Diversity Begins at Home
The Boy has a friend who is a Jehovah’s Witness, which occasioned the following discussion in the car on the way home from Mass. (I wasn’t there; this is according to TW.)
TB: He doesn’t believe the same things I believe, but it’s still okay to be friends with him, right?
TW: Of course! Good people believe all kinds of different things, and they’re still good people. Like I’m Catholic, and so are you, and so is TG, but Daddy is...
The Girl: Daddy!
Harsh, but still. You should know better.
I'm somewhat amused to see that someone has simultaneously thrown stones (non-existent sky-wizards), and constructed their own glass house within the space of three sentences.
Nice job there.
