Christian Silence

If you're Christian, you don't have the luxury of remaining silent. If you are remaining silent, you don't have the right to call yourself "Christian." Speak up! Condemn racism and fascist or stop pretending to be anything other than just another rotten horrible person. SILENCE IS A SIN! I'm ashamed of "Christians". Most of them are really just terrible people.
I woke up this morning to news reports with video of the President defending a racist mob that marched with torches while chanting Nazi slogans, right before assaulting and attacking a bunch of peaceful counter-protesters and killing an innocent person. If you were/are a Trump supporter and aren't speaking out against racism and fascism today, you might as well be the terrorist scumbag that drove over those people.

If Christianity were true, your soul would be in danger. That black school teacher that was nearly beaten to death in the parking garage, my Christianity told me that he was made in the image of God! My Bible says Christ will return and look at you and say, "Depart from me, yet cursed, into everlasting fire.... For I was hungry, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not." Then you will offer your defense, 'But, Lord, I never saw you!' And he will say, "Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me." And he'll add, 'I was run over by a Nazi and murdered in the streets of Charlottesville and beaten by racists in a parking garage, and you didn't even mourn or so much as openly condemn the people who did this.' (Cf. Matthew 25:30-45)

If you gave a damn about Christ, you'd be speaking up. If you were serious about your faith, you would have been standing between the Nazis and the people they were terrorizing. God damn you and your "Christianity!"
