MISTAKES ARE NOT INHERENTLY EVIL

Some people say Trump followers are evil
Because they intentionally hurt the poor, immigrants, and the sick
But neither Socrates nor Jesus would go that far –
Instead, they would say that Trump followers are “mistaken” –
People who’ve been misled or who’ve worked at misleading themselves.

Once shown the truth –
Once the truth is discovered –
They’ll see, and, turn
Back to goodness and the truth in full.

Even the most evil-sanctioning of men can turn –
Yes, even after decades of throwing their support towards society’s greatest evils
They can still turn
Back to a God who welcomes them.

Yes, there’s hope for most of us –
Perhaps, even for the best of us.
