Smile, yes if she only knew. A couple of years ago an older gentlemen, who was a Catholic priest, became blind. The catholic diasis treated him like a lepper. They couldn't wait to get him out of the church and were not the least bit interested in working with us to help find solutions so the poor guy could continue doing gods work, which was his passion. Great Christian message there.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

As long as we're into this intense discussion about the nature and purpose of education/life/existence, I thought I would add a little levity to the discussion.
My very Catholic family knew a number of clergy when I was a little boy. When I went blind at around twelve years old, I overheard my mother being counseled by a nun. One of the things she said was: "Well, I know this must be very difficult to deal with (having a blind child) but think of it Ann, you won't have to worry about his teenage years--you know--maturity--having sex before marriage--and so on.
This nun must have thought in her relatively restricted environment that blind people wouldn't be sexual or involved in all that evils stuff.
(SOLID CAPS) IF SHE ONLY KNEW...!
