Working in Bare Feet
If I could live again - I will travel light, If I could live again - I'll try to work bare feet at the beginning of spring till the end of autumn. Jorge Luis Borges, Instants

Pathway to Hate
Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Megachurch of Dallas Texas, commenting on the SCOTUS Marriage Equality decision.
What happened Friday was nothing short of an affront in the face of Almighty God. And how did our president respond? President Obama responded Friday night by bathing the White House, the people’s house, in colors that represent what the Bible calls degradation, depravity and sexual perversion.”
Jeffress also stated that he is “not going to be silenced by the liberal left, Barack Obama or the United States Supreme Court.”Jeffress and his fellow Christian extremists who claim to have direct access to God's ear on all matters follow a brand of Christianity far removed from Christ's message of love and forgiveness. Jeffress believes that any recognition of equality for people other than heterosexual, white Baptists like himself is just another sign that the End Times are at hand. Behind his broad smile lies a soul poisoned by prejudice.
[P]opular powers must be placed as a guard, a control, a balance, to the powers of the monarch and the priest, in every government, or else it would soon become.... a great and detestable system of fraud, violence, and usurpation.John Adams, A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law
