    See sin for what it is — mosque shootings, Catholic sex abuse, college admissions scandal, hate tweets — and dare to live a new world into being.
    Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg caught the attention of many in the religious world recently when he shared his views on the importance of the “religious left” in America. “When I go to church," Buttigieg said last month on "On Real Time with Bill Maher," "what I hear a lot about is protecting the downtrodden, and standing up the immigrant, and being skeptical of authority sometimes, and making sure you look after the poor and the prisoner. I mean, to me, that’s the sort of thing that the religious left, often without much attention, has been arguing for my whole lifetime.

    What he should be hearing about is Jesus Christ instead of his own attempts at righteousness

    But the Left got no time for that of course

    Actually the Christian right are hypocrites. Very unchristian like, but they know it. Look at holy roller Sarah Sanders, she lies like Tramp.

    Penny's a good little sponge. She hates who she's been told to hate.

    Live one's own life according to one's beliefs; set a good example. Do good and stand between evil and its intended victims. Pray and meditate.

    Just the usual.

    Look at their leader.

    And make no mistake, Donald Trump IS the leader of the Christian right.

    Donald Trump is a role model for the children of the Christian right.

    These are NOT the same Christians I grew up with. Today's radical and racist Christian right is nothing like traditional Christianity.

    You wouldn't know "traditional Christianity" if it fell on your head, and neither would Penny
