Homily: The Superbowl and the Stock Market (plus Tweets)

Most of the tweets in this post are from yesterday or the day before. So at this stage I just need to get this post out before they get any older.

21 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily – Partisanship Politics and Sexual Abuse

I wasn’t sure what to write for my homily today, then I switched on Fox News’s ‘The Five’. The first segment was about Hillary Clinton declaring that Bill Clinton wouldn’t have been elected originally if Fox News had been around at the time. She may be right. That was the lead in to a “debate”* about Bill Clinton’s behaviour towards women. (* The Fox News... read more
