10 reasons you can’t be a Christian and vote for Donald Trump

(Released date 11/11/2016 12:00 AM above date used to keep article at the top of news feed.)

Here are 10 reasons, centered around ideas central to the Christian: character, relationships and values:

1. He lacks compassion. The Bible says: “As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.” (Colossians 3:12)On this point, we could cite Mr. Trump’s many instances of inflammatory rhetoric against immigrants and Muslims, his record of discriminatory housing practices, his public cruelty to ex-spouses or his sensational and mean-spirited feuds with other celebrities as evidence of his lack of compassion. But consider a recent AP-GfK poll showing that among Republicans, he is largely believed to lack compassion. And bear in mind, these are the people most likely to view him favorably. Many of those voters polled expressed this was not a concern. But for Christians, an unrepentant lack of compassion suggests that the man does not seek to please God or lead according to His will.

2. He appeals to fear and anger. The Bible says: “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.”(1 John 4:18) The Bible says: “But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; and if you insult a brother or sister, you will be liable to the council; and if you say, ‘You fool,’ you will be liable to the hell of fire.” (Matthew 5: 22) The recent attacks in San Bernadino and Paris are undeniably troubling. Meanwhile, more Americans are finding the changing economy an increasingly hostile and unforgiving place. Americans’ fears are existential and not without warrant. But Christians are called to love without fear. Mr. Trump has chosen to make immigration and the economy central themes of his campaign and his rhetoric surrounding these issues consistently appeals to fear and anger, absent appeals to love. Most notoriously, he chose to characterize Hispanic immigrants as rapists. Regardless of our policy convictions around the place of undocumented immigrants, this broad characterization is cynically aimed to incite fear and anger. His recent endorsement by the white supremacist American Freedom Party is the fruit of this rhetoric. It is also a callous and hostile way to characterize people, some of whom are our brothers and sisters in Christ, all of whom are God’s children

3. He is enamored with “greatness” and ego, but has no concern for “goodness” or service. The Bible says: “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” (Matthew 5: 5-8) In The Narcissist Next Door, author Jeffrey Kluger suggests Trump is a classic narcissist. Some might say that running for office encourages this sort of thing. But narcissism might be the most dangerous condition for a Christian — without humility and self-effacement, we are incapable of modeling Jesus’ behavior, we allow no space for the Holy Spirit to bless our relationships, and we are unable to receive or revel in the goodness of God. Ask yourself the last time you saw a public expression of humility from Mr. Trump. Minister E.J. Christian, 68, wears a Donald J.

4. He lies — a lot. The Bible says: “Beware then of useless grumbling, and keep your tongue from slander; because no secret word is without result, and a lying mouth destroys the soul.” (Wisdom 1:11) According to Pulitzer Prize winning truth-checkers Politifact, which compares candidate statements to evidence, Trump’s statements are verifiably false 76 percent of the time. Among these is this infamous lie about 9/11: “I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as [the World Trade Center] was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.” Not only is this pattern of dishonesty troubling for religious believers, it should disturb any citizen contemplating a vote for the most powerful office on the planet. Lying was enough to get two presidents impeached. Christian or not, telling the truth less than one-quarter of the time while a candidate is the reddest of flags.

5. He is hostile to women. The Bible says: “But now you must get rid of all such things—anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive language from your mouth.” (Colossians 3:8) Trump’s feud with Fox News host Megyn Kelly is now the stuff of legend, but what prompted the tension initially were his documented remarks about women, which Kelly reiterated during the Aug. 6 GOP debate: “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.’” Trump has said the remarks were taken out of context.

How Australia Conquered Guns, and Why America Can't

Mental Illness, Mass Shootings, and the Politics of American Firearms Jonathan M. Metzl, MD, PhDcorresponding author and Kenneth T. MacLeish, PhD

Abstract
Four assumptions frequently arise in the aftermath of mass shootings in the United States: (1) that mental illness causes gun violence, (2) that psychiatric diagnosis can predict gun crime, (3) that shootings represent the deranged acts of mentally ill loners, and (4) that gun control “won’t prevent” another Newtown (Connecticut school mass shooting). Each of these statements is certainly true in particular instances. Yet, as we show, notions of mental illness that emerge in relation to mass shootings frequently reflect larger cultural stereotypes and anxieties about matters such as race/ethnicity, social class, and politics. These issues become obscured when mass shootings come to stand in for all gun crime, and when “mentally ill” ceases to be a medical designation and becomes a sign of violent threat.

Common Misperceptions
 Mass shootings by people with serious mental illness represent the
most significant relationship between gun violence and mental illness.
 People with serious mental illness should be considered dangerous.
 Gun laws focusing on people with mental illness or with a psychiatric
diagnosis can effectively prevent mass shootings.
 Gun laws focusing on people with mental illness or a psychiatric diagnosis
are reasonable, even if they add to the stigma already associated
with mental illness.
Evidence-Based Facts
 Mass shootings by people with serious mental illness represent less
than 1% of all yearly gun-related homicides. In contrast, deaths by
suicide using firearms account for the majority of yearly gun-related
deaths.
 The overall contribution of people with serious mental illness to violent
crimes is only about 3%. When these crimes are examined in detail,
an even smaller percentage of them are found to involve firearms

So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behavior. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!

"Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them. So we have catalogued nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office."

Rosalind Quarles Greene

Forget making America great again, or for that matter, any other slogan.

Hopkinsville native Rosalind Quarles Greene wants to unite the country, heal the hurts and the divisiveness and meet the needs of the citizens head-on.

“I want to be the president that’s going to work with the American people,” said Greene, a former Hopkinsville resident, a nurse and military veteran who’s campaigning for the nation’s top office.

“I want to be the president that’s going to work with the American people,” said Greene, a former Hopkinsville resident, a nurse and military veteran who’s campaigning for the nation’s top office.

Greene, who grew up in Hopkinsville but moved away in 1992, has already launched a website — rosalindgreene.com — and released a press announcement of her intentions to run for president in 2020. In the next two to three years, she plans to travel to all 50 states meeting with people and learning about their needs.

“I need for them to be able to trust I’m going to be working for them,” said Greene, a Democrat, explaining that it’s important for her to get to know the American people and to find out what problems are in each state.

That will take time, she said, noting that it will be no rush job. The tour will include her hometown of Hopkinsville and other parts of Kentucky, and after all her visits, Greene, who now lives in Woodbridge, Virginia, says she plans to assemble a task force and look at all the issues mentioned by people.

She’s never held an office before but is not without political experience. Greene, the daughter of the late Dorothy Ann Quarles, began helping with campaigns during her teen years and has attended three or four national conventions.

After she got out of the military, there was a time when she wanted to be a U.S. congresswoman. She enrolled in a public policy doctoral program at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

Her mother died. She was going through a divorce and working two jobs.

She was raising her children, and it was just not the right time to run for office.

Greene considered a run when Hilary Clinton was vying for the presidency.

“I said, ‘No, I am not going to run against her,’” she recalled.

But her children are independent now, married and doing well, and it’s time.

“I’m at a time when I can devote my time so I said, ‘This is the time. I’m going to do it,’” Greene recounted during a recent telephone interview.

She grew up in Hopkinsville and was one of 10 children of Dorothy Quarles.

Greene said she always knew she wanted to be in the medical field and take care of people. She worked for a while at Jennie Stuart Medical Center, attended Hopkinsville Community College, got her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville and was recruited to join the Army’s nurse corps.
