a frightening poll for followers of Jesus

This Washington Post-ABC News Poll from last October should strike fear into the hearts of those who are disciples of the Man from Nazareth. White evangelical Christians were the biggest believers that the #BLOTUS had a strong moral character. White non-evangelical Christians were not far behind.

What that reveals about white Christians, especially evangelicals, should start alarm bells ringing in every church in the country. If those who most deeply profess to follow Jesus actually think Trump has a strong moral character, it means that they have absolutely no clue as to who Jesus is or what He taught.

The poll does, however, give us a good indication of why the church no longer has the authority and moral leadership it once had. White Protestants need to once again figure out that faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus is not the same as blind patriotism, love of country, or love of power.

The most interesting statistic was that those who professed no religion seemed to have the best understanding of the lack of moral character of the #BLOTUS. Is that possibly because their understanding of morality isn’t filtered through the lens of religion?

Morally Obscene Budget Cutting

I am not familiar with all these programs. Some may need to be cut or scaled back. I just want to address two that I know well.

The first one on this list, the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education is one of the most effective and powerful programs the US has for helping end hunger in our lifetime. This is a program that deserves far more funding, not less. And it certainly should not be cut.

PL 480 Title II Food Aid is another program designed to help end global hunger, one acknowledged by most to be a powerful tool in the fight for food for all. It has helped millions break the chains of malnutrition,

Adopting this is a shameful exercise, clearly aimed at making the rich richer at the cost of the social responsibility our country has always demonstrated as a global leader. Such cuts are morally repugnant, like the one proposing them. Caring citizens should do all in our power to oppose such a budget.

going to hell in a golf cart

Even though he is now attempting to hide the amount of time he spends on the golf course, the BLOTUS has now racked up 75 days on the links since he took the oath of office. It is no wonder why our country is going to hell in a golf cart. Between tweeting and golf our racist, ego-maniacal occupant of the offal office has not time or energy left for anything but preening. If you doubt it, ask a friend in Puerto Rico.

This is what happens when you have the biggest liar in U.S. as your leader. No one can trust him or us anymore. #BLOTUS is destabilizing the entire world while he flaunts his immorality and ignores the Constitution and all it stands for.

nepotism for dummies

For those who haven’t had the privilege of a great deal of global travel, nepotism at this scale is considered perfectly normal in most African states and other nations ruled by dictators, warlords and other corrupt leaders. What makes it noteworthy is that it is not the norm, and is even considered illegal in most democratic states. But, what else should we expect from the biggest #BLOTUS ever elected?
