Man, I have so many LiveJournaly things to say, and yet THIS ridiculous shit is the shit that prompts me to post:

Church Nixes Good Friday Fenway Hot Dogs

Here's the quote that makes me mad: "I would hope it was just an oversight when they were doing the schedule," Rev. Christopher J. Coyne, a spokesman for the archdiocese told the Boston Herald. "I think it's very insensitive to the huge number of people who are Christians and fans."

Also, in 1995 and 2000, Cardinal Bernard F. Law, then the head of the archdiocese, allowed local Catholics to eat meat when St. Patrick's Day fell on a Friday during Lent.

Hey assholes, the whole point of giving up something is that you're GIVING UP SOMETHING. Hel-LO! "Insensitive"? Are you serious? That they're daring to have a BASEBALL GAME on Good Friday? You have got to be kidding me. It's not even, like, free hot dog day or anything! I mean okay, it's Opening Day, but so what? Get a pretzel! Have some peanuts! What a bunch of whiners. The whole point of sacrifice is that it's a PAIN IN THE ASS. That's why I don't follow a religion, I'm too lazy and have no will power. But at least I have come to terms with that, and don't look for excuses.
