Just the facts…the man is a criminal, through and through. And those still supporting him can no longer claim ignorance. They choose to support a lying, racist, xenophobe, whose only aim is to enrich himself while destroying everything good about our country.
There is a growing shame to being a Trump supporter that carries a stench that will not be easily erased. History will remember.
How is this possible? The answer is simple. Most of our churches are filled with the same brand of racism, fear, hatred and bigotry as demonstrated by the Liar-In-Chief. What most white evangelicals profess is diametrically opposed to what they actually believe.
Jesus Christ, an undocumented, nonwhite refugee, would not be welcome in some white evangelical churches…and not allowed in most.
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.
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.
