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.

absolutely and without question!

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.

giving Christ a bad name

This really impacted me.

Gandhi has the truth of it. The Christ portrayed in the Gospels is full of love and grace. He is compassion and mercy incarnate.

There is little, if any, commonality with the sometimes rabid evangelicals claiming to follow Him and speak in His name. Ugly Evangelicals is a generalization, yet it has become far too accurate in describing so many who profess to be disciples of Jesus.

It is sad when Christians give Christ a bad name. But, isn’t that where we have now arrived?
