a rather novel idea

For all the evangelical right who still have the audacity to support Trump while calling themselves disciples of Christ, this hopefully will show you how far from being faithful followers you really are. Trump’s values are diametrically opposed to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

You can follow one or the other…not both. Your choice is clear as to where your values truly are.

let’s not pretend…

Oops too late (Post-Election Poll Jump For trump - 54% of Americans think trump will succeed as president, and trump gets all-time high likability rating of 47%, up about ten points from pre-election . What's the matter with America????):

A follow-up to yesterday’s post, this powerfully direct statement by Eugene Robinson is a plea for all of us to stand up to the intentional destruction of common decency that the election of the #BLOTUS represents. The open misogyny, ugliness, and vindictive behavior of those in power should  never be normalized.

No person, especially the President of the United States, deserves respect when basic human decency seems to be a foreign concept to them. Leadership requires far more than wealth and power.

When children act inappropriately we are quick to teach them how to behave properly. Isn’t it time we do the same with the leader of the free world?

just follow the money…

Nominating Betsy DeVos for the Secretary of Education is putting the bear  fox in the henhouse. BLOTUS is already attacking every major gain we have made as a nation, not just dismantling public education, but in every other arena, as well.

three great treasures

Jesus taught that where our treasure is, there will be our heart, also. If we agree with the great Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, our hearts are surely in a good place. Our world would be a far kinder and much more gentle place if we would demonstrate our wealth in these treasures.
