SFR 355: The Madding Crowd

–We each went shopping yesterday with our respective families, and basically regret every moment of it. The crowds were outrageous, and the individual people were just rude.
–A zombie-themed Nativity scene here in Ohio has caused a fair amount of outrage, both from local Christians, and the enforcers of zoning ordinances as well.
–An atheist coalition successfully crowds out a Nativity scene display at the Capitol building in Lincoln, NE, and will install a “Reason This Season” display in its place.
–A town in Minnesota removed a Nativity scene from the town square in November due to threat of a lawsuit from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Christians around town responded by putting Nativity scenes in their yards.
–Maybe everyone goes a little crazy around Christmastime. So, we have to ask: Do Christians have a legitimate beef about some of these issues? Are secular groups making the right moves? Or are atheists just being dicks about this kind of thing?
–If you share an article or meme online that turns out to be false, or perhaps satire, do you feel obligated to correct your post, or even delete it? We do. But a large variety of people we know do not. Why?
–Bobby, in his quest to achieve “longevity,” thinks about forming a religion, stumbles upon a forum for folks interested in immortality, and basically falls deep down a rabbit hole of weirdness.
–Jason asks people to keep an eye out for the upcoming Netflix series, “Making a Murderer,” coming this Friday to the popular streaming service.

    Take this with a grain of salt, because the churches I went to were in fairly small villages/cities, but DURING Mass there’s not much to volunteer to do. You can generally volunteer to help with collection, readings, and communion, but that only requires a few people. And the homilies and readings at the churches I attended were the same all week (but there was only one priest- I’d imagine different priests would give difference homilies).
