Although nothing could be as crazy as this election season, 1968 had its share of insanity. It was the time of the Viet Nam war, the civil rights movement, the birth of feminism and Richard Nixon. The Democratic candidate for president, Hubert Humphrey, was famous would winding up his stump speeches invoking “the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God.” The media mocked his attempts to overcome division in the country as “bomfog” after the first letters. But the effort to find unity is straight out of the Bible. St. Paul hammers home the fact that more basic than any differences we might have is our fundamental “unity of the spirit” He finds a seven-fold oneness at the revealed basis of the human condition.
