On Donald Trump

On Donald Trump

To the Editor, Donald Trump loves everybody.….until someone criticizes or disagrees with him. Then he is not one to reflect on criticism. Instead, as we have seen, he becomes extremely vindictive and, with great relish, sets out to destroy that person. This would be a frightening tendency if possessed by a person able to exercise the powers of the U.S. presidency. I believe it would be irresponsible to give Donald Trump those powers.

Presidential Politics and the American Soul

Presidential Politics and the American Soul

By Robert C Koehler When I want to believe that America is a democracy — indeed, to feel so deeply this is so that my soul trembles — I turn to Martin Luther King, who gave his life for it. He cried out for something so much more than a process: a game of winners and losers. He reached for humanity’s deepest yearning, for the connectedness of all people, for transcendence past hatred and the demonization of “the other.” He spoke — half a century ago — the words that ...
