On God and Partisan Political Religion

Open Letter to Evangelical voters supporting any and all Trump candidates:

Are you going to sacrifice your children along with our children to the Imagined God of racism, violence, cruelty and persecution?

Your choice is clear.
You as choosers must own your own choosing.
You cannot blame the imagined evil formulated by your presidential hero;
the imagined evil of others;
the imagined evil of broadcasters;
your own imagined evil.

Your own evil choosing is not something others have imagined for you.
Your anointings of politicians and calling it the ritual of the god of your beliefs will come back to haunt you.

We will blame you for the rest of your lives.
We will hold you accountable for the rest of your lives.
We will hold you in contempt for the rest of your lives.

Your religious system will become a hiss and byword to the rest of the world.
Your religious system is already careening to an inevitable irrelevance in a world seeking to heal itself.
You have no solution, no compassion and certainly no merciful intent.

You are losing your own best and brightest children.
They will neither thank nor honor you in some future holy moment.

    Your best post yet. I fear there are too many of them to make any difference though. Religious hate is rampant in our society and it has been unleashed such that it may never be put back in the bottle. Even if trump is impeached and shamed, I fear a civil war at the very moment it happens.
