"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

Using my phone I have given up trying to have clickable links, but you can copy and paste if your interested. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/03/09/us/blacks-evangelical-churches.html?referer= A look at black attendance at majority white Evangelical churches since the Trump election. It never addresses the issue of the separation of church and state, but I have always thought religion was more at risk from a lack of separation than government. The want for power would warp in ways faith. What jumped out to me was not only the strong support of white Evangelicals for Trump, put the view of Trump as almost a Messianic figure. That was new for me. There is a lot to chew on here. As you remind us, none of this is new, see MLK's Letter from Birmingham Jail.

I was thinking more of Biggus Dickus, but Randy Newman works, too.
