Catholic Explanation Corner.
I uncorked the term "apostasized" during a discussion of a buddy's rather ill-advised decision to start rooting for the Michigan State Spartans today.
In my house, no less. I had the last laugh. Silly Sparty. Heh, heh, heh....
Still, the term drew a "what the-?" response from the non-Catholics in the room. I deserved that.
Well, here's the explanation of the term, based as it is on the word "apostasy."
I now return you to your regularly scheduled sporting event.
