Been a Catholic my whole life and sadly this is the norm, Many Catholics listen to the teaching of the church but do not hear them or do not believe in them. The Franciscans are a great down to earth bunch of guys, but they do not help in these matters. I have heard a lot of pro life talk come from St Francis on Sundays, then in the next breath you have this guy invited in, I don't get it.

Which statement are you referring to? In general your right, but if the alcohol tax is raised in this state. The Wal Marts of this town can absorb some of that, maybe all of it for a little while. Where Winking Market has to pass that on.

And law enforcement continues to deal with the scourge of meth as the arrests piled up throughout 2012.
