Blind faith might not be evil, but it sure makes you look silly
A few feet away, a small group burst into hymns, singing the traditional song "How Great Thou Art'' as Richard Jacobson, of Corning, N.Y., accompanied them on a tarnished trumpet.
Jacobson, who has been playing religious and patriotic music outside the hospice for the past three days, said he didn't really believe that Terri was dead.
"I'm not believing the report of man,'' he said. "God will raise her from the dead, and all the world will see it."
I've got a wager for you, Richard. If Schiavo is resurrected in next 3 days, I'll volunteer an hour a week for whatever organization you choose -- for the rest of my life. If she's not resurrected, you've got to stop playing the trumpet. Is it a bet?
