"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

Just because he's my Senator

Not a photo of Ted Cruz.  Not even close.

Charlie Pierce says the story of Ted Cruz as a clerk to William Rehnquist makes Cruz look creepy.

To my mind, this is even worse:

Cruz’s Michigan state director Wendy Lynn Day announced this week that the campaign had coordinated with anti-abortion group Flint Right to Life to collect water bottles to be distributed only to crisis pregnancy centers in the area. The water is for “expecting moms and moms of little ones,” Day wrote in a Facebook post soliciting donations.

You know, there are people who deserve our charity, and people who don't.  Amirite?

Here, by the way, is the text of the Facebook post:

We have been working with Flint Right to Life since Friday to find out how best to help Flint.

This Wednesday volunteers from the Ted Cruz campaign and from Livingston county will be delivering water to Crisis Pregnancy Centers in Flint to give to expecting moms and moms of little ones. If you want to help, please let me know. ❤

They really do see this as the best way to "help Flint."

Mr. Pierce is right; these really are the mole people.

Why not fully live out the courage of their convictions and just DENY water to women who've had abortions or to anyone who has sinned in their eyes, for that matter? Cowards.
