Thank you very much for sharing that, Erick. I love learning new stuff. They already know that I'm Catholic, and I don't think they hold it against me. I'm not worried about them trying throw us out or anything; I just want them to stop bothering their pastor so much about things that don't even interest them. Since I made the changes, everything's been honky-dory.
