#1 good decision. The lightning and brimstone might be hard to explain

#2 Yah, I hear proposals to have blessings by Catholic priests, rabbis, and Buddhist monks were all rejected by the venue's insurance company.

#3 Cardinal Dolan would have been as out of place as a nun at a Bar Mitzvah. The cult of Obama recognizes no deity save the Champ.

#4 My guess would be that the Dems will feature a Disgruntled Nun at the convention.

#5 Which Imam will provide the invocation?

#6 I believe the dims will have Fluke speak, who if I understand right is an All.

#7 Let the Flukenator speak. Let multi-coloured inflated condums cascade from the ceiling. It's all good!

#8 That's OK. Liz Warren will be there. She can probably offer up some words on behalf of Mother Gaia. Maybe do a rain dance to keep the hurricanes away...

#9 "Liz Warren will be there"
I'm hoping the Cherokees will too.
I've ordered more popcorn.... :-D

#10 Liz Warren speaking? That really would be the long pole in the tent.

#11 Cardinal Dolan speaking at the Democratic convention? That would be a hoot!
Almost as much fun as when Mother Teresa spoke at the national prayer breakfast, and blasted the US on its position on abortion. Right in front of the Clintons, who couldn't walk out, and couldn't say anything, because Mother Teresa was the guest of honor. Here's the link if you're interested.
Of course, Cardinal Dolan has more sense than to make a statement as strong as Mother Teresa's. After all, Catholic priests, bishops and especially cardinals have lost their First Amendment rights to speak out strongly on abortion.

#12 He'd HAVE to bow, that's against his principal, he'd Rather bow, but to Have to, No.

#13 The circus comes to town in Charlotte. I'm wondering whether a muslim, atheist or wiccan will open the thing up. Pass the popcorn--lots of butter and salt.

#14 My friends who live in Charlotte are leaving for that week, John. Seems like a perfect week for a vacation.
My firm also has an office in Charlotte, and we're getting a running commentary of what's happening/expected to happen through the in-house bulletin board. They're recommending that anyone who can work from home, do so. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our business, a lot of people can't. I wish them good luck.
Glad I won't be in Charlotte until November!

#15 Well golly, even the Titanic had a Catholic chaplain to take confession on the way down.
