Is it someone that never misses a midnight mass during Christmas under the assumption that Jesus was born in the middle of the night which is completely false? Is it someone that colors their eggs for Easter in celebration of Christs resurrection? Is it someone that don's their kids baskets at halloween full of candy and dresses up their own kids as witches, ghosts, and all sorts of costumes representing the dead?

There are very good commentators on the Church and the proceedings at the Vatican, and they...
