In God we trust but not anymore

 

 

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”― Mahatma Gandhi

In America there is a guaranteed freedom of religion that allows every man, woman and child to worship their own God without fear, intimidation or persecution. Your place of worship is sacrosanct and should be entered into without fear of being searched, scanned, shot or ridiculed.

In an alternative reality “Trump world” every church, temple, synagogue, mosque, pool hall, bus station, library, book store and even whore house would have armed guards stationed at the entrance way.

According to this line of thinking catholic priests, Jewish rabbis, Muslim Imams, and Protestant ministers would have had adequate training to not only defend their flocks of believers but also vanquish a demented hate monger.

In such a situation the opening song for the congregation to chant would be “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.”

The president’s apparent lack of concern for the horrific loss of life this past weekend at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill on Saturday appears to lack substance since his main concern lies with the upcoming mid term election in the United States.

Some Jewish leaders  have asked Trump to not come to Pittsburgh until he has publicly denounced his white nationalism. 

“Saturday’s massacre is not the first act of terror you incited against a minority group in our country,”

“President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you stop targeting and endangering all minorities.”

Trump voiced his outrage against the action but when asked about doing something against the National Rifle Associations ‘s stand on assault rifles he was dismissive and non-committal.

Many people blame God for the ills in the country but in this instance the Congresses’ lack of spine in confronting the current president is the real culprit.

The upcoming mid-term election may topple Trump’s unchecked monopoly in the Oval Office or it may continue his reign of terror for a few more years. — gc

    • Totally agree with you Lois. The voting booth is the place where dreams my become political reality if the electorate will get and vote. If not then God help the U.S.A. And yes it is scary Lois.

  1. Those who voted for Trump should be hanging their heads in shame. It’s been a long and painful two years. Outdated gun laws, widespread Murder and a government hell-bent on White Supremacism and .Corruption!

  2. From afar I feel for your communities and cannot understand how arms or arming ordinary folk can be a solution.

    You write with such clarity and I hope most ordinary Americans can also vote with a clear understanding of what needs to be done to prevent such division and intolerance that can become so destructive.
