That's it. He's off my Christmas card list. Ingrate.

And I call BS on his percentages. 24%? 47%? 29%? He tallied them up and calculated the percentages. I think he's pulling a Dunn.

The kind of cards he's railing against ARE traditional cards. Those phrases and pictures he finds so offensive have been a staple of Christmas cards since they were invented.

You know what, I wouldn't be shocked if some poor schlub did do all this tallying. I would bet, however, it was a secretary. Unless they have senior missionaries who function as clerical types, in which case I could see their time being directed toward such meaningful pursuits. Emphasis on the word directed.

Don't say "faith, hope and love" but have religiously suggestive pictures, and remember his teachings. Got it. Great message from a special witness.
