Not Getting It

I was talking with someone who had recently sent a child off to university. He mentioned that he had told a colleague that he had cried a lot since his daughter had left home.

His colleague replied, "Why have you been crying a lot? Don't you know it is good for her?"

Um, could there possibly be a stupider take on this? The problem my friend was having was not that he thought college was bad for his daughter, but that he missed her.

Now compare atheists who say, "If Christians really believed in heaven, they would not cry at funerals."

  1. I almost can't believe the colleague actually said that... But right, the crying at funerals quip is astounding.
