View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

While sorting through our pile of the local daily newspaper to decide what to throw in the recycling box, I noticed the number of columns printed each week.

Curious, I took a quick tour through a week’s worth of issues.

Here’s a partial list of the topics covered by the columns I found:

Romantic relationships, office relationships, relationships in general, parenting, pets, politics (generally three per issue on the editorial page), gay and lesbian issues, cars, computers, video games, bridge, several devoted to sports in general, outdoors, the weather, celebrity news and gossip, medical issues and advice, dieting, fitness, recipes (several), beer, household hints, gardening, staff member addressing local community issues and people, and horoscopes.

But there were none about religion.
