I happen to pastor a congregation in Washington DC where many of my members work in federal, state and local agencies. Not all, of course, but I know my congregants to be passionate about justice and compassionate for the marginal. They are certainly not swamp beasts. The invective discharged by a certain candidate about draining the swamp here in DC begs the question, can the Swamp Master drain the swamp?
This candidate oversees a swamp filled with misogynists, racists and anti-semites. Indeed, he not only oversees it but nurtures it. Seriously, drain your own swamp first.
