One Response to Life Isn’t Fair, Either

  1. John says:

    True, as the comic strip says, “Life is not fair”. But many church members, those mostly of conservative bent, are much like the father, who, with a bit of smugness, are quick to remind minorities, the poor, unwed mothers, many who are on welfare and medicaid, that life is not fair, that they should stop feeling entitled.

    But, as soon as they do not get their own way and feel ignored when it comes to decisions within the church, they are willing to tear the church apart.

    My point is that the only ones who can actually communicate constructively the truth that life is not fair are those who can say it without looking down on those spoken to, and can say it by concluding, “…and I know that it hurts”.
