The Golden Rule
When Norman Rockwell painted this over 50 years ago, if anyone had even mentioned that we should register people of a particular religion, people would’ve said, “What are you, some kind of Nazi? We fought against those pigs in the big one. My brother liberated a concentration camp. He saw what those Nazis did to people. We’ll never do that in America!” Sadly, Donald Trump does want to do that in America. His nomination of the far-right racist Sessions to be his Attorney General and of appointing Breitbart.com honcho Steve Bannon as a top advisor tells even the terminally stupid that something’s up, and it’s not completely kosher. Trump called for us to stigmatise Muslims during his campaign. Well, who’d be next? Yes… for they wouldn’t stop there, y’ know… the Yahoos would scream for more blood. That’s why Trump’s call to register Muslims is evil. Call things for what they are. If we do that, we deserve no freedom… “He who gives up freedom for security, deserves neither”. However, you can clutch your guns… that “freedom” will stand. I need to find a corner to be sick in…
Orthodox people… reflect on this… the rightwing konvertsy all voted for Trump, they all support the Muslim Registry idea… and they want to spread their perverted inquisitorial “faith” throughout the Church. We not only have a country to fight for, we have a Church to defend against drooling rightwing fanatics. Shall we meet the test?
