After I’d been in the nursing home/rehab center for a few weeks, a psychologist came to talk to me.
She saw the Bible on my table and asked, “Why do you have a Bible in your room?”
“To read,” I said.
So then she asked if I read the Bible a lot.
“What you’re really asking,” I said, “is am I a religious fanatic. No, I’m not. FANATICS try to force their religion on others.”
I then asked her to leave; I did not want to deal with her.
What I WISH I’d said is, “I have a Bible in my room because this is America, a free country, and in a free country, I can have a Bible without being questioned about it.”
