So I'm finally reading Stranger At The Gate, and I must say that I'm very impressed with it. I admire Mel's courage. He made a lot of mistakes that made me shake my head, but at the same time applaud him for having the guts to share. I also have to say that my opinion of some of the clergymen that he writes about has changed. Pat Robertson still freaks me out, but I found Jerry Falwell almost endearing. I think it was those gooey snowballs and the practical jokes. I hope that someday when we have reconciled our differences that we can end the fighting and love each other as we are meant to do.
