Just like the Vatican it does not miss a trick. It saddens me to see that religion boils down to crass consumerism like everything else. Religion for profit? I don't like the idea.

Even though I feel that way I still stopped and bought two items. I purchased a fridge magnet as my wife collects them and I bought a Rosary for my mother-in-law. She is a devout Catholic and got a real kick out of it.

Enis did make a funny though. He looked at me and said as only a world wise Bosnian can, "Don't you see the Irony of this? Here we are, a Muslim and a Protestant buying Catholic souveneirs. All of this in a Catholic town in a Muslim country"

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
