Where is the Church? Where are the Republicans? Blatant racist speech, thinly disguised calls to violence, open misogyny, and obvious untruths explode from Trump’s mouth in a shower of venom, but religious and political leaders act as if they don’t hear. They seem not to fear the fascist path of Trumpism.
Warnings of infrastructure failure have been unheeded for years but our leaders ignored them until forced to react by the poisoning of a large city. Flint is not alone, although the other poisoned cities are much smaller. We have money for war (some $115 million a day for Iraq/Syria) but little cash for keeping our citizens safe.
Every Republican leader should be speaking loudly against Trumpism and its poisonous rhetoric. Every house of worship should be ringing with condemnation of Trump and all that he stands for. What could possibly be keeping our leaders silent?
