At Salt & Light, Fr. Tom Rosica, CSB, explains that the book "Building a Bridge: How tha Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion and Sensitivity," by Fr. Jim Martin, S.J., coheres with his own pastoral experience. Good things happen when people abandon Manichaean dualism! Expect Fr. Rosica to be attacked by a broadside from the right field bleachers!

At Politico, The John Birch Society is back. True enough, but where are the principled conservatives like Bill Buckley who will drum such ideas out of the conservative movement?

At the Washington Post, another example of what is at stake in the health care debate: rural areas could lose their health care.

Politico reports on the identity of an eighth person at the meeting last year at Trump Tower, Irakly "Ike" Kaveladze, who apparently has a history of alleged money laundering, But, I have found an even bigger scoop, a video of the now infamous meeting with Trump Jr.
