A little more than an hour after his all-caps “Happy Easter” greeting, President Trump showed once again that he neither understands nor cares about the resurrected one Christians celebrate today. His bigotry toward people of color should long ago have disqualified him from the support of anyone who considers Christian faith more than a label they wear on Sundays. But this–his racist assault on the Dreamers, who have widespread American support for the righteousness of their cause, is beyond the pale.
You cannot follow Christ and Trump. Choose.
Easter celebrates the rising from the dead of Jesus, a Middle Eastern man whose mother and foster father crossed borders to escape persecution; who was lost while traveling as a boy with his family, most likely in a caravan, to Jerusalem; and who told us to welcome the stranger. pic.twitter.com/Iva07truWG
