My wife called my attention to the newspaper account of a wedding held recently. The article reported that, as part of the ceremony, the couple released 100 doves.
As a clergyman, some wedding expert will have to explain to me what releasing 100 doves has to do with a Christian wedding.
We are only left to imagine how many other superfluous — and expensive — things were done to attempt to make this wedding a success. What makes a successful wedding is a successful marriage.
In today’s world of hungry and hopeless people, to spend the money to release 100 doves tells two things about our society: We have money, and we have no moral compass.
