How is this possible? The answer is simple. Most of our churches are filled with the same brand of racism, fear, hatred and bigotry as demonstrated by the Liar-In-Chief. What most white evangelicals profess is diametrically opposed to what they actually believe.

Jesus Christ, an undocumented, nonwhite refugee,  would not be welcome in some white evangelical churches…and not allowed in most.

"That Makes Us Refugees, Right?" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

When Mary and Joseph fled to protect the life of their son,  Jesus, they became refugees. Unless I am sadly mistaken that makes Jesus a refugee.

How is it then that so many Evangelical Christians worship a refugee on Sunday, but despise refugees the rest of the week? Am I missing something here? Or, is there a true disconnect with what so many of us profess and what we really believe?

a good place to start…

This sign in front of the Canadian Memorial Centre for Peace provides a powerful message to all of us this Sunday morning, especially those of us who claim to worship the living Christ. Those living in faithfulness to the Gospel understand that love builds longer tables and even bridges. Only fear and hatred builds walls.

Something t.he Church should be doing… basic morality calls for each of us to stand up on behalf of the poor, hungry, outcast, marginalized and mistreated. The protesting NFL players are using their highly visible platform to demonstrate to all the rest of us that we have no excuse not to get involved in ending injustice.

a parade for lil Donnie

The only military parade our lying, racist, traitor of a president should get is in Moscow from the country he serves. Military parades should be reserved for American heroes who can never be given enough respect. Five-time draft dodgers deserve nothing but shame and disgust.
