Montini Tries to Be Profound
About Blair Gadsby:
The thin man sitting outside the office of a U.S. senator isn't simply raising questions about 9/11, he's raising a question about us.
By fasting for all those days in public he is, by example, asking this question : For what cause or belief would you go hungry, risk your livelihood, your health, your reputation?
What bugs us and causes many of us to treat someone like Gadsby with disdain is that we have no good answer to that question.
To which I reply that several members of the Heaven's Gate Cult castrated themselves. For what cause or belief would E.J. Montini be willing to castrate himself? What bugs us and causes many of us to treat somebody like Marshall Applewhite with disdain is that we have no good answer to that question.
