Friday Afternoon Kudos
Well into the night last night, early this morning, during my morning 15 minutes, and now at lunch, I’ve been working on something with the potential to blossom into a pretty big deal, so my stack of topics to address has been growing rather than shrinking.
But the sun’s coming out, and it’s Friday afternoon, so it may be the perfect time to note a good article in the Sakonnet Times on our friend Matt Allen. The print edition has a short Q&A that doesn’t appear to be online, and given our different shades of conservatism, I found this exchange particularly interesting:
Have you ever changed your opinion on a particular subject after hearing from listeners? “Sure. I’ve gained more respect for people of faith more than anything. I used to think of religion as divisive and archaic and man-made. As you get older you realize how not in control you are of things. If I was ever in a foxhole and I needed somebody to back me up, I’d want somebody of faith sitting next to me because they believe in something bigger than themselves and being accountable to something else.”
The rest of the questions are worth reading, as well, if you can get your hands on a copy without making that long, long trip across the state.
