It’s been quite a week for news…
Britain’s Political Chaos Shows Everything Is Okay. Last week, my friend Kathy, who grew up in a country with an actual written constitution, was arguing about how dangerous Boris was because by changing precedent he was changing the Constitution. I was arguing that Parliament wouldn’t stand for it and that overall we come right. What I did point out (and the next day on the radio, Peter Hennessy made the same point) was that all politics was dependent on people acting honourably. In the US, we are seeing that even with a fixed constitution, it breaks down when the President and the Senate are run without essential morals. In the UK, we are seeing the same but unlike Trump, Johnson has hit the limits of his power much more quickly.
Inter fans tell Romelu Lukaku monkey chants in Italy are not racist. What a load of complete and utter trash. Black players have been telling you it’s racist for years, UEFA have been saying the same (but probably much!). It’s racist
Why People Hate Religion. This is what I know, I am a human being that did not create the universe that I believe that God created. So this is what I know, I follow a man who was also the Son of God and He I should leave judgement to God. So I will follow God as my conscience dictates and I’ll love my fellow humans as God says I should. And I’ll leave the judgement to God and to do anything else is blasphemy. And isn’t this the truth:
Faith is not that complicated. Religion always is.
