"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

It's not easy being Trump

Remember when?  (Trump being civil)

Sad News of the Day: 
“I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am,” Trump said. “You know people don’t understand. I went to an Ivy League college. I was a nice student, I did very well.”

“I’m a very intelligent person,” he continued. “I really believe, I think the press creates a different image of Donald Trump than the real person.”

Bill Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar.  I don't remember him reminding people of that while he was in office; or ever, for that matter.

Barack Obama was on Harvard Law Review.  He never brought that up while he was President.  He still doesn't.

Jimmy Carter negotiated a peace arrangement between Israel and Egypt that holds to this day.  I've never heard him bring that up unprompted.

This is a sad, small man we've put in charge of so much, and given so much responsibility.

He is the biggest idiot to have ever been made president but he has yet to outdo several of the worst for amoral depravity, let's hope he remains ignorant enough to not try to outdo them.

There's an argument to be made that he's too amoral to ever by morally depraved.

I'm not sure I'd make it, but his amorality bothers me more, so I raise the point as a point of interest.
