Man o man. I am sooooo tired of the hubris. As an atheist, perhaps I won’t be suspected of having a dog in this fight when I say, for the most part, the Catholics and the Lutherans do pretty well. (I’m sure there are others, exclusion from my little blog is not the same as condemnation). But the sheer racism, superiority, and…again…hubris, is nothing short of flabbergasting.

One of our most stark memories of that trip was of the spiritual oppression we felt. It was particularly sad to see Buddhist and Hindu funeral processions.

The lack of hope was palpable and our close realization of the thousands and millions living and perishing apart from Christ left us greatly saddened. The ubiquity of idols added to the physical and spiritual oppression.
