On the one hand, it certainly is mistaken to [Read More…]

Alcatraz: Spiritual rather than Religious

I am about a week behind on watching Alcatraz, and have not blogged about every episode. But one of the episodes that aired last week, “The Ames Brothers,” bears mention because religion features prominently, if briefly.
