I have a request to make of all candidates for president of the United States who have declared themselves followers of Christ, and of those who support these men and women under the banner of preserving our Christian-American civilization.
Please stop calling yourselves Christian.
What you call yourself should have at least a nodding acquaintance with your actions. Jesus Christ teaches us to turn the other cheek, not to slap it. He preached that the hungry should be fed, the homeless sheltered and the sinner forgiven. He did not advocate throwing the poor out onto the street to starve, nor did he advise us to revile them for suffering misfortunes which could strike any of us through no fault of our own.
