Today is Guy Fawkes day. It is the day a patriot and true son of the Church tried to bring down a tyrant.
Interestingly enough, it also the day William of Orange, the usurper, landed at Brixham. William was supported by the Whigs, who were traitors to their king and country. Their reasoning? James II and VII was Catholic.
Today, of all days, I find these fact amusing. But then again, I've always had a rather odd sense of humor.
