I have finally figured that the missals don't count. It only counts as "worship" if you are holding and actual, physical, approved bible in your hands. It's only worship if you're holding the bible, reading from the bible, following the bible letter by letter...
I'm actually at the point where I figure they are just worshiping the bible itself. The new golden calf has gilt edges and leather covers. They would walk right past Jesus on the street if he refused to look in one of their bibles.
After all, didn't he say "what you do for the least of these, you do for me?" But that's WORKS, you see, takes away from bible reading time.
I may have that quote wrong, I only read about a chapter a day from my bible, and don't bother memorizing it. I'd rather spent my time making baby layettes for the local Catholic charity maternity ward. All the WORKS we put in there goes a long way towards helping to lower the abortion rate. And yes, I do think God approves. ;)

She has a point,
new reader and frequent commenter Annie C made a good point on another thread. When I read it the words jumped off of the screen and I had an epiphany moment. I think Annie has hit the nail on the proverbial head. I don't think this holds true for all non-Catholic Christians but I think in this particular part of the blogosphere this might be true.
