He sounds kinda nutty. But it could be he was having a bad day and trying to make a point. I'm trying to figure out what must have set him off, or if he went after all of his contacts like that. :ready-to-eat:
Personally speaking, I would buy religious goods from whoever is buying them. And um, I buy rosaries, crucifixes, candles - Catholic stuff - from a local store over here. A Protestant one - and I know the clerks are Presbyterian, because most people around town are Presbyterian.
I buy online from traditional Catholic stores too, but I still shop and support local people.
The way I look at it... it is a good thing that they are doing. It might be all about money for them, but they are within their rights to only sell Protestant goods in their stores. By shopping at their stores and talking about the stuff I'm buying with the clerks or fellow shoppers, who knows? There could be a chance I might help them find the right path. Or at least, I will show them that traditional Catholics (like moi) are not bigots.
These people at the locals stores are good people. They are more conservative and God-fearing than novus ordos, and they understand charity (love of God, love of neighbor) more than most traditional Catholics. <- They are just confuzzled and misled when it comes to what they believe.
And of course, uhm, they are my neighbors. I want them to do well and stay in the area. There is a huge difference between living near practicing Presbyterians (married couples with 5 or 6 kids) and living near embittered atheists. :scared2:
