"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

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

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

In Memory of Coretta Scott King

I'm sure there's more to know about this, especially about Rev. Lowery's sermon, but at this point I'm wondering, "What part did Bush pere et fil object to?" And why?

The Rev. Joseph Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King Jr., took a more direct jab at Bush's foreign and domestic policies, drawing head shakes from Bush and his father as they sat behind the pulpit.

"For war, billions more, but no more for the poor," Lowery said, in a take-off of a lyric from Stevie Wonder's song "A Time to Love," which drew a roaring standing ovation.
