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.
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.
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.
Trump continues to turn out more lights in our nation. We see the darkness getting deeper, spreading.
As the darkness deepens the roaches are becoming more confident. They know the darkness is their friend, and they know that a immoral, racist, power-mad autocrat is clearing the way for them to feed.
I detest roaches. I detest racists. I detest what Trump is doing to encourage the roaches in our country.
And every day the darkness deepens.
I cannot help wondering how many other folks have become ashamed, embarrassed, and dare I say…sickened over how the religious right have stolen and smeared the mantle of evangelism.
There seems to be absolutely no limit for Trump’s base. This is especially true for the white evangelicals.
This says far more about evangelical Christianity in our country than it does about the lying sleazebag in the offal office, but it does raise a couple profound theological questions.
Is Stormy Daniels going to be the new saint of the religious right? Is there any connection between white evangelicals and the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Maybe someone could introduce them to the New Testament.
