We all knew what #BLOTUS was before he was elected and we all know what he still is today. Yet, he was still elected to the highest office in the United States. Why?
Since his election has he done anything other than reinforce what we have known all along? I think not.
Why is he allowed to remain in office? Why is he allowed to continue embarrassing our country every time he opens his filthy mouth? Why doesn’t the Republican-led Congress hold him accountable for his lies and total disregard for the law? Why aren’t we all outraged enough to act?
I have never been more ashamed of my country’s leaders as I am today. Am I the only one?
Lest we forget, we were warned. And we were warned more than once.
The spectacle now unfolding, this reeking debacle of compounded incompetence, hubris, lies and blatant nepotism, is a shameful blot on the highest office in our land. What should be the most respected position in the free world is becoming a mixed-genre comedy/horror story.
Every chapter is more unbelievable than the last. And he ending is either going to have the entire world in stitches, rolling on the floor in relieved laughter, or in devastated ruins. But, we were warned, weren’t we?
These poll results, from October 2016 are disturbing as they are frightening. They do, however, explain a great deal.
Those voters claiming no religion clearly understand the lack of moral values on display by #BLOTUS. What is so alarming about this is that White Christians all feel much more strongly that this man has a strong moral character.
When non Christians can see the lack of moral character in #BLOTUS while Christians cannot, it is a strong indictment on our lack of teaching in the Church. Somehow we have not been taught true Gospel values. Either that, or the Church has completely sold out to society.
Actually, both are probably true. We have allowed ourselves to be blinded to the ugly reality of society so flagrantly demonstrated by #BLOTUS. The racism, the hatred, the bullying, the bigotry, the nepotism, the greed, the lying are no longer seen as moral character flaws, but are even admired.
There’s a vast chasm between faithfulness to the Gospel and blind patriotism. It saddens me that the majority of those attending Church this morning cannot see that. Their unwavering support of a liar who consistently lives so contrary to the values taught by Jesus proves they are blind to reality.
Matthew 25:43 “I was a stranger and you didn’t invite me in…”
BLOTUS has reiterated on numerous occasions that he is smarter than our military leaders and the intelligence community. He routinely skips intelligence briefs designed to prepare him for protecting and guiding our country.
Confronted with the facts of Russian interference in our election process, he makes excuses and blames the Democratic National Party. When any nation interferes with the internal workings of another it is grounds for a severe reprisal, even war. Instead, Trump plays down the hacking and just says it didn’t affect the outcome.
That is not the issue. The real issue is that Trump can not see beyond his ego. As George Little has written, BLOTUS is playing a truly dangerous game. And what is at stake is the safety and security of our nation.
