Where is Martin Neimoller?

Televangelist Pat Robertson said Trump was a “harbinger of the Apocalypse” and the return of Jesus was imminent.

“Now we have a man of God back in the White House, Jesus Christ will soon return,” said Robertson. “Sure, he’ll massacre all the atheists, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, yoga practitioners, witches, psychologists, Scientologists and alien worshippers, but once that’s done we will have 1,000 years of peace on Earth.”

**********

I grew up an atheist. I was a Sufi (Muslim) for 2 years. My background is Jewish. I have “practiced” within Hindu traditions. I have been a yoga practitioner for over 40 years. I know people who are devoted Wiccans, and I am a psychologist (don’t have much contact with Scientologists and alien worshippers, though).

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

PS: Robertson didn’t really say that, by the way. The quote is from a satirical site. But did you think for a moment he really did?
