Behold, the wisdom of a man who let his wife die because his religious beliefs conflicted with her medical needs, but disregarded those religious beliefs when his own life depended upon medical treatments. Sometimes, when you are a minority of one, it's because you're wrong and someone you love is going to die because of it. So be careful when you think you're the only one who is right.
My views of this man changed a lot when I saw Russell Brand's show, and he tells the story about how Gandhi let his wife die. I thought maybe he'd taken some liberties with the truth, but I read up on it and damn. He not only let his wife die, he belittled her for wanting medicine rather than putting her life in God's hands. Then, 6 weeks later, when his life was in God's hands, he said "Give me the medicine." Suddenly, I saw Gandhi as Biblical figure. The one Jesus told to remove the plank from his own eye before commenting on the sliver in his neighbor's eye. All that wisdom, and yet he caused his own wife to die. SMH.
