I was working some old stuff off my DVR when this exchange caught my ear:
“Would it make a difference, were it demonstrated to be true?”
“No. I wish to keep him close to my heart, as an icon. The truth may be the truth, but I don’t need certain aspects of it to make me feel as if I’m close to him.”
This isn’t a traditional “Who said that,” as who is not as interesting as the context. I’m just curious if anybody else caught this remarkable example of American piety on PBS about a month ago.
