Book to A Mother

As I said yesterday this blog is about the spiritual leper. According to the author of Book to A Mother spiritual lepers cannot tolerate anything they don’t like patiently! The author puts forward such a grotesque image of the spiritual leper that this title is reserved for the most extreme sinner. So repulsive is this type of person that the author wishes they could be made to live on the outskirts of towns the way actual lepers do. He sees the spiritual leper as more damaging to society than actual lepers. He also adds with quite bitter sarcasm that the only problem with his segregation idea is that it would leave too few people left in the towns....Something which still applies to modern society!
