You’ll know Eric MacDonald if you frequent this website or Butterflies and Wheels: in both places (and God knows where else) he leaves thoughtful and critical comments about religion. And Eric knows whereof he speaks: he’s an ex-Anglican priest and a strong advocate of assisted suicide. Many of us have urged him to start his own website, and now he has. Reflecting his interest in euthanasia, it’s called Choice in Dying, and is dedicated to his late wife, Elizabeth, who was afflicted with MS and chose to take her life at the Dignitas clinic in Switzerland (Eric tells the story on the website). I suspect that the backlash from his church and the Canadian authorities about this assisted suicide helped wean Eric from his faith.
Anyway, as you might guess from having read his posts, Eric doesn’t confine himself to assisted suicide, but deals as well with other problems of faith. The good news is that he’s posting regularly; the bad news is that he may now be too busy to leave his wonderful comments on our own websites. Bookmark his site, and leave some comments.
