Ask Trump: What would Je­sus do?

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Opinion -

This is di­rected at all my evan­gel­i­cal Chris­tian friends who sup­port our cur­rent pres­i­dent.

Do you think he ever asks: “What would Je­sus do?”

As it re­lates to our treat­ment of folks seek­ing asy­lum at our borders — cramped quar­ters, of­ten a lack of food, wa­ter and proper fa­cil­i­ties, separation of chil­dren from their par­ents — that question ob­vi­ously is not be­ing asked.

It should. For that im­por­tant is­sue, as well as the en­vi­ron­ment, treat­ing those with whom you dis­agree, even your en­e­mies, with re­spect, and more.

As one of the most im­por­tant po­lit­i­cal bases for the cur­rent pres­i­dent, you should in­sist on it. Oth­er­wise, are you be­ing true to what you pro­fess as a core paramount be­lief? Have you redi­rected your al­le­giance to him and not Him?

Those are the im­por­tant questions in all this besides the one that seems to be ignored: “What would Je­sus do?”

You must agree that if we were to faith­fully follow the answer to that question in vir­tu­ally all we do, the world would be a bet­ter place.

As would our coun­try’s leader.
