RARA-AVIS: Eye of the Beholder

About ten years ago, I saw a movie staring John Lithgow called, "At Play in the Fields of the Lord."

The movie is about missionary attempts to convert blood-thirsty natives in the jungles of South America.

I saw the movie as an indictment of agressive missionary work. A co-worker saw it as a wonderful story of a man trying to convert the natives to Jesus in spite of the negative result to the natives and to his own family.

We both saw the same picture. Now there is a case of morality being in the eye of the beholder. Both opinions appear to be valid according to a person's focus.
