Storm? Maybe a slight shower.

Well, I had some unexpected business this weekend and didn't quite get the chance to unleash the blog storm that I had hoped.

Sigh.

But I shouldn't complain. A busy life is a good life.

But before I wrap up the weekend, here's at least one of the clips that I had hoped to meditate upon this weekend:

Headline: "Pope urges Austrians to return to Catholicism."

Is he hoping for the hopeless? Is Christianity -- not just Catholic Christianity but all Christianity, a spent wave? Is that a good thing or a bad thing? What will take its place? Will that be good or bad?

It's an interesting question. The only religion that is adding people, (by the millions) including people in this country, is Islam. In terms of numbers, Christianity is on it's way out.

i'm not sure whether or not christianity is a spent wave, but i'm pretty sure that the pope "urging" some people to believe more than they currently do is not going to make them do so.
