You’re right. Though I think shod technically refers to shoes or boots, not sandals.
Take it up with St. Hubbins.
Actually, the expression “sandal-clad” is a legitimate if somewhat antiquated English expression. So I think “Birkenstock clad” would qualify, too.
Be that as it may, I think we really do need another Crusade (Franciscan style). Sitting around waiting for the Muslims to take us over is not an option. We have to go to them and preach the Gospel.
But we’ve got to do it the way BXVI does it, and the way St. Francis did it: No syncretism. Islam is simply wrong, and we’re showing them the Truth, which is that God is Love, and man is made in the image of God.
