Community Fellowship

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.

Dem Operatives Say Ocasio-Cortez Media Coverage Could Derail Party In 2020

Top Democrats are quietly circulating a poll from May showing swing state voters are tying New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s brand of progressive liberalism with the mainstream Democratic Party, Axios reported Sunday.

Those distributing the poll say swing voters know and dislike socialism, with some operatives warning the connection could cost the Democratic Party the House and the presidency. One operative lamented the over-sized amount of media coverage Ocasio-Cortez and her progressive colleagues are attracting.

“If all voters hear about is AOCit could put the [House] majority at risk,” a top Democrat involved in 2020 congressional races told Axios, addressing the poll’s details. “he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races.” The poll included 1,003 likely voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.

More than 74% of voters in the poll recognized Ocasio-Cortez, with 22% of people surveyed holding a favorable view. One of the New York Democrat’s colleague, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, received a similar level of fanfare among those polled. She was recognized by 53% of the voters, with only 9% of people holding a favorable view of her.

The poll, which was shared to Axios on the condition of anonymity, shows swing voters don’t think much of Ocasio-Cortez’s brand of Democratic-Socialism Socialism. Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.

Axios’ report comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California attempts to deal with a minor insurrection from Ocasio-Cortez and three of her liberal House colleagues. Pelosi took a shot at the upstart New York lawmaker during a July 6 interview with the New York Times.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following,” Pelosi told TheNYT’s columnist Maureen Dowd. “They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.” Ocasio-Cortez then used the race-card against the senior Democrat.

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” she said in a July 11 interview with The Washington Post. “t got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”
