WAITING FOR THE SON

Hey Polly,

Like you, I got to where I found the whole thing [Christianity] pretty implausible myself. [But] one of the most satisfying things is discovering that being a Christian doesn't make one a prude or a self-righteous dullard. Jesus' first miracle was providing booze to a party that had run out, a skill that would have made him immensely popular here in Atlanta. He hung out with the dregs of society — hookers and bums; called the religious leaders of the day vipers; and took time out to beat up merchants in the temple.

He was hardly the glassy-eyed, mystic wimp we're used to seeing in the movies. He also said cool stuff like, "Don't cast your pearls to swine," something to which any writer should be able to relate....

Best,

Rip
