I love The Old Testament. I do! I love it now for all the reasons I hated it as a sensitive, compassionate little girl. Life is so hard, people are so bad, and God is cruel, and just a little bit nuts. It’s crazy, and I love it.
I hope to treat this topic in two pieces: what I think of religion and Laurel, and the very different and more academic topic of my interpretation of religion with respect to abortion.
