John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Big-Name Democrats Call On Northam To Resign Following Racist Yearbook Photo Controversy

Several big name Democratic politicians are calling on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to resign following a racist picture that appeared on a page set aside for him in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand were some of the Democrats who called on Northam to resign. The picture showed one person wearing blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan costume in Northam’s section of the yearbook.

These racist images are deeply disturbing. Hatred and discrimination have no place in our country and must not be tolerated, especially from our leaders – Republican or Democrat. Northam must resign.

— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) February 2, 2019

These images arouse centuries of anger, anguish, and racist violence and they’ve eroded all confidence in Gov. Northam’s ability to lead. We should expect more from our elected officials. He should resign.

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) February 2, 2019

There aren’t two sets of rules for our friends and our foes: Right is right and wrong is wrong. Americans deserve to be respected by their leaders, and racism cannot be excused in our government or anywhere else. Having seen the photo, I believe Governor Northam should resign.

— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) February 2, 2019

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who will be running for president in 2020, said Northam must resign if he cannot “win back” trust in a tweet on Sunday. She added, however, that there needs to be space for people to “evolve away from hatred and bigotry.”

We also need to take firm responsibility for our actions and the pain caused, and make amends. If Governor @RalphNortham cannot win back the trust of his constituents, he must resign.

— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) February 2, 2019

Gabbard previously called on Congress to take “action immediately” to censure Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King over his questions on how the terms “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” became offensive.

Steve King’s comments and views are outrageous, offensive and must be condemned. Congress must take action immediately and pass a resolution to censure him. https://t.co/HcDjir2rmm

— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) January 12, 2019

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also called out King, but has not commented on Northam at the time of reporting.

At this point those who use the terms “racially tinged” or “racially charged” to describe white supremacy should be prepared to explain why they chose to employ those terms instead of “racist”/”racism.”

If the answer is their own discomfort, they’re protecting the wrong people.

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 12, 2019

Northam apologized for the picture appearing in the Eastern Virginia Medical School yearbook Friday, but then denied being in the picture in a Saturday press conference.

Warren, Booker, Gabbard, Ocasio-Cortez and Gillibrand did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

 Northam wouldn't even shake E W Jackson's hand. And yes his opponent is black. Can you imagine if a Republican acted like this?

 

 Here's the video:
