To .@BenSasse: You say you are a Jesus follower/historian. Yet you are erasing from historical memory the genocide of Native Americans, enslavement and rape of Africans, Chinese laborers separated from their families and the sex trafficked women brought here to “comfort” them...
Yes, @BenSasse, You say you are a Jesus Follower/historian, but your whitewashed history plows over the dehumanizing violence inflicted upon racialized Mexican Americans and terrorized LGBTQ people and women your party refuses to guarantee equal rights and protection of law...
And, .@BenSasse, You say you are a Jesus Follower/historian? Then why are you SILENT abt VIOLENCE being done to VOTERS OF COLOR, made in #imageofGod/called by GOD to help steward the world?! GOP leaders are BLOCKING their own CITIZENS frm exercising most basic stewardship—VOTING.
And .@BenSasse. There is CLEAR HISTORICAL PRECEDENT for the SIN-LACED actions of your White GOP colleagues in Georgia and Kansas and North Dakota right now. It its called #JimCrow. Heard of it? ...
So .@BenSasse, to erase this inconvenient history is to erase White men’s VIOLENCE against the image of God in our land. It is a SINFUL burial of the historical record of White men’s war against God to secure and maintain supremacy on earth...
I recommend, .@BenSasse, that you pick up your Bible again and consider this: Every single writer of every single word of every single book was an indigenous brown oppressed person. Now ask yourself this: Which side of this story am I fighting for? #thatisall
