Pagan Blessing at Casino

St. Isaac Jogues, pray for us.

I heard on the radio (WILK) that the local casino was starting its table games today. The state just gave permission to do so. Among the festivities was an "indian blessing" (pagan consecration?) of the new tables for the casino.

That should tell you everything you need to know about the activities that will go on there. The state will use the taxes from the casino, which has blessed pagan gambling tables, to make money for various programs.

This would never happen, but could you imagine if a Catholic priest came to bless the tables that would be used to support state sponsored programs?

Consider, should you go, upon what you place your chips. You are putting your money down on a consecrated pagan table...almost like an offering...and playing a game of chance, with the hope of winning money.

Just some things to think about.
