White Christians Who Voted for Donald Trump: Fix This. Now. | John Pavlovitz

We Christians like to talk about Hell a lot, so let’s talk about Hell a little. Yesterday, in the very first few daylight hours after Donald Trump’s election victory it began:

Near San Francisco, a home in Noe Valley flew a nazi flag where kids walk by to get to school.

A white middle school student brought a Trump sign to school and told a black classmate it was time for him to get “back in place”.

A gay New York City man getting on a bus was told that he should “Enjoy the concentration camps, faggot!”

The NYU Muslim Students Association found the word “Trump!”scrawled on the door of their prayer room.

A female seminary student was stopped at a coffee shop with the words, “Smile sweetheart, we beat the cunt.”

Parents of children of color spent the day picking up their children early from elementary, middle, and high schools across the country because they were inundated with slurs and harassment and unable to study.

A group of Hispanic kids in Raleigh were taunted by white children, telling them they were “going back to Mexico.”

This is the personal Hell we’ve unleashed upon our people this week. 

And if you’re a white Christian and you voted for Donald Trump: You need to fix this. Now.

  2. As a U.S. Army Veteran this will be the saddest Veteran’s Day ever for me. This tyrant is tearing apart the country I pledged to defend. I Love America. I am not leaving and I will fight for the Land of my Birth.
    However let us approach this from a Biblical standpoint. I Love Jesus. One of the many reason I Love the Lord Jesus is that he called ’em as he saw ’em. Did not try to sugar coat anything. This is how he refers to Herod. As a “Sly Fox.” Jesus knew the deal. Probably the Herod who executed his cousin John the Baptist.
    Luke 13:32-34
    The Voice (VOICE)
    Jesus: 32 You can give that sly fox this message: “Watch as I cast out demons and perform healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I’ll reach My destination. 33 But for today and tomorrow and the next day, I have to continue My journey, for no prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem.”
    34 O Jerusalem! O Jerusalem! You kill the prophets and you stone the messengers who are sent to you. How often I wanted to gather in your children as a hen gathers in her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing to come to Me.
    It also troubles me that many who voted for Trump live in the so-called Bible Belt. Well what Bible are you reading. You do know that Jesus was a Jew who live in a multi-cultural polytheistic society and no where in the Gospels where he is attacking his Greek, Roman or Egyptian neighbors or devaluing their belief systems. In fact Jesus saved most of his most scathing remarks for his fellow Jews/Hebrews specifically the Pharisees and Sadducees. Here is where Jesus got angry with hypocrites.
    Matthew 21:12-13
    New International Version (NIV)
    Jesus at the Temple
    12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them,“‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.

  3. People do things in Jesus name, but they are not his followers. REAL Christians do not do these types of things. Blaming Christians for the actions of non-Christians is unfair. Also blaming Donald Trump for the actions of others is not fair either. I have heard him speak over 20 times and he has never instructed anyone to do any of the things that were done. in fact he has reached out to people of color and those individuals who are here legally. That’s like blaming President Obama for the deaths of the officers in Dallas. Mr. Obama at times did not support the police and has spoken negatively about them, but he in no way suggested murder. Now it is time for REAL Christians to stand up!

  4. I am, Christians, born /raise New York/United State America, Ethnicity, Latina via Puerto Rico, Beautiful complexion Brown.
    I doubt it very much if this was done by Christians, it was done by whites who have not respect for themselves or anyone else. How Sad.

  5. I find this article disturbing. Many people voted for Trump, Females, blacks, Latinos, LGBT, and various other groups. I find it interesting that Christians are so often blamed for the woes of the world. Obviously the Nazi flag is a symbol of hate or oppressions. How are Christians to blame for that? Was the white middle school kid a Christian that spoke to the black kid? Don’t know! For anyone to say “enjoy the concentration camps” is absolutely wrong. Were they Christian? Scribbling the word Trump on the wall in a mosque is disrespectful and wrong. Were they Christian? Anyone making a statement “We beat the #$^% sweetheart” is full of hate. Was he a Christian? How were Christians placing slurs on middle school kids. White kids taunting Mexican children telling they are going back to Mexico. Were they Christian? You show no evidence in your article that this was Christian people. What you are doing is trying to bring disunity by blaming the Christians for the election. This is a form of bigotry, which is the same thing you hate. Maybe your the hater by trying to get people to hate other groups such as white Christians. The title of this article indicate a racism tone.
    Are you a racist?

    Christians were not responsible for the election of Donald Trump. The People of the United States are responsible. The people that voted for Trump and the people that did not come out to vote for the other candidates. Why didn’t your article have a title like “When People Don’t Vote There is Inequality and Hatred”.

    Just some thoughts.
