"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

The love that dare not speak its name

Do I look crazy to you?

The question about the Navy Yard shootings has already settled on:  "How did this man keep his security clearance?"

The logical root question, "How in a civilized country did this man so easily get his hands on this weapon and fifty rounds to load it?":

is the question we dare not ask.  Because the only acceptable the question is:  why didn't the Navy make him take his crazy somewhere else?  Or at least make him start shooting at the gate?

Because everyone has a Constitutional right to one of those.  They just don't have a Constitutional right to use it as they see fit.

Isn't Constitutional law comforting?
