"Charity is commendable, everyone should be charitable. But Justice aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to be charitable, people still don't go hungry, unschooled or sick without care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal wealth, justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance.
Faith-based charity provides crumbs from the table; faith-based justice offers a place at the table"
~Bill Moyers

The New GOP: Guns, Gays, God, & Gohome!

SENT BY: Roberto Rodriguez


The New GOP: Guns, Gays, God, & Gohome!
By Roberto Dr. Cintli Rodriguez

As the Republican Party continues to be soundly rejected by the U.S.
electorate at the polls, some of its leaders have decided that the
Party of Lincoln needs an extreme makeover. Actually, they appear to
believe that the GOP simply needs to change its image, as opposed to
fundamentally changing the party itself.

Translated, this means that it has been determined by some GOPers that
its Guns, Gays & God message has to change. On the other hand, many
others seem to think the new message has to include: Gohome! Enter the
National Council for a New America (NCNA); its primary objective seems
to be to determine whether the party traditionally identified as in
touch with the rich and traditionally identified as a war party, will
also become a European-style anti-immigrant party. Leading the effort
of this council are oldies-but-goodies: Jeb Bush, John McCain, Mitt
Romney and Eric Cantor.
