I refuse to be comforted. I refuse to listen to sermons that assure me that "whatever happens, God is in control." I refuse to read and listen to pastors, authors, and leaders that comfort me with God's peace when everywhere around me I see God's war.

II. 3; 2 Kings. II. 17."

Jared is an influential left-ish economic polemicist and a sometime adviser to Barack Obama on economic affairs. I've debated with Jared dozens of times over the past several years, but what happened this week was especially disturbing.
