Catholics are dull

My partner asked a couple of his lady friends from--well, not necessarily the parish church, but from church-related activities such as spiritual direction, servant leadership, etc.--to come to Amma's free public program on Saturday. One of them accepted the invitation, after asking what time we thought we would be home. The other just replied that she didn't want to get up early enough to meet us at the time I suggested, so she won't be joining us.

When I consider my observations of Catholics and Catholicism, both from earlier in my life and since my partner joined the church, it seems to me that it is a religion that fosters dullness, both in terms of physical sensibility and spiritual sensibility.

Last night at dinner my partner was saying that maybe we would have to have lunch at Panera instead of at the Amma program, because his friend doesn't like Indian food. I wish he would stop trying to micromanage situations that haven't even arisen yet. Maybe she hasn't liked the Indian food she has had in the past, but maybe she would like the Indian food that they will be serving at the program. Most likely they will have a Western food line anyway. They didn't get to be a multi-million-dollar spiritual empire by knowing nothing about public relations, after all.

And the beat goes on.

Om Kreem Kalyai Namaha,
