"When the throne of ultimacy is usurped by politics, religion and spirituality become agents of the state or the party. They become a god or objects of faith. This is communism and fascism—and I believe history will add to this list, Trumpism."

Democracy is beholden to the will of the people, not truth. It is up to the people to align their will with truth. But what standard of truth will be used? The Truth or a truth?

There can be no inalienable right to a gun because the vast majority of Earth's inhabitants predate the existence of firearms by thousands of years. The inalienable right is to defend one's life and property, and to this end, assault rifles and high capacity clips are not required.

"Donald Trump is usually hyperbolic and vicious when attacking someone. His condemnation of the alt-right, White Nationalists, neo-Nazis and Klansmen is so reserved and equivocal that it is impossible to discern which side he stands on, which is precisely the point. This is no accident. Trump has never to my knowledge beat around the bush when attacking someone. In fact, his attacks on his own Attorney General and most loyal surrogate, Jeff Sessions, were more pointed than his rebuke of the swastika-clad terrorists in Charlottesville. When juxtaposed to his sensational and absurd rhetoric regarding Islam and immigrants, it is hard to see either as anything but a dog-whistle to white nationalist xenophobes."

"Love sees life in everything. It recognizes the life that abides within every creature. Love is patient, kind, and endures all things, as anyone who has attended a wedding knows. Our knowledge, plans, and strategies will reach their wit’s end, but love never tires."
And the Greatest of These is Love.

Donald Trump backing out of the Paris Accord is the dumbest and most dangerous thing has done thus far.
