"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

Love, Uncle Ruckus

I'd read about this but, until this morning, I hadn't seen it.  The blackface is getting all the attention, but once you get past that, read the t-shirt.

So it's offensive to as many people as possible.  But it's okay, the pastor (!) who posted this has apologized:

"It was not at all my intention to offer or to not offend anyone, the last thing I want to do is to offend people."

And we all know, it's now what you do, it's what you intend to do, that counts.

So nice to know we're in a post-racial America since Obama was elected, and that Uncle Ruckus was just a fictional character on the "Boondocks."
