Mexico held its mid-term elections on June 7th, 2015.

This election completely replaced the entire 500 seat Cámara de Diputados (Mexican equivalent of our House of Representatives) with completely new representatives.  The new representatives are to take office on September 1st.

The Mexican Senate was not up for a vote in this mid-term, as all its members were elected three years ago and the Senate has six-year terms, all beginning and ending together.

Besides the Cámara de Diputados elections, there were gubernatorial elections in nine states, elections for state legislatures in 17 states, and elections for mayors in 300 municipios.

Donald Trump has officially entered the race for the White House with a bang, and his introductory speech has already ruffled feathers in Mexico.

Mexican government officials were quick to criticize Trump’s speech.  That’s not surprising, as the Mexican political and media class pay close attention to immigration-related politics north of the border.

But what are the real issues here?

Magna Carta is now 800 years old.  The document was signed at Runnymede, near Windsor, in England, on June 15th, 2015. That’s 800 years.

Magna Carta is important in the development of English constitutional law and is thus a predecessor document to the U.S. Constitution.

The leaders of the  Southern Baptist Church, America’s largest Protestant denomination, have gotten themselves into a tizzy over the supposed lack of diversity in their denomination.

What’s the real issue here, from a Christian perspective?

The Christian religion is both universal and particular.

Christianity is a universal religion. It’s for  all those who believe in Jesus Christ, and it is not the exclusive property of any race or culture.
