"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

Wait, What?

During a half-hour news conference marking the end of the two-day G7 summit in nearby Taormina, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and chief economic adviser Gary Cohn said Trump had succeeded in all his goals for his inaugural foreign trip ― restore U.S. leadership, build relationships with other world leaders, and show unity among the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

What a lame-brained theme-plan for a presidential trip. Starting with the identity of the Saudi dictator as being the spokesman for the Islamic religion, Benjamin Netanyahu as one for Judaism and Pope Francis as the accepted authority of that type for Christianity. For a start, I wonder what Pope Francis would have to say about that.

H. R. McMaster has already proven himself to be a massive liar and flack for a fascist. It's no surprise he'd say that. I wonder which one told him to say it, Bannon or Kushner.
