Political convictions have no template in the doctrine of Christ. Let us try telling the courts to forgive trespassers or the financial waymakers that a jubilee is overdue or tell the media and police services that lying lips are an abomination. We should mind our own business, and that is, without dispute, loving people and relieving suffering. We must let the Risen Christ subject his enemies. Otherwise we keep shooting ourselves in the foot.

Intellectuals without heads and discussion without opinion are the new standard of excellence in the shadows and at high noon at at the Capitol.
