"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

"What do you want us to say?"*

*An RNC member speaking anonymously about Trump's claims the election in November will be "rigged."

And the answer is:  "Maybe you could say to Trump:  "At long last sir, have you no shame?"  And add something about even the GOP doesn't want to win so badly they want a scurrilous and dangerous nut job like Trump at the top of their ticket.

And yeah, Trump is serious about this:

"Well, I’m looking at all of these decisions coming on down from the standpoint of identification, voter ID. And I’m saying, ‘What do you mean, you don’t have to have voter ID to now go in and vote?’ And it’s a little bit scary, and I’ve heard a lot of bad things," Trump told Fox News' Bill O’Reilly when asked why he's concerned the election will be rigged. “I mean, people are going to walk in, they are going to vote 10 times maybe. Who knows?"
Which isn't that far from what Roger Stone said about Karl Rove's infamous 2012 meltdown on FoxNews:

“The reason he was so certain is because it was bought and paid for. He knew the fix was supposed to be in. Therefore I can only conclude that sometimes things don’t stay bought, and perhaps Obama came in with a better offer,” Stone said.

That's what Stone just told Breitbart, not something he said four years ago.

Maybe the GOP needs to be something other than silent on this issue.
