Responding to Trump and his Charlottesville remarks: What would Jesus do?
August 16, 2017
Is this a good time to ask the question: What would Jesus do?
I'm sickened by what President Trump said about the Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and other hate groups. He doesn't represent me and a whole lot of other people in their thinking about people who look different than them and who come from different ethnic backgrounds.
In my mind, it all comes back to Jesus Christ and the life he lived. First, Jesus was a Jew. Do the white power types know this? Yet many of them call themselves Jesus followers. How do they explain that?
In the past there used to be uniting figures who could bring people of all types together. One was Billy Graham, a world famous evangelist whose son Franklin has assumed leadership of his ministry. But, it should be noted that he is an unabashed supporter of Trump.
What's next for this country? Does Trump need to step down?
This country needs to cleanse itself from this evil way of thinking and acting.
What would Jesus do?
