I never thought this Presidential race would become one on theology. I thought maybe a passing reference as to why we don’t say prayers at football games. But here we are arguing rather gamely about Christianity, Islam, and oh yes, all those other beliefs. Mr. Santorum is front and center deciding who is worthy of Heaven.
I don’t suppose it matters “under the canopy of eternity” (as one of my professors in college used to say) what we think. More and more when one sees an expanding universe, one has real humility for our place in the cosmic scheme of things. Like the dust mites that live in our home, we live as almost invisible amidst the galaxies that stagger even the concept of infinity.
I would not presume to know the deep purpose of existence. It is enough to go on existing, fighting every day to make my own little universe a better place for all who touch it. I can only observe that those who wear their holiness on their sleeve are in danger of finding everyone very unsatisfactory, including themselves.
