"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

"This Is Fine"

Rudy Giuliani says "Nothing to see here, accepting intelligence from Russia" is fine.

“Americans should be very worried about that language. It means it’s open season to interfere in the American election,” Alksne replied and then dropped a brutal attack on Giuliani’s integrity that left Jackson stunned.

“Whatever was left of Rudy Giuliani’s reputation has now just swirled down the last bit of the drain. That’s just a shocking thing for a law enforcement person to say,” Alksne said. “He had a great reputation as a law enforcement officer, and now he’s just a pathetic excuse for a shill.”

“I don’t know where to go on that piece as you vividly put it,” a wide-eyed Jackson said, as Alksne muttered that Rudy’s spiral was “so depressing.”

“There are those who would say Giuliani is doing what his job is which is get out there and defend his client,” Jackson said, but Alksne cut her off.

“His job is not to be a lawyer, I can tell you that,” she said. “No lawyer would say such a thing.”
From "America's Mayor" to "pathetic excuse for a shill."  Quite a trajectory; and it took some effort to pull it off.
