Holy what the eff?
Glenn Beck announced that he's (supposedly) going blind the other day, and now this? Is there some kind of a reverse-Saul thing currently in vogue with the conservative/religious culture warriors? What can this mean?
I personally have little faith that intercessory prayer will do much to restore Warren's sight. But I do hope that medical science can maybe get something done. Put an end to the pain, at least.
Man, this really sucks. I don't care what your politics are normally; when it comes to excruciatingly painful toxic poison blindness, we're all in the opposition party. If I could, I would definitely filibuster toxic chemicals in the eyeball.

Update: Thanks to Jeff and the mysteriously named Name in the comments for following up on this. Turns out the "toxic poison" that burned a hole through Rick Warren's skull was in fact some kind of plant sap that irritated his eyes into a state of temporary blindness…
Warren's spokesman Larry Ross said the sap of a firestick plant got into Warren's eyes when he wiped his brow while gardening. The sap can cause temporary blindness, although Ross said Warren can see…
He is expected to make a full recovery.
It's a miracle! You see? Prayer truly does work!
