budgets are moral documents

yep:

Now, the proposed draconian budget cuts #BLOTUS has proposed exponentially exacerbates the real problem. Budgets are moral documents. The one now proposed by #Blotus is yet one more clear demonstration that he is not only unfit for the highest office in the land, he is unfit to mingle in civilized society.

How long will we as a democratic nation allow him to make a mockery of the office of President while he rampages around like a blind bull in a china shop? It’s gone beyond sad. It’s now officially disgusting.

We need to stop being enablers. It’s time for an intervention.

here’s part of the problem

And the 50% in congress who are not “officially” millionaires are within spitting distance. Those in power have little in common with the majority of the citizens in the United States. This is one reason the gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow at such an alarming rate. Democracy cannot long survive with such a huge discrepancy of incomes between the haves and the have-nots.

the great divide

What a wonderful illustration of the great divide. This delightful cartoon tells the story of one of my favorite quotes.

“The distance between us and the poor is the distance between us and God.” 

A church that is happy and taking its ease during these times is a church that doesn’t comprehend the love of God, or the gospel of Jesus Christ. And any Christian leader that isn’t outraged at our government’s treatment of the poor and marginalized needs to wake up and pay attention.

 

proudly part of the lunatic fringe

Orwell is saying “I told you so.” In a world of half-truths, deceit and lies, speaking the truth is an act of rebellion.

Hearing unpleasant and even ugly truths is never pleasant. But hearing the truth is the first step to correcting what’s wrong. And there’s far too much that’s wrong in our nation and our world.

I want to be a part of the revolution that stands for justice. I want to be with those standing with the poor and hungry. If that is lunacy, so be it. I think I can see Jesus in the midst of us.
