The News of the Year In Religion
I am going to focus on the hurricanes and on Tookie Williams.
I turned on the television this morning to see if he had been executed and when I saw his face, I immediately felt sick. I have many mixed feelings about the death penalty -- I WANT to be totally against it on principle -- but in this case, I just felt in a very visceral sense that I didn't want to participate in pumping this man full of poison. That's all.
I'll work it out for the sermon. Meanwhile, what do you think merits the Story of the Year in Religion?
