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.

St. Louis Park City Council Reinstates Pledge Of Allegiance After Public Outcry

Recommended Posts

By Whitney Tipton -



A city council in Minnesota voted Monday to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance after its ban sparked a national outcry, including criticism from President Donald Trump.

The St. Louis Park City Council voted 7-0 to again recite the pledge before its bimonthly meetings after voting on June 17 to abolish the practice, a move which drew local protests and the attention of national media outlets, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.

Council members made it clear that their vote was intended to quell controversy as much as anything.

“I’m genuinely concerned about the safety and the productivity of our city staff and our residents, and that is why I am making this motion,” said council member Thom Miller. “To be clear, I fully agree with the change that we made in June to eliminate the Pledge of Allegiance from our standard meeting agendas.”

The Pledge of Allegiance to our great Country, in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, is under siege. That is why I am going to win the Great State of Minnesota in the 2020 Election. People are sick and tired of this stupidity and disloyalty to our wonderful USA!

St. Louis Park is located in Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar‘s congressional district.

Council members reported that emails and calls they received after voting to ban the pledge were harassing and threatening. Steve Hallfin, a U.S. Army veteran and council member, reported that a message he received called for his hanging.

Monday’s meeting was attended by approximately 100 protesters, some of whom made it into the council chambers and interrupted council members, Minnesota Public Radio reported.

“This circus needs to end,” council member Margaret Rog said.

The council’s initial decision to exclude the pledge was intended to make new residents and non-citizens feel more welcome.

“We do need to become one nation, indivisible,” said council member Tim Brausen. “So please join us in working on it.”
