The New Battle of New Orleans

Although my exodus from Louisiana to Texas occurred more than 7 years ago, I still try to stay on top of what's going on "over there" and especially in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Really, New Orleans and the surrounding area is pretty unique. I've discovered that even more now that I live elsewhere.

Yesterday, I caught a story from WWLTV that just reinforced what I already knew. The Archdiocese of New Orleans gets involved in some ways that are pretty unique as well.

I'm guessing most people know that there has long been a crime problem in New Orleans. The Archdiocese has gotten involved many times in the past and is doing so again. This time, dubbing the action as "The New Battle of New Orleans", the Archdiocese will be distributing yard signs to parishioners. The yard signs read "Thou Shalt not kill - God". The Archdiocese says that if the signs are a hit (no pun intended), then it will print more.

Here's the story:
