    He could always switch denominations and start going to St. Andrews. Of course, that would entail moving to Scotland.

    At least in Catholic masses, many people go to communion, then walk back to their seats, keep going out the door.

    Fred, it sounds liike that’s par for this course. Better get used to the idea of chasing an impossible goal while praying for a better score next week; and give up Sunday golf.

    Thanks for dredging up some memories.
    I played church organ for several years in grade and high school (1960s), and from my vantage in the choir loft I saw many players in the human comedy:
    In addition to the “communion commuters” were those who didn’t leave early but arrived fashionably late and stayed in the vestibule for quick getaways at the end. They also helped hold up the church walls by leaning against them. Mostly cool young guys, at that time with “D.T.” haircuts.
    People who had their “reserved” spots in a particular pew and glared in an un-Christian way at others who got there first, unaware of the staked claim.
    Early birds who just had to sit at the aisle end of empty pews, and everybody coming later had to squeeze around them.
    Kids tickling each other with palm leaves on Palm Sunday.
    Kids bored to tears. Frustrated parental glares at a misbehaving kid, shaking warning fingers, and as a last resort yanking them by his hand to the back of church. (When I was really young, my mother said the priest would come down and spank me if I misbehaved. Dumb kid, I believed her.)
    Nodders and sleepers.
    Teen-age girls who made their Sunday-best entrances (in nylons! in makeup!), and all the teen-age boys looked over at the same time, a wave movement of Brylcreemed heads.
    People who regularly attended “Express” Masses given by certain priests who made the services short and sweet, with minimal sermons. They were frustrated when another priest who was slower filled in.
    And then there were the “choir loft people” who came up by my area, and who must have enjoyed people watching as much as I. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do my homework when they were there.

    But I’m sure that he does a huge amount of praying out on the golf course!

    I enjoyed reading that. I’m sure the exact thing goes on in all the churches in all the lands.

    Organized religion is a useless waste of time, ridiculous waste of money, & a horrendous waste of brain cells!!!

    Your comments are always positive and pleasant. I appreciate them and I’m sure everybody who reads them does, too.
