“When evangelicals can speak on behalf of unborn babies, can speak on behalf of law and order when it comes to White people and White property, but are silent when it comes to banners that proclaim ‘Black lives matter,’ the moral silence is stupefying. We’ve gone from having to say ‘Black lives matter’ to now having to say ‘Black churches matter.’”

– President Donald Trump., at Tuesday night’s presidential debate, when asked by debate moderator Chris Wallace to disavow White supremacy.
Wallace asked if Trump would urge White supremacist groups that incited violence at nationwide protests to “stand down.” Trump said to “give me a name” when asked to denounce a specific group, and former Vice-President Joe Biden called out the Proud Boys – a violent hate group that believes, among many things, that women are subject to men and that Hitler didn’t kill enough Jews. Ironically, the group is led by a dark-skinned Hispanic man.

“I confess that when I hear some speeches by someone responsible for public order or a government, I am reminded of Hitler’s speeches in 1934 and 1936. They are typical actions of Nazism which with its persecutions of Jews, gypsies, people of homosexual orientation, represent a negative model ‘par excellence’ of a throwaway culture and a culture of hate. That’s what they did then and today these things are resurfacing.
– Pope Francis, expressing concern about modern language he’s heard targeting Jews and the LGBTQ community.
