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.

“…you have done it to me.”

The sad reality is that the Evangelical Right, piously lifting their praise this morning. are the ones who would be reporting Jesus to the authorities tomorrow. So many have never learned the Gospel messages of “love your neighbor as yourself,” and “as you have done it to the least of these, you have done it to me.”

celebrating Fathers Day Trump style

JESUS! What the hell has happened to Our Country....What’s happened to us as Americans....What’s happened to us that we stand by and watch a Horrible Human Being Destroy Everything we hold Dear as a Nation. This is wrong on every level and we All should be Ashamed. *American Concentration Camps For Children*

I do not give a damn what laws are on the books. Anyone not condemning such treatment of those seeking protection and asylum in our country is complicit with such blatant hatred and racism.

Trump’s greatness is the greatness of Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Russia, or any other dictator you care to name. There’s a vast difference between greatness and evil. And perpetrating evil never leads to greatness…never.

“- it’s a beautiful church.”

This is our Christian President…really? It’s a beautiful church with no name. But, actually Easter is a time for families, get-together and golfing…the perfect Christian description of the holiest and most sacred day of the liturgical year.

Now I understand why the white Evangelicals adore this man. He is the perfect embodiment of their values. He knows almost as much about discipleship as he does about governing.

recognizing a Jesus person

Mr. Laurie has a great point. There’s a huge difference between being a religious person and being a person who follows the lifestyle and teachings of Jesus.

Religious folks, Jerry Falwell, Jr. for example, all too often, have a world view that they claim is Christian. Nothing, however, could be further away from the truth.

A Jesus person doesn’t preach hatred, bigotry or greed. A Jesus person doesn’t support racism or white surpremacy and doesn’t endorse or condone the use of violence. Yet, a religious person is free do do all of this.

A Jesus person can be recognized by their openness and acceptance of others and their caring and compassion for anyone in need. Jesus people are the ones who attempt to demonstrate a lifestyle of love rather than fear, reaching out to build bridges of hope and understanding rather than walls of separation.

One last hint to help recognize a Jesus person, look for a joyful smile.  Religious people have an extremely difficult time faking that. They are usually far too angry.
