Writing this post saddens me. I remember the day my first snood arrived in the mail. It was a Garland's of Grace Snood and it was beautiful. I highly recommended them on my blog, repeatedly. I loved my snood so much that I came up with my own design and basically taught myself to sew. Sure the little packets of scripture that were included made me slightly uncomfortable, because I knew that they were verses that are frequently taken out of context and twisted so that they can be "used" against Catholics, but it wasn't blatant and I decided to ignore it. Her products are good.
Then I saw this, this morning. I was reading my favorite Anglo-Catholic blog, and she pointed me over to this post on It's On My To Do List. And I actually started shaking a little. I had to see it for myself. So I headed over to GoG's facebook page, hoping against hope that there was some mistake, or that maybe the owner had put it up in a heated moment and taken it down. No such luck. It's real. It's there. It's started a debate.
As you all know I'm a Catholic small business owner. I buy from Catholic businesses. I buy from other non-Catholic Christian businesses. I buy from non-Christian businesses. I have a problem buying anything from a business that thinks I'm a burden.
In light of all the reviews and glowing praise I've given Garland's of Grace over the years, I had to post this. Now you know and can make your own decision. It's On My To Do List gives a list of businesses in the post I linked to above.
This just makes me kind of sad. But I can't say I'm really surprised.
