I have a question for you. I hope our years together in the faith would bring you to honour me with considering this plain question… although it may make you uncomfortable. I am deeply troubled by the diseased state of Christianity right now, I’m hoping that you can illuminate how it got here.
Tell me if there is any validity to this perspective that I hold: radical religiosity is dangerous. It leads to all sorts of harmful events from the Crusades to 9/11. But extremism is only half-fueled by radical/violent belief… the other half comes from moderates standing by and feeding the flames with their silence.
The rise of Donald Trump is particularly on the shoulders of the Christians, and despite scandal after inept scandal, the unshakable support of the church allows him to cling to power. As the impeachment process grinds on via a mountain of evidence, I ask you: Why have you remained silent?

Brett Kavanaugh, while on trial for membership in the highest, most powerful court on Earth: acted like a child.
Any adult in the room, in the face of such serious allegations, should have said: “Take as much time as you need, investigate this fully. I am fully innocent so I am confident the investigation will prove the same.” Sat back, and let justice do its thing.
But that is not, in fact, what he did. Instead, he cried, pouted, and literally had a tantrum before the United States Senate. Then they gave him supreme power over hundreds of millions of lives. For the rest of his life.
When was the last time you cried at a job interview and got the job? Yes. That happened. And it’s just a footnote in the dumpster fire of American politics in 2019.
Judges Need to be Stable
His performance was precisely the antithesis of how a judge should behave.
