Donald Trump is a Christian. The majority of the Klu Klux Klan is Christian. Let that bake your noodle for a bit.

donald trump is a race baiter and professional divider. The kkk needs no introduction or further discussion.

Question: how do you pray “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.” When they know full-well “what they do?”

The year is not 1960. We’re living in 2016 – in the dawn of the new millennium. We have advanced technology and gadgets and gizmos aplenty. But our minds are in retrograde.

The Argument: you shouldn’t judge a whole tree by a few rotten apples.

The Reality: the rotten apples make the loudest noise, have the largest influence and upon closer inspection are actually not few but many.

This nation has been a house divided for decades now, apparently Christians are hell-bent on keeping it that way. And some wonder why the label Christian makes others cringe.

We’re great at sending missionaries overseas. Maybe its time we sit still and get our own house in order before trying to clean up someone else’s.

Forgive us Father for we know not what we do. Amen.
