Morning Joe's Sermon

Joe Scarborough, co-host of the MSNBC show "Morning Joe," offered some thoughts on President Donald Trump and Jesus. What seemed to particularly upset Scarborough was the so-called "Values Voter Summit" welcoming Trump, Steve Bannon, and others as speakers over the weekend. As I warned last year in my latest book (Vote Your Conscience: Party Must Not Trump Principles), Christians cannot in good faith embrace the values of Trump.

'Morning Joe' may not be a normal place to find a sermon, but this is still a good one. Here is the key passage:

"Some things cannot be debated. You look in Matthew and go through the Beatitudes, every single Beatitude, you go through Jesus's teaching, what he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon of the Mount. Go read it. None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way, it seems, to thumb his nose at all conventions, including the basics of the Beatitudes."

Amen!
