Reproduction and the Election

screen-shot-2015-05-12-at-12-37-43-pm
Good Morning, God!

I know that some of my Christian sisters are hearing from Trump supporters: ”GET OUT AND VOTE SO WE CAN TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY.”  I guess to them that means NO MORE LEGAL ABORTIONS.

Trump is offering Christian voters a Supreme Court that would outlaw abortions.
That is the Bait.

I guess the Party of Trump is hoping that this single issue will blind us to the fact that Trump himself and his proposed policies are the very opposite of our Christian values.

I think of how Trump has made fun of handicapped reporters,
calling women fat pigs, slobs, and dogs
called Mexicans criminals and rapists ,
and called poor people “losers.”

Spewing hate and mocking people is not what we Christians believe in.

Jesus makes it clear in Matthew 25 that how we treat others
is how we treat him.

Doesn’t Jesus tell us to care for the poor
and welcome the strangers in our midst?

It isn’t just Trump’s hatefulness — it is his policies:
The Wall
The ban on Muslims entering America
tax policies that will benefit the super rich.

I think about how Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love our God with all our heart, mind and strength. And to love our neighbor as ourselves.

To me this means voting for a woman who respects all of us:
Hillary Clinton.
