This powerful statement is engraved on the side of the Department of Justice Building in Washington, DC. It is always worth remembering, but especially in times when those in power are working so hard to undermine the precepts of a lawful society.
I fully support the fine men and women who have dedicated their careers and their lives to ensure our nation abides by the rule of law. The work of the Justice Department is critical to our freedom.
All those currently in power who are attempting to discredit and and undermine the efforts of the DOJ do so because they are afraid of the truth and fear justice being done. They neither believe in the supremacy of the law, or feel that the law applies to them.
They act as if they are above the law. Robert Mueller and the Justice Department will soon correct that very mistaken understanding.
I’ve spent the majority of my life working to end hunger. I know from personal experience that by working together we can change the world. It starts with speaking up for those who cannot be heard and standing up for those who cannot be seen.
Faulkner says it far better than I can. Read his quote again. But, achieving a world of peace and justice, a world where honesty, truth and compassion holds sway, is possible. We can achieve a world where caring trumps greed, lying, and hatred.
I want that world. Let’s stand up and speak out, and let us not be afraid to continue speaking out until we transform our world into a place where love truly trumps fear and hatred.
The Republican Tax Bill is another gigantic lie. Our president is desperate for a political win, and the Republicans in Congress refuse to demonstrate they have the morals to do anything but pay off their mega donors.
Liar-in-Chief, #BLOTUS, the Lying King, whatever he is called, the truth is that the man in the Offal Office is a pathological liar unfit to to do anything but run with the hyenas. He is actually afraid of the truth, and flees from it like vampires flee from sunlight.
If he wasn’t so dangerous it would be funny. But, the reality is this man is a true threat to democracy. It’s time for all citizens to realize what he is doing to destroy the values we have long lifted up to the world.
Not all Christian and faith leaders in Alabama support the immorality of Roy Moore. Like Dr. Barber, I stand with them and support their efforts to speak the truth about extremeism and blind party politics.
