A Serious Letter To Christian Republicans

Dear Christian Republicans,

If Jesus Christ appeared before you now, would you follow him?

Please, look into your heart.

If the son of God pleaded with you to be by his side, would you?

Would you surrender your ideas of American exceptionalism to walk the path with him?
(“Give to Caeser what is Caeser’s; and to God what is God’s.”)

If the Lord actually appeared before you now, would you sell your possessions and give them to the poor as he asked? (“Go and sell your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”)

Or would you deny him?

Consider this instead:

Jesus doesn’t materialize in the present moment.

Instead, he’s there at your death.

At the exact moment your life ends, you find yourself kneeling before your savior.

And Jesus, the champion of the poor, puts his hand on your head and asks, “My child, setting aside your earthly allegiances, have you ever helped a wealthy man take advantage of a disadvantaged man?”

“For how would a man benefit to gain the whole world but destroy his soul or lose it?”

Christian Republicans, would you turn your back on God?

Have you already?

Only you and God can know.



Our Own Worst Enemy


The love of money, and undeniably that’s all this comes to, has defeated the Love of Love.

For now. 

Regardless, all we can do is hope for the best. 
But, We. Get. What. We. Deserve – a womanizing elitist, who publicly mocks the handicapped, who used fear and lies (which any fifth grader with Google could fact check) to get elected illegally with the help of the Russians. 

I am truly heartbroken….

The Grand Old Party Ruined The Party

My mom just said to me, “What happened to you at the party? It’s like you disappeared.”

It’s true. I escaped to the basement and watched Jack Reacher for the fiftieth time while everyone else enjoyed the bubbling birthday festivities spreading throughout the house.

Two people, at two separate times, cornered me to unload their filthy opinions of President Obama right in my face. Not argumentatively mind you, but truly expecting me to agree with their misguided, racist lunacy. I stood there and breathed silently as if in a meditation class. But since I’ve been known to explode like a hand-grenade in similar situations, I fled while the pin was still in.

I explained all of this to my mom and she replied with, “C’mon, they were all nice people. You can’t judge people by their politics.”

Au contraire mon frere.

If you wish our President ill will and favor this detrimental Republican shutdown, I have all the info I need for a proper judgment.

I subscribe to the wisdom of the movie High Fidelity, “What really matters is what you like, not what you are like.”
