Geo Will

Listened to a speech that George Will gave recently at the Danforth Center, Washington University in St Louis. You can see it if you google "George F. Will Religion and Politics in the First Modern Nation" but allow about an hour to watch it.

He explained that he was going to tackle a complex subject, drawing a "picture" of what he believes the role of religion is in America. He was reminded of the third grade teacher who assigned the class to draw a picture of whatever each of them chose. She circulated through the room and paused at the desk of Sally. "What are you drawing?" "I'm drawing a picture of God." "But, Sally, no one knows what God looks like." "They will in a minute."

Listen to the video and you will, "in a minute," find out the vision of one of the really bright people in this country on this topic.
