Christian Democrats Are Jumping Off the Trump Train

It's Time For Democrats To Get Off the Trump Train by Christina Forrester - 8/24/17 We have all spent a lot of time and energy reacting to Donald Trump, for far too long. We have allowed this man and the alt-right to control the narrative; made it our job to react to the incredulity, the cruelty, the shock, the horror, the bullying...and many times have nothing to show for it except more fear, more anxiety, more fighting and more “energy” to his base. We let him dictate our news cycle, our … [Read more...]

Desensitization

Desensitization - by Christina Forrester There is such truth to the famous saying housed inside the Holocaust Memorial museum by Martin Niemöller – First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for … [Read more...]

Half of GOP voters want a dictator and small government at the same time

Today a new Washington Post poll was released that shows half of Republican voters seem to want a dictatorship, not a democracy. The survey, taken from June 5 to June 20 and targeting 1,325 Americans, found 52 percent of those who identified or skew more toward the Republican Party supported the idea of pushing back the 2020 election, and 56 percent said they would also support it if Trump and Congress gave their blessing.  They also believe Trump did indeed win the popular vote because 68 … [Read more...]

“For I was sick and Republicans took my healthcare”

Here is a Biblical word for the Senate GOP: the poor are just as worthy of LIFE (and QUALITY of life) as the millionaires and billionaires you are protecting. We now have the Senate healthcare bill, which makes deep cuts to Medicaid and hurts the most vulnerable in America. Like the House bill, it is a giant giveaway to the rich at the expense of the poor, working poor, the disabled, elderly...the least of these. Every single Republican who would support this bill ought to be held accountable … [Read more...]

Word of Reflection After Alexandria Shooting

First, our prayers continue to go up for Steve Scalise and others shot yesterday in this attack. If it weren't for capitol police, this scene could have been a massacre, so God bless them for their bravery. Like we saw after Gabby Giffords, there is a mood of reflection and even a minute of unity in Washington where there has been none for too long. It is difficult at best to fight against a culture of extremism, propaganda and fake news when we have a president who has championed this. … [Read more...]

Paris Climate Agreement: Biblical Warnings Against Exploiting Creation

President Trump just announced he is exiting the Paris Climate Agreement, with the support of many Republicans.  Backing out of this agreement is a slap in the face to our closest allies, to our children, the health of the world's population and our economy. It is also a slap i the face to the majority of Americans who do support the climate accord. The fact that this has been done by men claiming to be Christians who love family and Biblical values is total hypocrisy. In this article … [Read more...]
