our affections are so misplaced

People love America way more than they love Jesus. If we celebrated the true meaning of Easter with the same fervor that we celebrate the 4th of July, we might be taking a step in the right direction.This is not to say that the 4th should not be celebrated - it certainly should - but we celebrate it with ridiculous excess and drunkenness instead of humility. Every 4th we should all make a renewed resolve to do something practical to spread democracy and freedom in the world - rather than drink 30 Bud Lights and blow shit up.

I saw a “gourmet” dog food shop in Chenal yesterday.

It makes me sick.

Congratulations, America. You’ve come a long way since 1776. We now have so little to worry about that we are making foie gras and feeding it to dogs.
