Trump Weaponizes the Word

And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. ~ Matthew 18:5-6

Stephen Colbert had a great piece of exegesis:

Note on featured image: Baby-snatching Trump Cartoon by Rob Rogers, former Cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette who was fired for this (among other) cartoons critical of Trump, the publisher defended the firing on grounds that, “He’s [Rogers] just become too angry.”

Consider this post an invitation, an invitation to comment and collaborate, in an open-ended sort of way, so please share your...whatever it is that's on your mind: thoughts, ideas, greetings, angst/irritation, inspiration, confusion, query, rant, salutation, data/research, meme, epigram, exposition or epiphany -- because I'm all about the synergy and solidarity. ~ JE
