When God Shouts

Mea culpa and discipleship in the face of an impending Trump presidency.
Nov. 15, 2016
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

There are some for whom even this isn't low enough on the bottom-feeder scale... to them, "[making] America great again" means giving up someone ELSE’s essential liberty for THEIR temporary safety. Where I come from this sort of thing is referred to as COWARDICE.

For the record, I don't believe any of you condone all this, & I don't give a frog's water-tight asshole how you voted, nor your reasons for doing so. I cherish each & every one of you! And it should go without saying that I have no intention of petulantly "unfriending" anyone on Facebook either. But we do need to be honest here. Whether we intended to or not, WE created this mess & it's up to US to clean it up.

You & I have a decision to make...

  • Do we stand for Liberty & Justice for ALL... including those who don't share our race, religion, gender, or origin...?
  • Or do we spend the next four years pounding spikes into the wrists, feet, & sides of the One who went to the cross for them as well as for us...?

Make no mistake people... You CANNOT shirk the former, publicly or in private, without committing yourself to the latter. No if's, and's, but's, or excuses. Today I stand before all of you, & the world, & commit myself to the former.

Who's with me…?
