My favorite member of Congress, other than perhaps my own superb Representative (Don Beyer; we’ll call it a tie between Beyer and Rep. Donald McEachin), makes some great points as always. Go Donald McEachin!

1. “The church has done an awful job and has actually, in my judgement, misrepresented Christ, especially in that area [of LGBT equality].”
2. President Trump “can’t even acknowledge that we were attacked by the Russians, [that] our sovereignty was attacked when they meddled with our elections.”
3. The most important thing that progressives can do to get involved and make a difference is “neighbor-to-neighbor contact.” McEachin adds that this was ” one of the things…missing from the Hillary Clinton campaign.
4. On his Climate and Environmental Justice task force, McEachin argues (correctly) that “folks who live in the margins are often disproportionately affected by climate change and as the ranking member said, they are not to be considered collateral damage as we try to repair this place we call Earth.”
