a short sermon

Indeed. - Kiera for We Leave No One Behind:

Faithfulness to the Gospel demands action. Silence in the face of injustice is a denial of the Christ we as Christians claim to follow.

being grabbed by the…

Here is another quick snapshot of what it looks like when leaders do not give a damn about representing the people they were elected to serve. This is outrageous. None of those moving for these cuts would be impacted by them as they have the best health benefits imaginable.

The only impact for them is an “attaboy” from the #BLOTUS and millions of dollars in campaign funds from the Koch brothers. This isn’t leadership. It’s our elected leaders “grabbing us by the…” It’s rape.

Anyone following this story who isn’t outraged isn’t paying attention.

leadership in the wrong direction? or no leadership?

This is a snapshot of what it looks like when our “leaders” are willing to abandon any semblance of representing the majority of us to pass a bill that’s DOA. Their boss, the #BLOTUS, has threatened them and given them orders, and the Koch brothers have promised millions to them if they get in line.

Now, we just need to see which of them have the guts to do the right thing. The real leaders will do the right thing for the citizens of our country. The morally bankrupt will quack their way to the bank to see how much they earned for turning their backs on the nation.

our knowledge is begging to be used

We already know too much about the #BLOTUS. We all know his history, his character, and his self-absorbed lifestyle of greed, bigotry and selfishness. We also know of his inability to properly lead our nation. We know his complain disdain for our laws and his continuing practice of bending them, breaking them, and completely ignoring them. We know he is a pathological liar. We all know he is unfit to hold the office of president of the United States.

But, knowledge is of no value unless we put it into practice. Chekhov is right on this point. Why, then, hasn’t the #BLOTUS already been impeached?

 

the loser’s tool

Socrates:

Is there any politician in recent US history that has been a bigger liar, or has used slander more than the man currently in the office of President? I think not.

It doesn’t take a philosopher to realize the danger of allowing such a person as the #BLOTUS to hold the reins of power. The leader of the free world needs to be a person of the highest moral character and a person of unquestionable integrity. Neither of these characteristics describe the #BLOTUS.

My hope is that his continuously plummeting  approval ratings are a indication that more and more of my fellow citizens are coming to understand just how unfit this man is to have the highest office in the land. He should not be allowed to continue flaunting his dictatorial disdain for our opinions nor our laws.

The #BLOTUS is not only the Biggest Liar in the US. He’s the biggest loser. And that’s why slander is his favorite tool.

shame on us

Trump's followers:

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

The Gospel Reading for this coming Sunday is the ninth chapter of John. It tells the story of religious leaders who refused to acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus even after it was proven that Jesus had healed a man born blind. One reason the religious leaders refused to believe was that the man was healed on the Sabbath, which broke the Jewish law. But in the end, they just refused to believe what they could see with their own eyes.

Far to many of us are fooling ourselves. We can see the truth of this administration, yet we choose not to believe what we know is true. Shame on us. Our disbelief does not change the facts. It does, however, keep us from enacting the change that needs to happen.
