Final comment to Mom of 4 and two supporters. No disrespect intended. And the best defense against slander is the truth. Calvin denied free will because he intellectualized it away and did not tolerate those who disagreed - the Puritans were not jolly folks. Luther wanted to impose his view of what is right on the Pope and the Catholic Church - he even rewrote the Bible to conform to his interpretation. These were very strong willed men and approached their theology that way - unlike say Kiierkegaard. And you do know that Georgetown University is a Catholic school right? That was a play at irony given current affairs.

Luther rebelled against the perceived apostasy of the mother church in the worldliness of it's representatives. He argued that the church of his era had abandoned it's mission as messengers of it's god in favor of worldly wealth and power, an argument that continues today throughout the Christian world.

Dear Comrade Eric,

No, I’m not confused. I think perhaps you don’t understand how tax law actually operates in real life.

Even assuming that the Buffett rule raises taxes on capital gains, there are easy ways for rich people to avoid paying capital gains taxes.

Unlike income taxes, a person can choose...
