A question I wasn’t expecting

I seldom mention the unusual questions I sometimes field from members of the press, because, really, it is my job to be asked unusual questions and to help whoever is going to write about us to feel comfortable in their knowledge. But in this case I can’t resist. I just had a call from a reporter from an overseas news agency asking me what we as a Church thought about the commercialization of Saint Valentine’s Day in America. I admitted that I had never given the issue a moment’s thought, and was willing to wager that not even Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity would see the profusion of ads for pendants and posies as a sign of resurgent secularism.
