Mystery photo. Where am (was) I?
I really, really do not want to make light of the actual human events involved here, but this story is surreal (and –I would speculate–the basis of the Easter Bunny Hates You video): In what would seem to be nothing more than a holiday prank, a newspaper in Florida reports that the Easter Bunny was […]
Hey, Tim Jones, here. 1968 was the year that I “got saved” in the Baptist church and was baptized. I was seven, and at the time I’m certain that I thought everyone was a Baptist. Even if I had been a Catholic at the time, though, I would have been too young to take note […]

Just as to deconstruct non-Catholic misunderstandings on justification, the papacy, the canon of scripture, and practically anything else […]
Terry Mattingly has the story. The Vatican is known its complex rituals, rich in ancient symbols and mysterious details.
