Saint of the Day: Bl. Daudi Okelo and Bl. Jildo Irwa

It happens to all of us.

Simcha Fisher - published on 06/14/13

I am not one of those conservatives who hates the environment. I don’t boycott my parish if the priest happens to mention Earth Day, and I don’t set a heap of tires on fire to make reparations for people who use cloth diapers. I even recycle, and use cloth dish towels, and do the laundry in cold water, and have a compost heap that is there on purpose.  I like the environment.

But when I am stuck in traffic with dozens and dozens of other idling cars and trucks, and the police have closed off two lanes while a tow truck maneuvers into position to tow one of these


to the nearest Mobil station because it has run out of gas, then YES, I am going to laugh.

Need you ask?  It had a COEXIST bumper sticker.  I laughed!
