the begging Jesus

"Jesus Panhandling" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

When the church has been stolen by the religious right it is no longer the place of love that Jesus created. If you feel stolen is too strong a word, I will settle for co-opted.

Many who Jesus died for, and loves the most, are being mocked, excluded, vilified, and intentionally made to feel unwanted and unwelcome. This has to break God’s heart.

When the least of these are not welcome, Jesus is being excluded as well. When we close our doors to them, we close our door to God.

The gulf between the poor (the marginalized, the hungry, the stranger, the immigrant, those who are different than us in any way) and us is actually the gulf between us and God. It’s time to help Jesus get His church back.  It’s supposed to be a place of love and acceptance, not a place of hate.

heading away at full speed

We are not drifting away from the truth. We are motoring away from it at maximum speed. #BLOTUS and the current administration is using Orwell’s 1984 as a playbook. We must not stop speaking the truth. Our survival as a democratic nation depends on it.

the true collaspe

Which is bigger, the size of Trump’s lies or the length of his ties?

In the seven decades I have been around, there’s been no man that has created so much mayhem so rapidly, and has lied so consistently. The United States is under attack from its own president. The #BLOTUS is toxic, pure and simple.

The Affordable Care Act definitely needs work. But, it isn’t collapsing so much as being intentionally destroyed by a tiny little man with a tiny little head and even smaller, hate-filled heart.

#BLOTUS and his Flying Monkeys

Earlier this morning I read that Robert Mueller’s team has added over a dozen new attorneys to help dig deeper into the malfeasance and corruption at the heart of Trump’s circle. Now, the president’s personal lawyer, following the wise move of Vice President Pence, has hired another lawyer to represent him. When lawyers hire lawyers they know it is about to get real.

Trump is single-handedly attempting to kick-start the economy by providing more jobs for lawyers. I don’t care how many flying monkeys the #Blotus lets fly, the Hounds of Justice are coming after him, and he can feel them getting ever closer.

a short quiz

The #BLOTUS is more than a national embarrassment, or a national disgrace. He is a shameful example of the lowest elements of our society. There’s no need to wonder why our nation is no longer seen as a leader of the free world.
