So I just happened to be listening to Christian radio as I was adjusting the channels.
And as they came on, they said something to this effect:
“It’s the bottom of the ninth. Bases are loaded. And your son strikes out. Take time to tell him that he’s still a winner in your eyes.”
Fundamentalist Christianity has some problems. Some really, really serious problems. But that was actually a bit of a gospel of the truth of love.
Maybe we should start focusing on giving kind people better ways of expressing that kindness than protesting abortion clinics instead of wagging our finger at them about their faith.
