"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

Where's all the people?  Where's the visual evidence of a "humanitarian crisis"?  Does the President mean the people in McAllen?



I don't even see a picture of the promised human traffickers (who actually work in cities like Houston, one of the worst hit cities with this problem.  I don't diminish its reality at all; but Trump does.)
Um...
(actually heard a newly elected Texas GOP Representative aver that crime doesn't stay in McAllen but sweeps north to places like Dallas, part of which he now represents.  Because border crime is like that, ya know.)

So what's the emergency?
Still can't figure out what he saw.  Maybe he visited those cages full of children?  “As the Most Rev. Daniel E. Flores, bishop of our diocese, says, ‘We must put human dignity first."  Maybe that's what he thinks is the "crisis."
