"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

We seem to have lost our signal.....


Elsewhere in Texas, sanity rears its head:

"I have serious concerns about the far-reaching implications of this blanket protection for officials who may chose to ignore the law based on their personal religious beliefs," [Texas state Sen. Rodney] Ellis wrote to [U.S. Attorney General Loretta] Lynch. "Will judges be able to argue that they should not recognize or authorize divorces if it offends their religious sensibilities? Could a judge refuse to send a defendant to the death penalty under his or her belief that 'thou shalt not kill' means just that?"

No word yet on whether or not Sen. Ted Cruz thinks there's any "religious backing" for that.

Stay tuned.....
