Keep Calm and Tell the Truth.

Saturday, March 7th, 2020

Lies, not the truth, cause mass panic and paranoia. If the Chinese Communists had been open to the truth, the world would be a better place. At first, it tried to punish the dissenters. Only reluctantly did it decide to face reality. Dissent created the Modern World. Martin Luther, Copernicus, Voltaire, Wollstonecraft, Darwin, Plessy, Carson, […]

All Means All

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

Let me repeat everything Jesus said about gays and lesbians. “____________________________” Nope. Nada. Hating gays and lesbians is not part of Christianity. Go back and read the Gospels. Love all. Care for all. All means all. “‘Not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized’: Franklin Graham blasts Buttigieg for being gay “

Abuse is about power and cruelty.

Monday, February 11th, 2019

Abuse is not caused by celebacy. Abuse is not caused by sexual orientation.Abuse is not caused by theology. Abuse is about power and cruelty. As along as we allow people with power easy access to victims, abuse will continue. Stopping abuse requires immediate reporting, credible investigations and certain punishments.

Allegation Credible

Friday, February 1st, 2019

I lost a friend today. Not to death, but to a credible allegation. As his friend, I hold out hope it remains an allegation. Allegation means there is no proof. As a Catholic, I know the “credible” part requires the Church to take preventive action. “Credible” means that it is possible to be true. I’ve […]

Bill Moyers introduced Dr. Joseph Campbell to the “general public” in the 1988 PBS series the Power of Myth. Campbell dazzled the audience with exotic mythological tales as well as the fundamental similarities among the world’s seemingly diverse traditions. The interviews revealed Campbell’s’s life-long quest to understand the human experience. He is most famous for […]

Fascism Builds Brick by Brick

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

This is how fascism builds. Brick by Brick. Lies about foreigners taking over your country. Lies about how we need more control. Fake solutions to fake problems. Crowds cheering for fake solutions to problems. Demagogues burned down democracy. “You know if you go out and you want to buy groceries you need a picture on […]

“You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.”

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Pretty clear isn’t it? “You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 22:21 How did this get warped into “Separate their families and throw the children in prison.” Greed and cruelty. Thank Ayn Rand. Thank You Milton Friedman. Thank you Frederick Hayek. You taught […]

My Brother’s Keeper

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

If you have to ask, you probably already know the answer.  When Cain asked God, “Am I my brother’s keeper?,” he knew the answer.  He knew his jealousy was wrong.  Cain simply wanted more at the expense of his brother.  This is a cautionary tale.  Hurting others to get more often leaves us with less.
