Readers Guide to story “Mother Teresa Goes to Heaven.”

Following the recent ‘review‘ of this short story of mine it was evidence that this reader’s comprehension guide could be of use.  Now, it ought to go without saying- but clearly has to be said, anyway- that it will be of no use to anyone who hasn’t actually read the story for themselves or doesn’t have it in front of them.   However, it might be of use to any would-be reviewers… Go here if you wish to buy the stories and thereby be informed.

Reader’s guides for each of the three stories have been written and will be … continue reading...

PZ Myers Posts his Review of “Mother Teresa Goes to Heaven.”

PZ Myers posted his review of one of the stories in my recently released short story collection today.  This one is of “Mother Teresa Goes to Heaven.”  I have no interest in responding to it, though perhaps when he is done may respond to them all.  At any rate, if you want to read his ‘review’ for yourself you can check it out.

However, it goes a bit without saying- although, apparently it must be said- there is no way you can possibly know if his review has any merit at all unless you read it for yourself.  That, … continue reading...

Richard Dawkins Goes to Heaven? Short Story

What?  The uncompromising atheist Richard Dawkins goes to heaven?  While remaining an atheist?  How is this possible?  And yet, in this short story written by yours truly, something very much like that happens…  Read this short story, along with two others, on Kindle. You can also buy for Barnes and Noble’s Nook.

What sounds like the beginning of a very bad joke is actually the title of a collection of three poignant short stories by author Anthony Horvath. Each story draws from what is publicly known about these three notable persons and places them in the presence of … continue reading...

PZ Myers: People are Just Meat, Deal with It

HT Mariano

PZ Myers continues to descend down the various stages into madness that atheism can lead a person- that is to say, like the religionists he despises, he also believes every lick of what he says he believes.  In a recent blog post writing in reaction to an email from a pro-life person, he writes:

“You want to make me back down by trying to inspire revulsion with dead baby pictures? I look at them unflinchingly and see meat. And meat does not frighten me.”

On PZ’s view, we are all meat, whether we are diced and sliced or … continue reading...

Short Story: Mother Teresa Goes to Heaven

This short story was inspired by this article at Time, here. I blogged on that article here: “Mother Teresa had moments of doubt?


“It is not enough to save you.”

Teresa heard the words with horror. She had heard the entire conversation and she trembled throughout it. Each utterance was burned into her mind so that she could recount it accurately in her mind. She remembered the man’s demeanor before he entered the room. Cool, calm, confident. In the quiet conversation between those that remained in the waiting area it was shared by all that this man … continue reading...

Mother Teresa had moments of doubt?

This blog inspired by this article at Time. I consequently wrote this short story called “Mother Teresa Goes to Heaven.”

I will admit that I didn’t follow the life and times of Mother Teresa. What I know comes from news reports and things of that sort. That said, I think this article really illustrates a common misconception about being a Christian, and to be honest, it is one more thing we can lay at the feet of Christians themselves. The article expresses pure shock that Mother Teresa could do what she did while simultaneously feeling distant from God. … continue reading...
