The MAGA Bible


Reading time – 47 seconds  .  .  .

Whether you are a bible-thumper or a critic of bible-thumpers; whether you think of yourself as a Christian in good standing, an occasional Christian or a non-Christian; whether you’ve wondered how evangelical Christians could consistently support a president and legislators who routinely espouse and do anti-Christian things; whether you fret or roll eyes over anyone declaring themselves to be “the chosen one;” you must read John Pavlovitz’s stunning piece, Excerpts From The MAGA Bible. Do that now.

Final Note

Cameron Kasky

We kill around 100 people per day with guns – seven in Odessa, TX and five in Elkmont, AL this week, and the week is just half over. Ten were shot at a high school football game in Mobile, AL on Saturday. And nothing that might make things safer will change because .  .  .  you know why.

Cameron Kasky, student survivor of the horrific Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, FL a year and a half ago wrote this:

“I just want people to understand what happened and understand that doing nothing will lead to nothing. Who’d have thought that concept was so difficult to grasp?”

David Hogg

What is true remains true:

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got.

So, when we don’t do anything to stop the shooting and bleeding, we just keep on bleeding and dying.

Fellow Douglas High School shooting survivor David Hogg has left Parkland, FL and is attending Harvard, but his college studies haven’t and won’t stop him and his Parkland pals from continuing their quest to stop gun violence. Click here to donate and save the lives of some school kids.

    I think you are exactly right.

    I think Cameron Kasky is right and continues to do the right things by publicly speaking out and writing about this problem.

    I think David Hogg is right to continue speaking out against gun violence while moving on and continuing his life and his education.

    I think ALL of the Parkland, FL survivors and all of the other survivors of the myriad of mass shootings around the country who have chosen to speak out against the continuing gun violence are doing the right thing by trying to educate the general public.

    They are all right and they are all doing the right things, even those who survived but can’t muster the nerve to speak put publicly.

    But all of the people who keep us stuck in this murderous quagmire, regardless of age or sex or their part of the country or their religion (or lack thereof) or sexual orientation or color or national origin ARE WRONG.

    They need to convince their state lawmakers and the Federal lawmakers that existing laws and their enforcement are WHOLLY INADEQUATE! Some of them, I think, are downright WRONG!

    The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America was written 250 years ago by very wise men. But with all of their collective wisdom they could not foresee the time when they wouldn’t have to fight off Indians, when they wouldn’t have to hunt and kill for food or when they wouldn’t have to be their own militia (since we now have the largest and most powerful armed forces in the world to protect us). The 2nd Amendment long ago outlived its usefulness or our need for it.

    STOP the gun violence! STOP the sale of army-style automatic and semi-automatic weapons! STOP the sale/availability of large capacity magazines! And maybe, just maybe, reinstate the laws that allow the states to do to those who dispense death to be put to death! (I never thought the time would come that I would say such a thing, but it has come and I am suggesting such action.)

    May God Bless America!
