healthcare…or a criminal enterprise?

Allowing huge pharmaceutical companies to continue gouging the public for life-saving medicines is wrong. It’s about the corruption and greed that is rampant in our society, and how the powerful, wealthy, and elites do whatever necessary to amass even more wealth regardless of the cost or pain inflicted on the poor and the hungry. Such price gouging by big pharma is a clear demonstration of our society’s immorality and loss of values.

Vote as if we believe the Gospel…

We are living in an age where our every word, our every action, must clearly demonstrate our faithfulness to Jesus Christ. This constant and consistent demonstration of discipleship includes using the gift of our citizenship to live an intentional lifestyle of love and compassion. That means we must use our opportunity to vote to stand up for the true values of the Gospel.

We must vote. And we must vote for love and compassion.

let’s get real…

Authentic Christian spirituality is demonstrated by our actions. A caring and compassionate response to those in need reflects the love of Christ.

A response to those in need based in fear, selfishness, greed and racial bigotry does not demonstrate God’s grace and mercy. These are not Christian values, nor is violence, especially directed toward the poor and the suffering.

Getting real means adopting a lifestyle of faithfulness to the Gospel. Real Christianity requires a radical discipleship to Jesus Christ that demonstrates His love and grace in all relationships and in our every action. And this is especially true in regard to how we treat the least of these among us.

like father, like son…

True Christian discipleship means faithfulness in living like the one we follow. I do not remember anywhere in the Gospels where Jesus berates, castigates, or condemns anyone for their race or sexual orientation.

I do remember him saying multiple times that we are to love each other more than we love ourselves. Maybe our spirituality should be determined more by how much we love rather than all the things we condemn…just a thought

Redford on Pruitt

I have no difficulty in completely agreeing with Redford’s statement concerning Scott Pruitt. Like so many (the majority) of Trump’s Cabinet Appointees, he is a walking disaster bent on destroying the agency he is supposed to lead.

He doesn’t even attempt to hide his unbridled greed and corruption. Scott Pruitt needs to be fired, replaced, indicted  and tried for crimes against the American people.
