More calming photography.

Humpback whale, the northern horizon beyond, Husavik, Iceland.

I needed a couple days off, sorry guys. My week tends to be front-loaded (and sort of uneventful, most weeks), so I often find myself on Monday or Tuesday nights lying limply on the couch, thinking how little I care about the news of the day.

But of course I do. I’ve been absorbed by the news of the week, particularly the SCOTUS rulings, which are, like everything else, only more evidence of the great divide. To people like us, it’s pretty simple: You take a job as a pharmacist, you’re obligated to dispense the drugs people present prescriptions for. You’re not there to express your opinions about them, or otherwise interfere with a relationship between a customer/patient and the choices they or their doctors make. Your remarks should be confined to known contraindications and so forth, not your moral beliefs about them.

If you feel you need to say these things, choose another field.

Others? They don’t feel this way. Roy has the roundup. Read that, and you’ll feel better.

Also, the last few days here have been lovely. Monday was miserable hot, but a cool front blew in Tuesday and Wednesday? This:


It was pretty chilly at that hour, too — about 55 degrees. You stretch, you get in, you swim. In half a lap, all is well.

I plan to enjoy this summer.

Deborah, send me some current pix of your house project, and I’ll post them here. Along with more of my own, because I feel like if this weather keeps up, it’ll be a very photogenic summer.

    Your comment about opinionated pharmacists reminded me of a day at the VA clinic, just before the Isis shooting in San Berdoo. A nurse was nearly yelling, expressing fear at the spectre (in her own head) of the feds coming to violate her Second Amendment rights and seize her arsenal she had at home. Her listener from behind a room dividing partition, was calmly answering her but I could not hear that person. I just thought that also was a bad place to be yelling about Second Amendment right to bear arms (and kill any sumbitch who crosses me). .

    Hey Jeff Borden, how about your baseball team (where your heart is) winning 12 in a row, most in 65 years? The Cleveland Indians are firmly in first place, heading for that elusive World Series trophy, first since 1948.

    The pharmacy case was even about an individual pharmacist being forced to dispense Plan B against his will. This case was about owners of pharmacies wanting to not be required to carry Plan B. Since Hobby Lobby, it’s like a game of “how many levels of indirection can we push the RFRA?”

    Speaking of re ligious objections, I found out today that the Washington state supreme court will be hearing arguments in Ingersoll v. Arlene’s Flowers on Nov. 15. This is the florist that refused to provide flowers for the gay wedding. Washington has an anti-discrimination law that includes sexual orientation, and Arlene’s Flower’s lost on summary judgement but appealed to the supreme court. I’m hoping to go hear arguments in the case, though I think it unlikely that the court will overturn. Washington’s ADL is pretty clear, and this court is fairly liberal, though three of the justices are opposed this fall.

    For my money, Sam Alito is the worst Supreme Court pick of the last 20 years. He wants to push his conservative Catholic worldview to the country at large. Chief Justice Roberts should be ashamed to be siding with this dangerous lunatic on any dissent, but the Wash. pharmacist one is particularly lunatic. In what world is it right that a private business can force its religious beliefs down the throats of its customers? Oh, right, in the United States, thanks to Hobby Lobby. Here’s hoping the next Supreme Court throws out that ruling, along with Citizens United.

    From what I’ve read, Plan B does not end a pregnancy but stops that little old egg ever meeting up with any of those little old sperm. So, I don’t get the objection. If asperm does manage to reach the egg in spite of the drug, I think Plan B has no effect whatsoever. Am I mistaken? Any medical people out there?

    Plan B can work in one of three ways: it can delay ovulation, or completely inhibit it, meaning there won’t be an egg available. It also affects the lining of the uterus, preventing implantation of a fertilized egg. The last one is the argument the fundies use to argue against all use of emergency contraception, naturally.

    My fear is a Chicago Cubs vs. Cleveland Indians series. I’d have two dogs in that fight and it would be tough for me to choose. I’m a confirmed Chicagoan. . .this month marks 27 years of residency here. . .but my old love of the Tribe has never completely subsided.

    Baseball is especially important to me this year. The election insanity eats at me. . .even if tRump doesn’t do well this fall he still has unleashed some very ugly demons. . .but to watch or listen to a ballgame is to escape for a few hours into something affirming. The Cubs team is filled with solid young players and nary an asshole among them. The Indians don’t have the marquee names, but they are getting terrific pitching. It’s just a pleasure to watch both teams play.

We didn’t go to the parade in Columbus, so the only one I ever saw was 30 years ago when my brother and I exited the Steppenwolf Theater (Tom Waits’ “Frank’s Wild Years” tour)on Halsted and walked the three blocks “with ’em” to the parking lot. My brother who lived in “Da Region” for 45 years called me an “honorary Chicagoan” because I followed the city’s rhythms closely via the Trib and radio stations, so when Tom Waits came to town (twice), bet your ass I was gonna be there. That is all…I am fresh out of quotation marks.

  12. Jeff (the mild-mannered one) said on June 30, 2016 at 2:17 pm

    I struggle with my natural bias (genetic, caffeinated, who knows) towards optimism. There are plenty of reasons to be hopeful and encouraged in the world today — — and yes, that’s a source with roots in religion and libertarianism, but the data are from some pretty well respected, neutral sources.

    But I live in a county-seat area of a Midwestern county that’s been hit hard by post-industrialism and globalism . . . and I think I could, given some time and latitude, say in a way acceptable to all and sundry that modernism has not been kind to this area, either. The counter to that statement I’ll go ahead and make: Native American genocide and patriarchy and Klan influence, mixed in with mercantile industrialization has all been pretty unkind to anyone who hasn’t been a Northern European male with some skills and without handicaps. It does seem that the role of unions and guilds has been as puzzling here as anywhere else in the Rust Belt — about the time they helped the working man (if not the working woman) and lower-income Whites (if not other ethnics, of color or otherwise) to get up out of dirt-floor shacks and six-day weeks with early deaths to black lung and influenza, they were cast aside pretty readily by those they’d helped . . . even if the forces and combines of capitalism had been briskly busy in undermining the legitimacy of collective action and the right to strike for better working conditions.

    So maybe they all had it coming, and this current state of affairs is simply a collective coming home to roost of the proverbial chickens. And they’re now walking up the ramp to the abattoir, clucking away a Justin Bieber tune as they submit themselves to the axe and the gutting line of jobs sent into Mexico or overseas to Vietnam, which we know we didn’t beat, but we proved something there, didn’t we? At least it added a cohort to the Legion and the VFW after they got desperate enough for new members to let in soldiers from police actions, to pay for the bar tabs of the Greatest Generation.

    Most of whom are now in the largest, shiniest new buildings in the area, the nursing homes, I mean retirement centers, I mean lifestyle communities, where they and their muttered history is unhearingly tended to by semi-literate, loosely educated young people already looking at their smartphones for the meet-up after the shift ends. They make more than minimum, as most people with full-time jobs around here do, but between $15 an hour and a solid middle-class lifestyle is a gap that even most bachelor degrees can’t bridge. We have the Lord God Savior Amazon arriving soon out of the clouds, and a new tranche of picker positions (Starting at $12.50 an hour – benefits!), but the void between $30,000 pre-tax a year and a high deduc HC policy, and the $75-100,000 per year household income it takes to have the kind of home, vehicle, and vacation that was once the common lot of everyday, across-the-board families in this area is something that a B.A. in psychology or communications or sports management can’t vault.

    Living in one of the enclaves of stable career, two adults (marital status aside), home-owner lives, we don’t have a gated community, but you can feel the fences go up and the wristbands go on as you move from the shirtless streets of the urban center, past a verdant belt of parkway to the air conditioned outpost, backed up around a campus with a honkin’ endowment and staff pay to prove it. At social events, I’m a curiosity because unlike most around me, who either dash up the hill to work at the U. or make the commute to a high tower in the city just over the horizon, I wander regularly (three or four times a day, actually) over into the heart of our local darkness. As racial barriers shift and fade, the class markers and divisions get starker, darker. Bad teeth, old cars, broken phone screens. You can’t go by tattoos anymore, god knows, nor by distressed clothing, but there’s not just a kind of rip but there’s a smell in the air, a tinge to the teeth even if not missing, a certain Walmart quality to the garb that makes it clear you’re inside of the wire.

    In my church, we have a range of people from all over the county. I can’t take credit for it, they were this way when I got here, I just don’t want to mess it up. They still have farmers and union members, a few professionals and a lot of factory workers, private pilots and men (plus women) on probation. However you feel about God-bothering, as an archaeologist colleague of mine likes to tell me I’m doing, the interesting and worrisome thing for me as a pastor is that my patch is about the only place I see any interaction, any community, any conversations going on back and forth across differences. There are “community conversations” and scheduled events, some of which I attend and which often elicit only those already convinced, running the gamut from A to B on the issue to be discussed.

    Out in the pews at our congregation, we have people who worked hard, who appeared in national media for BOTH the Obama and Romney campaigns. I love that about our church, and am proud of that, even those I disagree with, because I can work and eat and sometimes talk to people I disagree with so often, with relative ease. In all that, I don’t see or hear more than a bare minimum in the Trump camp; the Trump train does not have a station on our property. The 80-something “peace through strength” veteran on his second wife, the quietly bitter waitress who wishes her children called more often, a retired couple who have kids working in law enforcement — there’s a few, but they couldn’t hardly constitute enough to make me take off a second mitten to count them.

    What there is out around our parish is a sincere and sorrowful sense that something in our county has come unstuck, and no one is working on putting the pieces together. Whether that’s “back” together, or making a new mosaic, I think they’re open either way, but the general question is “where’s this going?” Employment is flat, wages stagnant (mine haven’t gone up in five+ years), and what used to be benefits are either getting harder to hold onto, or suddenly covering less if they aren’t whipsawing you from one practice to another every year or two. More children in poverty as more kids grow up in single-parent homes, more men not even trying to pay child support and getting nasty if you even hint that they should, and attempts at suicide by cop are up to almost once a week, keeping the force on edge when they’re sent out on almost anything, but especially DV calls. Yeah, heroin is up, but it’s minuscule compared to alcoholism and weed-baked couch-surfing and steadily increasing obesity.

    I am quite certain that shaming people into marriage, guilting women into staying in abusive relationships, and promoting the glories of middle-class, middle-brow, mid-American kitchianism is not the answer. And I’m not of a mind, by my own inclinations nor those of my tradition (which I grew up in, so chicken/egg, who knows), to encourage a more upbeat mindset by preaching “we’ll understand it better in the sweet by-and-bye,” but there’s a lot on the streets around my church that has me thinking about how nice it would be to “fly away, O Lordy.” To heaven, to the Rapture, to Disney. Just get me out of here, Jesus, I’ve done my time.

    But I turn back to our congregation, living out an imperfect but noticeably counter-cultural version of the Beloved Community, and I think “just grow this.” Not to mega-church status — I’m incompetent to run such even if I were given one — but to keep the doors open, inviting more in, and sending out the faithful to see if we can run into Jesus out there, down the block, at the nursing home, around the Salvation Army tables. To “just grow this” that we’ve been given, a community that’s repented and is still repenting a 1920’s era flirtation with the Klan, and is still struggling with a tinge of nationalism that has the flags not up on the platform, but not out in the narthex yet, either; a gathering of people who give, even sacrificially some weeks, to put wells in Togo and bridges in Central Asia and rebuild homes in Moss Point MS and storm-slashed South Carolina, not to mention a whole bunch of house building with Habitat right here in town.

    Abortion worries me. I don’t preach against it, I don’t throw it out as an option in counseling and no one expects me to. Gay marriage neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg, in Jefferson’s fine phrase, but I’m not running around looking for weddings to do. One will come to me in time, I’m sure, and like most marriages proposed to me for solemnization, I’ll take the services one at a time and each on their own. How should we as churches and faith communities deal with the culture’s demands around us? I’d appreciate it if people didn’t insist I not only agree, but do so enthusiastically; I think some “protest too much” for a variety of personal reasons, but I’d like to give opt-outs on all sorts of issues, so I’m (as usual) on the fence about pharmacists or floral arrangers or cake bakers. I wrote a piece for the local paper about guns and why they should be regulated (see Amendment the Second, it’s there) and why people value owning them, and got roundly condemned by folks on each side.

    When that happens, it doesn’t mean I’m right, but it does give me a sense that I’m somewhere in the middle of the navigable channel, no matter how foggy the night. And I can’t stand Franklin Graham, if that helps, but I’m not sure I trust Elizabeth Warren more than I do Hillary Clinton. My liberal friends have been telling me for years, mostly to get a rise out of me and others, that the Clintons are really Republicans in Dem’s clothing . . . it’s ironic how much I’m finding myself feeling good about supporting Hillary this year. She seems to know something about the much-maligned middle-of-the-road herself. Look for me with the double yellow stripe up my backside, I guess.

We’re not a bellwether, but on this horserace, I’d bet cash money that if he can’t even pull off a bare 50% in my sanctuary, he’s nowhere near pulling off a win nationwide.

    Jeff(tmmo), I do not believe that the white working class “had it coming to them.” I believe in doing all we can to help them, along with everybody else. What I don’t believe in is pandering to them, in putting their needs and problems front and center, pretending that economics alone is the solution to the problems for everyone.

    I would also never ask you to counsel abortion if you don’t believe in it. I just ask that the law of our country not require women be forced to carry a pregnancy just because other people are worried about abortion. I would hope, that as someone who has never been pregnant and never can be pregnant, that you could keep an open mind about the situation a pregnant woman considering abortion might find herself in. I don’t insist that you agree on same sex marriage, nor do I insist that you perform such a marriage (that’s between you and your denomination and your God), but I would hope that you would recognize the dignity and humanity and love of a couple wishing to enter such a union.

    As for the florist, in the state of Washington, we as a community chose an ADL that said that public accommodations must treat people equally, regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, among others. The state supreme court will decide whether that law violates the constitutional rights of the florist. I think it’s easy to feel sympathy for the florist when you can identify better with her than with the person being shunned, but laws are about protecting the people we don’t identify with. The state grants the florist a business license; in exchange, the state says, you must do business with people whether you agree with them or not.

    There seems to be a little confusion about the Washington pharmacy case. SCOTUS refused to grant cert on the case, so the pharmacy lost; they can’t refuse to sell Plan B. An individual pharmacist can refuse to dispense it, as long as there is another pharmacist there who is willing to dispense it.

    We like in community; not all of us think alike, and no one is asking anyone to approve of anyone else’s choices. We do say that you don’t get to single out one particular group and refuse them if you are a public accommodation. At least not in Washington state, for now.

    So, you can’t do business without a business license, and if you have a business license, you must do business as the state says? This is getting over to where I’m vaguely uncomfortable. Mind you, I think it’s untrue that if you do flowers for a gay wedding, or bake a cake for a pair of idiots who happen to be male & female and want it in the shape of BonJovi’s head, you’re endorsing much of anything. And I’ve done same-sex unions, and said no (on two occasions out of some two hundred or so) to hetero couples who rapidly convinced me in the first pre-service meeting that they had no business sharing a home or DNA. One thanked me for the clarity and they moved on, the other couple angrily (they had no other gear, it seemed) left to find another clerical functionary to perform the rite on their behalf.

    More pointedly, Sherri, I didn’t say the white working class “had it coming to them,” but I think it’s perfectly fair to try to help them see how they set themselves up for this outcome. Just as, in preaching and teaching, I’m trying to offer a Christian perspective that suggests that wide-open free-market consumerism is not a good way to enter or invite others into the Beloved Community. You use quotes to indicate I said that, and I don’t believe I said “had it coming to them.” But I’m talking about a little accountability aiding in understanding and transformation, yes. My quip, too flip as I often am guilty of, was “So maybe they all had it coming…” which was meant to have a light tinge of irony, but I don’t have the HTML tags for that. Let’s leave it at karma and call it a day. I have to go set up a fry booth for a street fair, and other amusements for a long weekend here in Brigadoon.

I am not a libertarian.

Because it’s completely unrealistic to think there won’t always be women who seek abortions. I want the knowledge and availability of birth control to be widespread. And abortion to be, as Hillary says, safe, legal and rare. I think that’s the best we can do.

    Speaking of abortion, it’s worth knowing that U.S. abortion rates are decreasing. The most recent data indicate that they are now at the lowest level since Roe v. Wade. Lots of interesting data at this site re who has abortions (mostly young, mostly poor, heavily minority), when they occur (almost all first trimester), what kind (proportion using medication rather than surgery increasing), and where (lots in NY, few in Mississippi), and more

    It’s pretty clear that, if we really, really cared about reducing abortion, what’s needed is widespread teaching about and public support of contraception. There’s no good reason for all these unplanned pregnancies in a rich country in 2016.

    Freedom of religion also guarantees freedom from religion. So, while you are free to practice your religion, your freedom to do so should end when your practice affects me.

    So, as in the Washington case, why should a customer suffer because another person feels that his self-important religious beliefs trump (pardon the word) the customer’s needs? It doesn’t take much imagination to see how this could spiral off into La-La land.
