Since “the announcement”, I have spent several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony. I have reflected carefully on both sides of the issue, prayed a lot, talked with family and friends, and searched my soul.
I’ve tried to tell myself that by not going to the inauguration, that I would be able to stay in Choir for all the other good reasons.
I have highly valued the mission of the Choir to be good- will ambassadors for Christ, to share beautiful music and to give hope, inspiration, and comfort to others.
I’ve tried to tell myself that it will be alright and that I can continue in good conscience before God and man.
But it’s no use. I simply cannot continue with the recent turn of events. I could never look myself in the mirror again with self respect.
Towards the end of her post Chamberlin adds this: I only know I could never “throw roses to Hitler.” And I certainly could never sing for him.
So not only can Donald Trump NOT get any A listers to perform at his inauguration, now even the usually nameless dancers and singers are refusing to perform.
At this rate the only ones that will show up to perform for the inauguration of Putin's puppet will be one American idol runner up, Ted Nugent, and a choir hastily thrown together of Trump hotel employees.
On a slightly different topic, how is that Freedom Concert coming along?
