Jesus Christ was a brown Jew in the Middle East, conceived out of wedlock in an arguably interracial if not interspecies (deity and human) relationship, raised by his mother and stepfather in place of his absent father.  He may not have had a Y chromosome.  He spent his early youth as a refugee in Egypt, where his family no doubt survived initially on handouts from the wealthy (You think they kept that gold, frankincense, and myrrh from the wise men?  Hell no, they sold that stuff for food and lodging).  He later returned with his parents to their occupied homeland and lived in poverty.

The religion of Jesus’s people has no concept of a permanent hell and instructed its priests on how to induce miscarriages.  Jesus explicitly rejected the concept of disability as a divine punishment.  He spoke out against religious hypocrites.  He had enough respect for women to let his mother choose the time of his first miracle.  He blessed a same sex couple.  He told a rich man that he must give up his wealth to get to heaven, and also told a parable about a rich man suffering in agony in presumably Gehinnom (basically Purgatory) just to hammer the point home.  He told people to pay their taxes.  He declared “love your neighbor” to be one of the two commandments on which all laws hang.  He commanded his followers to help the poor.  He commanded them to help the sick and the needy.  He spent time with social outcasts.  He healed the servant of a high priest during his arrest rather than fighting back.  He was put to death by the occupying government because he was a political radical.

Trump and his administration are xenophobic, misogynistic, racist, fear-mongering, warmongering, tax-dodging, anti-Semitic, anti-choice, anti-welfare, anti-equal pay, anti-LGBTQIA+, anti-immigration, support tax cuts for the rich, support Citizen’s United, want to keep refugees out of this country, want to limit our ability to speak against the government, plan to abolish the Affordable Care Act, and they wrap all of that up behind a banner of “Christian family values.”  If you support them, you have no right to call yourself a follower of Christ.

If you didn’t google or visit news sites or read facebook posts or make tweets about the inauguration today, that’s awesome, well done!

And now you can take everything you didn’t do today and do it double for the Women’s March on Washington tomorrow, for the ol’ one-two punch.  

Make it a famous protest. Make it the most watched protest in the history of the world. And then for every new protest you see, read about it, watch it, google it, give hits to news stories about it. 

Make the fascists in power in this country blow a collective vein because why are they watching them? They’re meant to be scared of us!

Teach the news outlets and networks that you don’t give a shit about the president, and if they want your hits, they need to give protest a voice.

Trump’s press conference today held by Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, where they claimed that Trump had the largest inauguration turnout in history was nothing but authoritarian propaganda at work. 

Despite evidence (and estimates) to the contrary and photographic/first hand proof they are pushing out this claim. Then they are stating that anyone who says otherwise is a liar, and refused to take questions on the matter from the press. Do not ignore this, this was the first official as president and they made it clear what they’re going to be saying to the public these next 4-8 years and hold news organizations accountable when they report his baseless claims without question. Don’t let them make it easy to spread blatant propaganda.  

Kellyanne Conway: Trump White House offered ‘alternative facts’ on crowd size

ALTERNATIVE FACTS. That’s what they’re calling it.

*sneezes bullshit*
