Happy Birthday, Mr. President.

Watching the impeachment hearings, listening to Trump apologists wrap themselves in my Christian faith, the above quote feels like a cleansing shower.  

I hope Nikki Haley is right and Donald Trump will become irrelevant in Republican politics.  I can't imagine any person of true faith could listen to Donald Trump address those "special people" who stormed the Capitol and left 5 people dead, telling them "we love you," and feel good.

I like the two-party system, and think Donald Trump has done long-term damage to the Party of Lincoln, which is unfortunate. I long for the days when we could discuss policy, and not whether or not it's a good thing for a President to applaud his supporters for ambushing an opposition campaign bus on the highway. If you really want to "make America great again," let your Christian faith lead you back to Abe.

  1. That bus ambush was just awful! Other countries are watching us. I have a few international friends see that the US Democracy has gone down the last 4 years. I sure hope things get better for us. We need good moral values back. Today I got to Bible journal with my grands and we worked on Corinthians 13. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Praying still for our country.

    1. Oh, Susan, that is beautiful! I always hear that verse in regards to love and marriage, but it works for governance, too, and illustrates how badly Donald Trump served us. Thank you for encouraging me to look at the familiar in a new way.
