Misguided credit

Jesus and Mo satirizes the tendency to thank Our Invisible Friend for the work of men.

As longtime readers know, my son was born with an extremely unusual cardiac condition requiring years of sophisticated treatment, including a couple of very delicate surgeries; mercifully, there is now no reason why he shouldn’t live an ordinary life. I annoyed a lot of people through the years whenever I answered the exclamation “Thank, God!” with “I thank the doctors, the scientists, and the engineers who made the tools.”

All “God” gave us was a problem to be solved; it was disciplined minds that gave us a solution.
