Why I Pray for Trump—and Every President—to Fail

Jesus pursued his obsessive love for us by choosing the indignity of being human, then spending a lifetime serving and loving others, then choosing a death in which he gave his life and his body as the fuel for us to have eternal life—all the while having, but not using, the power and authority to save his life and become king.

That’s the reason why I pray for the failure of all the Trumps and Clintons and Obamas and Bushes—because their morality and their means of pursuing it is rebellion to God’s way for mankind to relate to one another.

The Myth of Hiroshima from Truman to Obama

I understand why most Americans—especially those who were alive at the time and had been devastated by the pain and confusion of war—aren’t really interested in pushing past the simplistic myth of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that has been preserved and propagated in textbooks, speeches, and movies through the years in order to look honestly at the facts.

But I’m disturbed and ashamed that most American Christians—including my former self—also refuse to question this myth.

Love Your Neighbor, or Mandate Tolerance?

Just yesterday, I mentioned on by personal Facebook page that I had added “transgender” to my list of terms that I wish I could block from my news feed. It’s neither the word nor the people it describes that sicken me, but rather the ignorant and inconsiderate attitudes that just about everyone displays when discussing the transgender bathroom issue.

And then this morning, here comes this story: U.S. Directs Public Schools to Allow Transgender Access to Restrooms. So, I guess “transgender” will be one of the key words in what promises to be the most cacophonous presidential campaign season in history.
