Truly, He is risen!
Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
—John Paul II
Saint Gabriel Possenti is the informal patron of marksmen. I wonder what he would think of the priest who is referring to Nerf toys as “gateway guns.” Fr. Pfleger is upset that K-Mart is selling Easter baskets with the Nerf guns in them.
Ed Morrissey comments:
Seriously? The candy in the Easter baskets are more dangerous than the Nerf guns and water pistols. Pfleger explains that as a Christian, he’s offended by the inclusion of violent toys in this “celebration of life,” but as a Catholic priest, shouldn’t he be more offended by Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, and the commercialization of the holiest day on the Christian calendar? Isn’t that his day job?
