"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Raising Awareness of Raising Awareness

I was thinking this weekend that I never shop at Wal-Mart, as much because of the inconvenience as any personal or moral convictions. I haven't bought a new car in 15 years, so I'm doing absolutely nothing to support Detroit. Likewise, I haven't travelled by plane in almost a decade. I don't eat at McDonald's, or almost any chain restaurant (Applebee's, The Olive Garden, Chili's), yet these places seem to thrive without my attention to.

And I was going to say something about all that, about my importance in the grand scheme of things, or apparent lack thereof.

And then Greg Gutfeld beat me to it.
