This is in response to the letter “Un-Christian Democrats.” (Press & Dakotan, Feb. 25)
As a Republican, I am also looking for some answers. The attack on refugees from my Republican leaders is deadly; children have died in our care. Jesus’ family fled to Egypt shortly after his birth to escape certain death. Christ himself was a refugee.
The attack on the free press is deadly. A reporter had a bone saw taken to him and our Republican leaders did nothing to condemn this action or seek justice from the country responsible.
Many political leaders around the world assault and murder their political rivals and are being praised by some of my Republican leaders.
Being pro-life must continue after birth to the poor, brown and even the ones from the “S-hole countries” in Africa, and many of my Republican policies don’t live up to that.
Christianity is based on the life of Jesus Christ, and He never held a political position. Many of the teachings of Jesus Christ seem to be in direct conflict with my Republican party: judge not or you will be judged; if you live by the sword you will die by the sword; love your enemies … the list can go on. Perhaps when looked at honestly, it helps to be Un-Christian when Republican, too.
