Over the last few weeks, I have noticed in a couple of Catholic Churches have hung up posters on the Census. Now, these posters are not inside of the Church itself but are usually on the announcement boards in the community room or some other location. The posters usually ask people to complete the census, since we need to get our fair share of $$.
First, I thought that there was a separation of Church and State. Why is the Federal government asking churches to put them up? Why are we cooperating?
Second, I thought that the census was about counting how many people in the US and where they lived. I did not realize that GREED was the motivating factor and that our Catholic churches were getting right in line with one of the seven deadly sins.
On a side note...I did complete the census and answered only the first question: How many are living at my address on April 1, 2010.
However, I did decide to have a little fun with them. On the question of race, I wrote: "HUMAN."
Did you complete it? All of it, or just the number of residents?
