"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

Can They Walk and Chew Gum?

The Houston metropolitan area is one of the most ethnically diverse in the country. Just north of Houston, in Humble, Ted Cruz warned that Beto O'Rourke wouldn't bring tofu to Texas. I could take the Senator to several places near my house that would serve or sell him some. Just south of Houston is Fort Bend County, which is 20% Asian, many of them Hindu. That was the local GOP's idea of outreach.

I'm trying to imagine using this famous picture of Jesus as if he were canvassing for votes.  Or a picture of a manger with the caption: "What Jesus wants for Christmas is a GOP majority."

Yeah, it's about that clumsy.  You gotta ask yourself: how do these guys keep winning?
