"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

You can blame the system...

Or you can blame the people who think that, without a cop at their elbow, they are free to do as they please.

You know, people with no concept of government at all. I served two such congregations; dominated by people who thought the institution was there for their convenience only. Churches can cease to exist; governments can't. The dangerous course we are on goes far beyond the actions and inactions of political parties. The more we think it is all about me, and thee only when you agree with me, the worse it is going to get.
