"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

IT'S NOT ABOUT RACE!!!!!!

Yeah, this is not gonna get old anytime soon.

Josh Marshall was deeply moved by Jim Acosta's report that Trump called some African countries "shithole countries" whose people are not worthy to even travel to America.  But even JMM never writes the words "racist" or "racism."

This is America.  It's not about race, because it's never about race.  (I am indebted to RawStory for the tweets that follow):

We begin with CNN's version of "Some people say:"
Dear Mr. Acosta:  what was your first clue?

Trump is not racist but his views are racist.  See?  Big difference!
Don't say it!  Don't say it!! OBJECTIVITY!!!!!!
REPORT THE CONTROVERSY!!!!!!!
AND FOR PITY'S SAKE THINK OF THE WHITE VOTERS!
God Bless America!
