FORT WORTH, TX—Local Christian man Brian Lawrence gets up in the morning and does his daily devotionals on Facebook, Twitter, and his favorite news sites. This time of reading and meditation can go on for hours as he reads more and more about the bleak state of the country and the world.
He's also incredibly anxious and depressed and is not sure why.
"I wish God had given us some eternal words of truth that could comfort me and call me to behold the good and the beautiful instead of the depressing and the stupid," he lamented as he refreshed Facebook again, his phone dinging to notify him about yet another dumb thing some dumb politician said. "Ugh, here we go again. On to the next dumb thing."
Lawrence has recently discovered political podcasts, which he hopes will help with the depression and stuff.
