Prejudice is an ugly part of humanity.
The ugliest is saying your enemy isn’t human.
He is an animal without your qualities
How could it be otherwise.
Hitler did it with the Jews.
Andy Jackson with Native Americans.
Too many did it with people of color.
They aren’t human like us.
The worst is some who claim the Christian mantle.
They see some human beings as not being equal to them.
They don’t deserve our love because they are not like us.
They don’t deserve our compassion because they are not human.
Jesus was dedicated to defending the defenseless.
He hated bigotry and religious hypocrisy.
He relentlessly called out the faithless teachings of his day.
His harshest words were for those supposed religious leaders.
How about some of our religious leaders of today?
What would Jesus say about some of them?
Would he call them a “brood of vipers”?
If he did, would it mean anything to them?
81% of white Evangelicals voted for the current president!
They and their religious leaders enthusiastically support him!
They turn a blind eye to his immoral actions!
They are giving to Caesar what belongs to God!
One cannot be a follower of Jesus and support Trump.
If you are willing to abandon the teachings of Jesus,
If you turn a blind eye to his racist rhetoric,
You have lost the right to call yourself Christian.
It really is as simple as that.
