What Would Jesus of Valdosta Say to Donald TrumpMarch 03, 2016
I remain greatly troubled by the bigotry and hateful rhetoric of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. Adding to my concerns, many Christians are voting for him. We cannot claim to follow the Prince of Peace who taught us to love our neighbors and then turn around and vote for someone who preaches exactly the opposite.
My latest column tackles this issue. The piece, What Would Jesus of Valdosta Say to Donald Trump, ran today at Red Letter Christians. In it, I build on the prophetic imagination of Clarence Jordan to offer a critique of Trump and his politics.
