Is there no vice too sordid for the Catholics?

posted Sun, 09 Sep 2007

Contrast the Lutheran lunch this morning to the parish festival at St Gregory the Great this afternoon.

The Packers

Lutherans: Game in Sunday school classroom to get people to stay past noon
Catholics: Game in Sunday school classroom to get people to come before 3:30

Food

Lutherans: Hotdish and brats
Catholics: Candy apples, corn dogs, ice cream, fried mozzarella sticks, fried cheese curds, and brats

Drinks

Lutherans: Soda and coffee
Catholics: Beer on tap

Music

Lutherans: Insipid praise music (in their defense, they usually have really good music at SH’s church)
Catholics: Three bands on three stages (although most music in church stinks)

Games

Lutherans: Kickball
Catholics: Liquor raffle, pokerino, bingo and seven other kinds of gambling

General ambiance:

Lutherans: Khakis and polos, no smoking
Catholics: Black leather pants and Harley t-shirts, long ponytails (on the men) and mullets (both men and women), Packer shirts in abundance and (this is the worst part, so brace yourself) smoking
