Like a hurt lost and blinded fool

If you've spent any time around me especially on recent Fridays, you know that I am basically a lapsed Catholic, and mostly I have some spiritual beliefs but am not "religious". You might also remember I've reflected a bit on this. So I suppose it should come as no surprise that after reading something in this morning's Slate that I am contemplating purchasing or borrowing the works of William Sloane Coffin. My spirituality is mine, and I will never be one of those people who can try to push it to other people, but at the same time I do feel the need to try to understand it and how it fits with the rest of my world view, and when and why it doesn't necessarily fit with everyone's (and why so many horrible things are commited in the names of people's dieties and their disciples, or in spite of them by people who claim to believe).
