As Béarla led thoil?

"May the road rise to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and rains fall soft upon your fields, and, until we meet again, may god hold you in the hollow of his hand."

Guest Post Tonight

A bit under the weather tonight so Boomer is graciously filling in...

The other night, my father and I had a humorous discussion about religion and beliefs...

Earlier that day, I had become passionate about a certain topic in a debate with a few of my classmates. The discussion went on until they started calling me an atheist. I, personally, am well founded in a walk with my savior Jesus Christ. I did not appreciate being called this. As the bell rang and I rushed out the door to pick up my grandmother, I thought about what they said, to great extent..Courtesy of SinFest I ran many words through my head, one of which being hypocrite. I thought about them being hypocrites for so blatantly calling me out as not believing in a higher power such as God. We all clearly, at some point and time, act as though we don't believe in God. I soon moved from this topic and passed through yet another word, realistic. My points made in class were not atheistic, but instead, in a sense of mankind, realistic. I was being realistic to the accomplishments of ordinary man with no assistance of a higher being. This, in my opinion, does not make me an atheist.


Later that evening, I sat down at the computer and told my father about this event while he was preparing supper. He then, with a clever chuckle, told me that he would rather be an realist than a hypocrite. I smiled and responded that I had the best of both worlds, I was a realistic hypocrite. Somehow, unbeknownst to me, he thought this was comical and began to laugh. I found joy at the sight of my father being amused by something I did, so I joined him in a father son cackle.
