From North Carolina pastor John Pavlovitz:
Ignorance is not a compelling argument.
A friend recently offered a theory that I hear all too often from seemingly reasonable adults right now: Trump supporters are somehow victims of the partisan media/Religious Right Church alternate reality that they’ve been raised in and are still captives of. They’re surrounded by fake news and false stories, and so they aren’t bad people—they just aren’t seeing what we are seeing. We need to be more understanding.
I’m sorry but this isn’t an acceptable justification.
