The Beatitudes v. the Platitudes

Where Christians have the Beatitudes, progressives have platitudes. As the scheduled House “Impeachment Inquiries” wrap up I wonder which will serve their constituents better; we begin with the platitudes…

‘What it is is’ turns out to be, as the President has noted several times,

a witch hunt. But it’s not quite ‘the end of the day’ yet; now it’s our turn.

And remember: we’re the armed ones

For our side’s rebuttal I’d like to expand the Dem’s list of vapid platitudes to include one of their own favorites:nobody is above the law,’ as well as one that seems pertinent but may already be too late to heed: don’t play with fire if you don’t want to get burned.’

So far I’m giving the contest to the Beatitudes, specifically #9: Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
