Where is decency?

Where is decency? April 20, 2017

How long would you permit someone to abuse another, before you step up?
How long would you stay around someone telling racist jokes, before you walk away?
How long do you let a man make derogatory and sexist comments about women, before you say something?
How long would you watch a bully harass and abuse others, before you intercede?
How long do you remain silent when the weak and powerless are attacked and victimized by the powerful?
Why would you associate with racist, sexist, bigoted people?

I’m not talking about politics. I’m asking about common decency.
Where is your decency?
Decent people don’t remain  silent when others lose their rights, their health insurance or their dignity.
Decent Christians don’t choose politics over people.
Decent Christians don’t support politicians who systematically promote policies that hurt the poor or dismantle programs that help the less fortunate.
When did partisan politics replace our decency?
Some want government to reflect a morality of violence, aggression, scarcity, and oppression.
Others want government to reflect a morality that embraces diversity, inclusion, abundance,  justice, and charity for all.
Only one view represents a Biblical, Christian worldview.
When you approve of racism, sexism, bigotry and bullying; if you accept the government limiting the rights of others; if you think taxes should be spent on tools of war and not health care, education, libraries, roads and bridges; then the message of Christ is so foreign that it’s meaningless.
