Things Sacred & Profane: AA Spirituality, GWB Drunk with Rev. Graham, and Einstein on God

Einstein– Alcoholics Anonymous as a spiritual experience.

– So apparently former President Bush was sloshed the first time he met Billy Graham. He had had “about four beers and five wines.” Well done, sir.

– It’s always remarkable to me how much interest surrounds Albert Einstein’s thoughts about God. It’s the modern equivalent to the search for the historical Jesus. Was he an atheist? Was he a deist? A theist? I like to think that, first and foremost, he was a lover of form and beauty and a man humbly grasping at cosmic straws.

– Is the fetal Christ ad about incarnation of abortion? Or both?
