    Apologies to the calvinists on the board - but this made me laugh and laugh HARD! The irony here is so . . . . poetic. :)

    John Knox's grave has been paved over. :) It's now a parking lot. :) I have to wonder if teens ever park on top and . . . . well - do those things teens like to do but shouldn't.

    ACTUALLY - I'd love to rent that lot - set up an alter directly over his grave and have a mass offered for the salvation of souls in purgatory.

    As a Catholic I find this humorous in an ironic way...

    Once a Reformer named Knox,
    Was buried in a plain wooden box,
    Teen lovers would park o'er him
    Though they never adored him
    They were just trying to get off their rocks.
