"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

"Ein volk, ein reich, ein yam"

I'm tired of being subtle....

Courtesy (again) of Charlie Pierce, the words of Donald Trump today:

We will protect those who protect us. And we will follow your example of unity—working in common purpose and common cause. We will be one people, under one God, saluting one American flag.
I'm thinking somewhere in there is a swing at Colin Kaepernick.  But it sure puts that use of the word "deplorables" in context, doesn't it?  Because those of us who follow Colin's example, or who don't think we are under one God, and would rather not salute one American flag (we have another?), are apparently going to be pushed aside.

Yeah, but the problem is what Hillary said.

People protesting Colin Kaepernick's exercise of his right not to stand for the national anthem are causing more people to protest by not standing for the national anthem. It's a funny old world.
