[342] Norm Mcdonald

Stand-up comedian, Norm Macdonald, suffering secretly from cancer the past nine years, died recently. He was 61. MacDonald was a bit of a spiritual enigma, claiming to be a Christian, but not a particularly good or practicing one.

As Terry Mattingly wrote in the September 25th Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Macdonald “was laced with paradoxes — an edgy, courageous comic who often seemed unconcerned if his work pleased the public or his employers. Nevertheless, superstars such as David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, Bob Newhart and others hailed him as a deadpan comic genius, and mourned his passing.”

Though his eternal destiny is in the hands of the Lord, while he was with us, he had no tolerance for the all-too-common practice among entertainers of mocking Christianity.

“I think if you’re going to take on an entire religion, you should maybe know what you’re talking about,” said Macdonald. The comedian was fearless.  “I’m a Christian,” Macdonald once said to Larry King. “It’s not stylish to say that now.”

The always probing King then asked, “Are you devout? … You believe in the Lord?”

“Yes, I do,” Macdonald said.

If he did, we know his destiny. DC
