Cognitive dissonance
Sometimes you come across two things which, standing on their own, wouldn't get much notice, but when put together create some cognitive dissonance. Such was the case when I opened the mail a couple of days ago. I read the opening line of one letter:

"The Easter holiday brings with it a time to reflect on the life, death, and resurrection of Christ and the tremendous impact that has had on our lives." The use of "holiday" aside, why the dissonance?

Because of the letterhead. Twentieth Century Fox, Beverly Hills, California. I think Fr. Tharp got this promotional letter too.
