Jesus teaches us to love even Donald Trump

‘Love your enemies,’ Jesus said. But does the daunting concept really apply to our hostile politics today? Can Democrats love conservatives? Is it possible for Hillary Clinton supporters to – gasp – love Donald Trump? Can Trump be loved even by Republicans who are convinced he is destroying their party? Yes, actually. Read more
