I’m feeling a bit criminal this morning, thus the ‘vice.’

=====================================

Is the "grey" becoming a bit more DARKish? Hmmmm?

Be careful!
People might mistake you for a JESUIT!! :o)
Oh no!! NOT a JESUIT!! ANYthing but a Jesuit!!

Yay, Franciscans!
We had a Franciscan priest in Saudi Arabia. Imagine, the Saudis provided us Americans with men of the cloth.

Anglicans: a vicar who had a service once a month for the SIX Anglicans on camp.

Catholics: a priest who lived on camp and held DAILY Mass, 9:00 A.M., first in his home, then in a large room in the camp clubhouse. We ended up NOT having to share a "room"/church with the Protestants.

Protestants: a reverend who held their service in that same clubhouse, ONCE A WEEK, usually right after the Catholic service. Protestants have NO obligation to attend ANY service, at any time, for any reason whatsoever--not Sundays, not Christmas, not even Easter, the holiest time of the year. So, they weren't a HUGE force in our camp Christianity.
All the Protestants were lumped together. I'm sure they loved that. (sarcasm)

We were all, I'm pretty sure, just glad to have the opportunity to have men of the cloth there. The Saudis respect Christianity, no matter what the Muslim-haters here say. This is because we Christians are all "people of the Book": the Bible, of course.

=====================================

FWIW: In Arabic JESUS is "Issa." We have a California Congressman named Darrell Issa.

From Wikipedia: Darrell Edward Issa
(/ˈaɪsə/; born November 1, 1953) is the Republican U.S. Representative for California's 49th congressional district, serving since 2001. The district, numbered as the 48th District during his first term, covers the northern coastal areas of San Diego County, including cities such as Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad and Encinitas, as well as a small portion of southern Orange County. Since January 2011, he has served as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

DARRELL EDWARD JESUS:
Republican
