And I’ll make a couple of comments:
1. I’d say this story, with some slight variations, is not uncommon.
2. People who think that
(a) they have all the answers; or,
(b) all the answers are found in reading the Bible; or,
(c) that the answers are primarily political . . .
. . . may possibly be mistaken.
3. This story, and the many like it, have implications.
