Why?

The Washington Post released a damning article that our president (who some are now calling our Leaker-in-Chief) actually gave the Russian diplomats highly classified and sensitive information during their recent visit to the White House. When finally confirmed, I will not be surprised.

One  big question that I would like addressed is, ” Why did the #BLOTUS allow Russian press into his office when he wouldn’t allow US press to cover the meeting?” Some wags have said that at least now the Russians no longer have to be hacking us. Trump will just tell them whatever they want to know.

Is he more concerned with informing the Russians than he is the American public? If so, why?

Not a week goes by that we do not see ever more evidence that our leader is under the influence of those whose plans and efforts are not in our best interest. There’s far too much smoke; dark, heavy, billowing smoke, for there not to be a major fire in the oval office.

So the final question: Why hasn’t the fire department be called?

Non Christians Grasp Moral Values better than Christians

These poll results, from October 2016 are disturbing as they are frightening. They do, however, explain a great deal.

Those voters claiming no religion clearly understand the lack of moral values on display by #BLOTUS. What is so alarming about this is that White Christians all feel much more strongly that this man has a strong moral character.

When non Christians can see the lack of moral character in #BLOTUS while Christians cannot, it is a strong indictment on our lack of teaching in the Church. Somehow we have not been taught  true Gospel values. Either that, or the Church has completely sold out to society.

Actually, both are probably true. We have allowed ourselves to be blinded to the ugly reality of society so flagrantly demonstrated by #BLOTUS. The racism, the hatred, the bullying, the bigotry, the nepotism, the greed, the lying are no longer seen as moral character flaws, but are even admired.

There’s a vast chasm between faithfulness to the Gospel and blind patriotism. It saddens me that the majority of those attending Church this morning cannot see that. Their unwavering support of a liar who consistently lives so contrary to the values taught by Jesus proves they are blind to reality.

I agree with Bernie Sanders on this point. Do you?

Education needs to be accessible to all. Education is critical for the poor climb out of poverty.

Providing a good education is one of the most powerful tools we have to end hunger in our lifetime.  And this is as true in the US as it is anywhere else in the world.
