Saw this over at JT’s place and it made me laugh. It’s a letter to the editor of the Providence Journal suggesting that Christians should take concrete and effective action to convert Jessica Ahlquist to Christianity.
Excoriating Jessica Ahlquist is not going to accomplish anything positive. What will help is for all believers to offer up to God their prayers, fasts and other sacrifices for her conversion and that of all atheists, especially during Lent. Small sacrifices add up. Forgo a candy bar, a new blouse, etc. God may have allowed this controversy for a reason — for Jessica’s conversion. We are his tools; let him use us. God is in charge!
I absolutely agree. Everyone who disagrees with Jessica should pray, fast and sacrifice candy bars in the name of converting her. That’s a lot better than sending threatening emails and letters. Pray, fast and sacrifice candy bars 24 hours a day if you want.
Thanks for the blog fodder, JT. But I’m still gonna crush you like a grape at the poker tournament.
