Yoho, an American idiot

The news is out: [Republican Rep. Ted Yoho on Saturday resigned from the board of the Christian anti-poverty organization Bread for the World days after he verbally attacked Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The non-profit announced that it “sought [Yoho’s] resignation” after determining that his “recent actions and words as reported in the media are not reflective of the ethical standards expected of members of our Board of Directors” and “the values of respect and compassion that Jesus calls on us to exhibit every day.”
The organization said it hoped to reaffirm “our commitment to coming alongside women and people of color, nationally and globally, as they continue to lead us to a more racially inclusive and equitable world.”
The group added that it hopes government leaders will “find the moral courage and political will to foster healing and civil dialogue” on policy issues, particularly those concerning the ongoing pandemic.]

It’s not shocking that Yoho was a member of a Christian organization. Religion has been at the forefront of racism and degradation of women for over 2,000 years. Read the damn bible, people.
