Conversion on the Bike Path
In India, many people consider cows to be sacred. In Vermont, they worship bicycles.
How else to explain this exchange between Dean and ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos last Sunday, after Dean was asked if he was raised Roman Catholic.
“No, raised Episcopalian, and I ended up as a Congregationalist,” Dean said.
Why did he become a Congregationalist?
“Because I had a big fight with a local Episcopal church about 25 years ago over the bike path. . . . We were trying to get the bike path built. They had control of a mile and a half of railroad bed, and they decided they would pursue a property right suit to refuse to allow the bike path to be developed.”
I didn’t realize that the narrow door Jesus asked us to strive for was accessed via a bike path. Maybe that is why the door is narrow.
