Christians – how do you treat women? I don’t address this just to men, but to women as well. We often say the “right things”. But when it comes right down to it, do we do what we say? Or do we live by the old adage, “Do as I say, not as I do”? There are so many reasons to ask this question. But the thing that has me asking today is two things I read in the news.
Both have to do with our President. It seems when Trump open a hand to offer an olive branch, he just can’t help using that hand to slap someone. In this case, Susan B. Anthony was the olive branch. The slap was to Michelle Obama and, oddly enough, Susan B. Anthony.
And so, the question has to do with whether or not we live up to what we claim to believe. Do we find that kind of behavior acceptable? Is it even normal? And if we agree it’s not, why does it still seem to be acceptable for this president? What kind of precedent does he set and what kind of message do we send when we silently support it?
