The religion was created for caffiene addicts and coffee aficionados everywhere. As of now, the religion of Coffeeism is a widely recocnized religion in over 7,000 countries and 12 planets, with 97.3% of the universe's population registered as a member of this cultchurch.

The religion was not kindly accepted by the public at its time of introduction, and its size remained the same up until the mid-900s. One of the relatives of Starbuck himself, Lief Starbuck, had rediscovered his great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather's original scripture writings for the Bible of Caffeinated Beverages. Lief studied these writings for several months, and decided to revive the religion. He traveled the world telling people of this great religion. He had gained hundreds of followers, who had also gathered a handful of followers. This led Lief to establish the first church of Latte-Day Saints, which he simply called Starbucks.

It's one week until Christmas!!!! Can you believe it????We have been decking the halls and jingling the bells! Friday I spent my morning at AR children's hospital helping with the annual toy drive. I have several friends with children who are in the hospital right now so I know how much it must mean to not have to worry about shopping and still be able to give your kids a Christmas. Saturday morning we went to our town's Christmas parade. I hate to admit that I have never been. I love all things in my town but for some reason we have avoided the parade up until now. Harper got to ride on the float for her school. It was Peanuts themed and SO cute!!!! How great are those masks? It was a beautiful day! It was cold and windy but sunny. It had been NASTY the two days before so I was thankful for a nice day! We staked out our spots and waited for the parade. Will Holden's buddy Caroline came by and gave him candy! We had a great time watching the parade! We will for sure have to go again next year! That afternoon we went to Fayetteville so we could have a night of Christmas fun! We ate at U S Pizza. It's a favorite! The Fayetteville square is beautiful at Christmas. It was SUPER crowded but we enjoyed walking around. Nothing says Christmas like a big lit up Razorback! :- )I mean - JOY to the world! Then we headed to Steward Family Lights. If you are in NWA - you don't want to miss this! It's a family owned display and it's INSANE. You walk through it. There were SO many people I felt like we were at Disney during the busiest week of the year. If you are local - go on a week night. I love spending time with my family during Christmas! So thankful for this family of mine! Sunday morning the girls and I were at church bright and early to serve coffee and treats for "Latte Moon". (How clever is that?) We took donations to raise money for the Lottie Moon Offering. This goes to raise money for Missions. The girls LOVED working at it! We went to our usual Mexican place for lunch and two of our best friends showed up so we ended up letting the kids eat together and we ate together. Will Holden and his Ladies! Sunday afternoon we set up the Lord's Supper. Our church only does this twice a year and we are in charge of setting up and cleaning. The girls LOVE helping with this too. We have four days left of school and we can't wait for our break!
• We write this on Shrove Tuesday, with Ash Wednesday and Lent arriving tomorrow, and you will be reading this, those of you in liturgical churches, a few weeks into Lent. We hope you’re advancing in holiness. William F. Buckley is said to have answered someone who asked if he liked writing, “I like having written.” That is our feeling about Lent. • A recent cover of The Utne Reader , a popular “alternative” magazine that’s a kind of Reader’s Digest for the lifestyle left, featured an article entitled “The New Extremists: Understanding and Combating Fanaticism.” The cover illustration included people like Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, then-Libyan tyrant Muammar Gaddafi, and the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il, all looking extreme and fanatical. By far the biggest figure in the drawing, shown holding a flaming torch with a smug, crazed look on his face, was Benedict XVI. As it turned out, the article didn’t mention Benedict at all. In fact, we think he would have agreed with much of its criticism of the kind of fanaticism that cannot hear other people and will not reason with them, and often tries to beat them into submission by force. But that’s not what the cover told you. That drawing told you he’s a dangerous nutcase. And that drawing’s message, let us be blunt, is deeply stupid. There are disagreements in which both sides have a plausible case, but there is no plausible case to be made that Benedict, a man of genteel and old-fashioned liberality, is a fanatic and extremist. • We don’t mean to sound like a junkyard dog defending his supper dish, but they’re smearing someone who’s like a father to us. A beloved father. A reverend father. • Benedict thinks through and with the Church, and that’s the problem. But fair is fair, and just because Benedict starts with the Church doesn’t make him any more fanatical than the atheist who starts with atheism and the atheist intellectual tradition. A Christian or an atheist can be a fanatic, or not, because fanaticism is a quality of the way people hold their beliefs, not of the beliefs themselves. Indeed, given what Christianity teaches about charity, human sinfulness, and God’s grace, being a Christian may make Benedict or any other Christian far less likely to be fanatical than the atheist. As the Catholic priest Ronald Knox once admitted, he didn’t know why he saw the truth of Christianity and many perfectly nice people he knew didn’t see it at all. He certainly wasn’t better than they were. He could only thank God that he saw it, as unworthy as he was, and pray for those who didn’t. The atheist has no such restraints. • The more things change, etc. In his drive to re-paganize the Roman Empire in the middle of the fourth century, the Emperor Julian (a.k.a. “The Apostate”) tried to weaken the Christian opposition by dividing it and setting one faction against another, observes our friend Mike Aquilina. “He offered prominent Catholics high positions, so that he could neutralize them while claiming their support. Meanwhile, he made the requirements for schoolteachers so stringently pagan that no Christian could fulfill them. Said Julian: ‘If they want to learn literature, they have Luke and Mark: Let them go back to their churches and expound on them.’” He also, Mike notes, restored heretical bishops who had been deposed, so that major cities would have two competing bishops. According to his biographer Adrian Murdoch, Julian “marginalized Christianity to the point where it could potentially have vanished within a generation or two, and without the need for physical coercion.” In other words, Julian used the normal tools of political power to try to drive Christians into a cultural ghetto and thereby eliminate Christianity as a cultural force. • Hanging on the wall of an office here is a flyer, made up in the very earliest days of Evangelicals and Catholics Together, for Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Movie , a production distributed by Miramaximaculpa and rated PG-65. The movie stars Anthony Hopkins as Richard John Neuhaus, Pat Boone as Charles Colson, Jeremy Irons as George Weigel, and Sir Alec Guinness as Avery Dulles, S.J. Others appearing in the movie include Telly Savalas as Peter Berger, Fred Thompson as Richard Land, and Wally Cox as J. I. Packer. With small parts are Lily Tomlin as our office manager Davida Goldman and Tom Hanks (this was certainly surprise casting) as then-editor James Nuechterlein. This, we realize, will be much funnier to those of you who know these people. Suggestions for casting Return of Evangelicals and Catholics Together will be gratefully received. • We don’t know who wrote the flyer, but we suspect George Weigel, both because it’s very funny and because it has the then-dashing Jeremy Irons playing George. Now that we think of it, the flyer was written not too long after Anthony Hopkins played the serial killer Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs , but we don’t know if that means anything. • In an article on the anxieties of wealthy New York parents trying to get their small children into elite preschools, a New York Times reporter writes of standing outside one of the sought-after public schools, which happens to be one of four public schools recently the subject of a sex-abuse scandal. Thirty-five parents were touring the school, though they had little hope of getting their children in. Not one of them, Ginia Bellafante writes, “asked administrators a single question about the recent arrest of a teacher’s aide on charges that he was physically inappropriate with a male student. They believed that the matter was a failing of the Department of Education, not the current principal, and that bad things can happen anywhere and that, in any case, it is parents who need to teach children how to protect themselves.” She concludes the story: “That is true, of course. No school can inoculate a child against the unfortunate. Parenting demands vigilance as much as it does magical thinking.” We will bet a good bit of money that no New York Times reporter has ever written with such insouciance about a sex-abuse case in the Catholic Church. • But to be fair to the reporter, she opens her story with a great lead:
