Behold the contortion of justice

A man creates a lie about election fraud in plain sight, whips up an insurrection in plain sight in pursuit of staying in office after losing the election, goes to court 60 times and fails to convince a single judge that American elections are rigged and he is not charged with a crime two years later. This same man walks off with classified documents and insists they are his, lies through his lawyers that he has conducted a diligent search to ensure that he has surrendered all government property, and is found to have yet more, and eighteen months later he is not charged with a crime.  Another man mishandles classified government documents and is indicted and remanded in custody within weeks of the investigation, and that is about one month after the documents appeared online.   I have yet to be convinced that American justice is any more equally applied than the court that found Jesus of Nazareth guilty of blasphemy.  Perhaps people are waiting to see manifest frauds like McConnell, McCarthy, and Graham, Gaetz, Boebert, Green and Jordan confess that the GOP is a death cult, firmly in the grip of legal loopholes and idle patriotism.

Equal Justice, Rare but Still Precious

People with pure minds and unsoiled hands

It is not the great constitutions and common law conventions that define a society.  People with books, supposedly chock-full of divine, and therefore, superior wisdom and guidance, are the most prone to atrocious practices, and history will confirm the fact. Let us not think that people in China, Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Venezuela, Mexico do not recognize the massive failures of two Booked people, the Muslim and the Jew.  The more observant one becomes in either of these two traditions, the more unlikely is any kind of peace, truce or  detente between the communities.

The hounds of mifepristone and women

Justices Alito and Thomas write dissenting opinions to the Texas judge’s ruling against a drug serving women’s health because they are the most unapologetically MAGA-minded justices, and Thomas for sure, is the most bribe-compromised.  The other seven keep their opinions secret because it is too embarrassing to be seen questioning scientific research or they may be afraid (!) of the MAGA mob. Views such as these held by justices of the Supreme Court are not as contorted as the views of Christians who see the cross (✝️) and can only bring themselves to talk about the pain that Christ endured.  All the talk that focuses on the passion as if it was an instance of injustice misses the mark by a thousand light years.  God’s justice, His show of righteous is not acceptable to self-righteous and brainwashed believers.  Believers who say they are saved and owe God something in recognition of his incomparable gift are bribe-compromised and filthy dreamers.  God’s gift of salvation via the cross has no “buts”

Never grasping the meaning of FREE and RIGHTEOUSNESS

It has not been more clear that what people call righteousness and what God offers as righteousness are two different animals.

“But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;”

Romans 3:21-25

HUMAN OBEDIENCE to God’s law is a joke, a childish game, a hit and miss routine, a try and try again shooting gallery, an ever-learning and never-graduate school.  None of those believers who are committed to keeping all of God’s law will accept their children’s repeating disobedience, yet they keep repeating the mantra of “keeping God’s commandments” without a line on Jesus who died and rose from the dead to bring them righteousness or justification.  Do they really believe that Christ justified sinners by not breaking any of God’s (Ten) Commandments, or did he justify people by dying and rising from the dead?
