about my firm pro- stance on the separation of church and state. While I still believe the govt shouldn't force anyone to worship or not worship, religious holidays are a good thing. I know that my opinion of Catholicism is much higher today than it was on Friday. The US's only religious holiday (now Consumerian, not Christian) is Christmas. Couldn't we share tolerance by adding the Jewish High Holy Days and the start of Ramadan to the mix? World peace through vacation -- you heard it here first.
