priests don't count?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 10, 2010

The US Census Bureau computer won't mail a form to a "business address," so priests who list the parish church as their residence aren't receiving forms. 

(The Census Bureau regards a parish as a "business." There's a lot they don't know.) 

BTW the Census computer won't send a form to a PO Box, either. In fact if there's anything unusual about your mailing address, and you yet haven't received a form, you probably won't get one. You can call to request a form, however, and with luck a human-- not a persnickety computer-- will oblige. The number is 800- 563- 6499 ext 9650.

    That's alright. Under the Osama administration, priests don't count. Unless they are priests like Father Michael Pfleger, good friend of the "Rev." Jeremiah Wright, spiritual mentor of the President of the United States, officiator at his wedding; baptisor of his daughters.
