“they must answer for their silence”

The shocking silence of the House and Senate Republicans in response to the racist and misogynistic rants of the self-avowed sexual predator now fouling the White House demonstrates their fulsome and complete complicity with the scumbag-in-chief. Their betrayal of their sworn duty to uphold and defend the Constitution demands an accounting.

2020 cannot arrive quick enough.

the only reason left…

John Pavlovitz, Christian Pastor OCCUPY DEMOCRATS'

When the United States House of Representatives passed the resolution to condemn our lying pig of a president’s racist statements only four Republicans refused to support Trump’s actions. It is clear that the majority, the vast majority, of Congressional Republicans have no honor, no shame, and no sense of responsibility for upholding the values of our country.

Those that continue defending the whore-mongering scumbag in the oval office are demonstrating their own racist leanings as well as their crass disregard for their office. Defending a traitor makes one complicit in treason. Congressional Republicans obviously do not care.

 

the Golden Pig

I find it frightening that there are far too many who see Trump as a savior. Since the Liar-in-Chief demonstrates his blatant opposition to Christ with every vindictive breath, every statement and every action, this is beyond sad. Dangerous is the word that comes to mind.

Evangelicals like Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham support this lying, greedy, racist, adulterer with the full knowledge of who and what he is. They don’t care. White, Right-wing Evangelicals adore him because #BLOTUS has “blessed” their own bigotry, fear and hatred.

The bottom line is one can worship anyone or anything they desire. But…I do not think that anyone can worship Jesus as Lord and also worship the “golden pig.” The two are mutually exclusive.

Not all presidents are racists. Some are real leaders who model true discipleship and faithfulness to the Gospel. The shame is that the current president is an egotistical bigot that models hatred and greed rather than caring and compassion.

just a reminder…

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.

The #BLOTUS has not stopped working on his wall since he began running for the office he now disgraces every single day. It’s already a legacy of shame that will follow him and the Republicans who still support him through the generations to come.

what we truly need

And it still needs to be said in 2016.

These words by Bobby Kennedy we true when he spoke them in 1968.  Today, over 50 years later, they still resonate. Truth is a light that shines down through history undimmed by corrupt leaders espousing hatred and racism. What we really need in our country are true leaders willing to work for justice rather than enriching themselves and toeing the party line.
