Acelaşi autor revine cu o temă pe care a mai tratat-o în emisiunile sale radio: cum anume ne raportăm la alte religii, ce înseamnă respectul în acest caz? Respectăm credincioşii altor religii, dar nu religia acelor credincioşi?

Este Ziua Mamei o idee proastă? Se pare că da, dar problema trebuie nuanţată.
Mother’s Day is a bad idea because it subverts the reality of faithful mothering and robs faithful mothers of their true glory. Mothers deserving of honor are handed cards and taken to lunch, when songs of praise should instead be offered to the glory of God. Undeserving mothers, who abdicate their true responsibility, are honored just because they are mothers. Children, young and old, who ignore and dishonor their mothers by word and by life throughout the year, assuage their guilt by making a big deal of Mother’s Day.
