    Oh, the irony and tongue in cheek motivation by the ads from the funeral business had me smiling! The story about the fellow in the boat digging a hole in the floor of his cabin teaches logic, but it will not ever change minds, as the intrenched ego supports the decision based on emotional reasoning to the bitter end. If logic should have made a difference, it would have, but folks just shift to another, different justification, and even if all were debunked, they would still dig in their heels. About rich churches, definitely, churches should pay their fair share of taxes, then the government could use that to fix bridges, hiring many. to subside housing, healthcare, meals on wheels, school breakfast programs, food stamps, Employment insurance, and many poor would suddenly be off the streets, Less “charity cases” would be needing to be helped. People would have more dignity because they could get themselves going again and not be seen as a “charity case” .Then do-gooders would need to re-think their positions. Former President Carter got it right, and the entire world perceives the USA as a warlike nation because it is involved in so many conflicts around the world. Great non-rant day.

    I don’t think I heard the Jimmy Carter statement at the time. But the thing is, permanent war – more correctly, permanent victimhood – is a great way to “rally ’round the flag, boys.” There’s more to be said, but I’m not gonna.
    I have a friend who is a good churchgoing person, who has quit going to church, because he looks around and thinks about how many people in church probably hate him for a number of reasons. I hate that.
    Idaho has gotten $1.9 million in federal funds for funerals. It’s not hospitals that are getting rich from COVID.
