Particularly powerful quote from the above:

At times like these, Christians like to smile sweetly and say, “God is in control.”

No. God is not in control like that.

God didn’t vote for Donald Trump, you did.

Stop passing the buck to God.

God isn’t defacing prayer rooms.

God isn’t taunting gay teenagers.

God is not bullying kids on buses.

God is not carrying torches through cities.

God isn’t threatening Muslim families.

Lots of white people (many who claim to be Christians are.)

Perhaps appropriate for this end of Easter Sunday, during National Poetry Month:

At the tomb of love

I came to say I was wrong,

                  apologize,

                  start anew.

But you were already gone,

                        stone rolled away,

                        leaving me

alone.
