Your vote reflects your character

I am speechless.

I am way less concerned with how you treat people in public than who you vote for when you vote for a political party that marginalizes the poor, the refugee, the disabled, and people with black and brown skin. When you vote for people who refuse to condemn white nationalism and racist rhetoric.

Your vote reflects what you believe when no one is watching.

Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me. -Matthew 25:45

“If the church’s only (or main) purpose is to be a moral watchdog, dealing out shame to those who don’t measure up to some standards (usually involving sexuality) while giving others a free pass (usually when it comes to economic injustice), then the church is going to die.”

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28
