Dear Marvin:

I am a pastor of a church in Massachusetts and have a Saturday evening ritual that has helped inspire many a sermon. A fine cigar is enjoyed as I struggle with the scripture and seek to bring a message of hope and new life to the congregation. I have known the pleasure, physically and spiritually, of cigar smoking for over ten years and would like to commend you upon a job well done on your publication. The demands and expectations of a minister can be overwhelming, and there is nothing like a quiet and smooth cigar to bring me to a peaceful place.

I am careful not to smoke in front of children, and when it is offensive to someone. But the benefits of a Saturday night cigar far outweigh the detriments. In moderation, ten a week or so, cigar smoking, I declare, is not a sin.

Gentlemen, you have my blessings. Those who do like the art and transcendental experience of smoking a fine cigar need not worry of divine retribution. I think God understands.

Gratefully and respectfully,

An inspired preacher from Massachusetts

Editor's Response: Amen.
