If one more coach says you have to score more points than the other team to win I will quit following football.

Why does the bishop feel compelled to butt into this innocent and laudable fund raiser. Certainly, the people at St. Charles do not need him to tell them that the ice bucket splash is not immoral. Adults are perfectly capable of making their own sound moral judgments. Catholic bishops need to focus on their own immorality before turning their judgments on others.

"...they use to determine who to hire."
The subject of an infinitive is in the accusative case. Therefore, "Whom" to hire.

Great, now if we just had a decent road that runs through the roundabout. The entire Matthews Road is abominable. Why can't this road be resurfaced before winter. And while they are at it, how about Indianola Road? It's a real ball-joint buster.

Now we are just like Paris. All we need is Le L'ouvre. Oh wait, we have Le Butler.

How utterly small of the diocese of Cincinnati! Bishops and archbishops have too much time on their hands. They need to spend more time reflecting on their own sins and leadership failings; that would take up a lot of their time leaving Catholics free to make their own moral decisions.

"The students all knew about this, so hopefully they had time to decide not to use [drugs], so they can participate in their fall sports,” said Kimberly Poma..." - I think Ms. Poma might want to re-word her comment. She seems to be saying, hey we gave them ample time to get clean so that they could pass the test and play football. That's all we're interested in.

Rev. Bonnot may be right about the immorality of football, but prohibiting the game? You might as well ask the wind to stop blowing or the snow to cease falling. Football has replaced that nice, pastoral game baseball as the national pastime and there is no turning back. Incidentally, Father, have you watched ultimate boxing on TV? Talk about immoral "sports."

Well put. I hope the church leaders are listening. Yes, of course bishops, archbishops and cardinals believe they are royal princes. Why else would they flounce around in watered silk capes, lace surplices and silly hats and be addressed as "Your Excellency, Your Grace and Your Eminence. Card. Dolan may be the poster boy for the ultimate in royal extravagance but many others aren't far behind. (I don't know where Bishop Murry lives so I can't say whether he lives in luxury. I hope he doesn't). Christ would be appalled if he came back and saw how the descendants of his hand-picked twelve have turned into a group of one percenters. Francis will have to do more than live simply in order to pry these princes from their pompous perches. He will need to come down hard on the offenders. I don't know if he's up to the challenge.
