"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

This is certainly what church is for....

In light of the news about the executive order Trump just signed regarding "religious freedom" (it was neither very liberating, nor very religious, and was also more a squib than an explosive; but don't take my word for it), I pass you on directly to this editorial in the Dallas Morning News.  I won't even quote from it.  I urge you to read it in its entirety.  It is a fine lesson in the idea that:  "Religion is responsibility, or it is nothing at all."  Or, in more religious terms:  "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
