Evil Thoughts? Who Me?
Evil Thoughts? Who Me?

Earlier this week, our fellow blogger Jim Reeves, brought to our attention, of what was going on during the Synod at the Vatican, of which we know from previous experience, the dialog can get pretty heated, confusing, and rarely delivers on what makes sense and sounds good from their original intent.  So to give you a water downed update on how that dialog is going, here’s what the Associated Press is reporting today…..
