MORE THAN A WOMAN!

The POTUS hit a trifecta this past week, by publicly insulting 3 black female journalists.BE A MAN RESPECT WOMEN

The women – Abby Phillip, April Ryan and Yamiche Alcindor – earned his contempt apparently just for asking him questions. Mr Trump called one of Ms Phillip’s questions “stupid,” described Ms Ryan as “a loser” and brushed off Ms Alcindor, saying her question was “racist.” These are professional reputable women, being debased and bullied by a non-professional POTUS, how disgraceful! One would normally expect a leader to exude qualities of honesty, kindness and treating everyone equally. Not so with the current malignant narcissist in office.

As a Christian, Seminary student and Citizen, I simply cannot remain silent regarding the discrimination towards women from the current POTUS. We know from scripture that Jesus himself while on this earth, treated women with honor, value, dignity and respect. Jesus elevated the status of women when historically at the time women were generally discriminated upon. For Christ, women have an intrinsic value, equal to that of men. Jesus said, “…at the beginning the Creator made them male and female” (Matt 19:4; cf. Gen.1:27) Women are created in the image of God just as men are. Like men they have self-awareness, personal freedom, a measure  of self-determination and personal responsibility for their actions. As a Christian, I am ashamed for the POTUS in his disregard and abuse of female citizens. As a nation, we should not accept such behavior from the POTUS, and he needs to be called out on it, not expecting such disregard to be tolerated. He needs to get his act together, or as a juvenile he needs to permanently stay in the time-out chair. Call the White House at 202-456-1414 and voice your strong concern and support for women. Let the POTUS know this is not acceptable and truth be told, not Christian.

  1. Bullying, discrimination against any human being wether for gender, race, or religion are not acceptable. Even God had forbidden them through all his revealed laws wether Judaism , Christianity or Islam.
    Quran said “o you who believed let not any group mock other as they might be better than them nor women from women as they might be better than them do not defame one another nor call each other with a hurtful nicknames. Sinful is a bad name after the faith and whoever doesn’t repent those are the evildoers”
    In another verse :
    “whoever do good works wether of male or female and is believer we will surely grant them to live a good life and we shall recompense them their rewards according to the best of what they used to do “
    Which explains the equity between men and women

  2. It certainly is true that Trump thinks and acts in ways that conflict with the teaching and example of Jesus. It seems clear that he doesn’t care about Christian principles, so appealing to them isn’t likely to affect him. What puzzles me is that many people who do care about Christian principles support his presidency. Why do you think that’s so? Is it greed? Is it fear of liberalism, or of change? Is it ignorance? And how can we speak to those people?

  3. Your call to action at the end is helpful. I also really enjoyed reading your treatment of Jesus care for females and all people. The picture you chose for this post is of interest to me. Sometimes the tactic of defining masculinity using the “real men…” can be problematic and reinforce toxic masculinity or the gender binary. At first I was put off by the image but on further reflection I think in this case the message is positive. Just thought I’d share for consideration.

I fully agree that Jesus’ approach in treating women with honor and respect must be followed up by all the believers.
    Thank you for your post.
