Students’ lack of belief in God
Sir, – Being worried about the recent poll of students which reports that only 37.5 per cent say they believe in God, I decided to contact God, since He is the focus of the survey, and it is only fair that He be given an opportunity to respond.
As I work for Him I have a hot-line to His office. I said “Dear God what do You think of this great number of young people who do not believe in You?” He said “Ah wisha [God always speaks in the local dialect] I feel sorry for them. They are so caught up in their mobiles, iPads and TV soaps that they are like spoilt children who have forgotten me, the one who has given them this beautiful world and all the good things of life. But tell them I love them and will always love them”.
I said “Go raibh míle maith agat a Dhia”.– Yours, etc,
