In the entertainment world, religious orthodoxy can’t get no respect. Often holy men and their adherents are portrayed as hucksters, hypocrites or intolerant oppressors. More gracious efforts typically serve up squishy humanism or treacly nonsense. That’s why it’s refreshing to see this clip from ER, wherein a dying man dismantles the empty advice from a liberal chaplain.
