While trying to express my amused befuddlement over the concept of Catholic saints, I said some stuff that in retrospect sounds rather snarky to my ear. Sigh. My better judgment consistently trails my mouth (or my fingers in this case) by about 48 hours.
Nobody complained to me about it or anything. It just struck me late last night as I tried to put on my sympathy hat and imagine how I would read what I had written if I felt the way that some Catholics appear to feel about their saints, that it might sound disrespectful and insulting.
I’m truly sorry about that, and I’ve amended the post accordingly.
