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.

Fairfax Compares Himself To Lynching Victims — Continues To Refuse Calls For Resignation

Virginia Democratic Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax compared himself to lynching victims Sunday, as he faces two allegations of sexual assault including rape.

In a speech on the Virginia Senate floor, Fairfax continued to deny any of the allegations, comparing himself to those lynched in Virginia between 1877 and 1950 in regards to no due process. Fairfax said the allegations he has faced are nothing but accusations and are based on “no facts,” according to The Associated Press.

“I’ve heard much about anti-lynching on the floor of this very Senate, where people were not given any due process whatsoever, and we rue that,” Fairfax said.

“And we talk about hundreds, at least 100 terror lynchings that have happened in the Commonwealth of Virginia under those very same auspices. And yet we stand here in a rush to judgment with nothing but accusations and no facts and we decide that we are willing to do the same thing,” Fairfax continued.

The comments come as Virginia Republicans are planning to invite the two women who accused Fairfax of sexual assault to testify in front of them.

Virginia Speaker of the House Kirk Cox blasted Democrats for refusing to investigate the two allegations against Fairfax Thursday. Along with Fairfax’s two accusers, Republicans will also invite Fairfax to provide testimony regarding the allegations, including rape.

Democrats believe that the testimonies should not be done in a public hearing, but by a law enforcement agency. However, one of Fairfax’s accusers accepted the invitation not long after Republicans invited her, although there is no official date scheduled.

“Meredith Watson is gratified that the Virginia General Assembly has announced their intention to hold hearings, and she looks forward to testifying at this forum. It is our understanding that the hearing will be public and televised and that Ms. Watson, Dr. Tyson and Lt. Governor Fairfax will all testify under oath and be subject to the same rules and requirements, including our right to present witnesses and corroborators,” Nancy Erika Smith, the attorney for Meredith Watson, said in a statement Friday afternoon.

The Democratic Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam is also under fire after old yearbook photos revealed he wore blackface next to a man in Ku Klux Klan garment. After admitting to the photos, Northam has since denied being in the photos. He has faced numerous calls from Democrats across the U.S. to resign.
