In today's installment of Andy Capp, one of the all-time great cartoon strips, the minister chastises Andy for being proud of his soccer (football) performance, saying "Pride is a sin".
What is wrong with being proud of oneself? The guy must be a protestant, the ones that are deathly afraid of someone somewhere being happy. I taught my children to be proud of their achievements and of doing the best they could. Besides, since there is no right or wrong, I'm as much right as any fool preacher. (Remember what I wrote about believing that god talks to you?)
