I really didn't mean to cause so much controversy in the post earlier this week about Michael. This blog is all about my journey as a new Catholic, and part of that journey is to figure out how to best juxtapose my new beliefs onto my existing life. Michael's commitment ceremony is part of that.
I do appreciate everyone's feedback on the comments section, and hope that I haven't upset too many people from the post.
Oh, and the way I got uninvited from the wedding is that my husband made a comment about the groom-to-be that the bride-to-be did not approve of in his weekly podcast (he said that our friend quitting a band a week before they got signed was ... let's just say that my husband called that a stupid decision) and the bride-to-be got on my husband's blog and made terribly tacky comments about my husband, his show and my personal life and friends that were completely uncalled for. Then she uninvited us to the wedding.
It's a shame, really. He was one of my oldest friends, and the comment was not a direct insult to him but saying that his actions were not the smartest. No, we don't know the whole story behind why the friend left the band, but instead of calling us out on his comment or trying to discuss the misunderstanding like adults, we were berated in a public forum by his girlfriend which is just way too 8th grade for my tastes. I was really looking forward to getting them a fondue set for their present, too.
