Let the Record Show

Let the record show that I did not consent to this.

Let it show that I did not vote for this man, that he did not represent me, that I did not believe he was deserving of being here, that I grieved his ascension.

Let history record my objection to him, to the ways he humiliated women and vilified Muslims and threatened protesters and disregarded people of color.

Let it record my repulsion at his tremendous cruelty, his lack of compassion, his contempt for dissension, his absence of simple decency.

I did not write this, and it continues in a longer and moving essay linked here.

The author is a LGBT-welcoming pastor in North Carolina. The world needs more people like him.
