I'm amazed at the number of people writing on the internet against the ice bucket challenge craze. Reactions vary, but often settle on the waste of resources and so on. For goodness sake!
How on earth could anyone gauge the 'waste' of water in terms of earths resources ?
I hope you've done your research . . As an aid you could add
the number of computers 'catholic' bloggers leave on standby
The number of churches heated with their doors left open or broken thermostats or boilers that don't save energy,
How much water is dumped down every piscine in the land during the week?
Leaking water stand pipes in cemeteries attached to churches,
The number of churches lit by non-energy saving light bulbs,
Empty presbyteries with lights left on to deter burglars,
The energy used to heat large convents and monasteries with only a handful of people in them ?
Mealy mouth suggestions I know . . But so too are those objections to the ice bucket challenge ! Would God really be interested in the waste of water or in the enthusiasm of people caring to help those less fortunate than themselves ?
