"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

Res Ipsa Loquitor

To the post immediately below, more information:

Elon Musk and Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, withdrew from this Council in June.  I can't find any evidence that Trump denounced them on Twitter for their very public actions.

Then again, Musk and Iger are white, and Ken Frazier is black.  And they didn't denounce "hatred, bigotry, and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all men [sic] are created equal."  Not that they had to, either.  But Mr. Frazier did, and that, or his race, or both, provoked the President's ire.

So many, many sides to this issue.....
