  • I don't know if I am getting old, but why is this here? People may think Troy has something to do with it with his picture right next to it, and while it may seem like a small thing some people take their religion very seriously. I recently went to a high school football game at a Catholic school and during this time of year people dress up for Halloween, so a few morons who happen to live in my town dressed up like the Pope and another one dressed in a way that many would associate as the likeness of Jesus. Now I am not a Catholic but I felt bad for the Catholics that were there because they obviously feel very strongly about the Pope and Jesus and I'm sure they did not appreciate the act of stupidity. But to their credit they acted like they didn't even see it because saying anything about it, it might be perceived that they acted with poor taste. You are probably wondering what this has to do with the article; and the problem is, if you knew, you wouldn't have written it in the first place.
