Right-wing evangelical “Christians” seem to be sticking by Donald Trump no matter how brutal his actions are toward others, and without a thought to his use of vulgar words. Or that he called himself “The Chosen One,” which in any actual Christian’s mind would be considered to be blasphemous. Trump’s policies are cruel, and his base seems to be fine with that.

Case in point: Trump has ripped families apart with his attacks on asylum seekers. And yet, you don’t hear anything from his “pro-life” evangelical base about that.

The social justice branch of the United Methodist Church is located near the Capitol, and they decided to change up a Bible verse in order to address Trump’s cruel policy of ripping migrant children from their parents’ arms at the border. In a reference to Matthew 25:35, the sign reads, “I was a stranger and you ripped my child from me. Wait a second…”

The real verse says, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

Now, that sign was put on display last year, but the church has continued its efforts.

Rev. Susan Henry-Crowe spoke out against Attorney General Jeff Sessions after he announced the policy:

The Christ we follow would have no part in ripping children from their mothers’ arms or shunning those fleeing violence. It is unimaginable that faith leaders even have to say that these policies are antithetical to the teachings of Christ.”

What an amazing church. The trouble is, though, that we have to sift through the right-wing churches in order to find the ones who are just, ethical, and moral. But, at least we know they are out there fighting the good fight. Can I get an Amen?
