It is Maine, next door, about 35-miles away as the crow flies, that is famous for its abundant extravagance of Lupines. But, we have some small patches too — like this, off Route 11, in New Durham. My pictures don’t do them justice. It was raining, dark & misty. So, the colors are washed out. But, I am sure you can appreciate what a sight they are. Enjoy.
Archbishop Viganò’s Praise For Trump Does Not Have The Backing Of Church, Pope Or Even Most Bishops!
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò (79) has been in RETIREMENT since January 2016. He is NOT a cardinal & he is no longer a part of the Vatican bureaucracy.
Actually he is an OUTCAST as far as the Pope & the mainline Church is concerned. A pariah. A gadfly.
He has no standing or say in what the Vatican says, thinks or does. I know that I have more standing at the Vatican than does he — & I am a confirmed, born-again HEATHEN!
So, an endorsement from Viganò is pretty meaningless. It could even be a negative. An impediment.
Trump, obviously, has no clue about the Catholic Church, its workings & its sacrosanct politics. If he did he would have ignored anything that Viganò said.
Yes Winston Churchill Was A Racist, BUT He Was Nice, Educated & Reasonable Racist — & That Makes All The Difference.
This is NOT new or shocking.
But, Winston was the product of a very different era. He was born in 1874. Different values. The World map was different & very reddish pink (as in OUR British Empire).
Winston was a decent man. A very decent man.
That he had some racist tendencies does NOT detract from his greatness or legacy.
