Too bad it wasn't a Chthulu fish. [Big Grin]

Well, a Chthulu fish is better than the Goat With a Thousand Young, at least.

I'm a little suspicious of it because it seems to me that they are commercializing their faith, so I tend not to do business with those places, either.

My brother was ripped off for thousands of dollars by people who proudly displayed the fish symbol on everything they owned, and later told him that he would never succeed in business because he wasn't a Christian.
My very own priest always tells us that in business dealings, when someone starts in on what a good Christian business person they are, to check your wallet.

There are some really ethical and decent business people out there who attribute their good business practises to their faith, but they generally aren't the ones who go around advertising it. They are the doers, not the talkers.
Whenever someone starts in the minute I meet them on how good a Christian they are, I run for the hills. (I would react that way towards any faith but there aren't anything except Christians where I live, anyway.)

This no doubt recalls similar rumours involving McDonald's restaurants some 25 years ago, based on the (supposed) boast of a high-level executive from the chain claiming on Phil Donahue's show that they donate profits to the Church of Satan; remember those rumours?
That was Proctor & Gamble.

Apparently the rumor was started by some Amway folks.

Hey, remember some witches are very nice (Glenda in the 'Wizard of Oz'). Then again, there are others - like my ex. [Smile]

One more thing. Witchcraft and Satanic Worship are totally separate practices. Take a class on Wicca if you get a chance. Great experience for myself.

Satanic worship is actually an offshoot of christianity. Since Satan only exists there.
