Rich Procida: As an attorney, I took an oath similar to the oaths taken by the President and members of Congress to defend the Constitution. It is not an oath to win, because as an advocate I do not control the outcome of the trial.
Rich Procida: So I charged at him like an angry parent, with a look in my eyes that said: “You better stop or I’m going to whip your hide as you’ve never been whipped before!” I think I confused and scared them.
Rich Procida: It’s simple. If you don’t stand up to a bully, he will keep bullying you. If you don’t prosecute a criminal, he will continue to commit crimes.
Rich Procida: Like Jeffery Epstein, too many people have allowed Donald Trump to get away with crimes throughout his life. Congress should not be one of them.
Rich Procida: I can see many ways in which opening an impeachment inquiry hurts the Republicans and helps the Democrats. In my view, Congress is giving Trump a huge gift by failing to begin impeachment proceedings.

Rich Procida: To argue that he actually wants the Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings against him is utter hogwash and everyone knows it, including Nancy Pelosi.
Rich Procida: The balance of power is shifting to the South. While Western Christianity is in decline, Christianity is growing throughout Asia, Africa, and South America.
Rich Procida: It should be obvious that older White Supremacists are not going to step down so that colored people can have their chance to lead. Only white progressive men are being asked to step aside.
Rich Procida: This is the story of the Gospels. The disciples expect the Messiah to be a victorious king who would defeat Israel’s enemies (Mark 10:37). Something amazing did happen, but it wasn’t what they expected.
Rich Procida: It’s time to put aside age-old prejudices and recognize that New Age beliefs and practices are spiritually valid religious activities.
Rich Procida: Northam’s years of public service, the policies he has promoted and opposed, and the way he has governed tell us more about the man he is today than does a photograph from thirty-five years ago.
