Nashville, We Are a Weird Bunch

On the one hand, you have the folks spending all their money and effort on pushing that English-only crap (I have decided that their position can be boiled down to “We’re totally not racist, we just don’t like the foreign people we live with or who visit here.”).

On the other hand, last night the congregation of Our Lady of Guadalupe found out that their debt has been paid off and that they are a self-sustaining, independent congregation in their diocese.

Both things make me weepy if I think about them for too long, but the second makes me all Christmasy inside.  I will never understand how folks can feel anything but enriched by the diversity of our community.
