Taking a Break from the Mark Richt Bashing: Chaplain Mike on the Myth of Independence

Today I am going to hit “Pause” on all the Mark Richt bashing that has been taking place here during the past week, and direct your attention to a post by Chaplain Mike over at Internet Monk that I believe would be worth your while to consider.

We Americans, and American evangelicals in particular, are all about independence.  We love to fancy ourselves as self-sufficient people and take pride in our ability to live as autonomous, self-determining individuals.  But are we really?  Think about what it took for you to be here, sitting at your computer, reading this blog.  In order for that to happen, you are dependent upon other people to a much greater extent than you would think at first.
