I love Cary Tennis, and I quoted him here in 2009. Today is Ash Wednesday so it seems a good day to repost him. –M.S.
“How could people of faith accept as a miracle an event in which faith came unbidden to someone, and yet condemn the opposite but equally plausible event in which faith did not come unbidden, or departed unbidden never to return? Why should one occurrence be treated with reverence and the other with scorn, if they are both equally mysterious in this putatively mysterious, god-infused universe?” – Cary Tennis
