CASUAL LIVING FAILS AT HUMOR

The Catholic League has protested a Casual Living catalog entry on prayer candles. Here is the catalog description of the candles: “HELP IS ON THE WAY. Clever, satirical prayer candles by Everyday Icons help protect a woman from everyday stress. ‘Powerful Protection from PMS Prayer,’ ‘Our Lady of Abundant Chocolate’ and ‘Prayer for Menopause Relief.’ Light the candle, say the appropriate words three times as instructed, wait and see! Fun gifts.”

The league has requested to see a sample of candles that offend Jews and Native Americans. What is perhaps most interesting about Casual Living is that no one who works there feels comfortable letting us know the name of the president.
