BOOK REVIEW: ‘Shortest Way Home’: The making of a presidential candidate

“There is no going back … This is the deepest lie of our recent national politics, the core falsehood encoded in “Make America Great Again.” Beneath the impossible promises—that coal alone will fuel our future, that a big wall can be built around our status quo, that climate change isn’t even real—is the deeper fantasy that time itself can be reversed, all losses restored, and thus no new ways of life required." --Mayor Pete Buttigieg

REVIEW: ‘Team of Vipers’ spills secrets, exacts vengeance on fellow members of King’s Court

Is it possible the professed love of God that so many tout these days is akin to a one-way street?

I found reading “Fear” to be especially painful. There were times I had to force myself to read more.

CONNECTIONS: Discrimination, time-honored American practice

Here’s the thing: we have always been prejudiced. What we are prejudiced against does change, but man’s disapproval of man (and equally woman) is omnipresent. The church has always been the arbiter, and the consequences of disapproval have been more severe than being denied a slice with pepperoni.
