7 Quick Takes Friday

A wonderful video on why women a veil at Mass. The Giver is a new movie about the perfect utopia we are striving to reach. Native Americans speak-out about the Washington NFL team’s use of the “Redskins” name. How do we work with radical Islam to achieve peace and harmony – a realistic analysis. A black Marine offers his own challenge. Growing racism in America, but it’s not what the media would have us believe. Finally, something odd, very odd.

From the Convert Journal “just odd” desk: Two 30 year-old guys record one’s mom and aunt engaging in idle chit-chat. Then they lip-sync to it.

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!


  1. Ok, that last one really cracked me up! HAHAHA I needed the laugh!

    I also enjoyed that veiling video when I saw it last week. I go back and forth about posting it to my quick takes or a post because I really am not a fan of some of their other videos. But that one was LOVELY. Beautifully done.
