In Texas: A Little Too Close to the Cows

Posted by Richard Conniff on December 22, 2014

NPR’s Morning Edition interviewed some nuns from a convent that operates a ranch somewhere in the great and very peculiar state of Texas.  I was going along with it just fine, until Sister Mary Longhorn said, “Praying is like chewing the cud. You chew, chew, chew, regurgitate, chew, chew, chew.”

This is even worse than when the nuns in grade school taught us that short, ecstatic prayers were “ejaculations.”

I stand by the larger truth that God is Dog.
