Jackie G.

My name is Jackie Guensler and I am a Christian.

I am also a progressive.

I am very disturbed that some of our elected representatives in Washington think that the two are incompatible.

One of the great strengths of our great nation has been separation of church and state.

We are dangerously close to ignoring that fine tradition which has been a guiding force to all those who have walked the Halls of Congress before us.

If the representatives of the people of the United States use their Christian faith to guide them, then, as a fellow Christian, I urge those same members of Congress and The President to ask themselves in their hearts: What Would Jesus Do?

Would he promote wedge issues to divide people ?

Would he promote war ?

Would he try to make the wealthy even wealthier ?

Would he deny help to the sick and the poor and the needy ?

Would he try to block representation by the minority in the Senate ?

No !!!!!!

So, you see, Representatives of the people in Washington need to actually represent all the people and stop trying to divide the people of this country on religious grounds, for political gain.

And, most importantly, they need to remember that they are not in the Pulpit; they are governmental representatives. Sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.

We are not a theocracy. We are a representative democracy.

Let us remain clearly so.
