"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

August is the longest month....

Courtesy of TPM, we have this from Byron York:

In 1985, Barack Obama had just arrived in Chicago for his new job as a community organizer when he headed to Smitty’s Barbershop, a tiny storefront on the South Side. As Smitty cut his hair, Obama listened to the men in the shop talk politics and racial grievance. When the barber finished, he handed Obama a mirror and said, “Haircut’s ten dollars. What’s your name, anyway?”


“Barack, huh,” Smitty responded. “You a Muslim?”
And this, about 13 ways of looking like a Muslim. It's a slideshow. It's worth it. Because Byron York, Chief Political Correspondent for the Washington Examiner, is right: it's Barack Obama's fault people think he's a Muslim.

Shoulda stuck with "Barry."
