Jesus food and Texas Catholics

BBC reports on a new fad diet that has just come out. The Jesus Diet. Yes that's right, now you can lose weight the pious way, sticking the food Jesus ate as described by the bible. According to Dr. Dan Colbert, "If you truly want to follow Jesus in every area of your life you cannot ignore your eating habits." I'll be sure to tell that to people who are allergic to fish or have diabetes (hence the five loaves of bread is NOT such a good idea).

In another story, according to a survey reported in the Houston Chronicle, 3/4 of Texas Catholics support use of birth control. Also in the survey, Texas Catholics appear to split on the issue of women becoming priests; nearly 43% support women becoming priests while 50% oppose it.
