The Deacon's Bench

Do you feel like there’s a way in which God is disappointed with you now?

Yes, absolutely. Every day. Every day. Because I am like anyone else. I revert to bad, selfish behavior. I try to make myself not do it, but I’m like everybody else. Sometimes better; sometimes worse. And I think there’s not a single day goes by that He doesn’t feel some disappointment in me. But, He doesn’t give up on me–never gives up on me. — John Edwards, in a Beliefnet interview, while running for president in 2007.

Now we know what he was talking about.

This whole episode is sad for all concerned.
