Random Fred Quote

I met Father Joe, a Catholic priest who works with people with AIDS. This sounds cloyingly virtuous, unless you have AIDS. More on him in another column. But I thought, “A Christian who acts like one. What a concept.” I’m accustomed to thinking of Christians as mean fundamentalist Protestants who want to kill anyone they can find in the name of Jesus. I realized that I had grown to think of the whole religion as a species of fraud. Here was a guy who apparently took the New Testament seriously. Tough as a boot sole, razor smart, swears like a sailor. If he isn’t careful, he’s going to give Christians a good name.

I certainly don’t agree with Fred on every level, but sometimes he comes up with gems like the one above, which was found in this article about Thailand.
