‘WHY LIBERALS LOSE’ – A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 14, 2018, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.


At the heart of American democracy is… (wait for it…) “heart!” One of America’s foremost 21st century liberal theologians, Dr. Rev. Thandeka, teaches that when liberal religion displaces emotion from the moral equation, a contradiction of moral reasoning diminishes the impact of the liberal voice in American public life. Mainstream churches and liberal politicians will continue to lose ground unless this contradiction is reconciled. The most well-reasoned, documented and articulated facts, figures and solutions will continue to fail to move people to change. Thandeka says, “Liberal moral reasoning does not parse the American heart.” At All Souls, reconciliation is at the heart of our work. Join me to explore solutions we strive to achieve in our liberal religious faith.

New Mexico cop shooting: suspect arrested in killing of Rio Rancho police officer – TomoNews

Views:3779|Rating:4.20|View Time:54Minutes|Likes:37|Dislikes:7
RIO RANCHO, NEW MEXICO — Police have arrested a person who they believe is connected to the shooting of an on-duty police officer Monday night in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

Shortly after 8 p.m., a Rio Rancho police officer pulled over a man and a woman in a 1999 Dodge Durango. The suspects fled and wound up in the parking lot of the Esther Bone Memorial Library according to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department.

Police say someone called out “officer shot” over the radio and witness described hearing four gunshots and seeing a man giving CPR to the officer and a woman was sitting on the curb next to them.

“There was four shots, just went pop, pop, pop, pop—four real quick shots. And I was looking that direction, you know right away… it’s like, where’s it coming from, and then I looked a little bit closer to me, and then that’s when I saw the actual person giving him CPR and some dude laying on the ground,” 15-year-old Elijah Ortiz Y Pino said to KOB-TV.

The officer was taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, the Rio Rancho Police Department confirmed early Tuesday morning.

Police have yet to release the name of the police officer, but said he was 49-years-old and a married father-of-five. He had been a police officer for four years and also an Air Force veteran.

No further details have been released and the Rio Rancho Police Department said this is the first time an officer has been shot and killed in the line of duty in the department’s history.

The Marana Police Department in Arizona has released dash cam video showing a cruiser ramming an armed suspect on February 19.

The suspect, Mario Valencia, was armed with a stolen rifle and had fired a shot in the air.

Dash cam video records a gunshot as the suspect is walking. He warns police: “Stand off, stand off, the gun is loaded.”

A second squad car driven by Michael Rapiejko then rams Valencia, sending him flipping into the air.

Valencia survived the impact and faces charges for sticking up a 7-Eleven, setting fire to a church, auto theft and breaking and entering.

Valencia allegedly stole the rifle and a box of .30-30 ammunition from WalMart, police said.

Las Vegas Reaches HUGE Energy Milestone

Las Vegas is doing it’s part to fight climate change. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Just last week, Las Vegas announced it has reached its goal of powering the city entirely with renewable energy, meeting a goal the city has been working toward for nearly a decade. The goal was reached with the launch of Boulder Solar 1, a 100-megawatt solar plant located just outside the city.

Las Vegas began its renewable energy project in 2008, reducing electricity usage through sustainability programs and installing solar panels on city buildings. Las Vegas will also receive power from Hoover Dam for the first time in its history, starting at the end of 2017.

The city has reduced its electricity usage by more than 30 percent due to these initiatives. Estimates place the city’s yearly energy savings at approximately $5 million.

Las Vegas is now the largest U.S. city to be powered entirely by renewable energy. The second largest city, Burlington, Vermont, achieved this status in 2014.”
