|A little ruby-crowned kinglet at the LA County Arboretum seemed anxious about something, but not to whisper in our ears.|
Have you ever noticed that God always seems to tell people to do exactly what they wanted to do already?
It's almost as if people are confusing their own inner voice for God's.
The hospital chaplain's inner voice certainly didn't tell him to respect my and my loved ones' nonbelief.
I still can't believe that he would pray, "May you take the Lord's light into your heart and be healed," within earshot of my mother, after she told him we were atheists.
When my mother first told me of this, I could still hear the anger in her voice.
What "man of God" would say that in front of an atheist mother grieving over her dying atheist daughter?
Apparently, to him, nondenominational didn't mean he had to respect those with no faith at all.
