Fri., Dept. 18, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader-Ginsberg, died.  It was a great loss to us all.  The hypocritical Republican leadership, which held off Merrick Garland's confirmation hearing for over a year because it was too close to the 2016 election, now sees no problem with rushing through a nomination of another right-wing idealogue while we are in the midst of an election.

The article in Christianity Today urging Trump's removal from office on moral grounds: 
https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2019/december-web-only/trump-should-be-removed-from-office.html

For too long, Democrats have ceded Christianity to the Republican party.  The Republicans claim to be more Christian because they oppose abortion, approve of public funding for parochial schools, back Israel, and support "religious liberty"—to impose their beliefs on everyone.  Often this is about enforcing female chastity by making birth control harder to get, or pressuring school children via school prayer and the like.  But didn't Jesus urge welcoming the stranger, feeding the hungry, healing the sick, and giving to the poor?  Is imprisoning refugee children at the border and separating them from their parents Christian?  Is turning our backs on our own poor Christian?  Did not Jesus chase the money changers out of the temple, rather than embrace and cater to the rich at the expense of the poor?  We need to be asking these questions more.


 
The Lancet, among the world’s oldest and best-known medical journals, accuses President Trump in a new editorial of injecting partisan politics into his response to the coronavirus pandemic and suggests that a change is in order in the White House.

“Americans must put a president in the White House come January, 2021, who will understand that public health should not be guided by partisan politics,” the editorial says.

The publication, which has offices in London, New York and Beijing, criticizes the Trump administration’s “inconsistent and incoherent national response” to the coronavirus outbreak and accuses it of relegating the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to only a “nominal” role in the U.S. response.

“The Administration is obsessed with magic bullets — vaccines, new medicines, or a hope that the virus will simply disappear,” the editorial says. “But only a steadfast reliance on basic public health principles, like test, trace, and isolate, will see the emergency brought to an end, and this requires an effective national public health agency.”



Coronavirus--overseas travelers need to come home. 
Info from Sen. Sherrod Brown on help available to Americans stranded overseas.
We are advised to stay home as much as possible to avoid contagion.  More public places are closing.
