Quotation of the Day


A
nd the notion that American Christians, living on land stolen from others, buying cheap goods made by underpaid workers, buying gas which is connected to our support for the oppressive regime in Saudi Arabia, suddenly become complicit in evil when they bake cakes for a wedding that is not in line with their beliefs, is reprehensible nonsense.—James F. McGrath

The notion that pacifist conscientious-objectors, growing up on land won with bloody wars, eating bananas made on western-controlled plantations, buying gas from worldwide wells scrupulously contested by the U.S. Army & Navy, suddenly become complicit when they pull the trigger, is not in line with their beliefs, and is reprehensible nonsense.

The notion that unionized Public–School Teachers, getting salary & benefits from the state coffers, driving to work on state-paved roads, heeding state-approved standards on every other day of the year, suddenly become complicit, when they cross the picket line, is not in line with their beliefs, and is reprehensible nonsense.

The notion that a WASP state-trooper, growing up in the Deep South, enjoying white privelege, using white-only bathrooms, buying from white-only lunch counters, suddenly becomes complicit when he beats a black man over the head with a bobby stick, is not in line with his beliefs and is reprehensible nonsense.
