mom's rant

mom's rant

yesterday i woke up after 3.5 hours of sleep due to my neighbors and got ready to go to a monther-daughter banquet with my mom, grandma and jane. it went on and on and on and on. it was more like “show off my granddaughter day” for the organizer. these little girls were singing and singing and singing and they wouldn’t stop!! ack!
anyway, it was organized by a catholic organization of the st cloud diocese and there was a bunch of “respect life” brochures, books, placemats, etc. all over.
and then during the program they prayed for the military. a LOT.
does anyone see the irony here?
well, my mom certainly had a lot to say after the program.
for instance, why do we feel so awful and up in arms when the reserve is called to serve in iraq? they VOLUNTEERED for it. and that’s what the job description is!!
second, they are trained to kill people, and being pro-life as a catholic means respecting all life, including military and iraqis. (especially when we’re sticking ourselves amidst a civil war that isn’t our own.) Killing people is killing people.
and, this is a good point she made, if we pray for the military, why aren’t we giving equal praying time for abortionists? or the dude who gives the lethal injection or throws the chair switch? according to catholic dogma, the end result is all the same.
and then we went shopping, which isn’t really shopping with jane and mom. it’s more like hurry up and get the thing you need and get out. i need liz back to go real shopping!
