Worst Quote of the Week – October 18, 2019

“Get over it.  There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy.”

Mick Mulvaney, Acting White House Chief of Staff, admitting Faux-President Trump expected concessions from Ukraine in exchange for financial aid

I’m starting to realize it’s actually possible Trump’s own staff will make the impeachment inquiry proceed more quickly, as the rest of us watch in shock and awe.

Best Quote of the Week – October 18, 2019

“There is a conflict between the politics of Jesus and the politics of Trump. Racial bigotry is a deal breaker for the Gospel. White nationalism, which Donald Trump embraces and champions, isn’t just racist — it’s anti-Christ. Dehumanizing immigrants isn’t just racist — it’s anti-Christ.  Demeaning women isn’t just sexist — it’s anti-Christ. At some point, Christians have to ask themselves: Are the teachings of Christ going to be followed or not?”

Rev. Jim Wallis, founder of “Sojourners” magazine and Sojourners Community

Worst Quote of the Week – October 11, 2019

“Contraception is seen as harming the gifts God gave us.  You can’t put in physical barriers like condoms or chemical substances that are going to obstruct the natural design of the ovaries.”

– Theresa Notare, assistant director of the Natural Family Planning Program at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, after the Christian-themed Obria Medical Clinics received $1.7 million in federal funding to promote its abstinence-only family planning policy.

With a global population fast approaching 8 billion, I actually see the idea of contraception as humanity’s gift to itself.  And the fewer devoutly religious people we have in our midst, the better!

Worst Quote of the Week – October 4, 2019

“I would think that if they were honest about it, they’d start a major investigation into the Bidens.  It’s a very simple answer. They should investigate the Bidens because how does a company that’s newly-formed and all these companies, if you look at – and by the way, likewise, China should start an investigation into the Bidens.  Because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with – uh – with Ukraine.”

– Faux President Donald Trump, in response to a reporter’s question about the Ukraine and former Vice-President Joe Biden.
