Dear Trump Supporter,

THE BIGGEST LIE: WE ELECTED CHRISTIANS
When I was hungry, you canceled my food stamps
When I was thirsty, you diverted lead & coal into my water
When I was sick, you tripled my insurance rates
When I was naked, you raped me & blamed me because I was naked.
When I was in prison, you enslaved me to corporations
When I was a stranger, with brown skin you deported me
From the lonely, you took away social programs
From the elderly, you took away meals & medicine
From the workers, you took away legal protections
From the young, you took away school funding
From the victims, you took away shelter
Instead of diversity, you encourage intolerance
Instead of caring, you encourage isolation
Instead of equity, you encourage military excess
When the 1% have ground us into the dust, taken all of our money, and let us die for lack of insurance…who will they feed upon?

Did you vote for Donald Trump because you appreciated his commitment to his Christian faith, because you felt he lived a Christ-like life? If your answer is “yes,” please do America a favor and sit out the next few elections…because this President is more Pharisee than Christian…and you’re unable to grasp that truth. He’s the living embodiment of what Gandhi meant when he said: “Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
A true Christian wouldn’t accept cutting social programs in order to finance a 10% increase in defense spending. They wouldn’t tolerate the racism and bigotry which defines and drives the Trump Administration. Nor would they tolerate excluding travelers from predominantly Muslim countries out of fear and ignorance. That’s not Christianity; that’s just about the worst sort of hypocrisy imaginable.
If you voted for Donald Trump because of your conviction that his being President would mean FINALLY having a REAL Christian in the White House…you have problems greater than you could possibly know. You might want to start with your own twisted, hypocritical theology. You can stake no claim to knowing anything of compassion, kindness, tolerance, service…or any of the other teachings of Jesus Christ. You’re as much a Christian as I am a Nobel Literature laureate.
Hang on, Ethel; from what I’m hearing, karma can be a real bitch…and you’re about to find out that voting for Donald Trump will cost you in ways you never imagined.
Nice work, America.
