helping evil win

“THROUGHOUT HISTORY, IT HAS BEEN THE INACTION OF THOSE WHO COULD HAVE ACTED, THE INDIFFERENCE OF THOSE WHO SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER, THE SILENCE OF THE VOICE OF JUSTICE WHEN IT MATTERED MOST, THAT HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR EVIL TO TRIUMPH.”                                                                                                   – Haile Selassie

All of us have the awesome responsibility to exercise our rights as citizens. I have long heard that we have the government we deserve. And I have now come to see exactly what that means.

We all need to step up and make our voices heard. We need to stand up and make sure our vote is counted. We cannot allow the plague of fear, hatred, and ultra-right nationalism to continue to spread. It’s up to us to stop the spread of this insidious infection.

And if we don’t, if we are too busy, too indifferent, too callous and uncaring, well… we will live in a country that has the government we deserve.

God will not hold us Guiltless

Faithfulness to the Gospel demands nothing less. God will not hold us guiltless for silence in the face of evil.

Bonhoeffer was a German theologian martyred for his opposition to Hitler. His words remind us that authentic spirituality requires a real and costly  discipleship.

passive acceptance is cooperation

It is not enough to silently disagree with the corruption and evil of the current president and his administration. That silence gives tacit approval to the overt racism being spewed. That silence is seen by the predator-in-chief as acquiescence to concentration camps and draconian immigration policies.

We cannot allow our silence to be seen as support. We cannot allow our silence to encourage this cancerous evil in the white house.

Stand up. Speak out. Take action. Resist the evil that you see. In the end it is a spiritual matter.

Texas tent cities = Concentration Camps

It’s a concentration camp!

Let’s get real. The Trump administration is bragging about the policy of separating children from their parents seeking asylum. They claim it’s the law.

The truth is that it’s racism. The truth is that it’s a totally immoral policy supported by a Republican party who is fully complicit in this evil being perpetrated by the Predator of the United States.

We are closer to a white nationalist state than anytime in our history. Those supporting the separation of children from their parents at the border need to remember the Jews rounded up by Hitler. It didn’t start with the gas chambers.

We need to stop this madness right now. This is not the nation I have fought to protect.

 

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.

in the face of evil

There are those who refuse to see. There are those that look the other way. There are those too busy to care. Then there are those who actively endorse and support this evil.  In the final analysis…they are all the same. Silence in the face of evil is complicity.
