Dr. Laura and Doonesbury
Dr. Laura'a recent spiritual problems reminded me of a Doonesbury comic strip:
Doonesbury had a great series. Rev Scotty [who is, by the way, modeled on the Rev Scotty McClendon, a UU minister who has been for years the chaplain at MIT, now at Stanford and the author of a new book "Finding Your Religion" Scotty and Gary Trudeau were friends at Yale] is thrilled that Lieberman has started talking about God, about a loving, justice seeking God. My favorite was when the Rev is talking with BD and says how wonderful Lieberman's talk is, that it is not about a vengeful, angry Old Testament God but a loving God of the New Testament. To which BD replies "But isn't he Jewish?" And Scotty says, well yes, technically. But that is only his base.
