    I was basing it off your response in post #7, where you seemed to say be saying that you're okay with Catholic schools doing this stuff because a portion of their enrollment is not Catholic. Did you not say that?

    I said myself I don't have a problem with it. Your response just confused me that's all.

    Haha I may have confused myself as well. All of those post were during my second class, I was taking note, Facebook surfing and trying to post on BGP all at the same time(my poor notes).

But, His death and resurrection is the centerpiece and foundation of salvation. There's no comparison to be made in terms of importance between the two holidays.
    This is so true. Anybody can be born; there's nothing intrinsically unique about Christ's birth, other than the circumstances of his conception. But only one (so far) has done what Christ did on the first Easter.

    As for the baseball game issue, I believe they should not be played on that day. We can skip days of education to honor the life of a mortal leader of our country. Why can't we at least show this small measure of respect for the most important figure in the lives of so many people around the world?
