I can hardly believe it, but I’m about to post the following op ed from from Christianity Today:
No matter the outcome of today’s special election in Alabama for a coveted US Senate seat, there is already one loser: Christian faith. When it comes to either matters of life and death or personal commitments of the human heart, no one will believe a word we say, perhaps for a generation. Christianity’s integrity is severely tarnished.
The race between Republican candidate Roy Moore and Democratic candidate Doug Jones has only put an exclamation point on a problem that has been festering for a year and a half—ever since a core of strident conservative Christians began to cheer for Donald Trump without qualification and a chorus of other believers decried that support as immoral.
The Christian leaders who have excused, ignored, or justified his unscrupulous behavior and his indecent rhetoric have only given credence to their critics who accuse them of hypocrisy. Meanwhile the easy willingness of moderate and progressive Christians to cast aspersions on their conservative brothers and sisters has made many wonder about our claim that Jesus Christ can bring diverse people together as no other can.
Hit the link for more insight that really should have been screamed from rooftops in 2015-16 … and was not.
Below the fold is a reminder of the exact words from he who holds the most powerful position on the planet who should be a beacon of morality, of role modelship, of enlightened reason and American family values.
Which if he is those things, I’m so glad I do not share values with those who share his views.
