By Mark Y. A. Davies

To my white evangelical Christian friends,
Since you are one of the groups most strongly supporting Trump, could you please clarify some things for me?
- Who would Jesus torture?
- Who would Jesus tell to go f*** themselves?
- What women would Jesus call fat pigs?
- What women would Jesus treat like s***?
- Who would Jesus "bomb the s*** out of?
- Which families (including children) of bad people would Jesus go after and kill?
- Where would Jesus build walls to keep people out?
- Which refugees would Jesus reject?
- Which workers would Jesus refuse to pay?
- Which people would Jesus refuse to rent apartments to?
- Which people would Jesus want to punch in the face?
- Which people would Jesus think deserve to get roughed up?
- Which women would Jesus call "Miss Piggy?"
- Which people of other religions would Jesus discriminate against?
- Which 11 million people would Jesus deport?

I know the Bible is important to you, so it would be helpful if you could please ground your answers in scripture.
Peace to you."

Via Sri Prem Baba – Awaken Love / Flower of the Day: 10/03/16:

“Life in this body has a very short expiration date. The most valuable thing a human soul in evolution has is time. When we least expect it, the game is over. And what have we done with our time? Many waste their time with useless things. They think that before they can relax and enjoy life, they have to struggle and work hard. My vision is different; you can be happy now, even without having conquered the world. But this is only possible when you have given meaning to your life and you are aware of your life’s purpose.”

Buddhism is very personal. . . . It’s about developing what is mostly deeply human in all of us.
