Weeping Over Washington

When have you seen despair give birth to hope? What “midwife” made the difference? Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1280).

Tonight Donald Trump in a stump speech said that in the future when he is president we will once again be able to say “Merry Christmas” in a public forum. He said that when he is president it will be acceptable to be Christian again. That is music to my ears. I am sick and tired of living in America and finding myself curtailed in the affirmation of my faith except within the narrow confines of delimited arenas. Such a view of Christianity – of any religion – hobbles it and makes it in a real sense unlivable as a faith. Such a view yields total credence to the unrealistic and one-dimensional view of religion ascribed to by religiously ignorant materialists. I think those who wrote the Constitution would be shocked to find that the document redacted any religion from the public square under the purported banner of freedom – heavy irony indeed.

That said, I will not support Donald Trump, but instead vote for Bernie Sanders on Tuesday. That is because I realize that Donald Trump is a genius at currying favor. He knows just what notes to play to endear even those carrying burning hatred in their hearts . He says he’s a Christian, but the majority of his speeches are completely foreign to the spirit of Christianity. I choose to vote for a Jew who has fought for migrant farm workers and decline to vote for a snake-oil Christian.
