And a bi-locating priest, at that!

This has got to be one of the funniest threads ever.  (Sorry, Tri :o)  I get to go home in 3 minutes and I'll be laughing all the way.

THANK YOU, WPM!!

I think the answer is "Yes, with permission, a priest is supposed to come and bless your house. No, he isn't supposed to rummage through your desk drawers or turn on your computer and check your recycle bin/Internet history."

Assuming I'm understanding the question right. Which I may not be.

When my mom started attending an Assembly of God church (mainly because the pastor spoke Chinese)  the pastor came over to our house and starting pointing out things that he considered idolatrous, including one of those wrought-iron stork and tortoise candle holders (an innocuous Chinese decoration, but he made us get rid of it). Fortunately some of my favorite paintings that would probably have given him a heart attack were conveniently in storage. Puritanism is gross.
