Comment of the Day: God & Josh Hamilton
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We went to a Katy church event featuring Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton, just after his publicized relapse into alcohol.

We wondered if he was taking enough responsibility for the incident, in lieu of just accepting "God's forgiveness." A decent discussion ensued.
I appreciated your take on this event, John. As a Christian, it IS great to have God's forgiveness when we screw up. Yet, I sure hope Hamilton isn't giving in to his temptations simply because he knows he will be forgiven. The way the event went(according to your description), I see how that could be the preception.
