Sorry for Jane

July 27, 2005

Jane Fonda says she is "coming out." Fonda has announced she and her daughter will make a cross-country bus tour in March to protest the Iraq war.

The bus will use vegetable oil as fuel.

She says she'll be joined by Iraq war veterans and her daughter.

How 1960's!

As the first journalist to write about Jane Fonda's announcement she had accepted Christ and to give her whatever cover my endorsement might have brought, it is time to speak up again.

In her book, "My Life, So Far," she says she has become a Universalist and now believes there are many ways to God and that Jesus is not the only way.

This is what happens when one is not discipled and begins reading other books and listening to other voices that sow doubt.

Jesus referred to it as "stony ground" in the parable of the sower.

It is sad watching a once great sports figure whose time has passed trying to make a comeback.

It is sadder, still, watching one who professed conversion now embracing her radical political past and trying to attach it to a nonspecific universal religion without content and without cost.

I am sorry for her.
