I know my approach may be too confrontational or blunt for some professed Christians but I think people are forth fighting for.
I believe what we're seeing right now from organized Christianity is a flat-out disgrace and I'm not alright with it.
I don't think Jesus would be.
I think if more people of faith who've been horrified over the past 4 years had spoken with forceful clarity the sickness may not have be normalized in the Church in the way it has. Many "nice" Christians stayed out of the trenches of specificity and that has grieved me terribly.
A pastor once said to me before I spoke at his church, "I so appreciate what you say and how you say it because I can't."
I said, "Well, you could—you might just end up out here with a jerk like with me."
I don't believe in hatred but I believe in ferocity on behalf of humanity.

White friends, we cannot celebrate Martin Luther King's Jr's life without fully grieving.

We can't do it without lamenting Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka and Jeff Sessions and Mitch McConnell.


We can't do it while defending the expulsion of immigrants and the denial of refugees.
We can't do it while waving Confederate flags and worshiping monuments to slavery's dehumanizing legacy.
We can't do it without mourning the young black men who still die without cause during traffic stops and officers who face no accountability when they murder them.

Wait, wait, wait... so the people who’ve been threatening violence for weeks, saying Trump is going to prevail, who organized a March because they “had the numbers”—want us to believe NONE of those people showed up, but ANTIFA in MAGA gear did?

They can’t even own their hatred.
By the way, if anyone really believed they were ANTIFA, they would have been shot with guns, not shot in selfies.

@mattgaetz should go to prison for this insurrection.
So Rudy and Trump just spoke to an audience comprised of Leftist plants, implored them to march on the Capitol, and they all risked certain jail, injury, or death all just to make Trump supporters look bad?

I never wrote about politics or mentioned a politician or party by name, until Donald Trump began his 2016 campaign. It was alarming to witness, and I believed it was a moment of historic urgency that as a Christian pastor I could not sit out, one that required specificity.
I remember the first time I wrote a piece mentioning him, a family member said, "You better be careful, you'll alienate half your potential audience."

I replied, "I'm not writing to keep an audience, I'm declaring who I am and what matters to me. I'll live with the results."
With each passing week, I've been more certain I was right to speak up, because it allowed me to connect with like-hearted people all over the world and to realize how medicinal community is, how interdependent we all are.

I'm not praying for Rudy Giuliani.

I'll pray for the families of the 280,000 Americans who have died while Republicans have made fun of, ignored, or thumbed their noses at this pandemic, while Rudy has attacked a free and fair election and prevented us from moving forward.
I have compassion for the victims of this president, his Administration, his party, his surrogates, and his supporters, who show zero concern for the greatest loss of life during this short a span in our lifetime.
I have deep empathy for the people who will continue to get sick and die as a direct result of this anti-mask, anti-Science, anti-decency MAGA movement, and Republicans who insist on protecting a sociopathic despot who has never given a damn about other’s suffering.

In the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump dropped the phrase fake news into the national lexicon to tremendous (and disastrous) effect. He understood how much people value the truth as an idea, and how much they despise being lied to.
Trump knew if you can cast doubt in someone about another entity (a person, a politician, party, a segment of the population), if you can make someone believe they’re being misled, they will revolt against the perceived offender and won’t require much, if any, evidence to do so.
Their visceral response to the mere suggestion of deception will be so great that it will supersede both clear logic and measurable proof.
