  •  Speaks to me, too... I slept in... (7+ / 0-)

    as well this morning (our 13th snow day!).

    I am Catholic, and I am a big believer in the tested conscience... we do what is the right thing to do, given the circumstances in front of us.  Real life does not fit nice and neatly into dogma.

    Jesus knew this well...witness how he interacted with the "keepers of the faith" in his day. He called them on it, publicly and clearly.

    Compassion...common sense...just good ways to approach everything in this life.

    Our country can survive war, disease, and poverty... what it cannot do without is justice.
