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.
I’ve met a lot of immigrants in my life. I can truthfully say I have never experienced even one as vile and disgusting as the fear-mongering, white supremacists I have encountered.
The vile, vicious and vulgar rhetoric spewed by these racist bigots is foreign to anything even resembling morality. Their actions declare their beliefs, and what they believe is obviously diametrically opposed to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Every society has its own acceptable norms. What #BLOTUS is doing to the norms of this country is frightening, Personally, I think he is the leading factor in changing what is considered acceptable behavior in our society.
His behavior and his actions are not reflective of who we are as a nation. He isn’t a leader we want our children to emulate. We cannot allow him to normalize behavior that should never be accepted in a free and democratic society.
Not sure exactly where this is found in the gospels, but I am sure it should be there. Christians have always been identified by our love. Hate has no place in authentic spirituality.
But what he does have is greed, hatred, racism, bigotry, lies without number and a long red tie.
