Why I’ve Stepped Back From Certain People

John Pavlovitz sums up perfectly the relationship effect of the current Presidency:

The separation you feel and the distance you are experiencing is for good reason. You know why you’re here right now. This isn’t a capricious response to some minor moment of misunderstanding, not some flippant mood swing triggered by a singular blowup. This is the slow, steady, and devastating realization that you and some people you have lived life alongside—aren’t morally compatible.

This bears repeating…we aren’t morally compatible.

I’m reminded of an article in the New York Times that I read yesterday about a conservative county in Florida who have been adversely affected by the government shutdown.

Here’s the punchline:

“I voted for him, and he’s the one who’s doing this,” she said of Mr. Trump. “I thought he was going to do good things. He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.”

He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.

He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.

He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.

Ciao.
