Consider this . . .

Catholicism dominates South Louisiana. Our state is divided into Parishes, not counties. The ones that have Catholic names: St. Mary, Assumption ( as in the Assumption of Mary ), Ascension ( as in the Ascension of Jesus ), St Landry, St Bernard, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Martin, and St. Tammany.

Think about how many government buildings, cars, documents have these names plastered all over them. Imagine how silly it would sound if the ACLU sued the St. John The Baptist Parish School Board for having religious references in their schools.

So much for Separation of Church and State.

Not to worry. The ACLU never, ever gets itself involved in frivolous, pointless lawsuits.

LOL. Very funny. Now what would they do with someone whose last name is Parrish?

I'm not sure I agree with Mark about the frivolous law suits.

Love your art work. :)

Thanks, Jan.

There's a prominent lawyer around here with the last name St. Martin. I guess you and he can't work for the government.

And don't worry, Mark was just being facetious (in the good way).
