“But lately it has all been falling apart.”
“You must expect that. Not everyone believed in the Founder’s ideas completely. One little girl didn’t believe at all. After He left, there was no one to answer prayers, and belief doesn’t last forever.”
“Are you saying that You — He — one or both of You — answered prayers?”
“Of course not. But We did have the capacity to convince people that their prayers were being answered, even when they got the opposite of what they asked for. Any good religion can do that. You people are very easy to convince.”
Okay, I see the uncomfortable resemblance too, but I wasn’t thinking of Trump when I wrote this. Honest!
Then I read on and found another thought two pages later:
“So how do we get our world back to reality?”
“Reality? Never heard of it. You don’t get back to reality, you create reality. Didn’t you understand a word I said? If you want a different reality, tear this one down, and build a new one.”
Now that I can stand behind.
