Trump trying to get inauguration performers has turned into one of the most hilarious parts of the past few weeks. Sure, there are many serious things we have to contend with (and this viral article points them out perfectly), but it’s nice to be able to have a laugh at Trump’s expense every now and then.
And not only have tons of celebrities just utterly blown him off in terms of performing at his inauguration, but it’s getting to the point where even regular people aren’t agreeing to perform. In its own way, that is a kind of protest…and as we’ve seen, all kinds of unexpected people are coming together to protest!
And after this man’s church choir agreed to perform, he had some words to share: “My heart sank when I heard the news last Thursday. I love the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The thought of this choir and Mormonism being forever associated with a man who disparages minorities, brags about his sexual control of women, encourages intolerance and traffics in hate speech and bullying, was unacceptable.
I immediately knew there were probably thousands of people who felt the same way, so I created the space on Change.org for like-minded Mormons and their friends to share their feelings.” And others responded in kind, showing that the petition will make a change indeed!
“As a woman and Mormon of color and who supports the general authority’s message of inclusivity and tolerance, I am now appalled by this decision.” Good. It’s time for people not to be silent and sitting back any longer, we must instead act. Will you take this grassroots call to action to resist Trump?
