I need to tell you something:
People have had it with you!
They’re done!
They want nothing to do with you any longer, and here’s why:
They see your hypocrisy, your inconsistency, your incredibly selective mercy, and your thinly veiled supremacy.
For eight years they watched you relentlessly demonize a black President; a man faithfully married for 26 years; a doting father and husband without a hint of moral scandal or the slightest whiff of infidelity.
You even had the gaul to cast a sort of Satan look alike of President Obama, in a film about when JESUS CHRIST was in the wilderness?
They watched you deny Obama's personal faith convictions, argue his birthplace, and assail his character all without cause or evidence.
They saw you brandish Scriptures to malign Obama and use the laziest of racial stereotypes in criticizing him.
Through it all, some of you Evangelicals never once suggested that GOD placed Obama where he was, you never publicly offered prayers for Obama and his family like do with other leaders.
You never welcomed him to your Christian Universities.
You never gave Obama the benefit of the doubt in any instance.
You never spoke of offering him forgiveness or mercy, for all the the fake evils he was supposed to have committed.
Some of you Evangelists never publicly even thanked GOD for his leadership.
Some of your Pastors never took to the pulpit to offer solidarity with him?
You never made any effort to affirm his humanity or show the Love of JESUS to him in any quantifiable measure.
You violently opposed him at every single turn, without offering a single ounce of the Grace you claim as the heart of your faith tradition.
You jettisoned JESUS as you dispensed damnation on PRESIDENT OBAMA.
Yet today, you openly give a “mulligan” to a white Republican President, a man so riddled with depravity, so littered with extramarital affairs, so unapologetically vile, with such a vast resume of moral filth that the mind just boggles and the change in you is unmistakable!
It has been an astonishing conversion to behold: of a being born again!
With Trump, you suddenly find religion.
With Trump, you’re now willing to offer full absolution.
With Trump, all is forgiven without repentance or admission.
With Trump you’re suddenly able to see some invisible, deeply buried heart.
With Trump, sin has become unimportant, compassion no longer a requirement.
With Trump, you see only your own Providence.
Believe me, that with some of you Evangelicals, many people who have had it with you, they now see it all clearly!
They recognize the toxic source of your inconsistency.
They see that pigmentation money and party are your sole deities.
They see that you aren’t interested in perpetuating the Love of GOD or emulating the Heart of JESUS CHRIST.
They see that you aren’t burdened to love the least, or to be agents of compassion, or to care for your Muslim, Gay, African, Female, or Poor Neighbors as yourself.
They see that all you’re really interested in doing, is making a GOD in your own ivory and cash green image and demanding that the world bow down to it!
They recognize that this is just all about a white, Republican Jesus not dark-skinned JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth.
For I know you don’t realize it, but you’re digging your own grave in these days; the grave of your very faith & tradition.
Your willingness to align yourself with cruelty is a costly marriage. Yes, you’ve gained a Supreme Court seat, a few months with the Presidency as your own grievance mouthpiece and the cheap high of temporary power but you’ve lost a whole lot more!
You’ve lost an whole audience as the fields are currently ripe and full with millions of wise, decent, good-hearted, faithful people with eyes to see this ugliness.
You’ve lost any moral high ground or spiritual authority for at least a generation.
You’ve lost any semblance of CHRIST likeness.
You’ve lost the plot.
Yet most of all, IMO through all of this you’ve lost your soul's.
I know it’s likely you’ll dismiss these words.
The fact is that you’ve even made your bed with such malevolence, shows how far gone you are and how insulated you are from the reality in front of you.
This is why I had to at least try to reach you?
For it’s what JESUS CHRIST would do!
Maybe you need to read what He said again, if He still even matters to you?
