I would say that his life was typical of the life that we ALL face...and like my friend I am glad that I dont HAVE to be perfect because I believe that Jesus was perfect.... and He took my place so that I dont have to pay for the times I failed.
The "honorable" Rev. Lewis is a idiot...and a hypocritical phoney.
Ray was saying that McNair followed Jesus' example, not that Steve resembled Christ.
Lewis is probably one of the most devout Christians in the league, so I'm pretty sure Ray would think about a speech like this beforehand.
