Where your mouth is

Each of the Republican candidates has raised tens or hundreds of millions of dollars for their campaigns. At the end of the primaries, they will have a national convention that will be a hundred million dollar party to accomplish nothing more than what has already been done over the past several months of primary votes in each state and which could be done for $0 by the head of the GOP on YouTube.

Each of these men has told the people of the US they are shining examples of Christianity. But with all of this fundraising, how much has any of them raised to feed, clothe, house or provide medicine for those in need?

We will work with each other, we will work side by side
We will work with each other, we will work side by side
And we’ll guard each one’s dignity and save each one’s pride
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
They will know we are Christians by our love

They’ll know we are Christians by Carolyn Arends

It’s not that the Democrats have done much better. The problem is that if you want to claim a religion as the central pillar of your political philosophy, but you can’t recognize or demonstrate the single core principal of that religion, then every word out of your mouth is a lie to me and you will never have my vote.

How can you expect me to put my trust in someone who can’t live what they claim to be most sacred? If that’s negotiable, what isn’t?
