“MexiChrist”: new icon in Images of Christ series

“MexiChrist” drawing by nakedpastor David Hayward

This is a drawing of a Mexican immigrant worker. He’s holding an orange that he’s harvested for his employer. He’s got a family. You can see his wedding ring. You can see his two children. A boy and a girl.

The father is afraid. He is very worried. He’s been a hard worker for so many years and his family is just starting to enjoy the kind of life he dreamed of years ago. But that might end as soon as November.

But his two children are afraid too. They were born in the USA. They are hiding because they heard at school today that this doesn’t matter. Their mom and dad are going to be sent back to Mexico, where they came from twelve years ago. They may be going too. They don’t know.

It depends on whether Trump gets elected or not.

    All too often I hear Matthew 25 cited in some form or fashion only with the first half. “When have we fed you? When have we clothed you?” Sadly, (and I speak from my Christian upbringing) we all too often ignore the second half where we’re condemned for ignoring those who are on hard times, or worse – blaming the victim for bad luck, things out of their control. It’s sad, but it’s a reality.
