Did you know...


So, did you know?
.
That the Amish people dress very old fashioned, but they are normal; they know about modern things and have studied and are smart and stuff. They do not practice polygamy, but marry and have children just like regular people do. They are very nice. Anabaptist people are similar to them and they are normal too. They are Christians, but they do not have a liturgy or sacraments, save for baptism I believe. They are all very nice.
.
Jewish people have no sacraments at all, and only really orthodox Jews dress differently - I think it's the Hassidic group. Shawls, hats, black suits - wigs for the women. I don't know any, but I think they are nice.
.
Many Islamic people dress differently too - the women sometimes look like nuns. The Islamic religion does not have sacraments either. In fact Jews and Muslims are not Catholic, nor are they even Christian - but many of them are real nice.
.
Mormons are real different too. Some people do not think they are really Christian either. Some people say they have no sacraments whatsoever. But they do baptize people, often dead people by proxy, but that doesn't count. Many of these people are very nice - almost too nice - like Donnie and Marie - yeah, they are almost too nice.
.
Then there is Tom Cruise and Scientology. Scientology has no liturgy or sacraments either. Personally, I do not think it is a religion at all, but the people are very nice. I like Tom and Katy Cruise a lot - they are very nice. Katy is very pretty and Tom has a wonderful smile and seems to be as nice as can be.
.
I will pray for all the people I mentioned who are not Catholics, especially for Tom and Katie that they return to the Catholic Church. (Did you even know they were Catholics?)
.
Baptism is very important - real Christian baptism, that is. Some Catholics are not really baptized you know, but the priests who did the fake baptisms were real nice. (No one talks about this any longer.)
.
Oh - and Oriental religions - they are just pagan - but the people seem real nice. I'm not interested though. (Most religious people do seem real nice though, don't you think? I wonder if it is genuine?)
.
The End.

    If I'm not mistaken, Tom had a stint in the seminary. What in the world happened to him?!?! Truth be told, he also had a stint in a convent. One of his movies was filmed in a convent where real nuns live. Really. I know, because one of my sisters is one of those nuns.

    I've always guessed that he had some issues, related to what you are currently trying to discuss on your other blog. He seems to try a little too hard to play a role, don't you think?

  2. Terry:
    Thanks for the informative public service announcement :)

    As far as I know, both Tom and Katie are still Catholic since they say you can be a Scientologist AND a Catholic simultaneously. And, Tom is a thetan or whatever Scientology has as their highest level. Not just your average Joe. And I understand he's very nice, especially back in Risky Business ;}

  3. Katie Holmes is not only a Catholic, but a Catholic from Toledo. They actually were thinking of buying a house here, for a while.
    I've always thought Tom Cruise should be the poster boy for ignoring a vocation to the priesthood. You can gain the world, but something's missing.

  4. Mr. Smith has already mentioned about Mr. Cruise. Another tidbit: The insane asylum in Rain Man is a convent for the Congregation of Divine Providence in Kentucky. Does this picture look familiar?

  6. Michael, I think Tom may have some issues, but he is just so darn nice - who really cares?

    Monica, I did not know he was a Theban, whatever that is - you really know a lot about the celebrities lady.

    Brother, if what you mean by "Does this picture look familiar" is meant to suggest I know anything about insane asylums - no it doesn't. LOL!

    Uncle Jim - gosh darn! I think you are real nice too. Cathy? Not so much.

    Jeron sent me a private email wondering if I was being sarcastic in this post or indicating I think all non-Catholics may be lost. I laughed so hard, because I was just doing a dumb post with no meaning at all. I was just trying to be nice. LOL!

  7. Actually, every one of these very nice people who have been validly baptized is Catholic - just imperfectly tethered to the Mother Ship.

    Ter - you're nice, too (you just don't like when people figure that out:)

    Everyone is so darn nice here. The bit about the insane asylum is really funny, trust me. They have a really nice labyrinth there.

    LOL! I really know very little about celebrities, it's my husband, HONESTLY, who tells me these things since he listens to the radio on the way to work, at work, and on the way home. That's my story anyway. Guess he listens to KQ and they have an entertainment guy that dishes all the celeb gossip.

    He listens to KQ! I haven't listened since I quit work - I love KQ - before blogging I wrote them letters and called in. I miss them.
