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.

Portland Considers Anti-Face Mask Law Responding To Antifa Violence

Officials in Portland, Oregon, are considering a ban on the wearing of masks during protest events, in response to the violent clash that took place in the city between Antifa and right-wing groups.

Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw was the first to call for anti-mask regulations following the assault of conservative journalist Andy Ngo by Antifa protesters on June 29, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

“A lot of people are emboldened because they know they can’t be identified,” Outlaw said to reporters at a press conference.

Portland officials have discussed the potential outlawing of face-covering masks for those who are attempting to hide their identities while committing a crime, said Eileen Park, a spokeswoman from the mayor’s office said.

Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler “wants to weigh his options thoroughly and hear concerns from community leaders before making a decision,” according to Parka.

The policy is a violation of the First Amendment, the Oregon American Civil Liberties Union says.

“Behavior is the issue, not the mask,” spokeswoman Sarah Armstrong explained, according to WSJ.

“A policy that prohibits wearing a mask to a protest not only risks chilling First Amendment-protected activities, particularly for those who wear ‘masks’ for political and religious reasons, it misses the issue entirely,” she continued.

Leader of the Patriot Prayer Group, Joey Gibson, says he supports the idea of anti-mask legislation.

“The second the mask come off, they even act polite,” Gibson reportedly said.

“If Ted Wheeler is tired of the national attention, all they have to do is enforce a no-mask law,” he continued.

As many as 15 U.S. states enforce anti-mask regulation of some form, much of which stems from efforts to combat the prominence of the KKK during the 20th century, according to WSJ.
