Racism makes no sense - a warning to "Christian" voters.

Its been said that if you keep doing the same thing over and over again, and it does not bring about the result you desire, then you might want to stop doing it.

Which leads me to ask "why do white racists in the USA keep doing the same thing over and over again, when their desired result of an  "an all white, 'Christian' America" has never come to pass, (nor will it, sans massive violence, civil war, brutality and genocide).?

It's because RACISM MAKE NO SENSE.

RACISM ---

divides people rather than uniting them

destroys rather than building up

creates fear rather than hope

is rooted in hatred rather than in  love

is based in anger rather than in a desire for peace

depends upon violence to achieve its ends

.........................  and this list could go one and on.


IN THE FACE OF THIS ---

Racism makes no sense, and racists are ignorant, ill-informed, unwilling to learn,  or just plain stupid. Do not despise them, but by all means have pity on them, and pray for them.

BUT FOR CHRISTIANS THE STAKES ARE HIGHER.

In our system of belief

All people are created in the image and likeness of God.

All people are invited to fellowship with God in and through Jesus the Christ, who we name as LORD.

THIS MEANS

that Christians do not have the liberty of supporting, endorsing, or voting for candidates for political office whose views (covert or overt) are rooted in racism, nationalism,  white supremacy, nativism or chauvinism.  SUCH VIEWS ARE IN  OPPOSITION TO THE WILL OF GOD AS WE KNOW IT IN HOLY SCRIPTURE.

Vote that way if you must, but be prepared to explain your vote to the Holy God on Judgment Day.
