The One Sin That God Will Not Forgive

Nikos Kazantzakis never met Kamala Harris

Screen grab from the movie Zorba The Greek. Michael Cocoyannis, director, 1964.

In Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis’s 1946 novel ‘Zorba The Greek’, the earthy protagonist instructs a clueless intellectual on how to respond to the sexual overtures of a lonely young widow.

“The one sin that God will not forgive,” Zorba insists, “Is when a woman calls a man to her bed and he will not go.”
