Regarding the letter: “Trump’s past sins offer him a chance for redemption” (Jan. 12): President Donald Trump and associates tie themselves to the Bible, all the while taking actions that are anti-Christian. Examples include the treatment of immigrant children, climate-change denial, pollution regulation rollbacks, encouraging homophobia, xenophobia, race baiting, hate mongering, and toadying up to brutal dictators. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus encouraged compassion, kindness and humility, and acceptance of everyone, regardless of origin.
The Bible offers encouragement to all who suffer from Trump’s actions and to the rest of us who are disgusted with his policies and behavior. Trump’s policies and the attitude of his GOP supporters are nauseating.
