Washington (CNN) – “You’ve got something on your forehead.”
Every year on Ash Wednesday it’s how the awkward conversation begins. A well meaning co-worker points out a black smudge on someone’s forehead, not knowing it’s supposed to be there.
I'm more interested in their lack of flag pins (sarcasm).
Who cares? Let them carry a staff and be followed by 10 virgin boys, I still won't vote for them.
Since the Vice President sports his ash n his forehead every Ash Wednesday, why shouldn't the candidates? Just how Catholic are thou? Will they be bearing palms on Palm Sunday?
what will santorn do about liberal christians that want conterception, female bishops etc?
Santorum will wear ashes, for sure. Gingrich is a Catholic, count him in. I do not know if Mormons have the tradition, not to my knowledge. If Ron Paul is the southern baptist that I think he is, then he shouldn't wear ashes.
Will They, or Won't they wear ashes ?
Answer : Depends on IF they're Proud of being a Catholic, or not. IF they don't wear ashes on their forehead on ash wednesday – then that Just means that they opted to "Not" to attend Church Services on ash wednesday. But that doesn't mean they aren't Catholic – it Just means whether you've "participated" in the ash wednesday thing, or not. Not Every Catholic Attends Church Services on Ash Wednesday, y'know. I remember when I worked at a Factory, and working overtime, plus shiftwork on ash wednesday, I didn't have "time" to go to get ashes. It's merely a symbolic thing, is all.
poor miss santorum. i really do feel sorry for her : (
I have no problem with them wearing ashes. As a matter of fact, if they are practicing Catholics, they should. that said- keep the church in your heart and out of politcs. Our country is based on civil law- not cannon law.
Depends on what Mass they go to , morning or evening.
Will these two wear their ash crosses today? I'm going with: Hell yes! Like a big ole' Christian/Catholic flag on their foreheads. Proclaiming a faith they have consistently strayed from in their words and actions.
Now that "Satan" is "attacking America", these politicians better stop frontin' and start wearing their colors, yo. For real, dog.
Like WHY on earth is this a topic of conversation? No one really cares nor should they.
Why do they talk about the word and do not live by the word
I certainly don't go to the polls to elect a theologian; a candidate's religion is irrelevant to me.....the separation between church and state should be non-negotiable...why are all these people trying to blur the lines or forget that they even exist?
Who cares? If they were really godly, they wouldn't be constantly lying to us about their "colleagues"!
