The Friars of the Floral Business
Some Friars were behind on their belfry payments
, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise the funds. Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, the rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair.
He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the Friars to close. They ignored him. He asked his mother to go and ask the Friars to get out of business. They ignored her, too.
So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town, to “persuade” them to close. Hugh beat up the Friars and trashed their store, saying he’d be back if they didn’t close shop.
Terrified, the Friars did so – thereby proving that . . .
Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist Friars.

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.
