"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

"Galaxy-brained" is the tell....

In other words:

(Let us note Aaron never addresses the substance of Silver's argument, just asserts a superior moral posture, usually identified as "holier-than-thou.")

I will carry this on a bit, because no horse is dead until I stop beating it:
One could, after all, recall all the people who "did the right thing" by refusing to vote for Clinton on 2016. Things are always more complicated than you want them to be.

(And the REAL issue is not defeating Trump, (the nominee has that job), but holding at least one house of Congress. GOP retirements don't mean automatic Dem pickups. Besides, Clinton's impeachment didn't hurt him, despite his lies, and Scott Walker's recall rendered him invisible and bulletproof. So Nate has a point.  Again: more complicated than you want it to be.)
