St. Patrick's day. Anybody know what its for? Apparently its about an Irish man named Patrick. A bishop in 387 AD. Some people believe that he changed his name when he became a bishop from Maewyn Succat to St. Patrick. His beliefs were that the druids(priests) were unholy worshipers and that they were praising the wrong things such as "plants or planets (Scientology?)". He converted many "pagans" into Christianity. Patrick's ideals or goals were not to take away anybodies religion away but to show them the new "god", something that he thought was better than any other beliefs. Well, he must have knew what he was talking about because he ended up building hundreds of churches and baptized over a hundred thousand people. Talk about religion pushers i got a advertisement in the mail today to convert to Jehovah’s Witness. Shockin'.
