Truth is where you find it, right? When I saw this photo it stopped me cold. I would not ever allow a child or a grandchild of mine say the things or act the way the Liar-in-Chief speaks and acts.
I am confounded that a third of our country sees the man as a leader and a good role model. His gross immorality and blatant lack of ethical behavior is abhorrent. Yet, numerous white evangelical leaders continue to choose him over the message of the Gospel.
Tomorrow night is the State of the Union Address. For the first time in history we need to make sure we protect our children from watching.
I m currently editing a children’s book on ways to help the hungry. When I saw this, I again realized that helping others, serving others, living for others are all at the core of changing the world and achieving true justice. That’s true for all of us, and not just children.
The only thing more confusing than how the #BLOTUS got into office is how he stays there. Is there no limit to the blind allegiance the GOP base will offer this family? Maybe he did actually tell the truth (once) when he bragged about being able to shoot down someone in broad daylight and still have the support of his base.
The new Health Care Bill passed by the House yesterday is yet another example of how power corrupts and the greed of the wealthy knows no limits. Our nation sees less justice with each passing day for the poor, the marginalized, and the powerless.
Those of us who identify with the least of these among us, those of us who try to live lives modeled after the man of Nazareth, know that the answer to injustice is love. And the more radical that love, the more effective it is at ripping through the lies of those in power.
Now is the time for us to demonstrate faithfulness to the Gospel in everything we do and say. Now is when we must not be silent, but speak the truth to those whose disregard for justice threatens those who need it most.
Nominating Betsy DeVos for the Secretary of Education is putting the bear fox in the henhouse. BLOTUS is already attacking every major gain we have made as a nation, not just dismantling public education, but in every other arena, as well.
