Poverty Returns with Misguided Policy (tags)
The state should represent the public interest and yet private or special interests are in the driver's seat. Trump's proposed 2018 budget is a sledgehammer with cuts to Meals-on-Wheels, school lunches, WIC food assistance, National Institute for Health, EPA, PBS and Legal Services
This economy kills!: Pope Francis (tags)
The Cold War in internal church policy may be coming to an end. A religion without mysticism is merely a philosophy. Mysticism is a specifically modern form of faith. God's presence is no longer self-evident or plausible to the entire world. Francis' church is a hospital under the open air.
The Changing Spring (tags)
In the parables, the itinerant preacher Jesus meets us as an ingenious storyteller. He brings God near people. This is an entirely undogmatic way of speaking of God. Where speaking is impossible, one must tell stories. Parables focus on the earthly and point to the divine.
Happy Birthday, Agent Smith (tags)

Freedom: A Christological Contribution (tags)

Changing the course of history.. Remembering past victims and henchment can help us recognize the victims and henchment of today..Solidarity means bringing the crucified people down from the cross.
A "Few Bad Apples" or "The Bad Seed" of Circumstance? (tags)
Countless studies have shown that external factors are highly predictive of so-called "moral" behavior -- people are generally conformists, blind followers of authority and highly influenced by circumstance rather than character and values.
Iraq and The Good Samaritan (tags)
The question I would like to ask the entire would is, “If we do not stop to help the people of Iraq, what will happen to them?” What will happen to the tens of thousands of starving and dehydrated orphan children lying on the streets of Baghdad?

"KING, WHERE ARE YOUR PEOPLE NOW?" (tags)
Don't allow "Wolves in Sheep's clothing" to define the life and actions of Dr. Martin Luther King. The "I have a Dream" speech (1963)is King's weakest... yet it's the only one you'll hear quoted on radio and television.
