“If you seek the removal of freedom from an opponent simply because they have offended you, you have crossed the line to stand alongside tyrants who imprison, torture and kill with exactly the same justification.” ~ J.K. Rowling, author of the "Harry Potter" series

There is one virtue in the City of God that would spark the engines of compassion and move people forward to lend their aid to all who are hurting, regardless of what tribe they come from. Ironically, it is the same virtue which would open people's eyes and hearts to the impact of centuries of slavery and institutionalized discrimination on today's black community, and the systemic barriers which still remain, achieving what the proponents of "white privilege" so ardently desire. ~ Ron Miller, "Of Poverty, Privilege and Politics"
An exchange in yesterday's Democratic Party presidential debate in Detroit, Michigan is generating a lot of social media buzz, if not attention from the mainstream press. In response to a question from one of the moderators about what "racial blind spots" the candidates might possess, Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT), stated: When you are white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto, you don’t know what it’s like...

"As I write this, the Republican primary in my home state of Virginia is in the books, and Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul who has flipped the political establishment on its head with his improbable run for the presidency, has won. His performance on 'Super Tuesday' was not as dominating as perhaps Mr. Trump and his supporters had hoped, but it did make the path to the nomination much more difficult for his opponents.

It seems that now would be a good time to consider the long-term implications of this current political season, at least from my limited vantage point. Donald Trump's ascension marks the end, in my opinion, of several coalitions which have held sway over American politics and culture for decades." ~ Ron Miller, "The Reckoning"

I'm asking my Liberty University family, indeed the entire family of believers, to do what they can to help the families of this young couple close out their financial affairs in the wake of the tragic accident which took their lives. Kayla was a Liberty Flame, and she and her husband Daniel were on fire for the Lord even before they came together. May God bless the gift and the giver.
February 14, 2016, Valentines Day, unexpectedly turned into a tragic day for the Cosner and Amos families when the young newlywed couple, Kayla Amos (20) and Daniel Amos (21) both were severely injured and called home to the Lord after a fatal car crash. Sunday evening the young married couple...

I don't claim to be a seer, but as I survey the news today, much of what I wrote about two months ago is coming to pass.

"I have come to realize there is real tragedy in the lives of these people, who feel that the political elites in both parties have left them to die." ~ Ron Miller, "The Dilemma of 'Trumpsplaining'"

Let's see if we can cut through the politics to learn more about the people behind the Trump phenomenon. Maybe we will rediscover our common humanity in the process. It's worth a shot.
Unlike many political observers, I have spent the bulk of this campaign season focused not on Donald Trump, the leading candidate for the Republican Party nomination for president, but on the people who are supporting him, seeking to understand what is motivating them to essentially turn the political establishment, especially the Republican Party, on its head.

"When people in a society cannot even accept that some things are really real, apart from how we feel about those things, what holds that society together? What can hold it together?

"We are disintegrating. Coming apart. Losing our hold on reality." ~ Rod Dreher

Do you believe that many of us, if not most of us, believe what we believe because of how we feel rather than what the facts tell us?
When a society believes that emotions define reality, what holds it together?

Is The Dream still alive? On the day we commemorate the birth of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, I reflect on the differing views of The Dream and how it can be achieved.
