(“There are no atheists in foxholes,” runs the old soldier’s saying. But just harboring a belief in God is often insufficient. For some conceptions of God omit one or more of His critical attributes...for example, His willingness to forgive.)
Aaron Teitelbaum had the coldest smile Father Raymond Altomare had ever seen.
The lawyer was dressed in the height of Manhattan Legal style: a pinstriped three-piece navy blue suit, black Oxfords so brilliantly polished they seemed to outshine the conference room lights, and inconspicuous but quite impressive diamond-studded cufflinks. His glove-leather briefcase looked as if it had never been in contact with baser matter. The gold fountain pen and memo book he pulled from his inner jacket pocket were equally pristine. From the moment he’d walked into Ray’s room at St. Gregory’s rectory, Teitelbaum’s smile had never wavered, but his eyes were fish flat and icy cold, and they never left Ray’s face.
