Truth telling is a rigorous spiritual practice.”
— Lama Surya Das
If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Republicans like Sen. Mitch McConnell are always and forever strict about upholding the United States Constitution–except when they aren’t.
Above is the 1986 letter from Coretta Scott King that Sen. Elizabeth Warren was in the process of reading on the United States Senate floor yesterday when Mitch McConnell did an unbelievable full-frontal assault on her constitutional right to speak.
McConnell and his conservative colleagues who joined in the censorship should be ashamed of themselves.
But then, the truth is that they have demonstrated time and again that they have no shame when it comes to cherry-picking the United States Constitution to suit their far-right agenda.
The only part of the United States Constitution they are committed to upholding is the Second Amendment, which they consider more Holy than the Ark of the Covenant.
God help us in the pursuit of your Truth and your truths.
