Don't Believe Everything you Think

That from a bumper sticker I saw yesterday. It's particularly good advice if you speak only English and learned to think in the last, say, century. Because if you do, and you did, chances are you think like a protestant.

How's this;
tailor made for American Catholics:

Don't think about anything you supposedly believe.

If I think like a protestant, can I burn myself at the stake?

Carriere you confuse me. What on earth are you talking about? Are you tight again?

J D Carriere said...

Tight again? What, now, or when I typed this post? Either way. No. Check with me in an hour.

See, if you learned recently to think and had nothing to read but English, you have probably had your thought patterns pretty sorely messed up and not even noticed.

To tip you off that this may have happened, listen to hear if you say things like "he's entitled to his opinion" or "everything's relative" and don't snicker after.

For the cleansing of American heresies, I reccomend buying "The Popes Against Modern Errors" from TAN Books.

I was wondering about how much we need to campaign for the rights of men to knit in public. it appears that men of all shapes and sizes are free to dress as women,speak like women, behave like loons, whatever. but if a man knits in public he faces ridicule from all sections of society. its just not right. think about it - when did you last see a man knitting on the train?
