Ash Wednesday Sniper

Despite what you may read here, I have nothing against Catholics. I went to a Catholic high school, have Catholic best friends, and have had a number of positive experiences with the church. I would never do or consider doing the following.

Every Ash Wednesday, I get the idea of a Catholic-hating sniper striking every year, putting bullets through the blessed foreheads. I don't know why. Hordes of screaming masses, bodies outside of cathedrals. People wearing silly hats on the streets to avoid becoming targets. Other Christian branches trying to gain converts. The sniper evading the police year after year, vanishing off the map. Why can't I shake this idea?

Like many people, I forgot about the settlement until my $13.86 arrived yesterday.
