Lauren Sandler – “This rain is proof that there is no God”.
These are tough times for any religion to justify itself. My upbringing tells me that it is only the belief in heaven, in the fact that this life is just a temporary waiting room for better things to come, that can provide any real comfort for those involved.
Still, can we pick and choose like that? There have been a large number of church services over the last few days, and many sermons preached. I haven’t heard much reference to loving your enemies, praying for those who persecute you, and especially not turning the other cheek.
