  1. I am suprised that RNS neglects the ‘saint’ in ‘Saint Valentine’s Day’ . Perhaps making a subtle point in reference to the rise of secularism as reported in the New Yorker? We’ll go with that. Here’s hoping you reform your ways before Friday. In the spirit of the holiday ‘I Love You’ anyway!

  2. “Shark Tank” was a winner in the Christian Oscars? I clicked on the link and found “Iron Man 3” also won. Interesting…

  3. When did faith start to fade? Just take a look at today’s roundup, Christian’s lynching and dismembering a man, I’m sure Christ would greatly approve, he of the take up your sword Peter and fight like hell fame, and Muslims running for their lives in one place, committing suicide bombings in the name of Allah in another,. Preachers here in America preaching a prosperity gospel while at the same time fighting against programs that help the poor. Right Christian of them don’t you think? After all, Christ did say I’ve got mine screw you, didn’t he? Yeah, I totally now agree with Marx-religion is just the drug of the people. Nothing more, nothing less!!


      Yes. Since you asked.
