Behind the scenes...

I love TheCall. I love what it stands for and how it does it. I also love the off beat things that happen back stage....

We had a large contingency of Catholics join us in California - more than any other event. We also had a Catholic Bishop lead in prayer late in the afternoon. He was a very pleasant little Mexican fellow who patiently waited behind the stage, enduring our multiple schedule shifts until it was his turn.

A few minutes before he went on, he motioned for me to come down off the stage. When I did, he shouted in my ear over the sound of the band. Between the accent and his collar, all I could think of was Nacho Libre.

He said "Dey ask me to not pray to de saints, and not to pray de rosary..."

I nod, not quite sure where this is going. He continues....

"Is it ok if I cast out de devils and bind dem to hell?"

I don't remember what I said exactly, but I assured him that he was correct. No to saints and the rosary, thumbs up to casting out devils and binding them to hell.

That's good theology right there.

This is the funniest thing I've heard in days. Why didn't you tell me this a few days sooner?
