Last week I went out to dinner with my wife.  As we were deciding where to go out for dinner, I suggested an italian restaurant we had been to about a year ago.  I had a really good memory of the place.  But then my wife reminded me that neither of us were really satisfied with our food.  It really wasn’t very good italian food.  But I wanted to go there again.  I think the reason I like the place was because I was there with my wife.  She makes even eat at a restaurant a good place to be simply because she is there with me.

It appears communist authorities have compelled villagers in Vietnam to take the tabernacle, crucifix, and Marian imagery out of their church, and put up pictures of Ho Chi Minh.  The story also states:

On the following day, authorities dismantled the bell of the chapel after local Catholics refused to do it. The bell was also taken to the lay leader’s house.

A lay leader said authorities told parishioners that the building was to be used “for village activities, not for worship.”

I can only assume the Obama administration is very envious of the Vietnamese authorities.
