Doubt

From a rather interesting article (Why Elizabeth Edwards Left God Out of Her Last Goodbye) about Elizabeth Edwards’ faith:

“Such openness to doubt and, in particular, to the persistence of suffering runs counter to powerful currents of American Christianity that stress the blessings (mostly material) that will flow to those who believe (and donate), as well as to the premium so many Christians place on voicing a confident and undiluted conviction, no matter what the reality.”

Amen to that.

And bollocks to the writer of the “American Power”  blog who thinks its cool to criticize a dying woman’s last words.

“Still, at her death bed and giving what most folks are calling a final goodbye, Elizabeth Edwards couldn’t find it somewhere down deep to ask for His blessings as she prepares for the hereafter? I guess that nihilism I’ve been discussing reaches up higher into the hard-left precincts than I thought.”

From the comments on the second article, a quote…

“I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.”

– Ghandi
