    @TBO Agreed. And likewise, it's also the positive credit they give him that bothers me.

    I was talking to this cab driver the other day and he told me this amazing story about how he saved several children from a burning building in NYC awhile back. I told him he was a good man and should be proud of the accomplishment and his bravery.

    He actually turned around and told me it was Jesus. That Jesus/God made him save the children. I told him he should give himself some credit, but he wouldn't hear it. He was adamant that something outside himself that takes the credit for the good he did, and he likened that to all the good in the world. I didn't get into it with him, but it did bother me, because so much good happens in this world that we should be proud of.
