Things Have Come To A Pretty Pass

Good column by Chuck Colson.

It starts thusly:
Ironically, while the Supreme Court was debating the role of religion in American public life and whether the monuments of the Ten Commandments could stand on public property, one group of Americans has settled the question for themselves. Medical students in Boca Raton, Florida, recently filled their classroom with the smell of incense and the sound of ancient chants. They lit candles and spoke about the body being the “temple of the soul.” And they did it all “on a state university campus, in facilities funded with . . . tax dollars.”

Did I mention that all this chanting and candle-lighting was in accordance with Buddhist ritual? You didn’t really think that it would be Christian, did you?

Exxxxxcelent posts today, Matteo! THank you.

Well, maybe the Buddhists will bring back a respect for life thus far tossed off by the modern med. community. After all, if there is a soul 'in there' you might not be allowed to kill said patient.

God works in mysterious ways.
