When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Try as he might, Benny failed to bring the church back to the glory days of the Inquisition. The church needs to move into the 21st century if it is to retain any sense of relevance. They are spending millions on advertising calling ex-Catholics back to the fold. Seems many have jumped ship. I wonder why?
Trying to get spiritual nourishment from a two thousand year old book is like trying to suck milk from the breast of a woman who has been dead that long.

May be he realized he'll never get promoted to God, and decided to quit this dead end job. You know, quite the rat race, open up a small flower shop somewhere in Warsaw.

Do you have to be Catholic to be considered or do I have to convert ?
