Something I Almost Never Do (Please Read)

This is probably the first time that I've added a post AFTER publishing my "Sunday Snippets" post for the week.
However, I feel that this is important... and thank God I can moderate "Guest" reviews before they are published. Here is what somebody wrote about this story: (one word changed)
[BLEEP] YOU THIS IS SO RACIST AND HOMOPHOBIBIB [sic]
 
Huh???? What's racist and/or homophobic about this story?

And yes, that review upset me.  Again, thank God it was a "Guest" review, so I could delete it before it was published.

Sunday Snippets-- A Catholic Carnival


Well, here it is time once more for Sunday Snippets  ! Thanks to RAnn for hosting!  I've discovered some wonderful blogs here.  How about sharing yours? 
I have a special request this week: Please pray for the repose of the soul of RAnn's father,
and the consolation of his loved ones.
