true patriotism

Theodore Roosevelt quote: Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand...

At a time when most of the Republicans in the Senate are still wallowing in “the mud, the blood and the beer” with the most corrupt, cowardly, lying pig of a president in our nation’s history, we all need to remember this powerful quote from a true leader.

Every Republican that continues to defend the #BLOTUS is as much a traitor to the United States as he is. Bone Spurs are nothing compared to the spineless actions of McConnell and his herd of swine.

Every single one of them needs to be impeached; not voted out of office, impeached, indicted and tried in a court of law.

Cadet Bone Spurs

Trump just asked if the military men in front of him are real patriot because no one raised their hand to decline a pay raise to pay down the deficit.

This is one of the most insulting things I have heard from this idiotic buffoon. How dare he even joke about the military’s patriotism when he so clearly has demonstrated his own…five separate times?

so blind with patriotism…

Same goes for loyalty to your religion. LDS no more. The policy is WRONG. Quotes. General conference. #ldsconf

Right is right. Wrong is wrong. And adults should know the difference.

None of us should be so blinded by patriotism that we knowingly accept lies over the truth. And none of us should wrap ourselves in the flag to protect criminals who commit treason.

Those that do, especially our leaders elected to represent us, are complicit in this treason. Every one of them should be prosecuted as traitors.

Where are the patriots?

As more and more of the Republican in the House and Senate blindly join in lock-step to support #BLOTUS, we have to understand the depth of their treasonous behavior. They are putting self interest above their sworn duty. And they know that is what they are doing.

The president should be held fully accountable for all his disgusting words and actions. In my opinion that means impeachment and criminal charges. And if his toadies (is their a better word?) refuse to do their duty, they need to be removed from office and replaced with patriots.

If we do not use the gift of our citizenship we deserve what we currently have. And that is more than sad. It’s pathetic.

a frightening poll for followers of Jesus

This Washington Post-ABC News Poll from last October should strike fear into the hearts of those who are disciples of the Man from Nazareth. White evangelical Christians were the biggest believers that the #BLOTUS had a strong moral character. White non-evangelical Christians were not far behind.

What that reveals about white Christians, especially evangelicals, should start alarm bells ringing in every church in the country. If those who most deeply profess to follow Jesus actually think Trump has a strong moral character, it means that they have absolutely no clue as to who Jesus is or what He taught.

The poll does, however, give us a good indication of why the church no longer has the authority and moral leadership it once had. White Protestants need to once again figure out that faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus is not the same as blind patriotism, love of country, or love of power.

The most interesting statistic was that those who professed no religion seemed to have the best understanding of the lack of moral character of the #BLOTUS. Is that possibly because their understanding of morality isn’t filtered through the lens of religion?
