praying for the poor cannot be tolerated

I have watched the video and have listened to the chaplain’s prayer. It is a theologically-solid prayer, much like I have prayed on many occasions. It was not partisan. It just lifted up the Representatives’ responsibility on behalf of the least of these among us. But, that was far too threatening for that august body.

Paul Ryan fired the chaplain  for reflecting the light of Christ in the midst of darkness. Shining the light of Christ’s love in a den of thieves causes them to flee every time.

Standing up for the poor and hungry, especially to the wealthy and powerful elite, is a good way to shorten your career path. It’s also, however, how you stay on the highway to holiness.

Shame on Paul Ryan, and shame on all those in the U.S. House of Representatives who have not stood up against this action.

Mid-terms are coming.

repugnant is as repugnant does

Human rights are violated when a tax reform plan lines the already bulging pockets of the rich at the cost of life-saving services for the poor. Human rights are violated when corporations are given precedence over the hungry.

The Republican leaders in Congress have clearly demonstrated that they are unafraid of violating human rights on a massive scale. Their willingness to promote and support unfair economic structures for their own benefit is even more morally repugnant than their continued support and protection of a traitorous president.

Those guilty of either or both should be legally removed from office and tried for treason.

Resistance Alert

PAY ATTENTION, tRUMP/REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO SHUT THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION DOWN! WE MUST NOT LET THAT HAPPEN!! WE WANT THE **TRUTH!!** STAY WOKE & RESIST!!

I marched in opposition to the Second Gulf War, both in Washington, DC and New York. I spoke out to any who would listen about the grossly immoral actions our nation were taking. I made my voice heard.

Now, I will continue to speak out against those in power who are tearing apart our country and ripping up the very fabric of American society. I see #BLOTUS creating a dangerous personality cult that is far to similar to what Hitler did in Germany in the 1930s. We are already at the place where those in power can enrich themselves while ignoring the needs of the poor and middle classes.

History shows us where this road leads, It isn’t pretty, and it isn’t a place I want us to go.

Trump’s greed and his message of hate must be resisted at every opportunity. I will again take to the streets if the Trump-Russia investigation is derailed by any means. The right to peaceful protest needs to be used while it is still a right.

naturally selfish…who knew?

So now he’s all over being selfish? Don’t think so.

Nothing has changed as far as I can see. He’s still the same greedy, egotistical racist as he was in 1990. Oh, except that now he has the power to enrich himself and demonstrate just how little he cares for the rest of the people of this nation. Will we ever learn?
