welcome the stranger…

WWJD? Yes, what would Jesus do? I think we all know. He would welcome the stranger, lift up the fallen, feed the hungry, and demonstrate compassion and love to all those seeking refuge and help.

Isn’t that exactly what we who call ourselves his disciples are supposed to be doing? Isn’t following the example of Jesus Christ exactly what should be reasonably expected of us?

more rope!

You don’t have to wear robes to be complicit in Trump’s racism and xenophobia. You don’t have to chant or resort to the violence he routinely incites.You don’t have to parrot all his pathological lies.

All that is necessary to demonstrate your support is to quietly smile and say nothing…exactly like the Republicans in Congress do every single day.

she’s from another country…

There are far too many who no longer believe in the promises of Lady Liberty. They would be pleased to banish her and her values of caring, compassion and love for the downtrodden, poor and hungry.

I, for one, love her and her promises. I deplore our xenophobic racism. our selfishness, and our apathetic response to the growing hatred, fear, anger and ugliness of our culture.

I may be in the minority, but I want to help hold her torch higher and make it shine brighter. Working together I think we can make it happen. What do you want?

the only reason left…

John Pavlovitz, Christian Pastor OCCUPY DEMOCRATS'

When the United States House of Representatives passed the resolution to condemn our lying pig of a president’s racist statements only four Republicans refused to support Trump’s actions. It is clear that the majority, the vast majority, of Congressional Republicans have no honor, no shame, and no sense of responsibility for upholding the values of our country.

Those that continue defending the whore-mongering scumbag in the oval office are demonstrating their own racist leanings as well as their crass disregard for their office. Defending a traitor makes one complicit in treason. Congressional Republicans obviously do not care.

I do not know if the liar-in-chief is a pedophile, as has been claimed. I do not know if the Biggest Liar in the United States (#BLOTUS) is a pervert as has been reported.

I do know that he is a self-avowed sexual predator. And that fact alone is enough for me to want him removed from public office as fast as legally possible. Every minute he remains in office increase the irreparable shame that stains our country’s honor and our global reputation.

History will indict us. The verdict will not be kind. It will be just, but it will not be kind.
