About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

My wife kicks some spine into me.

Our kids are back at school, starting today. When they got home I immediately came upon notes in all three backpacks detailing an "Ice Bucket Challenge" their school wants 100% participation in. Since theres some controversy about this ( ) I wanted to get the wife's input before deciding.

Oh. Boy.

A bit of background here. My better half is an RN who came upon her pro life views honestly, i.e. through her training she realized what abortion and everything associated with it entails, thus she's adamantly pro life.

So when I posed the "Whaddaya think?" question, her eyes starting glowing, teeth flashed, hands clenched. Not pretty.

Well, I've got my answer. So tonight I'll be typing up three responses for our kids to take to school. We'll decline to participate due to our religious beliefs and anyone who doesn't like it can take a flying leap at a rolling doughnut. These fools are going to fall short of their participation goal.

But I have to admit, it was her response that stiffened my resolve. It's just a bit embarrassing to admit but there ya go. The wife kept me on the straight and narrow.

What the hell, the school administration probably thinks I'm nuts already. Everyday while waiting to pick my kids up I routinely pray the rosary out in the foyer to the main entrance. It keeps me focused on something other than the gratuitous T&A floor show from some of the "moms". At times it's actually driven some folks away.

But that is another story.

It good for a husband to listen to his wife. You've made the right decision.

How about schools stick to teaching instead of jumping on the latest silly fad of a fund raiser for an outfit that uses fetal stem cells for research?

And...............sorry you have to start the school year by being the "bad" guy.

Admit it, though - it's kind of fun, isn't it?
