    Dear Bishop Mathes,

    Thank you for your courage in speaking out against the Trump regime. All Christians should be as strong in standing up to this anti-American dictator.

    Blessings,

    Patty Campbell, St. John’s, Fallbrook

    Dear Bishop Mathews,

    We receive The Abundant Life newsletter from The Church of St. Paul in the Desert as we worship there when we visit our son in Palm Springs.

    I want to thank you for speaking out about the situation we are finding ourselves in since the recent election.

    I pray that others will join you by having the courage to speak their heart.

    I took the liberty of posting it on Facebook.

    God bless you.

    Your comments about the politics of the day, regardless of your opinions, have no place in the church. You will split the church between red and blue. Stick to preaching the Gospel!

    I find it abhorrent for a Christian clergyman to enter into the realm of political discourse. Where is our historical separation of church and state?
    Our precious Lord has taught us that this world is broken. However, we should be praying for all people to see God’s plan for them, not to publicly condemn one’s actions, especially in political matters.
    Further, to incite christians to “speak out” against a sitting president is not a Godly act. We are called to make the light of the Lord shine through us for all to see and to console those who are in pain.

    Thank you Jim, for encouraging all of us to stand up and oppose this very sad and frightening direction President Trump and his congressional supporters are taking our country.
