A more vacuous commander cannot be found than Mike Pence. If he was the poster boy for followers of the Saviour of the world most people would turn away in disgust. Who has not noted Pence’s fawning praise of the gloating bigot in the White House with incredulity? He must be likened to the small and opportunistic predator-scavenger. Thankfully the ancient scriptures contain a precise expression that applies to a group. Pence and the GOP are infamously scavenging cowards, whose fall is as certain as the riding of a wall of ignorance and bigotry.
Ezekiel (13:4) said of Israel
Your prophets have been like jackals among ruins, O Israel.
He also explains this jackal phenomenon with uncanny parallels to the situation in the 21st century.
Precisely because they have misled my people, saying, Peace, when there is no peace, and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear it with whitewash, say to those who smear it with whitewash that it shall fall! There will be a deluge of rain, and you, O great hailstones, will fall, and a stormy wind break out. And when the wall falls, will it not be said to you, Where is the coating with which you smeared it? Ezekiel 13:10-12
The connection to violence and bribes is made in Ezekiel 13:19
You have profaned me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, putting to death souls who should not die and keeping alive souls who should not live, by your lying to my people, who listen to lies.
