We’ve come a long way since Job

24 August 2003

…although, perhaps, not in the right direction.

Shorter John Derbyshire:

“Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell thought that 9/11 was divine punishment for American hedonism. We Episcopalians don’t have such a crude view of divine justice. Then again, Episcopalian theology is kind of watered-down and PC compared to the way it was in the good old days, and those Baptists sound really butch when they breathe fire about God’s wrath being visited upon the heathens. Then again, they’re probably wrong.”
